The weather finally changed today. The bitter cold has passed and, as I type, it is a balmy -12C out there. Woke up to a beautiful sunrise this morning too.
The original plan for today was to do some fat bike portraits for a contest I won last month. But, because the wind chill was still pretty bad and because we had a lot of new snow fall last night, the photo shoot was cancelled. I had, however, already donned my long underwear in anticipation of the day so rather than get entirely redressed, I just threw my dress on overtop. This is the advantage of weekends.
Dress – Still the same one! Vero Moda.
Sweater – Zara
Long undies – Smartwool
Socks – Smartwool
Boots – Neos
Went out for a dog walk with friends later in the day (yes, still wearing the dress – but with a pair of ski pants added to the mix).
Turned out to be a pretty decent day.
For a backgrounder on what this Dressember thing is, check out my opening and explanatory post
. It’s just a bit of mid-winter fun that I am documenting on a daily basis.
And, if you are enjoying these daily posts, please consider making a donation to my chosen charity: Right To Play. I’ve set up a giving page via Canada Helps
. The Right To Play button under my profile will also take you there.
: if you make (or have already made) a donation of $20 or more you have another option. I’m still going to be wearing this same dress for the next 22 days but you can have a say in what I look like. Within reason (and yes, I get to be the judge of that) you can detail the rest of what I am wearing. After you donate, you can make a suggestion and hope I have something like that in my closet or you can check my wardrobe remix set
on flickr for ideas. Leave a message on my giving page or post a comment on the blog. I’m also open to trying my best to interpret creative instructions like “something Elton John would wear.” Fair warning: some of those photos are years old and I may not still have the item of clothing in my closet. But, if I do, and you want me to wear it, I will.
