We all know that with winter comes the cold. That’s a no brainer. The dilemma lies in how to stay warm! Every winter season, I find myself piling on the layers for the sake of staying as warm as possible, but hopefully without looking like Ralphie’s little brother in A Christmas Story. Have no fear! It IS possible to wear enough layers to stay warm and still be able to put your arms down at your side. :p
What are the layers?
First, of course is a tank top-I’m convinced they add some sort of insulation. Next, a long sleeve wool pullover from J.Crew (that used to be light pink, but I dyed navy blue with RIT dye). This plaid jacket was one that my mom made in college. It’s 100% wool, so it’s pretty warm, plus it’s got a cool orange lining. ;) And I layered this reversible vest over it for extra warmth. Finally, gloves, a scarf and a hat…because we all must remember what Mom tells us-keeping your head warm always keeps you warmer. ;)
Be sure to stay warm the next few days-even if you don’t leave the house- I plan on staying indoors and eating and drinking lots of hot drinks and soup until this second ‘polar plunge’ passes. ;)
