Shear Delights

Tonight, surprised by a snow flurry, I realized it was time to replace my screen windows with storms. 

As I live in an ancient Victorian home, I have a selection of pretty but quirky windows, some low enough to reach, some high enough that I must commission some help. 

Maybe this wasn't my ideal Friday night task, but I admit, I loved the opportunity to put on some wintery outerwear.

To wit: Le Chameau rubber boots and a vintage New Zealand shearling jacket. 

I don't know about you, gentle readers, but I simply adore winter outerwear: boots, down jackets, scarves, mittens, berets.  It's either a simple summer dress or piles of outergarments that make me feel most comfortable. 

But I draw the line at climbing a ladder to my overly high second floor to put in a storm window, shearling or not.

Shearling is the warmest thing I've ever worn.

I hate winter though!

Snow? I still have my back door open at 6:16pm. I might not mind snow, right.

Shearling, I swear by it.

Cashmere is it for me...and my Down filled Eddie Bauer jacket...snow already!

BC it's rain all the way...
I agree about not climbing the ladder....hire/get help!

Have you made a snow angel yet?

I am so excited for it to be cold enough here in NY for me to wear my favorite duffel coat and jumbo scarves!
