What I'm wearing today..

Today here in good ole Iowa it's a whopping -2 below zero for the actual temperature. The windchill is a lovely -27 degrees. When I was getting my gear on I thought oh my goodness, I must have just put on 10 pounds of clothing. So here are the items I put on this morning. I will spare you any actual pics of moi!

First, would be the long underwear, just the bottoms, I will spare you another picture.

Next would be the two pairs of socks, the first layer is tube socks...


The second layer is a thick pair of wool socks...


Next were my Dojo jeans....warm in most cases, not in this one!


Then a tank and sweater....


Next is the ugg boots....I know, I know they're considered "out" but I live in Iowa, the frozen tundra and they are the warmest things on the market....Trust me after living here for 26 years, I've dont plenty of research!


and don't forget the scarf..


A little bit to go along with the scarf...I've learned a trick living in te frozen tundra over the years, pashminas make AMAZINGLY warm scarves! They are huge, and can go from the bottom of your neck all the way up to your chin. The silk in them insulates like no bodies business...seriously, try it!
Ok on to my next layer...


Ok, you know it's cold when your coat that's supposed to keep you super warm up to -25 degrees starts to harden on the outside. This is a double layer coat and when the outside does that, that means it's DAMN cold!
And to top off my outfit for the day....


and this little number to keep my nogin warm.

After all that, I was still freezing my butt off when getting gas this morning....BRRRR, I need to move to the tropics.

Here in CA, Uggs are ALWAYS in. And what's more, some of the lamer women wear them in 110 degree heat with miniskirts in the summer.

It is raining here today and already there are HUNDREDS of fender benders on the freeways. On Friday it was almost 90 degrees.

I'd kill for your winter weather. I suppose the grass is always greener on the other side, right?

P.S. All your gear looks super cute.

You poor thing. I always think the snow and mountains in West Virginia is cold. Not that cold. I also still wear my Uggs in the snow :)

Yuck. It's in the mid 20's here today and I'm trying to make myself leave the house. I hate cold weather. Cute outfit though :)

I just got my Dojos and am in love! I don't think Uggs are out! Especially not in the colder climates (I'm in Detroit, and although it's not as cold as where you're at, it's cold!) Those cardi Uggs are a godsend! :-)
