sweater

Sweater, $60

Buy it: The Limited

lotion

Crafty by Nature skin repair cream, $7

Buy it: EcoFlora

Made in Columbus, this thick lotion works magic on Old Man Winter-ravaged skin. For a Crafty by Nature selection that a little less “nighttime beauty regimen,” a little more “sits on my work desk,” try the vegan “I Love You” pump lotion, $12 at EcoFlora.
