What’s your coziest winter attire?

I love a great wool coat—I can’t stop collecting them. Of course (I have) basic black but I love fun details and rich colors—I even have plaid.

How about your favorite winter layers?

Fleece-lined leggings, a tunic and long statement cardigan. For work adding a colorful, patterned infinity scarf to an outfit adds a layer of coziness.

What’s your fave song on repeat these days?

“Creature Fear”—some throwback Bon Iver. Bon Iver is such wintery music—I can practically see the snow falling outside when I listen to it.

Best tip to get through the dark days of winter?

Laughter. During the holidays I try to get together with as many old friends as possible and nothing lifts your spirits during these long nights like laughing until your stomach hurts.

On a practical note, I have the heaviest, loftiest, coziest down comforter and a heated mattress pad—which is the best invention ever. I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

And, So. Much. Coffee.

Cuddling on cold days, yay or nay?

We have two young kids and our little family cuddles in a big pile (for about 30 seconds before the kids squirm away). Getting a hug with their tiny little arms wrapped around your neck is pretty much the best feeling in the world.

What makes you unique? I guess you would say I am an optimist. I try to look at the positive side of things and give people the benefit of the doubt.
