Winter Clothing for My Newborn - What to Buy and How to Dress

Hi all, I am expecting my baby in October and need advice on how to dress her during the Winter. She'd be hardly 1-4 months then, and Chicago has bad winters. What stuff should I buy, how do I dress her if/when I need to take her out? How do I dress her at home? I read somewhere that heating at home should be maintained at not more than 70F, and am planning to do the same.. Need suggestions on what blankets/clothing to buy for her... Help please, and thank you in advance!
