It’s absolutely freezing in New York right now — the kind of cold that hurts the second you step outside and that prompts you to run to CVS for a new moisturizer because you’re pretty sure your face is going to fall off. But enough about how much I love winter! 😉 Here are a few cold weather necessities in heavy rotation right now…

What are some of your winter must-haves? Do share before I leave for Salt Lake City tomorrow… If I can’t handle 28 degrees, I can only imagine how pleasant I’ll be at 14 😉

P.S. Thanks for your awesome NYC recommendations! I’ve made a master list and already started crossing off a few of your favorites. (All I can say is you all have great taste!) I’ll be sure to share on the blog but in the mean time if you’re planning a trip or just looking to try a new spot, I highly suggest browsing the comments right here!

Keep up with Design Darling

  1. You didn’t have lip balm listed, but I’m sure you know to include that! I’m a fan of Burt’s Bees, it’s waxy enough to last, but not as nasty as Chapstick. Try the honey flavored, it’s wonderful!

  2. I’m lucky enough to live in Tennessee, so I don’t have to worry about extreme temps. When it’s cold out though, I definitely need my Cuddl Duds! They are like long johns but super soft 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness Mackenzie, you are going to have such a great time in Salt Lake! Our Park City house is always filled with vaseline and nivea, they are the best for dry skin and lips! Also I drink a ton of water, it helps with my skin, as well as fighting any potential signs of altitude sickness! Have so much fun.

  4. These are all so great! I make sure I always wear warm socks no matter what shoes I wear (well except flats then I suffer).


  5. I know they’re not stylish at all but I live in my UGGs when it’s cold. It’s currently -20 here (about 9 degrees Fahrenheit) and its freezing!
