Cold, Colder, Coldest

Snow! Over the past week my world has become a winter wonderland! People
have begun to put up their Christmas lights, making walking the streets a visual
extravaganza. And now that's there's plenty of snow on the ground my holiday
decor doesn't feel so out of place. The several feet of snow we received has
definitely changed the look of fashion too. Good bye, fancy shoes and hello, 
functional boots! The snow's here for a while, so make yourself comfortable.
And who was it that said skirts can't be worn in the winter? Clearly that person
has never been introduced to a wool skirt before. Yes, here she goes again with
that whole wool thing! I just love it! Do think the job of wool spokes(wo)man
exists?!  If so, I'm applying....  I have such a hatred of being cold and when
you have a hatred for pants that rivals that of being cold, well, that would be quite
the conundrum for a winter novice. I don't know about you, but when it's -20
or colder outside and I don't dress properly it literally feels as if my insides are
contracting. It's not nice. That's when I started to think about not just layering, but
the fabrics in which I was using for layering. This skirt is a million times warmer
than a pair of jeans. Hands down. So, you'll be seeing this skirt around, that's for
sure (that being said, I hope you like it as much as I do)! I was uber excited to
discover this sweater, it's burnt orange-ish colour suits this skirt perfectly!

  7. Lol, I also feel like my insides are contracting when I'm not dressed for the cold. You look nice and cozy though. That skirt is adorable. I would totally wear wool all the time if I lived in the cold.

  8. I adore the hat! I have a similar one but I'm not quite sure how to wear it yet - I really wish I could see snow =) Ooh, your pet dog is super adorable!!!

  9. Winter is here to stay for awhile for where I live too! So might as well make the most of it! Love this cold weather look! Your plaid skirt is just perfect!


  10. It sure looks freezing cold there but the snow does mke for pretty pictures. Wonderful look.

  11. Oh man, this outfit looks so warm, though! *___* I'm also definitely a skirt over pants person and so I'm glad that you're still able to wear a skirt when it's freezing and snowing out! The print on yours is so so cute. And how adorable is your hat?

    Of course, it's 66 degrees where I am today, so I guess I don't have to worry about winter yet... buwahaha! But soon. SOON!!!

    Have a beautiful hump day, m'dear!~

  12. Gaaah, jealous of your snow!! We haven't had a real winter here in ages (always hoping though)! I love this look. Gorgeous skirt and sweater! I also love how the scarf gives the illusion of a big collared sweater. Keep warm!! <3

  14. I love wool fabrics as well. Like you I live in a cold, snowy climate and wool is a must in the winter! This wool skirt of your is absolutely perfect and looks adorable with your floppy hat! And yes, I am already getting sick of wearing practical boots for days on end. I want to wear a pair of my heels again!
