Transitioning Your Wardrobe Into Colder Weather

In North Carolina, I definitely don't need any heavy duty winter gear, so for those few cold weeks each year and trips to colder weather, I don't really need to invest in a Canada Goose or snow boots. In preparation for an upcoming trip to Europe, I've been stocking up on items that can be incorporated into my existing wardrobe that will keep me warm throughout my trip. These are the items I've purchased so far, but if any of y'all are from places where it gets pretty cold, I would love to hear your recommendations! 

Waterproof Down Coat 
I was searching high and low for a practical waterproof winter coat. I didn't want to spend too much because I knew I wouldn't get much use out of it in North Carolina after my trip. This North Face coat felt comparable to a Canada Goose to me but was half the price. This was the perfect jacket to invest in because it didn't break the bank but is such a high quality piece.

Wool Socks + Silk Liners
I have the fleece lined Bean Boots but they aren't the warmest when there's snow on the ground. I bought a pair of wool socks when I was at the L.L. Bean store in Chicago and ended up ordering 3 more after because they are so so warm (definitely an upgrade from the J. Crew trouser socks I typically wear). Additionally, adding the silk liners as a barrier between your feet and the wool socks keeps your feet dry and blister-free.

Fleece Lined Leggings
I know my jeans aren't going to cut it in the freezing weather, so I Amazon Primed a 3 pack of these fleece lined leggings to layer under my jeans. These ones are slick on the outside so you can pull your jeans on over them and are lined with a more furry material than traditional fleece making them so so soft!

Sherpa Shoe Insoles (for Bean Boots and for Hunter Boots)
Adding these to my Bean Boots and Hunter Boots really made them so much warmer and much more comfortable!

Sherpa Liner for Barbour
I love my Barbour but once the winter weather hits, it's not quite warm enough sometimes. Last year I invested in a sherpa liner that zips into my Barbour Beadnell jacket. The sherpa lining feels so cozy and luxe and really makes the jacket much warmer.
