In like a lion...

Six inches of snow in Greenville - I've never seen such! What a winter wonderland! (Coupled with crazy drivers, closed businesses and gray, slushy streets. But let's focus on the positive, shall we?)

Style isn't exactly a priority on snow days, but I hope I was able to stay (relatively) cute while avoiding hypothermia. It took some effort, but I enjoyed wrapping myself up in bright colors on such a dreary day.

Around my neck:

I wear scarves most days anyway - didn't I tell you it's the year of the scarf? Inside or out, these babies keep me toasty warm despite my year-round tendency to sport goosebumps and chattering teeth. I'm such a trendsetter...

On my back:

My vest is a bit more orange than this, so Bradley likes to ask if I'm a) going for a swim and need a lifejacket or b) I plan to eat lunch with the rest of the chain gang.
Bright, puffy and warm = a winner to me, though!

In my ears:

(These didn't keep me warm, per se - I just felt they had to be included in the mix!)

On my arm:
A fun Christmas gift, this bag is waterproof and plenty big enough to hold my giant clutch wallet, ridiculous number of lip glosses and even the "cute indoor shoes" I packed and never wore!

On my feet:

I read once that patterned wellies "infantilize" one's feet, but I disagree. My navy pair with cute hound dogs on them are barely noticeable with jeans on - I think one sly dog slips out at the toes. The only boots I have with a good grip, these got me to lunch and back with nary a slip 'n slide!

At my rescue:
Bradley and his noble truck/steed, driving me into the office. And picking up a friend on the way. Steep driveways covered in ice are nothing to fool around with, to be sure. I could get used to this truck and driver mode of transportation!

Hope y'all are safe and warm today!! Stay bundled up - unless you're sweet Kristen, who loves to tout her year-round springtime weather. Such are the benefits of living in Florida, I suppose. While I can handle snow once a year, I'm very much looking forward to the end of March. It's going to go out like a lamb, I just know it. Hurry, spring!

I totally agree on your "Hurry, spring!" It did not snow here in the Lowcountry, but it is way too cold for my taste! Stay warm -- and we'll be back in the 70's by Friday!!

I got to work from home yesterday and Devin didn't have to go in! We had a real snow day and it was such fun.

I couldn't put together a cuter winter outfit if I tried. :)
