|wearing at least 6 layers. plus a scarf. and snow boots.|
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I went to Minnesota a few weeks ago during the really really cold weather that covered most of the US over/right after New Years.
And it was cold.
Bone chilling, make your nose hurt to breathe cold.
So, what does a Colorado girl who's used to snow one day, and 50 degree temps the next do?
Pack as many warm articles of clothing into her suitcase, and wear the rest on the airplane.
I've got 3 more outfits from this trip (plus pics from my cousin's wedding!) to share with you
over the next few days.
I wore my warmest pants: corduroys. And a Christmas present from my sweetie: SOREL snow boots. Get this, the name of this style is "Joan of Arctic."
Anyways, they'll keep my tootsies warm up to -25 degree temps, and they've got fur on the top.
Plus, they're black AND brown, so my black vs. brown dilemma won't be an issue.
So, I wore the boots on the plane. Plus the outfit you see above. And carried my down coat and vest in the airport. The boots are crazy warm, but after wearing them all around the frigid Twin Cites for several days in a row, my feet were a wee bit tired.
Having all that warm & fuzziness makes for heavy footwear (and tired feet & legs - guess I should start working out
My extended family got a kick out of teasing me for wearing so many layers. One uncle called me "Anne-ook of the North." Hey, when it's cold, I don't mess around. #layersplease
So, look for a few more extremely-cold weather outfits. Although I was thoroughly chilled in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, I'm glad that I got to practice my layering "technique" and look of "snow bunny chic." And of course see my cousin marry his lovely bride, and the rest of my sweet fam, too!
