It’s officially freezing cold here, and it does get really cold up here in the “frozen north” (which is what I’m endearingly calling my country home west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada).
We had a huge dump of snow again this week, and it’s time to layer clothing and wear big boots. It’s time to pull out all of the comfy, flannely, heavy things I can find and put them on.
I’ve always had a love for plaid prints, and this year I’m seeing plaid trending in a big way. Plaid reminds me of winter and Christmas and coziness. I had a bought of strep throat last week and then my family had a bad cold this week, so nothing seems more joyous to me today than wrapping myself up in layers of sweaters and scarfs and soft plaids and sipping some coffee (coffee!!!) after playing outside with my girlie (for only as long as we can bear)!
Today I wore something that I thought I never would – a plaid jacket with a plaid scarf… and they did not match! It freaked me out a little, but I’m really digging the mismatched look lately, and there are golds and browns in this DIY infinity scarf that coordinate with this gorgeous jacket from Ruche. It’s a fun, country cozy look that I thought was cute! The sash on the jacket cinches my petite & curvy self at the right spot, and I’m wearing my favourite boots (which are buried in the snow).
Underneath this jacket is one of my current favourite sweaters. It’s just so easy to wear, hides my mom-tum and it’s really warm:
It’s a cute poncho cape from ModCloth and I think I snagged the last one, but you can Shop ModCloth here for similar styles! They have adorable sweaters and coats this season.
Here’s hoping that the rest of our December is sickness-free and that we can enjoy Christmas without constant nose-wiping and coughing attacks.
