Baby it's cold outside: Winter coats and accessories

Winter has officially arrived in Texas, in case you were wondering.  I've been freezing my tail off for days, and the coats have officially come out of the closet.  Now that I've been walking around in my old coat that I keep meaning to get hemmed and mended, I am noticing lots of gorgeous options on the internets.  Plus, I wanted to share some of my top picks for other cold weather accessories that won't make you look like a kid from A Christmas Story.

Let's start with the most important splurge - a nice coat that fits well.  I'm dying for a new trench in a bright color like emerald green or bright blue.  I'm also drawn to fun details like an unexpected ruffle or gold zipper.

Warm and cozy accessories are also a must, and I'm loving options in colors besides basic black.  I'm also insistent that hats do not ruin my hair for the rest of the day, which is a challenge.

And finally, I think rubber boots are a must when it's wet and possibly snowy.  Everyone and her cousin loves Hunter wellies, but there are tons of other cute options out there!

Now I wish we had more than 2.5 months of cold weather!  What's you're most indispensable winter accessory?
