I’m sorry to say that I seem to have caught some sort of bug. However, it’s -45 with the wind chill here. So, I feel that if I’m going to be sick, at least I’m snowed (and cold) in! Being that I was feeling over heated everywhere I went, I took the opportunity to take some snow photos without my coat. Don’t worry, it’s not -45 in these photos. I’m not that dedicated to fashion. No one should be.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I realized as I was posting this that I was wearing a fully Gap outfit. Gap has had some amazing sales in the past few weeks; most of their sale section has been 40-50% off. Most of the sweaters and scarves are around $10-$15 dollars. I opted for sweaters that are on the thinner side so that I could transition them into my spring ensembles. Their scarves are predominately brights and are big enough to wear as shawls. They might not really transition into spring due to their bulk, but I will try, regardless, check out sale their at: http://www.gap.com
2) I have seen a few posts where people are wearing scarves tucked into belts and wearing them as shirts. I think this is brilliant and am planning on trying it! In general, I think I need to get more creative with scarves. I’ll post as soon as I manage to pull off something creative with a scarf. In the meantime, here’s a good article with great ideas: http://www.elleuk.com/style/street-style/your-way-to-wear-winter-scarves
Anyone have scarf suggestions? Ideas for braving the cold and still looking chic?
I hope those that are in cold climates are staying warm! Thanks to everyone for your ideas and comments! I appreciate it!

I absolutely love that scarf! I’ve been on the hunt for a pretty plaid scarf but every store I’ve checked has run out of them.:( It’s supposed dip to -40 celcius with the windchill here overnight. Brrrrr. The past few weeks have been pretty frigid here. I recently got this infinity scarf from American Apparel’s warehouse outlet for $20 marked down from $34! http://store.americanapparel.ca/product/?productId=rsa0503&c=Cr%C3%A8me
I feel so snug and cozy when I wear it. I want it in every colour! Hope you feel better soon. Stay warm! – Donna
Love the one you picked!! It looks super cozy! It’s funny how plaids are impossible to find, or you find like a million of them, right?? Stay warm out there!!
I think it linked to the wrong colour. I got the olive green scarf.:) It is a pretty huge scarf and extremely warm! I went into Mendocino the other day because I’d seen a few I liked about a month ago and they’re all gone! (Do you have Mendocino there?)
Alas, we do not (at least not that I know of!). I love the olive color!! Perfect pick!!
Your brave, you look fabulous though!
I have a surprising number of Gap items in my closet- I’ve found some real gems there through the years! Also, I love sales, also I love that scarf.
Hope you feel better soon!
I’m a huge GAP fan, especially they’re sales! So much so, I visit, or rather stalk the store VERY often to see what’s on sale for me, hubby and kiddies!😉
I’m loving that plaid scarf! So cute!
Love love love your jeans! I’ve been thinking about DIYing a pair (distressing and bleaching)! Stay warm!
Would love to see them when you’re done!! Sounds fab! xo
Trust me they’ll be on my blog 🙂
Feel better and stay warm 🙂
That scarf screams “BRING IT Old Man Winter, I got style!”
Oh my goodness, that is cold! So weird to think I am lying in a hammock in my swimmers writing this!

Guess what?! So Gap has been having that amazing 50% off sale so I walked in there today AND I found a tartan scarf I loooove! I actually saw the one you’re wearing as well. This is the one I got: http://www.gapcanada.ca/browse/product.do?cid=71027&vid=1&pid=918426013 It’s sooo pretty and the best part…it came to $7.:) I’ll be sure to snap a pic when I wear it! – Donna
Gah! I can’t see which one it is! Was it the blue one?? And $7?! You go!! Snap a pic for sure! I feel like the victory at finding something at such a good price is so rewarding, right?! 🙂
It’s definitely rewarding! I was tempted to buy 3 scarves! But I figure I should spread out my purchases so I don’t feel guilty haha. The link didn’t work? Hmmm…weird. I’ll definitely take a pic.:)
Yeah, the link didn’t seem to be working- so I’ll look for your pic! And yes, I know! I try to spread them out too lol 🙂
I might go back on for this red one with blue stripes I was eyeing. It was $12! I think I’ll go back for it on the weekend. If it’s still there…it was meant to be lol.:)
hahaha! totally! I went back for a blue one and it was gone, so I figured it wasn’t meant to be!
