The spell of cold weather we are having has reminded me of some pictures I took way back before Spring came along. I took the pictures to demonstrate that it is possible to remain stylish while having to be bundled up when walking dogs!
You have to start with a base layer, long underwear and warm socks. This layer is certainly not the prettiest, but it is vital for keeping warm.
Next comes a sweater and pants. There must be a cute, yet warm, outfit involved. You know, in case you end up needing to take your outer layer off.
Then, the outer layer! I have two variations. One for when it is so cold, I don’t really want to go outside. Then, one for sunnier, yet cold, days.
This wool peacoat has been a life saver! I have never wished that I had a warmer jacket this winter! Sure, I’ve had cold feet, but not a cold bottom. Even though this hat does have little holes in it, it is actually pretty warm. Plus, it is nice to have a neutral colored hat. The scarf has a really cool ribbed/ruffled texture, and gives the outfit a bit of a color pop! Finally, the gloves I am wearing. I know I failed to reveal them for the picture, but they are fleece and oh so warm!
I really love this coat because of its hood. It is so furry, and creates a bubble around my head when the wind is really blowing! Also, it is nice that it can be cinched at the waist creating more of a shape. I am obsessed with these purple fingerless gloves! Not only do they match my scarf and hat, but they are great for picking up poo.
While these are great outfits, I can’t wait for it to be warm again. Honestly, my body is not made for the cold, even though I have lived in Colorado my entire life.
What do you think, I am I keeping it stylish?
