Winter Chill

One thing about living in Winnipeg is we have a really wide range of temperatures going from the high 30 degrees Celsius range in the summer and then in the winter dipping down to the low -30 degree Celsius range.  Well this weekend it was definitely one of those bitter cold days as we hit -30 Celsius and the wind chill was -40 Celsius.  Crazy I know!  I sometimes think to myself "Why do I live here!" When I went out to get some groceries the wind actually hurt and I only ran from my warm car in the parking lot into the store!

 

Even with the cold weather I never let that affect my style! I make sure to always look put together but still completely warm.  There is no excuse to look bad just because the weather is freezing! Obviously I will not be going cross country skiing in this outfit but for work and going out this is perfect!  As it is so cold here in the winter I have to wear a warm coat all the time so I made sure over the years to invest in a few beautiful coats.  I usually get at least one new coat every year to add to my collection.  I bought this adorable wool coat online from Forever 21 when they were having their Black Friday sale and it was 50% off.  Can't beat that! The bold red color is wonderful to mix and match with my outfits and makes a bright statement!

 

I would love to hear about what kind of coat you invested in this year!

That red coat looks stunning on you and it's such a classic piece! I so badly want a red coat. I have been gravitating towards an overwhelming parka however for taking the dog outside. It's not quite as cold Winnipeg here in Ottawa, but cold enough!
December 11, 2013 4:35 PM By Samantha
Wow! Can you survive those temperatures? You look elegant and beautiful even in freezing weather, love the mix of colors, I never thought wearing red and purple together ... Oh, Lady .. you break all my schemes ... You are great!

Firstly, We had snow here in Washington, DC and because I'm a wimp against cold weather I refused to go outside to take pictures for my blog. I'm seriously admiring you right now for not letting the weather deter you from looking fabulous! Secondly, You seriously look fabulous - the color palette here is amazing! I think I can always count on you to have an eclectic mix of colors in your outfits that just work amazingly well. You look stunning!

I'm in Chicago where it's negative 20 degrees F and I must say that i still need to learn how to dress warm and stylish at the same time. You've definitely mastered this skill with ease! I tend to give up sometimes and just throw my coat over whatever. But I love how you still stay completely true to your style even in below freezing weather. Very admirable! And this bright ensemble is sure to chase the winter blues away! <3 katsfashionfix.blogspot.com

You wouldn't go skiing in this outfit? Why not???;) I feel for you, -30 degrees has to feel like hell. A freezing version of hell!:) I actually invested in a Zara coat 2 years ago, it's a sleek, black coat with huge collar which I feel I'll always like. I hope. Otherwise it wasn't a smart investment.:)

Oh my God!! - 30 degrees? I don't even have any idea of how much cold that must be!! But you know what it's funny? Once I saw these pictures I immediately thought to myself "Oh my god, that's such a gorgeous landscape!! I really wish it would snow here where I live". And then I read your text and thought "we are never really satisfied with what we have: me complaining that I want snow and you saying that it gets really cold" haha :) Anyways, I totally agree with you even when it's freezing we still should do our best to look good! Oh and I laugh so hard when you said "Obviously I will not be going cross country skiing in this outfit!". Anyways, I love how you are wearing so much color!! It makes me so happy to see people wearing bright colors!! It seems that it brights things up :)
