I normally have a hard time winterizing this dress but I really liked it with the big shearling coat and the gray wool sweater. I would have thought all the black would have been too heavy visually for the florals but the gray sweater seemed to help balance that out a little.

This was a school field trip day outfit, my eldest's class went to the Alaska Room at one of the local schools. It's a classroom where our elders from a few different Alaskan Indigenous tribes teach the children about their cultures and pass on skills. The ladies whom teach at this classroom are all so kind and we are very fortunate to be able to hear them pass on their stories and knowledge and that they are so gracious in donating their time to such an important project.

Hey, a hundred percent second hand outfit, not bad! At this point however I think most of my closet is second hand either through ebay, thrift or consignment stores. A few things I buy new in stores but for the most part second hand prices have really spoiled me for paying retail.
Ignore my dopey faces, it was cold and my eyes were watering like crazy. We're down to just a few hours of daylight right now and it will be scarcer as we get closer to Winter Solstice ad end up with about two hours of twilight on the Solstice. After that the days will start to get longer again but it's a long time before warmer temps head back around. We haven't even hit the rough stuff yet, ugh!

There's some crazy proportions going on here with the midi skirt, the long coat and cardigan, the high waist of the skirt and the tall shaft of the boots - none of this is suppose to work for petites but I really like how it all came together. It's a little awkward but in good way.
The title obviously doesn't refer to the snowfall, it was dumping the day, in the five mins that I took pictures it had built upon my hat brim. Weve gotten about two feet of snow so far and it's all dry fluff - no good for snowballs nor snowmen!

Well, this is a throw back to the twee of 2010 but I sort of dig it. I don't think these boots are suppose to be slouchy but they don't really stay up now and since slouchy boots are suppose to be the "in" boot of he season, I'll just roll with it and pretend it's intentional.
