Bearing The Bitter Blast

If there's one word I hate during Chicago winters it's Chiberia... so I will refrain from using that term as I prepare to tell you what it's like here right now.

Unfortunately, I work in a career where there's no such thing as a snow day. My boyfriend (who works in a school) has spent the last few days cooped up indoors avoiding the nastiness that is currently outside, but I on the other hand have to trek my butt to work anyways.

There should be no such thing as -40 degrees but that's the reality of Chicago right now. While I'm happy for the first real snow of the year, it's quickly become bitter sweet (no pun intended).

So while I wear leggings under my pants, three pairs of socks, and layers upon layers upon layers looking like the Pillsbury Dough Boy on my way to work, I've started to rethink the glee I felt during that first snowfall.

You'll have to forgive me if you see a few extra folds in this outfit post, I may be exploding with layers.

  1. Chicago has been freezing! But you make dressing for winter look so cute


  2. Great photos! Really chic and warm outfit :)

  3. You do NOT look like the Pillsbury Doughboy! I don't know if we've ever established this, but I too, am a Chicago native. I managed to move to Germany just in time to miss out on Chiberia last year, but I keep seeing all over Facebook that schools were shut down all over the place last week because of the cold. Trust me, you look wonderfully chic AND cozy in this outfit! When it gets cold, I always end up rocking my knee-length North Face puffer jacket. It's the ugliest thing in my closet, but boy is it warm!

    1. I think we did establish this... Germany sounds much nicer! I'm quite jealous :)
