Honestly, the snow isn't so bad. It's just that, well, it's mid-November, and I'm not really ready for it to be 10 degrees every morning. It feels more like January right now. I'm all about the layering, wearing thick tights and cupping warm drinks, but not so much wearing winter coats, hiding my face in my scarf every time a cold breeze goes by, and slipping on ice while walking on the sidewalk.
Luckily, I've been inspired to mix it up lately, outfit-wise, and didn't want to dress in a completely dreary way. I've been in a bit of an outfit slump lately, usually doing my go-to riding boots plus blouse and cardigan for work, but that was getting old. I always feel so inspired by the people around me, with life, goals, fashion sense, etc. (with the people I meet while reporting and in the blogosphere) that it's almost overwhelming. I've been calling it a creativity hangover.
But instead of getting overwhelmed and shutting down like I usually do in stressful situations, I decided to experiment.
I've mostly worn this skirt in the summer, but it's thick enough to be part of a winter ensemble, too, which I totally love.
Here I am sans jacket and hat, pretending to look happy while standing in the season's first snow:
And because I FINALLY have enough outfit photos on my blog for some repeat wears here, I thought I'd show how I've worn the moto jacket and maps skirt earlier this year:
RIP, Fall foliage and summer greenery. :( Until next year, anyway.
How are you all doing with the weather, in terms of dressing for your climate?
