Hello Autostraddlers! How’s your week going? I hope you are feeling warm, fed and loved.
Winter is coming. Winter might have already come. Maybe a little, maybe a lot depending on where you are at (I see you Midwest). I have a hard time with the cold. and become fairly insufferable once the balmy west coast dips below 10 degrees. I know, I know, it’s not actually cold. But as far as temperate rain forests go, it’s practically glacial around here. My typical sartorial antidote is GIANT ASS SCARVES. Every winter I try to find the widest, longest, thickest knits and wrap myself up in an almost mummy-state so that I can keep from crying.
Maybe I’m a touch over-dramatic, but being all wrapped up will make the next four months bearable.
All this talk of scarves has me wondering… How the heck do you dress to stay warm? Are you more of a “layers are best, even if they render me immobile,” or “I’ll just wear thin layers of heat retaining garments that are practical and futuristic?” Somewhere between the two? I tend to get a little frivolous with my winter clothes and somehow I end up in a thick knit sweater, faux fur collar with a giant coat and fuzzy earmuffs. I want to know what you are gonna wear/thinking of wearing/into wearing, ‘cause we’re about to get chilly.
