What to wear when the temperatures refuse to raise above freezing? It boggles my mind how the Swedish girls look so stylish in eyeball-chilling temperatures. Do I look cold in these photos? I was. No amount of layers are ever going to keep my eyeballs from freezing out of my head. Or maybe that will be the trend of the future... eye-muffs. You read it here first, my friends. Years from now, eye-muff-wearers everywhere will look back on this post and think to themselves, "yes, this was an innovator, misunderstood  in her own time, the Godmother of Eye-muffs." And with that deep thought, I believe it has passed my bedtime. Goodnight.

  1. That's a fabulous belt! I can't believe it comes from H&M!

  2. You don't look cold, you look fantastic. Usually when the weather gets too cold, I give up on style and just go for warmth, but you look so chic here - it's making me embarassed for past cold-weather style sins!

  4. Eyeball chill is the worst! But you look awesome and kudos for wearing fishnets... Come winter I live in between 2-3 layers of opaque stockings.

  6. I love looking at that site for cold-weather inspiration. You nailed it! Those boots are incredible and I love wearing socks over my tights for extra warmth.

  7. eye muffs :D I'd prefer a facewarmer! I defend myself against cold with multiple layers; for example, long sleeved top underneath the blouse + wooly cardigan; cotton tights + wooly leggings. ugh, winter is so freaking annoying. meh.

    anyway, you look beautiful (and a little cold, too :D), this outfit is simply gorgeous!

  13. You don't look cold E, you look amazing! I love everything about that outfit.

    I do wonder, how can you stand bare legs in below freezing temperatures? I'd be whimpering and crying if I tried that look.

  16. Before I even got to the writing portion of your post, I though to myself, "how the hell does she not look cold? I live near DC, she lives in DC... we're having the same weather here. And that weather is downright frigid."

    It's true. I thought all that. You don't look even the slightest bit cold--you look freaking fabulous. As usual. Can you please share some of your fabulocity?

  21. I could just be spit-balling here, but it might be the semi-bare legs that made you so cold. ;)

  45. Love this outfit. Something I would wear as well. The 'glove things' are cute and add more color and pattern to the outfit. The scarf is beautiful. Sorry about the cold. Spring is totally here in my neck of the woods with weather in low 70s.

  47. Girl, you are wearing so many fantastic shades of blue! I think you've done a darn good job of looking cute in the cold. I don't think I could get myself to look half as cute when the temperatures get below 40...

  53. I will totally jump on board with the earmuffs trend with you, I actually bought four different pairs of earmuffs this winter...no one else seems to be wearing earmuffs...but who cares? They are cute and warm! :)

    You look so pretty with the scarf as an accent, and despite how freezing it was, cozy and chic too.

  55. Eye muffs! You're hilarious. I've always thought we should just give it up and start growing fur like all the other animals out there who are obviously much smarter than us!
    I love that paisley scarf! It looks beautiful against your English Rose complexion!

    Very stylish outfit!
    I know how you feel. It's so cold out and all I want to do is wear huge sweaters and frumpy skirts, but alas, I do want to be stylish as well.

    You look stylish and warm!

  65. I love those glove things...it's such a great contrast to your scarf.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Goggles. That is what we need to protect our eyeballs. We could be very steampunk about it and make it work. I think they would definitely go with that beautiful scarf.

    Chic on the Cheap
