This past weekend we had a blizzard. We've only had one snow prior to this one, and it was just barely a ground covering. So regardless of the great forecasting by my favorite weather people, I was unprepared in the outdoor clothing area. Luckily on Saturday, with the high winds and drifting snows, we stayed inside in PJs and cozy lounge-wear. But on Sunday, we had to get out for the Big Dig.
Leggings - White House/Black Market | Sweatshirt - Free People | Boot Socks - Target | Boots - Eddie Bauer (old)
The basics for a big snow, must include a pair of tall boots. I wore my quilted Eddie Bower ones on Saturday, and while they are very warm, they were a little short for our two feet of snow. On Monday, I switched over to my favorite Hunter Wellies with a pair of boot socks. That's the perfect combination of warmth and dryness.
For me, since I wasn't going sledding or rolling around, I just needed to be warm, not protected. As always, I prefer to go in layers, and started with a tank and leggings. I skipped a jacket and went for my favorite new sweatshirt. Yes, it's a sweatshirt. The top part around the neck is knitted like a soft snuggly sweater. I found it at Lord and Taylor around Christmas for a STEAL (it also came in cranberry and I'm sad I didn't get both!)
Gloves completed my outfit. and I was ready for shoveling. I have small hands, and struggle with gloves that fit. I used an old pair of fleece gloves from Lands End that I've had for years. Their outdoor clothing is great, and I have always relied on them for hats, gloves, snowpants and jackets for the kids, and outdoor staples for myself and my husband as well.
Is it snowy where you live? What are you wearing?
