Monthly Shopping Guide: What To Buy In December


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing a red sweater dress and a burberry scarf for winter 2018The countdown to Christmas and the New Year is finally here! Although I’m super excited for the holidays, I admit I’m a little sad that 2018 is coming to an end rather quickly. With that said, the arrival of December is a sign that winter is near. In fact, it officially starts in less than 3 weeks, which means those of you living up north or on the East Coast can expect snow and ice to start rolling in. With that in mind, I wanted to make my December shopping guide all about winter wardrobe staples and outfit ideas for Christmas. Since it’s been so cold in Minnesota lately, I made sure to include lots of practical pieces you can wear on repeat and make use of through a blizzard if necessary. Pieces like puffer jackets and sneakers will get you through each day while sweater dresses will help you put your best foot forward by Christmas. Here are all the pieces worth buying this month.

Winter Staples


Water Resistant Coat

I swear by my winter parkas because they're usually wind and waterproof. This one is under $200 and is comparable to some of the more expensive brands out there.

Michael Kors

Puffer Jacket

What I love most about puffer jackets is that they're so lightweight yet warm. As temperatures dip further in December, this one makes a great everyday staple.

Chunky Knit Sweater

I practically live in sweaters come December. So many of my favorite H&M sweaters sold out, but this is a new arrival that I'm currently eyeing.
