I have such trouble with this. I tend to think in categories instead of specifics. I think my winter essentials are:
- Turtlenecks in dark colors
-Black pants in multiple styles and fabrications
-Equestrian pants in different colors
- Jeggings in different colors
-Booties specifically Black and Tan
-Quilted vests that zip
- Open front sweaters tunic length or longer
-Memory jewelry that links me to loved ones, specifically yellow diamond engagement/wedding rings and sea glass pieces.
-A smile

Truth be told, a smile and jewlery are essentials and perhaps my signature. (Can they be both?). I feel naked without them.
