5 Reasons To Love The Winter Season

5 Reasons To Love The Winter Season The winter season doesn’t always have to be a drag you know…. As a winter advocate, I say this with confidence. There is much more to the winter season than meets the eye, believe me.

Thinking that there is nothing pleasant about the winter season? I bet I can prove you wrong…

The Winter Food

For starters, this is  one of the only times of the year that Mallomars are sold in stores. Also, try and tell me that you don’t obsess over the delicious soups that come out to play during the winter season. Snowed in on a Friday night? This is your perfect excuse as to why you MUST order Chinese food. Other winter favorites include home made cookies, hot chocolate, and peppermint lattes from Starbs (naturally had to reference Starbucks at least once in this blog post). Gee, now I’m hungry.

The Opportunities

The winter season comes with tons of opportunities. Still need that summer body? No worries, the winter season gives you 3 or so months of nothing but clothes that cover up every inch of your body. Finish off that bag of chips that you’re munching on right now and head to the gym! Other fun ways to exercise in the winter include skiing and snowboarding. Getting fit isn’t the only opportunity that winter brings. Being stuck at home on snow days calls for binge watching Netflix or doing something really exuberant like starting a blog….

The Fashion

It’s cold, so you decide to wear a sweatshirt… and sweatpants…. and fuzzy socks. But it’s cold so this is 100 percent acceptable. I wouldn’t describe myself as any type of fashion guru but I must say that the winter is one of my favorite fashion seasons because you can layer on layer. Layering is one of the few fashion styles that I know how to wear.

The Smell

The cold actually has a scent. A mix of Christmas trees, peppermint, and fresh air is how I would describe it.

Dogs In Sweaters

Seriously, it doesn’t get much better than this.

    Yes! I love winter! I kept peeking out my window waiting for snow like a five year old last night. People are always hating on the season once Christmas is over but there’s so many good things about it like you’ve outlined here. I’ve got a cozy sweater on, a Vanilla Snowflake candle is burning, and there’s warm soup in the slow cooker downstairs. xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias

    OMG Dogs in sweaters I am dead! I’m not a big fan of the cold! I don’t mind a mild winter, but I am not dying for snow haha!

  • Miss ALK

    I’m not really a winter girl but I feel you on the foods! Nothing beats delicious holiday treats or takeout Asian food (like you mentioned- haha!).

    I always tell people how much I love getting to see dogs in sweaters. It is legit one of my favorite things about the winter — the outfits on the Upper East Side of Manhattan are on another level.

  • Kayla S

    I’m definitely into the winter smells — still burning my Christmas candles!

    Winter is my favorite season! But by far my favorite things are the winter smells. Seriously though, I have no idea how cold air smells so great, but it does! I still have all my favorite winter candles out too because I can’t get enough! (If you’re a fan of toasted marshmallow candles, the one from Francesca’s is AMAZING!)


  • Lauren Ashley

    Dogs in sweaters is definitely my favorite! I am dying! I used to dress up my pugs before they got way too fat. Hah!

    Yess!! The smell. I am all about the “smells of the seasons.” There’s nothing better than the smell of snow or a good candle. (Or homemade cookies/meals)

    Yay for dogs in sweaters! I actually love winter fashion, what an upbeat post!

  • I’m from Florida, and I’m always so envious of y’all northerners who get to dress is cute layers and snow gear! I’m SURE the grass is greener, though! 🙂
