I don't know about you, but when I woke up this morning to see snow on the ground, the 8 year old me was more than satisfied. I got home close to midnight last night and although it was cold (when is it not in England?) there was no sign of snow anywhere so I was shocked. Of course I soon realised that despite it setting, and being miles better than that slush/sleet we only ever seem to get these days, there isn't enough for snowman building, snow angels, or snow ball wars. Instead, I put Ivy in her Christmas jumper and took her outside for her first experience of snow! She was not amused...

As much as I would love her to enable me to do a bit of calender style 'cute-kitten-in-the-snow' type photography, she did not like the snow one bit so I don't think I'm going to get anything cuter than her cowering under the garden table unfortunately!

Moving on, I feel the snow was some form of communication from the greater good that yes, today's post must be on the best winter accessories. So here we go...
A little overpriced but a delight none the less. Everyone needs a cute go-to, go-with-everything beanie during the colder months and this one is fab. You can't go wrong with a neutral colour like this in navy, or perhaps grey or black. I bought a burgundy oxblood-ish colour one from ASOS for only £6, but it's very large and quite hard to style to make sure it doesn't look like it's swallowing my head whole! This one looks like much better sizing.

Due to its length, this scarf can either be styled as shown in the picture or double wrapped; both key trends during winter where scarves are concerned. I love the Autumnal colour and the cute pom-poms make it even more fun for the fashion eye. Did I mention that it's an absolute bargain too?

Fancy matching your beanie to your scarf? Then go for this gorgeous style from ASOS. It's even in the sale so go go go!

For the more bad-ass side of you...ta dah!
I adore these gloves and their "rock n' roll" edge. Leather gloves are in. Studs are in. It's a match made in fashion heaven. Again, they're in the sale!
P.S. River Island have some very similar at pretty much the same price, I can't decide which are nicer so check them out!

To put it mildly, I am in love with these gloves. Yes to tweed, Yes to leather and a big YES to orange!

Pair these with some shearling mittens (I've seen a killer pair I'm saving for on Ebay!) and you're good to go!

Miss Selfridge have a couple of nice fur options, my favourite being this one (the gorgeous burgundy/plum colouring is so on trend) and a neutral faux fur headband. 

This neck warmer was just made for warmth, and I'm pretty sure it would look good under your winter coat, over your cosiest jumper or even just hanging up waiting to be worn!

These are just a few of my favourite options out there for warmth at the moment. Have you seen any gorgeous winter accessories this year?
