I am so sick of winter and all the dark colours that go along with it! I decided to layer something bright and cheerful under my dark clothes today to combat the winter doldrums. Spring really can't come soon enough! I'm loving all the spring and summer lookbooks popping up on-line, they're something to tide me over until the snow melts for good.

Someone asked on an earlier post how I stay warm in the winter (apologies it's taken so long to reply). If I'm going to be spending a large chunk of time outdoors, which isn't often, I'll layer tights under thick knitted pants along with mukluks, a heavier coat and a hat/scarf/mitts. 

Most days I usually have tights and a cami or tank under whatever I'm wearing and I'm fine. I actually have the problem of being too warm inside and end up having to remove layers. It's always a pain to try and figure out where to stash my coat. Maybe it's because I wore a uniform for 5 years in high school and spent my days waiting for the bus in a kilt and tights that's made me indifferent to the cold. Either way I find layers are the key to staying warm in the winter!
