I am still scrambling to get my summer wardrobe out of storage. Although I don't have any summer outfits to show you, I do have OOTD pics from December and January.
The winter weather was super-dooper cold. And I mean COLD!! There were Arctic blasts of cold air which resulted in sub-zero temperatures in Canada and the States. We suffered through weather that dipped to -51 Celcius with windchill. Brrrr!! After work, I would go home, take care of my dog, then crawl into bed to try to get warm. Even when I dressed warmly, it seemed like the cold weather tried to burrow it's way next to my skin.
|Check out that staticy hair!!!|
This outfit makes me feel very medievalish. I think it's the combination of the tunic, and the knee boots.
|Yowsa, lookit that hair!!|
This ensemble features a long, wool cardi. It's kinda like a blanket.

Now I understand why Linus liked his blanket so much.
Because if you can't stay in bed, you may as well take your blanket with you while you confront the cold weather.
My uniform is a cardigan, over pants and a top (sometimes over a layer of thermal underwear). This is the cozy mohair cardigan, layered over a men's flannel shirt. I wore a neon yellow, blingy necklace. Then we went bowling.

|Thrifting on the weekend|
Here are a couple of weekend OOTD - clothing that I threw on for running various errands, dog walking, shopping, etc. I remember balking at the idea of wearing another flipping winter coat in the picture above. So I layered a warm vest, over an alpaca cardigan, over a t-shirt. Worn with neon green cords. The vest and cardigan were thrifted...did I mention that the cardigan was unbelievably thick and warm?? It's about 1" thick!!

I bought a white parka last winter...with our record snowfall, I was worried about getting mistaken for a snow bank :) Thrifted United Colors of Benetton argyle cardi, neon cords, white parka.

|After adding outer layers...can you believe I was still cold??|

happy thrifting everyone :)
