I admit – I deliberately stockpiled outfit photos this past spring and summer, because I knew that winter photoshoots in Winnipeg would be hard. Despite the fact that I grew up in Winnipeg, though, and despite the fact that I learned to drive at the coldest, snowiest time of year, the reality of winter did not set in until winter actually arrived. And while it’s fun to share winter-like outfits from warmer days, it also makes me lament the fact that I can’t wear most of my favourite clothes right now. So in an effort to resign myself to reality, I will be sharing more outfits that reflect that I’m really wearing this winter – starting now.
I don’t have a practical bone in my body, at least when it comes to getting dressed. We all know that. So yes, I have been wearing heels this winter. It means that sometimes I have to tiptoe across patches of ice in my path, but I am willing to suffer that much to wear shoes I feel great in. (Some days, anyway. Some days, I reach for my flat, fur-lined boots.) And yes, I do still go without gloves sometimes. I shouldn’t. But it’s not intentional. I’m just having trouble getting into the habit of remembering I need them. And when I don’t, I suffer for it.
My current uniform consists of a sweater, jeans and boots. If I’m going outside, I had a wool coat, a hat, often a scarf and gloves. And usually, I’m still cold. So, in the interest of full disclosure, I admit; this look is the intersection between how much I’m willing to suffer for fashion and how poorly equipped I am to deal with winter cold. It is the reality of my everyday style at the moment and, while it isn’t what I want to wear every. single. day., I think I’m doing okay.
Happy Friday, my friends!
