Step and Repeat...

It is not quite "officially" winter here yet in Chicago, but mother nature is sure doing a good job pretending.  -8 with the windchill today...I knew it was going to be a multiple layer day when my car clock said 2 degrees when I went to warm it up for carpool at 8am...






Sweater, scarf, denim shirt-Old Navy/Leggings-Vince Camuto/Jewelry-Old Navy, Top Shop, /Boots Kenneth Cole

Many layers is really the only way to brave the blistering cold...

My favorite leggings again... I just realized, since I bought these leggings, I have not worn jeans... I spend my days in either comfy, baggy scrubs, these amazing leggings or flannel pajama pants (only at night, never out of the house)  I think it is a combo of laziness and ease of just throwing them on in the morning, comfort since I am used to wearing very forgiving and comfy scrubs most of the week and not wanted to see if my jeans are tight since I have not adjusted my gym schedule to my work schedule quite yet...  After the leggings come a tank top and long t-shirt, a denim shirt of some sort (I was feeling all the pattern mixing today), a big cozy sweater (this aztec print one from Old Navy is all sorts of perfect) and a long scarf (again Old Navy hitting a home run with this one).  These wellies anchor my braving the cold look perfectly.  I purchased these about 6 years ago.  They were part of a Kenneth Cole Put A Rubber On It Collection...besides loving what it symbolized and that the profits went to AIDS, they have a fun texture, making them a bit more exciting than the traditional wellies. 
I pretty much have been and will be wearing a variation of this outfit, on my days away from the hospital, all winter long...

Alex was so excited that I decided to take photos outside...he has been dying to shovel and play in the snow...

Stay warm my friends...
