If you're like me, you may remember your mom wrapping you up for your walk or bus ride to school...or maybe she just wrapped you up to walk from the house to the car. Either way, I distinctly remember how hideous I thought so many of things were that she was layering on me to keep me warm. Think of it as the typical kid taking a mother's caring for granted ...thanks mom - I know better now. Anywho, as I grew up, I thought those silly winter accessories would grow on me...but, alas...I still hated them. Even today, I was walking my three blocks to work in the chilly gusts of fall/winter air thinking...I'm so cold - maybe those ugly earmuffs wouldn't be that bad? Well, I have good news for anyone else out there who is easily chilled by this chilly weather and looking for a fashionable compromise.
Companies have finally learned to create items that will not only keep us warm, but that will look chic, too!

I'm seriously eyeing those Burberry earmuffs - too cute! I never thought I'd say that about earmuffs!
