I know I don't need to tell yall that this winter has been crazy! In Houston, we had one of the first winter snowfalls in the country (still hard to believe) and while in Oklahoma, we had 7 inches on Christmas eve.
This winter, I finally learned what most of you already know - snow is fun for about 20 minutes. Then, not so much.
The harshness of this winter has proved two things to me:
1. I cannot tolerate cold weather in the slightest.
2. I have no idea how to dress for cold weather.
The shoes I chose to pack for our white Christmas in Oklahoma were so NOT appropriate for snow (think mules with no socks). So, I literally wore my grandmother's fake Uggs the whole time we were there. I was uber desperate, obviously.
The day it snowed, I played outside for maybe 15 minutes total, yet the rest of the trip I had constant chills, a fever, and no voice.
So, here's what I want to know from you cold weather climate gals: What is the protocol for cold weather attire? Is it function over fashion?
How do you keep from being miserable while being outside? Do you wear long underwear everyday? When you are wearing a beanie, do you take it off when you get inside - or leave it on? Do you wear rain/snow boots to work, and then change when you get there?
And lastly... I need these Kate Spade boots, right??
