...every day. If gear counts as basics, I’ve been in NBB (Nothing But Basics) since our last big snowfall a few days ago, as most of my free time has been spent XC skiing or snowshoeing — or shoveling out! I wear the same thing for all three activities: silk base layers, micro fleece quarter zip, softshell pants, this amazing Patagonia Nano Air (super breathable puffy), plus wind jacket or waterproof shell, accessories as as needed, and boots. I’ll get in trouble saying this on a style forum, but I basically roll from loungewear into gear and back again these days.

Hair-wise, I have a few leftover bangs that I can’t quite get up into the bun yet, but I’ve been using my merino Buff as a headband/ear-warmer to keep them out of my face. People with long hair — how do you keep it from getting caught in zippers when you wear it down?!
