Places with the best weather in the winter

ADVERTISEMENT


With summer officially over, it’s time to start planning for your upcoming winter break. With so many places to choose from, you may find it challenging to zero in on the ideal vacation spot. To help you, we’ve made a list of the places that have stellar weather during the winter and which would make for truly divine holiday destinations. So what are we waiting for? Let’s jump in.

Atlas Mountains

Morocco’s Atlas Mountains may not be the first place that comes to mind when we speak of winter, but this African desert paradise transforms into a snow-clad fairyland come winter. Mount Toubkal, which summits at 4167 meters, is a great place for adventure enthusiasts and hiking/camping aficionados. If you are looking for a unique winter experience, this one’s for you.

Quebec

The Canadian city of Quebec makes for a great winter destination, especially during the festive season. While Toronto often represents the ‘English’ side of Canada, Montreal is considered as a representation of Continental Europe. The magnificently designed, beautifully decorated and bustling 17th and 18th Century churches, bakeries, libraries, and bistros on the narrow cobblestone roads give tourists plenty of space to sit back, enjoy a cup of coffee, and savor the many visual delights that Quebec has to offer.

Seville

With its mild winters (ranging between 50 – 54 degrees Fahrenheit), bustling Christmas markets, traditional tapas bars, and unique Belén tradition, Seville is the right choice for your upcoming winter break. Indulge in some of Spain’s most decadent winter dishes, visit the mountainous Sierra Norte area, and ring in the New Year with The Three Wise Men. This is sure to be a colorful winter vacation.

Croatia

Whatever the season, the European nation of Croatia is always a beautiful place to visit. But come winter, this beauty is magnified tenfold. Imagine frozen turquoise lakes, snow-clad forests, ancient snow-strapped buildings, festive fairy lights, and the memorable 40-day long Dubrovnik Winter Festival and you’ll understand why Croatia is such fun during the winter. Also, Game of Thrones fans will find some of their favorite locations from the series, such as king’s landing and its surroundings.

Hallstatt

Hallstatt in Austria is a sight for sore eyes. One look at this small lakeside village and you’ll believe in magic. For that’s exactly what life is like in Hallstatt during winter – utterly magical. The majestic snow-clad Salzburg Mountain and the surrounding crystal clear waters will inspire awe in people of all ages. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-visit for those looking for a quiet and romantic winter escape.

Queenstown

If you’re looking to winter in a place that still resembles spring and summer, then New Zealand’s Queenstown is the perfect place to visit. The many mountain ranges, including the Remarkables and Coronet Peak are blanketed both in snow and endemic winter flora. You will have quite a few of opportunities to snowboard, ski, and research plants when here.

So while winter could be hard for everyone sometimes, you’ll find that these places might actually your winter vacation dreamy than ever.

Save on Your Window Replacement This Winter

Most home improvement projects, including window replacements, are started and completed during the spring or fall seasons— when the weather is more comfortable and predictable. However, a home improvement project during high season will likely impact your estimate and project timeline. During these warmer months, contractors and supplies are in high demand. Contractors are less likely to offer discounts when during peak times. To save money on your window replacement, consider scheduling your project during the cooler months.

Save Money with Seasonal Sales and Promotions

Construction slows in the winter, but contractors still have a business to operate. To entice homeowners, many contractors will offer discounts and specials to attract business during the colder months. Take advantage of these seasonal offers to save money on your project.

Simple Scheduling and Cheaper Window Materials

During high season, it can take a few weeks to meet with busy contractors and order window supplies from manufacturers. During the winter months, contractors are more flexible. Materials are also usually less expensive and take less time to ship.

Enjoy Increased Energy Efficiency

Replacing your windows in the winter allows you to immediately see your return on your investment. See reduced energy costs on your utility bill, and enjoy a warmer home with new energy efficient windows.

Don’t Fret About Cold Weather Affecting Installation

Many homeowners are concerned that winter weather will impact caulking, adhesives, and materials. Products are made to perform under all weather conditions. Contractors are also skilled at making sure your home remains comfortable throughout the installation. Contractors will replace one window at a time to avoid significant heat and energy loss in your home.

No Snow? No Problem

While snow and wintery weather affects many locations, southern states enjoy moderate weather year-round. Homeowners in states like Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California should take advantage of seasonal discounts and pricing without much worry of ice and snow.

Fall & Winter Footwear for Midi Skirts and Dresses

There were questions on the forum recently about what type of footwear to wear with midi skirts and dresses for Fall and Winter. There are many, many options across flats and heels and the footwear you choose will depend on how dressy you want to look, and how much you want to elongate your leg line. The higher the heels, the longer the leg line. Personally, I choose flat and very low heels (up to an inch and a half in height).

Here’s my current collection of Fall and Winter midi skirts and dresses. The voluminous olive COS dress is a little longer on me, but not knee-covering. It’s not a true midi because of the short front, but the sides and back are longer so I treat it like a midi. The red floral dresses are knee-covering.

Here’s my assortment of Fall & Winter footwear that I wear with the above skirts and dresses. I sport sheer black hose, nude-for-me-hose and black micro fishnets with the footwear. Sometimes I wear socks with the tall boots instead of hose. There are high-shaft booties with a sleek ankle fit. Western shooties that are extremely tailored on the foot. Refined oxfords, ankle strap pumps, and classic ink blue tailored knee-high boots. TAILORED footwear is my preference. Coincidentally, all shoes have a low heel.

If you don’t get very cold feet like I do, you can wear some of the more open footwear styles I wore with warm-weather midis all Summer long. Leave off the hosiery and socks. Here are my Summer midi dresses and skirts with the shoes that I wore with them. Pointy-toe ballet flats, classic sandals, loafers, mules and white sneakers. All of the shoes here are flat.

I don’t like to wear boots that gape at the ankle or calf with midis. The fit MUST be sleek. I wear a lot of light-coloured footwear because it bookends my blonde hair and looks crisp. I also enjoy some darks, metallics and brights to change things up. Or wearing white footwear with sheer black hose to create a graphic contrast. It works well when the midis are dark, which all my Fall and Winter midis are.

I’d love to get more midis because my outfit happiness factor is through the roof when I wear them. Hands down they are my favourite item to wear in 2018 across the seasons. White jeans and fun pants are a close second.
