Wears: Winter Walks

I think we can safely say that winter is officially here. We have yet to have any snow stick around but there is a nice view of it in the mountains. And there just may be some in the forecast for early next week; I'm crossing my fingers that it sticks this time. I'm also sticking with tradition and wishing for snow on my birthday again, I've only done so every year for as long as I can remember. This girl knows what she likes.

Despite the persistent chill, I've been making an effort to still get out of the house once a week for a nice walk. That means lots of layers and cozy outfit additions. I was silly yesterday afternoon though, when we went for this walk down in the park, and completely forgot a pair of clothes. Brrr guys. At least I had my thermos mug of chai to help out a bit. I had made a mental note that when we were taking pictures that I would take of my coat for a few of them so that you'd be able to see the rest of my outfit fully. I may have forgot. Or it may have just been too damn cold. Sorry guys. I guess you'll just have to expect a coat over all my outfits for the next few months. Just zoom in real close? Also isn't Will really good at getting slightly awkward candid shots of me? I like it.

I hope you are enjoying the season, even if it is butt-cold where you are too. I'm getting so excited for all the festive things that happen around Boise this time of year. You know, all the events I always say we should go to and then we never follow through. But I am determined this year, I've added them all to my calendar for motivation. Thanksgiving tomorrow (!) and then the tree lighting downtown on Friday. I also want to go ice skating at the new outside rink at The Village and walk around Winter Garden aGlow at least once.

I'll be back on Friday to share a tutorial for the ear warmers I'm wearing!

  1. I know the feeling of too cold for taking off your coat! Still, very cute outerwear and accessories.

  2. That is such a cute headband! Do you have a post about this DIY project?

  3. I can't believe you don't have any mittens on. and is only getting out of the house once a week normal for how cold it is there? I cycle to work every morning still in the winter, although of course we don't get snow and it might be around 40F (and I die.. I wear snow gloves haha). but anyway, i like how you can see just a peek of the dress, love that coat color, and extra love your little DIY headwarmer!

  4. I obviously get out of the house more often than that to go to various places and just everyday things. But yes, as far as driving downtown just to go for a walk in the cold, or venturing out long enough to do a photo shoot, it takes quite a bit of strength to stay out longer when the air has that much bite. But even now I'm leaving to go to the Tree Lighting ceremony in town; sometimes it's worth it!
