Another Week-ish Of Winter
That aside, here's another week-ish worth of outfits. Our weather was a little all over the place with -20F to 30F and wow, does that fifty degree range mean that 30f feels tropical. On this day it was right about 15 which is warm enough I don't normally wear mittens with my looks. Any colder and my hands freeze. This is a Max Mara 100% wool coat I found at the thrift shop which hold the freaking phone is awesome. It is a maxi length, a big swing shape with loose arms and a high neck and it feels like a wizards coat. I love it so much. Because of the warm temps I did not wear my usual thermals underneath and just rolled with smart wool tights, a bodysuits and my trusty Banana Republic cashmere cardigan as layers with my dress. With the heavy coat on top and the scarf, it was a bit over kill for our warm weather but I really wanted to wear to coat. The down side is while I love this dress, I almost never wear it because it is so freaking long. I am only 5'2 so that happens often but I don't care for it dragging in the snow.
Ah - I am also wearing mostly all wool in this look, the dress is a merino wool, the jacket is boiled wool and then there's a leather jacket just hanging out somewhere in there with the thigh socks being smart wools. Merino wool is really excellent if you hate the scratchy feeling of rough wool and Costco sells amazing merino wool base layers.
