Ever since I started a quest to make my closet “feel good”, I’ve been much more conscious of my shopping habits. One of the ways I’ve been more conscious is to look for a feel good alternative when I fall in love with something I know may not feel good to buy. Here are a few of my favorite winter items, as well as their feel good alternative to consider.

  1. This is awesome! I love when you can recreate fashion outfits at a cheaper price! These are some great products!

  2. Those are all great choices! A lot of times, I see wardrobe suggestions and they are all impractical for my lifestyle. But these are all so cozy and comfy! I live in Upstate NY and the winters here are long and cold, so I’m all for warm!
