It’s still one month until Christmas, but it already feels like it’s January outside. I’m not impressed, Mother Nature. Not impressed at all!
I had dinner plans on Saturday night, and thought nothing of the drive to get to the restaurant. On a typical night, the drive is only about 25 minutes, but about 8 minutes in, it started snowing. A lot. Before I knew it, I was white knuckled on the steering wheel and making my way up the street in almost zero visibility. Fun times.
Luckily, I made it safely to and from the restaurant, as did my friends, but I quickly remembered the horror of winter driving. It is no secret that your chances of getting in an accident are increased when driving your car in inclement weather, so it is important to take your time and be extra cautious to avoid any disasters. Let’s hope everyone else remembers how to drive in the winter so we’re prepared when it snows on a weekday.
This morning was dry, but still way too cold for me. It made the 10 minute walk from the subway to my office highly unpleasant. Even though I was in a bad mood because of that walk, I tried to come into work without whining about the cold….but apparently, my face gave it away. Oops.
You’ll notice, I’m not wearing a winter jacket in the photos below. I took these shots last week, so I wasn’t completely out of line to be wearing this jacket. I’m not sure I’d be able to pull the look off right now though.
Why all of the black? I’ve been drawn to monochromatic colour palates lately, so what better colour to style than black, right? This was the first time I’ve ever put together a completely black outfit, and really loved how edgy I felt…but that might have been the faux leather pants, not the colour scheme, per say.
