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…
My scarf is similar to this, but one side is cashmere and the other is silk. I spent a FORTUNE on it about 15 years ago and almost had a heart attack at the time. But now, I don’t remember what that price actually was… (there’s a lesson somewhere in there!)
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!
Another great selection. I would love you to do a post on how you tie the scarves. Keep warm. Margo
I am amazed how often you do venture out in this weather! At least our temperatures are a bit above freezing around lunchtime here in north central AR. Almost springlike, eh? At least you look very stylish. Your diary is a lot of fun!
Another great weekly wardrobe report! Keep them coming. This is so helpful and so realistic.
Janice, I sure hope that's a heated pool you're sitting around! Stay warm and stylish!
Laughing at the comment about the boots. In early November I purchased a great pair of snow boots similar to your Bogs, never imagining that I would wear them every single day from early January through February. Every. Single. Day.

Your wardrobe is so simple yet so stylish for everyday life (in my case retired). I find the Eileen Fisher slouch pants indispensable. Stay warm!
I tried on the Eileen Fisher pants after seeing them here and on another blog. I did not think I would like them on me, but I do. They are so comfortable but not very warm. I imagine you are wearing tights under them in your climate. I lived in Montreal and Toronto in the 70's and remember wearing boots every day from December until April. It was a very special moment when you could wear shoes again outside.

I love these posts – so helpful in deciding what to keep and what to give up. I also have the L'Hiver scarf in red and just love it!
At least you don't have ten feet of snow! I talked toa friend in Boston whose kids are skiing off their roof!
I'm thinking of splurging on the seascape scarf you profiled last week. Could you whip up a couple of outfits to
Wear it with? Work and play? Your ideas are so creative and you combine clothes in ways I would never dream up! Thank you!

Enjoyed seeing your weekly round up of outfits…so honest and appropriate.
My BFF has Bogs and loves hers. Keeping the weather in mind when dressing just makes sense…bulbous is a great word!
Love your combinations, though for me I would prefer a little more color.
Oh, forgot to add: I spent the Labor Day weekend in Chicago and loved it so muchit felt "mediterranian" to me German. The beach was crowded and the Jazz Festival was on until late at night and I enjoyed every second there. Can't imagine the cold though I did experience the wind. Warm wind!
