Untitled-1

I'm stuck in this weird place right now where I'm not really tired of winter clothes but it's so freakin' cold outside not even my wooliest of tights and thickest of sweaters can lure me from the warmth of the couch. It's fun to wear coats and hats and boots when it's 30 degrees out and the sun is shining and it's just brisk enough out to be refreshing. It is not fun to wear them when it's so cold outside that the wind sucks the breath right out of your chest when it hits you. Seriously... "feels like 1" should not be a temperature.

I've been escaping the cold by looking the d a c e spring/summer lookbook. On these bitter cold days I'm finding the washed out colors and scenes of bike riding, sitting in roadside cafes and breezy windows are just the bit of daydream I need to get me through the day.

I think if it were that temperature here...I would never get out of bed! I sometimes feel that way when it's 30 and overcast..I cannot imagine anything lower!

I love the photos!

I'm feeling the same way, I'm ready to stay inside until I can wear summer dresses again, but I don't want to give up some of the winter looks! I just hate it this cold!

Tell me about it! I like dressing for winter too, but sometimes you just want to curl up and be beneath blankets all day. At least we're pulling double digit temperatures this week, last week it was down around zero!

That lookbook reminds me of summer time bike riding. Mmmmm.

Girls - you all need a coat from The North Face. That will help make Winter more comfy.

i know girl, same thing here in boston. its unfair having to try to be stylish in this kind of weather.

ANA said...

I agree! Boston is miserable too, and I was pretty unhappy about having to go to work this morning.

i'm from arkansas and we've just gotten our first snow of the year this morning and it's just brutally frigid... my southern bones aren't cut out for these single digits! this video definitely made me wish for the spring even more than i already am.

You can live in that video, its called Vancouver, BC, Canada. Just let me tell you that it is pouring with rain here today, and its not very warm for Vancouver. It is 6 C or 43 F. You really should visit in the summer when it is sunny!

I am really glad you like DACE it is one of our home grown brands that the fashion community in Vancouver is so proud of.

That video is so serene, it's lovely. I'm actually going the other way around, from a place that is finally having nice spring weather, to a city that's around freezing during the day, and negative temperatures at times at night. But I miss the snow, so it's okay!

I love the video. It's so calming but it makes me miss summer. I can't wait to show off my sun dresses again.
