Braving the cold

Today was an excellent day to stay indoors. With the mercury barely hovering at 18*F all day, I took the opportunity to read this month’s Marie Claire from cover to cover, do a little yoga, make macaroni and cheese, clean the bathroom, and pack for my upcoming trip to Miami. 

Staying in all day would feel just too languorous, so I was easily lured outside with the promise of a warm dinner and cheerful drinks with friends in the neighborhood.

But OH, FASHION! How does one dress stylishly for an below-freezing evening? That, dear ones, is a challenge. My make-up is set to a rosy glow, thanks to Michigan Avenue‘s tips (those Chicagoans know cold weather!). Lots of layers and accessories seem to be the only way to go.

With one toe out the door, a hot chocolate on the couch is sounding mighty fine…
