Another week with incredibly cold weather. For those of you who live in warmer climates, you just have to take my word for it that this weather is exceptional, even for Chicago. Consistent lows below zero or in the single digits, days upon days of highs MAYBE in the teens. Dry dry dry air, wind to knock you over... just lovely! I actually love winter, but this is even more extreme that I would prefer. But we carry on, in style!
As before, if I can link to my item, or something substantially similar, I will provide a link. The absence of any link means I couldn't find anything close enough...
|Denim Shirt - J.Jill, jeans - Eileen Fisher, earrings - similar here, cardigan - Dublin Woolen Mills, |
scarf - Nordstrom, boots, Bogs
I know I've mentioned it before, but these Bogs boots are the WARMEST I've ever owned. They're not pretty, but in Chicago, in February, when the temperature is 11 degrees Fahrenheit at noon, everybody looks a bit... bulbous...

Note that this scarf is long unavailable, but the design (called L'Hiver - Winter) often turns up second-hand. It's a total imitation of a Bruegel painting... It probably wasn't the most "blendy" colored scarf I could have worn, but I felt that the winter theme was appropriate for my adventures outdoors!
