We’ve entered the brutally cold, seemingly endless days of late winter, and I’m having to get creative with my layering. Honestly, on the -30 degree windchill days – of which we’ve had many so far – I’m wearing a variation of this or this. Exclusively. Nothing beats Icelandic wool. But on days when it’s a balmy -10 or above, I’ve been layering sweaters under my jackets. This Woolovers turtleneck is a favorite due to that nice high, snug collar. I love the look of cowls, but man, they are useless in a high wind. All the coldness just slinks its way down your body starting at your collarbone. read more

Truly sloppy, snowy weekend days get the Sorel treatment, but for fluffy snow like this I haul out my durable, weathered leather boots like these beloved Fryes. Paired with leggings – my new favorite brand, more on it next week – and a tunic my parents gave me for Christmas, they add just the right amount of edge. I will say, though, that I’m getting pretty sick of this brutal cold. Evidence below. read more

Wore this a couple of weekends ago when we drove down to Winona – birthplace and namesake of Ms. Ryder – to take in the fall color. We also swung through Red Wing  and a few other small towns. People, it was GORGEOUS. And although most of those leaves are gone by now, the ones behind me on the maple-lined block south of ours were downright stunning, too. read more
