Has it gotten colder?

I'm not certain this year has been colder than any other, especially since every year there is at least one day when I'm standing out there in the cold thinking, "What the hell am I doing?"

These day always sticks out clearly in my memory, so I can tell you that last year it was March 3rd, and before that, November 23rd, and in 2012, January 20th.

The only real solution to this problem is to stop pretending it isn't cold, which is why you can't see my pretty turquoise and crystal necklace from TJMaxx. It was my intention to take the scarf off, but it was so cozy, I decided not to. I'll get it next time.

  5. Stupid cold! But at least we get to wear all our awesome coats! :D Silver lining, haha

  6. Considering that you're consistently freezing while taking outfit photos, I have to say that you rarely seem to show it. And, more importantly, that you do layering really well. I'm sure I've said it before but I really only have one serious cold weather outfit and if I dealt with the winter temperatures you do, well, I would need to work in a photo studio - there would be no other solution. So try not to be too discouraged - you're still way ahead of most of us ;)

  7. You may be cold but you look great! Seriously, I can't get enough of that jacket....

  8. Im with you. Sometimes there are those days it feels impossible to take off my pink coat and I'm guilty to taking maybe way too many photos with it. yes, I'm repeat offender. We're real girls and it much more fun to see real then too much staged. You look fabulous in your coat and all black.


  9. This outfit looks so rich and luxurious! Absolutely gorgeous. I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to take of your scarf! I kind of have the same take on summers here...stop pretending like it isn't 110 degrees and just go with it!

  33. Another powerful look - you know i had no idea what it was to wear metal jewellery on the skin in the winter until I wore it. I wanted to dieeee when the chain touched my neck. Its those little things that you're not aware of until it happens to you that I admire so much about your pictures in the cold.
