Fact #1: I live in a cold climate.
Fact #2: It’s difficult to look elegant when it’s snowy freezing outside.
Given these things, I have struggled for the past couple of years that I’ve been here to work out a cold weather style solution for my everyday activities. Work, for example, is tough because I do outside sales. So I have to be ready to move and go see customers all day, but also look good when I’m in having an indoor meeting. I think I’ve finally found a workable solution though, and here it is:
***Ignore the kitchen renos, please! We’re almost done
I start with a solid coloured shift dress, add a colourful belt, tights and a cardigan. I can wear boots (stilletto is fine, I’m not traipsing through fields or anything), a nice necklace (this black bead necklace is from the antique mall), and my soft black and grey leopard coat. It’s quilted inside and the warmest thing I own. Cute, too! I will also be wearing leather gloves today and can add a black pashmina as needed. Voila! Warm and toasty, cute and stylish. Bring on the -20!
(not really though. If you’re reading this, Edmonton weather, save the -20 for after I’ve moved.)
