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.

Anthropologie sweater

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

Thanks for your comment on my blog yesterday!

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!

Jay said...

wow, I love this! So cute :)

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.

Joanna said...

Gorgeous! I love the colors in that scarf! Sign me up for the eye-muffs.

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.

duckalicious said...

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!

You look amazing in blue, and you don`t look cold (even if blue is quite cold color) This outfit is so stylish.

Lovely outfit! I'm freezing all the time and considering inventing some sort of hot water bottle harness to wear under my clothes.

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.

Johanna said...

That slate gray is a good color for you! Love evyething about this outfit.

Lynzy said...

The weather here has been AWFUL. Snow every day and temperatures around 0 degrees. It makes for some interesting outfit photos! You look great in the cold :)

Fantastic photos as always :)

Melanie said...

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?

There's definitely a market for eye-muffs. You should whip up a prototype!

That belt is too cool for words.

I love the socks with the shoes!

Between Laundry Days said...

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

Camilou said...

i think this ensemble is very elegant, modern and looks overall wonderful... and as a long-time flickr follower of yours, do i recognize those glove things? aren't they from your thumbnail image? :)

Nikki said...

Beautiful, E. I'm feeling the call of blue, too. But today it's red - for warming up!

Daphne said...

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.

Kirstin Marie said...

You look gorgeous even though you are cold. This outfit is amazing, I am in love with your dress. Your photos are so crisp and beautiful! What kind of camera/lens do you use???

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...

The Fancy Teacup said...

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.

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!

Kristin Wyly said...

Gorgeous Clara said...

I think those shoes are the most fantastic shoes ever! I so want a pair like that.
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!

Fashion Therapist said...

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

LyddieGal said...

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.
