It was in the negatives this morning and honestly that’s just too cold for me. By the time I get to my office I feel like I can barely speak from my teeth chattering so severely the whole way here. Fellow Canadians, please don’t call me a wimp. I know you’re probably in -20 or worse right now and for that I commend you; it’s absolutely a severity of weather I am not conditioned to. Admittedly I am a bit of a baby when it comes to the cold, which is why right now I am daydreaming about living on a tropical island. Then again, if I lived on a tropical island I would probably be living with a constant sun burn. Maybe I should just consider buying another sweater.
The thing about me + the cold is that we mix like oil and water, meaning – not at all. As soon as winter comes around and it’s constantly chilly out, I am always battling a cold. I spend my days guzzling down hot tea, forcing myself to take drops of Oil of Oregano, getting early sleeps & having lots of soup all in the effort to fend off the cold that is attempting to overtake me. Alright, that was a bit melodramatic, but you know what I mean!
On days like today (chilly chilly burr burr but sunny) I stick to my cozy not-so-basic sweater, classic black jeans, cognac boots and a two tone hat to keep comfortably cozy against the crisp winter weather. In a recent post I talked about just how much I love essential pieces that have a touch of fun & unique detailing.
It’s no secret that during the winter we all need to find cozy pieces to keep bundled and warm; and each winter I keep the winter chill at bay with super thick knit sweaters – that have a bit of a twist. Prettily printed scarves, two tone jackets and studded bags are great ways to turn a simple essential into a statement piece, which is why I am completely obsessed with this super heavy leopard printed sweater.
