Here I am again, slacking on the blog. We are rolling into Christmas break now and it actually looks like it will be unusually warm for us with temps above zero! Considering it is normally about -50F at Christmas and we are going into the deep cold of winter now, this is very uplifting. Hopefully that will hold as ski club starts up - we start in January rather than November because it is dark by 3pm which would mean skiing with headlamps and with 40 kids in the club, that gets exciting!
Speaking of the light, we just had the Winter Solstice and with a total of 3 hours and 41 minutes of daylight yesterday, we'll starting gaining back daylight! With overcast days it often seems like we don't move past "twilight" so it makes a huge difference. As you can see from the photos, it has been very dark, I took most of these about 1pm. All black outfits might not be the best choice in those cases!
I really liked this but I think it would work better with my cropped leather jacket but the cold threw me for a bit of a loop. I'm excited to try it again in warmer weather, this time with a hat. I feel so naked in my outfits that don't have hats!
Layering is serious and I am a dork so we end up with looks like this, which I love. Moon Boots for the win, always.
This is one of my very favorite outfits of all time. I like layering my big cardigans over my coats, it's extra warm and I love the volume.
I was so tired this day and it shows. I'm going to try this top again, maybe with taller boots and my Rick Owens hooded coat but it was a little chilly and I like styling my puffer coats and showing that my outfits are in fact wearable.
Much better styling on this skirt this time around, I think I goofed the proportions last time and made myself look exactly as short as I am!
This Isabel Marant coat is just pure joy. I have to wait until it gets cold to wear it because it is so heavy and warm. I love the pattern and it just makes me happy to wear it.
Ponchos over coats, one of my favorite styling methods!
A cape and moon boots? Yes please.
Ignore my hair, the cold makes it so awful. Ugh, the static! Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year, may you all go into with brightness, joy and strength!
