Spring in Wisconsin, it means you have to be ready for heat, cold, rain, floods, and snow storms. And no, I’m not joking about the snow storm part, it’s happened before. I think I carry more extra clothes around in Spring than any other season. I can go to Lake Michigan in the morning wearing a jacket and pants, then drive out to my in-laws in Muskego and have to change into a skirt and a tank top. It’s just all around crazy weather. But it can be a little fun when you get to experience 4 season in one week 🙂
This outfit would be for a normal weekend day (I work all week and have no time to go anywhere. I live for the weekends)maybe start out at home on my balcony listening to the birds and the trains or at a coffee shop watching people be anti-social taping away on their computers. Then downtown for some grocery shopping and a walk. And who knows maybe I’ll end my evening at my mom’s, my dad’s or my in-law’s for a bonfire.
Two outfits, sometimes the second outfit is in the car and sometimes I go home in between to change.
For the Day:
Whatever you do today, make sure you enjoy it!
We finally have some snow! Well, we did last week but this weekend’s rain made it disappear quite quickly. Hopefully there will be some more snow soon. But for those out in the northern east coast, you have plenty of snow for some fun snow activities! Playing in the snow is something that most of us did as children. I remember wishing and hoping every time it snowed that we would get a snow day, but not even 1 foot of snow over night would cancel school. No snow days for me, on the other side of that we did get to go out and play in the snow for recess. As adults we do not take the time to go outside and enjoy the snow. We make time to go online, Facebook, Twitter, play games on our phones, ect but not for snow. Why not? Have we forgotten what it is like to go and play in the white and cold snow? Well, this week’s outfit and accessories will help you with some ideas for snow fun!!
Coat | Shirt | Snow Pants | Socks | Snow Boots | Hat | Gloves
Cross-Country Skis | Boots | Ski Poles | Snow Shoes | Snow Tube
Snow tubing, cross-country skiing, and snow shoeing and just a couple of things to do. You can down hill ski, snow board, snowmobile make snowman, snow forts, and have an adult snow ball fight (try not to hit the face). So if you have snow outside, go out and play in it! It will make you feel better!
I want to take a trip on the first cold day of fall when the leaves are turning up to Door County. I want to walk in the falling leaves wearing a long dress, comfy sweater gloves, hat, and scarf with a cold breeze that nips at your nose. I want to listen the noise of falling and crunching under my feet. To feel, see, and smell the season changing is the most relaxing thing to do. This would be the perfect start to fall.
This is based off of an international house in the NY Times. I send a link to the article with the follow pictures described:
“Not a warmer place weather wise, but can’t you picture yourself walking around the house grounds with knee-high boots, skinny jeans, an over-sized sweater and a hot cup of coffee playing with a dog (likes the ones in the 1st picture)? Well I can :)”
Here is the link to the article House Hunting in Belgium.
The outfit is meant to be cozy and nice for a fall day. The sweater is completely what I was thinking but it was what I could find. The boots, I’m thinking about getting those.
