for the first below zero degrees celsius morning (with a wind chill to boot), i reached for this outfit, comprising, among other pieces, trousers and a dress made of a some kind of thick, velvety/corduroy-y fabric. omg! the warmth of these pieces is like the warmth of a hudsons bay blanket -- but without the weight of a hudsons bay blanket. and the comfort and softness of the pieces? well i have no words for that. okay, maybe this word: hug. if i had to choose just one outfit to wear throughout the winter months, i would choose this one. maybe not everyone wants the warmth, comfort and softness of a hug as the temperature starts dropping below the freezing mark, but i say, "bring it on"!
i am wearing the alpen top (a/w helsinki collection), the square jacket (a/w reykjavik collection) and the tokyo scarf (a/w helsinki collection) by kaliyana and a dress, a jacket and trousers by grizas (a/w 2013). my boots are the rectangle boot (closed collection) by trippen.
