Limbo Survival Guide

Updated: Jan 30


March 21st, first day of Spring. April 11th, low of 40° and high of 50°.

Today, a chilly 60° currently —with a low of 54°.

What to do? We're virtually in limbo when it comes to this weather. Unsure of how each week will present itself, temperature wise. If you're like me, 40° is freezing and 60° weather is very chilly! You'll surely catch me in a decent sweater and my Urbanears headphones that have been doubling as earmuffs since I first got them last winter. (Does anyone else have sensitive ears? Ears that pain when exposed to cold winds? So much fun isn't it?!)

I'm not a fun of the cold to be honest —guess that's no surprise considering I'm a tropical baby. I've put together some looks and products to get through this "limbo" period. Alas, "The Limbo Survival Guide".

1. CONTIGO

"Autoseal West Loop" (Stainless steel Travel Mug with Easy-Clean Lid), $21

Sleek design, leak proof, spill proof, BPA-free and it keeps warm drinks hot for up to 5 hours + cold drinks cold for up to 12.

2. ORA ORGANIC

"Vegan Vitamin D", $30

Known as the "sunshine vitamin", Vitamin D also helps with bone health and maintaining a healthy immune system. Because we need to care for our body, it's the only one we've got.

3. OTHERLAND

"Amber Vittoria Candle (Otherland Artist Edition #1)", $36

NYC illustrator meets floral scent. Let's channel spring vibes with a lovely new candle, shall we?

4. L.L. BEAN

"Sweater Fleece Pullover Hoodie" (in Sailcloth/Sienna Clay), $89

A warm knit to get you through those chilly days, with super cute color-blocking to add style.

"Craft Brilliant 2.0 Thermal Tights (in Black/Panic)", $100

Athleisure with flare. Whether you're actually working out, going for a run or just running errands, these leggings are not only fashionable but flattering. (Reflective highlights on side panels, so you're seen!)

"Signature Fisherman's Cove Coat" (Colorblock, in Navy/Sailcloth), $199

Colorblock makes its mark yet again! Although this is a light jacket (not lined), it comes in handy on rainy days and you can layer underneath, depending on the temp.

"Signature Cotton Fisherman Sweater", $99

Perfect to wear underneath the Cove Coat! Cozy, home-y vibes, just like Grandma's.

5. STUART WEITZAN

"Chicpearl" Flats, $200 *ON SALE*

So classy! These flats are incredible chic with their suede material and simple pearl accents on the heel.

6. ALADDIN

"Recycled and Recyclable 16oz BPA Free Plastic Travel Mug", $11

Available with a handle, for easy holding. Fun new prints and styles coming soon!

7. VOGUE EYEWEAR, SPECIAL COLLECTION BY GIGI HADID

"V05235S" (Brown Yellow Tortoise Frame with Pink Gradient Violet Lens), $140 + "V05237S" (Brown Yellow Tortoise Frame with Blue Lens), $140

Perfect for those windy, yet sunny, days.

8. HAVEN SPA

"Herbal Poultice Massage", $150 (60 mins) + $185 (90 mins)

Loosen up those tense muscles and improve circulation.

9. URBANEARS

"Plattan 2" (in Comet Green), $49

Double as earmuffs to keep my ears warm :-)

10. URBAN OUTFITTERS

"Turtoise Square Toe Ankle Boots", $50 *ON SALE*

How chic are these boots? They are a casual, easy, throw on style, that you can pair with a lot of different looks. Another plus, the patent faux leather material makes them waterproof, aka you can wear them on rainy days without a prob.

11. VASELINE

"Original Petroleum Jelly, Skin Protectant" (13oz), $5

I personally use this for so many things. i.e. Under my eyes at night, for hours of moisture / on my cuticles / on my lips (occasionally) / on my overall body

Let's just say this stuff is good to have around.

12. SUNDAY RILEY

"The Influencer" (Clean Long Wear Foundation, in color 280), $42

When you're still semi-stuck in your tomboy ways and your fav skincare brand creates a foundation? You try it, and love it, duh. Makeup that doesn't clog your pores, because Sunday Riley respects our skin way too much.
