Staying Warm

15 Feb

Altar'd State Sheepskin Coat

Today’s outfit couldn’t come at a more appropriate time. We got blasted with a snowstorm yesterday, and maybe I’m alone here, but I had no idea it was coming. Snow usually doesn’t freak me out too much, but driving in it totally changes all those nonchalant feelings. I drive a Jeep, which is my saving grace in times of winter storms.

However, as reliable as Libby the Liberty (yes my car has a name) can be, it’s pretty much useless when your windshield wipers are out of commission. I had to learn that the hard way yesterday when I drove through the thick of it. My wipers were all out of whack, and the more I sped them up the more blurry they made the view. The drive from my parents to my place is usually about 10 minutes, but it took me well over 30. I had to pull over eight different times to wipe off my windshield, and then ultimately resorted to driving with my window down and scraping while I drove. It was dangerous and terrifying all at once, and I am now booking an appointment to get new wipers today.

Sheepskin Winter Coat

Did I mention I’m ready for spring?!

Now, back to the outfit. This is about as comfortably chic as it gets for me. When I’m having a bad hair day, or know it’s going to be a windy one, I instantly grab this embellished beanie. It tames my mane, and sparkles at the same time.

I can’t take credit for this coat because it’s my moms, but it’s probably the warmest thing I’ve ever put on my body. The sheepskin texture keeps you warm even on the coldest of days, and that gets my seal of approval.

    I think you need to steal that coat from your mom…just sayin’ 😉 It’s amazing and a necessity for this weather. No storms here but it’s been FRIGID out so there’s that. I hate driving in bad weather – scares me so much. You have to drive defensively the entire time. There are so many crazy drivers who drive way too fast IMO. Glad you got home safe, though!

    That hat is so fun! You definitely need to get creative with how to be stylish and warm during the winter, and you’re killing it at both!
