Ok, so when I first wrote this post, I thought it may be a tad melodramatic. But now that I'm looking out my window and seeing at least a foot (!) of snow on the ground... I think it's a pretty fitting title.
So unless you're living under a rock (or on the west coast) you know that the first major snowstorm of 2016 is upon us here in Philly. And DC, and New York, etc. And while I don't advocate going outdoors in this mess - I'm currently working on some baked goods and a pot of soup - if you absolutely must, these are my tips for avoiding popsicle status.
Layer: Mama knew best. Trust her. I'm wearing a tank top, a long sleeved tee, a chunky knit sweater, and my quilted down coat. Cover your head: I'm partial to a beanie, but do you boo. The point is, gotta keep that body heat inside. Accessories are your friend: Hats, scarves, gloves, heck - I'm even wearing readers for wind protection alone here! And finally - invest in a good pair of snow boots. No, your old sneakers will NOT cut it here. Get yourself something waterproof and made for this purpose alone. I just picked up this hefty pair by Sorel.
