Fall is on the horizon and with the cooler temperatures come boots, leggings, and cozy hoodies for me! The weather in New York quickly changes during the fall and the gorgeous leaves start falling all over the place. I love to get out and walk and take in the brisk air before the frigid winter sets in. Here is a list of just a few of my fall must haves and cool weather essentials.
Like for real. These leggings are the bomb! They are so comfortable and classic. They are a bit more snug than yoga pants, and are fitted in all the right places. I love how high waisted they are because it gives a really smooth waistband that shirts glide right over. These are a bit warmer than faux leather leggings I have worn in the past and can easily be worn over tights for an even warmer look. They are machine washable, so no more spending money on pricey (and potentially toxic) dry cleaning. Whoop whoop!
The style and class of these boots is only matched by their functionality. I mean, come on, they are platform wedge lightweight snowboots for goodness sakes. All the love. They keep my toes toasty warm during cold weather and look super chic with just about anything I throw on. I’ve worn them with every thing from leggings and jeans to dresses and skirts with tights.
Speaking of tights, have you discovered sweater tights? Best invention ever for us girls that live in colder climates. Can be a bit annoying because of how thick they are, but worth it for all the coziness.
I walk everywhere in New York City. This ultra-soft, relaxed fit hoodie is a staple for me. I love that it has an oversized hood and thumbholes to keep my hands warm. It comes down to my hips so it’s perfect over my yoga gear. Get this hoodie.
I love this hot water bottle that comes with its own cozy, knit cover. Mine has soothed many a sore muscle and warmed my toes on cold nights. Throw it in your bed an hour before you crawl in for added warmth. It brings comforting relief during that time of the month and for use with castor oil packs. I’ve even been known to use it just to keep warm (a.k.a. husband replacement).
This is not just one of my must haves for the fall. Because this bottle goes with me everywhere, all the time, it is a general must have. It keeps drinks cold for up to 24-hours or hot for about 12 hours. I can take my hot tea with me on a blustery day and it stays warm to the last drop. Plus, there is a design and pattern for every person.
