Living in a NYC apartment, I'm short on closet space, so I try to buy clothes that work for multiple seasons, looks and occasions. Here are some of my favorite fall and winter items for me and my toddler.
I buy a new cashmere scarf every year. I wear one from my collection most days of fall and winter.
I live in cashmere beanies at least six months of the year! They are super comfortable, chic and light enough to keep on indoors. My favorites are from MiniMains (pictured) and Uniqlo. My son and I both have the MiniMains one (and love twining), and my husband and I both have the Uniqlo one (and try to avoid twinning).
This jacket was one of the best purchases that I made for my son. He is now almost four and I’ve been buying it for him every winter since he was one. I usually buy slightly large and it still fits and looks brand new the next season.
This jacket is super lightweight and comfortable and can take you from fall to winter if you add a fleece underneath (see below).
Some of the infant (0-24 months) styles have fold over mitts, which take the place of mittens. It also comes in a snowsuit version, and in big kid to adult sizes (scroll through images above)
I recommend buying both the jacket and the North Face Glacier fleece (see below), as the two fit well together.
I like the Glacier fleece because it is thin yet warm and has a hood that fits well and can work in place of a hat. The Columbia Steen II fleece, which is touted as car seat safe, is also popular. I find the Glacier to be much more comfortable for my son and to fit better under a jacket. It also is thin enough to be worn while in the car seat.
What I'm still working on figuring out is what mittens to get for my toddler. Can you recommend a pair that is easy to get on and stay on?
