I Don't Mess Around






Yesterday it was -30 degrees outside and I saw a woman in the parking lot at the grocery store wearing a short skirt with bare legs, heels and a light jacket walking like a newborn horse on the ice. This was Safeway on a Monday afternoon, it wasn't like she was going clubbing with her girlfriends. She must have been SO COLD! Unless she didn't shave her legs for six months prior and had a good layer of insulation to keep her warm but I didn't see any fuzz. I saw goosebumps. I, on the other hand, don't mess around when it comes to dressing appropriately for the weather because I cannot STAND being cold. (Ask my fiance, we constantly argue over the temperature on our thermostat at home.) The warmest jacket I own is the one above, from Esprit, that I bought at least four years ago. It's down-filled which is Canadian for SUPER WARM. And I enjoy being warm ; ).

jacket - Esprit, sweater - ? (old), jeans - Joe's, booties - Aldo, beanie - Zara

Wow, what an insane woman ! H aha. You look nice and warm though. I need to get myself a crazy warm coat for our cold days, though they aren't as cold as yours

She was wearing SHORTS?! I am in shock, and I'm sure her body was too. That's ridiculous, it's way too cold for that
This is a great coat for the epic cold we've been experiencing

No, she was wearing a short skirt! Pretty much the same thing as shorts though ; )

When it's ridiculously cold you are wearing the right thing. You look so pretty, the puffed coat here looks stylish too! x/Madison:)

I am constantly appalled by the clothing choices of people I come across in the Winter. I just translate it to stupidity - it's actually dangerous to be that underdressed when it's so cold. It drives me nuts! I'm all about dressing warm and being comfortable. In fact, I think I have that exact jacket!

I saw that girl or her friend! behind Whyte ave with her groceries, short skirt thin green jacket with open zipper! I just stared perhaps that's what she was looking for.

I have also not been messing around the part week with my winter dressing but you look super stylish whereas I looked like a semi-deranged hobo with mismatched mitts and a really overly bulky coat. Not to mention wrapping my head in a scarf because it was warmer than my toque.
