The Wind In The Willows...

Worn to work Tuesday, November 29

"I am cold"...first thing I said this morning when I woke up....this is the thought I based my whole outfit and day around.  Our bedroom is an attic room above a non-insulated porch which makes it about 10 degrees cooler than the rest of the house...so I layered...with faux fur.  My favorite denim shirt and this fantastically warm sweater vest and cordory skirt...layered bracelets, shiny necklace, earrings and I was ready to go...all warm and toasty.

I was so darn windy here today in Chicago.  My office is right on the lake and the wind was so strong I could barely walk across the street.  While I was sitting in my car in the parking lot, procrastinating going into the office, I heard a loud noise and felt the car shake...I thought someone had hit my car, but it was just a really strong gust of wind...scared the crap out of me!!

Wow, that's pretty windy. I like the layering especially (of course) the fur vest. Those boots are pretty hot, too. :)

I guess it really is the windy city, isn't it?? I've been chilled all day too, and I'm pretty sure it isn't nearly as cold in Pensacola as it is Chicago! lol

I love this whole outfit with the browns and khakis and denim!

Well you look very cute and cozy--I hope you stayed warm! It's hard to get out of bed when it's so cold out!

My bathroom is right above the uninsulated garage, so I go through this same process every morning :)

I love that vest! It just looks so warm!
