Let me just take a moment to say that it is indeed snowing here in South Carolina. As this is a rare occurrence, everyone, including myself, is freaking out. Although it’s strange to see palmetto trees and other southern icons dusted with snow, the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Take a look:
As you may have guessed, this post isn’t geared towards chatting about freak winter storms. No, I’d rather talk about what i’ve seen people wearing around campus this week! In case you didn’t know, here at the University of South Carolina temperatures can rise to about 65 one day, then drop to 20 the next!
Here are my most-spotted pieces:
1. Hunter Boots
Okay i’ll admit it, these things are a good investment. Not only for the rain, but for the snow too! Jump on the bandwagon and buy a pair of these rain boots. Plus, they’re available in almost any color under the sun.

2. Winter Headbands
One of my favorite winter essentials! These give you all the warmth of a hat, without all the commitment. Also, there are so many different types! Lululemon has a great version that keeps you warm while walking, exercising, or just playing!

3. Tech Gloves
This could quite possibly be the greatest innovation since sliced bread. No more having to take your gloves off to use a touch screen! To be honest, I was skeptical at first. Now I have them in three colors! These gloves for everyday outings will keep your fingers warm in style!

What are you waiting for? Go out and enjoy the cold weather! Just make sure you dress for the occasion.
