sub-zero

A few days ago the Bay Area was beyond freezing- okay so maybe it was like 40 degrees- but that is super unusual for any time of year here! I was headed to a comedy show and knew I would be walking a lot so I layered up; threw on my favorite/only red coat, boots for extra warmth and bundled up with a gigantic scarf, and beret à la Faye Dunaway. I'm happy with the outcome I like to call it Bonnie and Clyde meet the Nutcracker!

Regardless of the outlandish depiction behind my outfit, I was in fact very warm walking through the streets of San Francisco. Unlike my boyfriend, who figured he could brave the weather in a simple military- yet stylish by my standards, spring jacket- oy vey!

  8. You have the best winter wear, I'm so jealous. The color of that coat is gorgeous!
    And I always find that men always think they can brave the cold - my own boyfriend claims he can survive the windy rain in a simple flannel shirt and cardigan.

  9. Oh! And regarding Sharon's curly hair - we have straight hair, but she got it permed about two months ago. And I'm so jealous of it - it's so bouncy and has so much personality.

  10. haha. my b/f is the same way. it basically has to be in the 30's for him to consider a coat and not a jacket. but then he constantly wants to complain abt how cold it is. what is that about?

    i recognize those boots :) :) :) i can't get enough of them! they are one of the most comfy pairs of shoes i own.
