By Gina Glickman Giordan
Baby it's COLD outside!
Post holiday season and we are a few days into the new year, 2018.
This year the Spring Equinox is on March 20th. We are barely mid-way through winter. Some of us still have to endure another 77 days of record breaking cold temps and snow! Savvy shoppers know right NOW is the perfect time of year to take advantage of some mid-winter season sales on just about everything! At the moment, we here at THE WANNA can't get enough of that warm and cozy feeling all day long. Thats why we put together a list of mid-winter must haves that will have you and your fur kids, covered in cozy sherpa from the second you wake-up till the moment you slip into bed. Sherpa, fleece, shearling, it's all the same to us! Soft, warm and cozy is the main goal. Here are some warm and cozy must haves that you wouldn't necessarily expect to be lined in sherpa and they are all absolutely worth investing in right now! Stay warm and happy hunting!
THE WANNA XO
SHERPA SHEET SET - Get your priorities straight people. If you can only afford one item on this list, start with a pair of these "SOFT and COZY" brand of life altering bed sheets. The right sheets can literally change your life. We all need to sleep and when it's freezing outside there is nothing better than slipping into a cloud of sherpa! We personally tested out a ton of brands. The consensus is that they all attract static cling. So, keep a can of "Static Guard" around this time of year. The higher priced sets maybe better tailored and slightly thicker but, any price point on plush sheets and you can't go wrong HSN sells a brand called "SOFT AND COZY" and the name truly speaks for itself. Splurge away. You won't regret it!
SHERPA COMFORTER SET - VCNY is known for their well made yet moderately priced bedding sets. We LOVE the velvet and sherpa / fleece lined reversible comforter set in a slew of bejeweled colors to go with any decor. Velvet on one side and soft cozy sherpa on the other! Sherpa-riffic!
SHERPA NECK WARMER - PLUSH brand designer, Jennifer Kim is one of us. She obviously has a deep love of everything sherpa, warm and cozy. The designer took a fresh approach to creating stylish cold weather accessories including: tights, leggings and this affordable, stylish sherpa neck warmer sold at ShopBop.com. Peruse the entire PLUSH collection, you will fall in love.
SHERPA ROBE - Who says sherpa can't be sexy? Just ask Victoria's Secret. Their "Luxe Fleece Pom Pom Robe" defines sherpa sexy. Hurry click the live link, your significant other will thank you.
SHERPA BOOTIES - Yes, Ugg is the original of everything shearling and sherpa lined. So, naturally we would suggest the UGG CLASSIC BOOT when it comes to keeping your tootsies warm and cozy outside. When you are inside (home or office) the sherpa obsession continues with these sherpa lined slippers from Ugg. No socks required!
SHERPA DOGGIE BOOTIES- Ugg we already LOVE you dearly for creating your world famous boots in all shapes and styles...Now, if that wasn't enough, we can share the love of sherpa with our fur-kids! Matching sherpa dog booties for your bestie with four legs! Genius!
SHERPA HOODIE - Not all sherpa hoodies are created equal. This Free People "Fluffy Dolman Jacket" is like slipping into a cloud of cozy! Love the sherpa style, neutral colors and the fact that you can layer this under anything. Splurge worthy and a big hit this winter season!
SHERPA COAT - J.Crew is the master of cashmere but, this season they also re-defined sherpa. The infamous "Teddy Coat" gets a sophisticated makeover from J.Crew this season. We LOVE the "Plush Fleece" in the "Deep Peri" hue but, the version in black is forever classic. Talk about huggable for hours and hours.
SHERPA LEGGINGS - If you are on a post-holiday season budget (like us) and can't afford to splurge on PLUSH brand's version of amazingly stylish fleece lined Moto leggings then you will especially LOVE this affordable, sherpa lined version of leggings from HUE on sale at Macy's right now for under $20 bucks!
SHERPA GLOVES - If you imagine the perfect pair of cold weather gloves they would be stylish, affordable, touch screen and lined in yep, you guessed it, SHERPA! Thanks to Eddie Bauer, you don't have to imagine, they really do exist. A slew of colors and styles and all on sale for under $15 bucks! You're welcome! Happy texting!
SHERPA HAT - CROWN CAP based in Canada is one of our favorite brands for cold weather accessories. Their array of impeccably made assorted fur hats are beautiful yet, also practical. No joke (sorry PETA) but, when it's -10 degrees outside, fur gets the job done. This pick from CC is vintage leather and lined in sherpa, super stylish and moderately priced so if you leave it in a cab or lose it at the bar, it's not the end of the world...Well maybe.
SHERPA THROW - Thanks to CARSTENS your new fav snuggle buddy comes in several colors and styles. Think Aspen meets a log cabin, moose tracks, bears and pine trees overlooking a tranquil snowy sunset surrounded by sherpa. The best part is this baby travels.
