Foggy glasses? That feeling when your toes thaw? Washing your car and then having the doors freeze shut? The endless streak of indoor recesses that drive the kids batty and the teachers even battier? When it's only -30 out and it feels nice because the day before was -45? When your weather app starts putting images of igloos for your city on the extreme cold warning days? That cozy feeling when you finally warm up next to the fire, or with a hot chocolate or likely because of a healthy dose of Baileys?
Yup, that is winter for us in the prairies and you either need to move or learn to embrace it. Me, I'm all about the embracing. When we can celebrate New Year's Eve outside while tobogganing and having a bonfire all the while enjoying the Northern Lights, you quickly learn to appreciate the beauty that comes with living in the great white north. So for you today I have A Canadian Girl's Guide to Keeping Warm.
I figured for today's post, in the midst of a cold snap (averaging -30, or so it seems) it would be fun to show you what a Canadian girl typically wears to keep warm....because although it is that cold out, we still do things: like cross country ski, go to movies, daydream about hot vacations, take our kids out to their sporting events and get together with our friends.
What I like to wear: tuques, leggings, big sweaters and tall socks or leg warmers.
Handmade tuque by my friend, Carmen. I love tuques.
Lululemon Sweat and Savasana Sweater , Wunder Under Crop Pants and knee high woolies
What my friends wear: layers, tuques and cozy sweaters.
Sara is wearing a blardigan and Candace has on a sywash- which, didn't we all have a version of this sweater growing up?
Alison is cozy in a sweater and tuque.
While we do live in a winter wonderful that can be cold at times, life doesn't stop and what we've learned very quickly is that winter can be fun if you're dressing in comfortable layers which are guaranteed to keep you warm.
