A huge thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post!
I have spent the majority of my life dwelling in the very north of Michigan, which means I know winter. To be a happy local, you can’t just know winter, however, you need to embrace it — love it — BECOME IT. Okay, maybe I’m getting carried away, but there is absolute freedom in fully submitting to the sentiment that there isn’t bad weather — only bad clothing choices. If you know how to dress for winter, you really don’t have a reason to not totally enjoy it, too!
If you ask me — a self-certified winter expert — there are a handful of essentials you should have in your closet every winter, and lucky for us, Nordstrom has a plethora of options in all of them. There are of course the obvious items you need, like a heavy snow jacket and boots, hats, scarves, and mittens, but I’m talking about the essentials beyond that.
UGG Boots, Flannel PJ’s & Fleece Hoodies: Nordstrom Has Our Winter Essentials
To complete the perfect winter wardrobe, you need Ugg boots, a sherpa fleece jacket and flannel pajamas. These three items will keep you happy and comfortable both outdoors and inside all season, no matter how long winter lasts!
1. Start With UGG Boots & Slippers
In my opinion, you should always, always have a pair of Ugg boots in your winter wardrobe. When I was searching the Nordstrom website to find a new pair for this year, I was struck by just how many different shoe options they make! You don’t have to settle for their classic shearling boot, if that’s not your style — but if it is (like ME! I always have been and always will be a fan), there are countless options like the Mini, the Ultra Mini, ones with bows, and even with buttons!
You can use them as shoes for going out around town, or you can keep them for the perfect house shoe (which proves especially lovely if you have hardwood floors). The Nordstrom collection of Ugg slippers is pretty incredible too. The warmth of both the boots and slippers simply just CANNOT BE BEAT, I’m telling you.
2. Add A Fleece Hoodie For Extra Warmth
A sherpa jacket is also a winter must-have. You can find them in a full front zipper for easy on and off, or opt for a pullover if you’re craving that cozy sweatshirt vibe. Either way, it’s the one item I am always reaching for when I’m running out the door for a quick errand, and on cold winter nights, if the fireplace hasn’t quite warmed me up yet.
3. Cozy Up In Flannel Pajamas
The last winter essential I swear by is a pair of flannel pajamas. Growing up, flannel sheets were often outfitting our beds, but it was always a rude awakening to have to get out of bed and shuffle to the bathroom — leaving those warm sheets was almost impossible. So why just cover your bed in flannel, when you can cover YOUR ENTIRE BODY?! I know, I know, I’m brilliant. And you will be, too, when you put a pair of flannel pajamas in your winter wardrobe.
Slippers | Socks | Fleece Hoodie
Finding your perfect essentials is super-duper easy and convenient with Nordstrom because (hey, hello) free shipping and returns! But if you’re a lucky individual who lives nearby an actual Nordstrom store, don’t forget about their buy online pick-up in-store and curbside pickup options, too!! Maybe the best part of it all? The Nordy Club, which allows you to stack up rewards when you purchase your new winter wardrobe essentials. Yes and amen.
PS: It was a complete but amazing surprise to discover these Ugg socks — I ordered a pair from Nordstrom on a whim and was blown away by how soft they are. I’ve been reaching for this one pair as many days as I can seem to wash them; I am definitely ordering more!! Consider them your bonus fourth needed essential! 😉
