Sometimes if you can cuddle into something warm, the outside temperature becomes much more enjoyable. There are lots of beautiful accessories for winter available for kids at this time of year. Many are super cute but are also very useful in terms of making the cooler months easier for your kids to tolerate. And we all want them to spend some time outside during winter, don't we?! Even when you're indoors it can be wonderful to snuggle up with a pair of slippers and a warm throw and watch a dvd together on the colder days of winter.
Neutral tones are great options for accessories, so you can maximum use of the item without thinking too hard about what to pair with them (not to mention using them for any future siblings that might come along!). Think greys, warm winter whites and deep navy or black. Sometimes though, it's hard to surpass the beautiful, bright colours available... they just make you feel happy even when skies are grey.
