The weather has been SO cold this past week, that even walking outside for 5 minutes is unbearable. On Sunday though, the weather was half decent being a total high of -3 degrees Celsius (wow so warm, am I right?)
I decided to wear my black parka that day but tried to make it look less of a full on puffy black parka. I took off the fur that lines my hood and then decided to take of the entire hood off in general. Making it look less generic compared to all the other black fur hooded parkas in the city. Instead of zipping the coat up I left it undone and layered a blanket scarf and a sweater (unfortunately you cannot see it well in the picture) underneath.
I find that carrying around a little black beanie in your purse/bag is very useful for those days when it starts snowing or gets colder. And a black beanie can go with literally anything and helps you look stylish and warm at the same time!
More warm weather tips:
- I recently got a pair of black leather gloves that actually have this material in it where it allows you to used touch screen devices i.e. your iphone/smart phone. It makes the world of difference when you are outside in the frigid cold and either get a text message or call without having to take your gloves off!
- Blanket scarves are my favorite scarves to wear because there are endless ways to wear them as well, as they are extremely warm and act as a blanket thus, giving it the name blanket scarf.
- If you are needing to wear heels in these frigid months for work, a party, girls night out fear no more! By pairing a pair of heels with a set of cute socks your feet will thank you and you will also look on trend! Yes, you can wear panty hose if you really want to but by pairing your heels with socks it makes your outfit more chic in my opinion.
Here are heels that actually come WITH socks attached.
Curious as to what I bought in that little brown bag from American Apparel? Check it out here. (Look out for my next posts wearing it!)
