Today, I woke up to a winter wonderland in my backyard and immediately knew that I had to document this wonderful moment! While I didn’t have much fun driving in the snow on my way down to LA in early December, experiencing it on foot is pretty magical. I went out to my backyard for a little while and my roommate’s puppy was quick to follow me out the door. You could tell that he was just as excited about playing in the snow as I was, especially since he kept jumping up and down with joy.
Now, you might be wondering how I’m adjusting to the Portland’s chilly temperatures after being in sunny LA for almost three weeks. The answer to your question is that warm pieces are the key to staying warm in cooler weather. While I don’t have on many layers, the pieces that I am wearing are very substantial. This green parka is very thick and insulated, which makes it the perfect jacket for a cold snow day. I’ve also been wearing this marled gray turtleneck sweater all winter long because it does an amazing job at keeping both my neck and torso pretty warm, plus it eliminates the need to worry about carrying around a scarf.
Happy new year! I hope your 2016 is off to a brilliant start. I’m very excited about what this year will bring in terms of my personal life and this blog. I’m still working on my resolutions, but should have them up in the next few weeks. The great thing about blogging is that I can keep track of how well I’ve been doing in terms of sticking to my goals, and I’m happy to say that I did a very good job of meeting my resolutions for 2015. I’m committed to making 2016 just as awesome! What are your goals for the new year?
