Baby, it's cold outside

It has turned cold here in Portland - so cold that it snowed in the West Hills a bit on Friday! I'm a big fan of snow because Portland isn't used to getting much of it, and when it snows more than a few inches, everything in the city practically shuts down. I kind of love it. Two years ago we got a foot and a half of snow at Christmastime, and Josh's classes were cancelled and I couldn't make it to work, so we would spend our days alternately holed up in the apartment with mugs of hot tea, or tramping through the knee-high snow up to Washington Park. I'm hoping for a big snowstorm like that this winter!

Taking these photos was miserable. Even when I had my gloves and scarf on (I took them off for the pictures) I was freezing. I've been piling on a lot more layers lately, but I think I'm going to have to start doubling up on tights, and I'm definitely going to get some knee-high brown boots - these shin-high boots just aren't cutting it anymore.

Turtleneck: Kohl's
Jacket: thrifted from Rerun
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Tights: Forever 21
Boots: Ether (store on NW 23rd)
Hat: H&M
Necklace: self-made
Belt: thrifted from Goodwill
