20 Everyday Winter Essentials

What types of things do you buy everyday? Round these parts it varies greatly…of course there are the norms, like the last minute salad ingredients, the occasional tank of gas, and this week for me a much-needed haircut. Then there are times where I get to focus on beautiful cashmere or just the right beanie. It’s cold right? These things could be considered essentials as well on some level. Regardless of your everyday items, the perfect card geared towards your personal everyday is the American Express EveryDay Credit Card. It's the card that rewards for the essential: 20% more points when you hit 20 swipes per month. I have had the pleasure sharing this collaboration with you this past year and have had a ton of fun creating lists of my 20 essentials…this last list maybe my favorite.

Winter essentials are near and dear to me because I am often colder than I would like…I have to say sweaters, parkas and boots are definitely essentials for me this time of year.

Who says “everyday essentials” can't be incredibly nice looking?
