here we have it, Vancouver.
a nice taste of the winter chill.
my dress code?
i'm either in layer upon layer [upon layer]
i've thrown on a light jacket & i'm out the door.
sometimes i just don't care.
sometimes i wake up in the morning with a coffee/tea in hand & walk out the door without even the slightest consideration that maybe [just maybe]
it's minus 8 degrees out.
SOMETIMES i just wanna dress the way i wanna frickin dress.
and so then i freeze... 99% of the time.
but then i find myself at the end of the day asking myself how i survived & without ever having a proper explanation i just accept that it will
always be "battle of the weather" when it comes to my style choices.
and so i'll go to sleep,
and [probably] do it all over again.

i'd been going over and over how to properly layer for this weather & for awhile i was a little stumped.
so i throw on a basic top & add a blazer/cardigan/vest overtop?
i can layer a sweater or hoodie over top of a tunic over top of an even longer tunic.
add a scarf.
add a hat.
...add earmuffs [or don't]
i like to refer to this process of layering as "blobbing"
simply b/c one may end up looking like...[duh] a friggin' BLOB.
i can't tell you it's the most flattering look.
blobbing isn't some sort of "mating call technique".
in fact it may not even get you a single glance from the male sex.
it just is what it is.
the real good, oversized, baggy sweaters that have ZERO shape to them are like...
how do i say this?
eating the eyeball of a fish,
...it's the best part.
