Enough is enough already! Really! I don't know how much longer I can stand living in an upright Freezer. Come on! I am sick and tired of this horribly cold weather as I am sure you are tired of me complaining about how cold it is. I will certainly try to keep my complaining about the weather to a low roar, okay?
But really, I can so understand why people who live in Antartica, the Artic or Nunavat for that matter, (I love saying that word. Nunavat - it's pronounced like none of it - but all together, so that it sounds like none0fit) don't dress to impress. What is there to impress when it's freaking cold everywhere? What I hate more than the cold is having to recycle my wardrobe so quickly. As you may remember, I've been complaining that I am running out of warm clothing to wear. And it's true. It was barely a week ago that I wore my Cashmere Femme sweater and here I am once again, wearing my Cashmere Femme Sweater. URGH!
Don't get me wrong. I love my Cashmere Femme Sweater. I just don't need it to become a Friday staple, kwim? I much prefer to wear something, say once every 2 -3 weeks at most. I hate it when my outfits become predictable.
Yes, I used to be predictable. When I was much heavier, like 50 lbs heavier, I had a 5 day a week wardrobe. Mondays - Black, Tuesdays - Navy, Wednesday - Black (yes again, but hey, I didn't wear it on Tuesday), Thursday - Brown and Friday - Black (yes, once again but I broke up the monotony by wearing Brown on Thursday, remember?). Occasionally, I would forget that I was supposed to wear Black on Mondays and ended up wearing a different color (ie Brown or Navy) which really screwed me up for the week. So, yes, I used to be completely predictable and totally boring... until I found J Crew, that is.
No, I'm not kidding. J Crew introduced me into the world of color. In the past, adding color to my wardrobe was to add Navy, Browns and if I were super adverturous, I would add Beige. Imagine that! Beige. Not Bisque or Champagne. Beige. Sad really. But I digress.
Anyway, back to what I'm wearing today. It was Minus 13 when I left the house this morning. It was so cold that I didn't even have to scrap my car windows... there's no dew in this weather so there was no chance for dew to form and turn to ice on my windshield. So to keep warm outside as well as in the office, I threw on a Perfect Fit Long Sleeve Crewneck Tee plus lined wool black dress pants from Tristan America. Then the Cashmere Femme Sweater in Heather Plum and over that, a biker-style zippered fitted vest. My jewlery consists of a triple strand gold and pearl necklace plus my ever trusty Double Crystal Enamel Bangle from J Crew. And over all of these, I wore a Black Puffer Jacket. Having had 4 layers on, I was nice and toasty warm everywhere north of my hip and south of my chin. But everything outside my torso was freaking cold. Why does my outfit today look so much like what I wore yesterday? URGH!
My husband loves this weather. He says, "What's not to like, it's dry and sunny outside". Yes, but it's also so cold that if I licked a flag pole, I would risk the chance of getting stuck to it. Not that I would lick a flag pole but you know what I mean, right?
