So, yesterday winter arrived on cue with sleet and freezing rain and slush. And eventually a dusting of snow as the temperatures dropped. Naturally I had dozens of errands to run. My last stop was a local pub for a holiday drink with a few friends.

This was a job for skinnies and tall boots! I wore my Gap Really Skinny pants and broke out the Gap sweater, too.

The sweater performed brilliantly over a long sleeved T while I was outdoors. It was just right. But inside it was hot and itchy. I took it off when I got home.

I am hoping a cold water wash will help. Not sorry I bought it anyway, because I have plenty of times when I need to be outdoors in a warm sweater. But next time I will wear something prettier underneath so I can disrobe in public without embarrassment. (My layering T was not for public eyes!)

Worn outside with my colour blocked Vince Camuto pea coat - love this coat! And my newsboy hat, which is a bit OLD hat, I know....and maybe not the best with the coat, but there was no way I was going to let my head get sopping wet in that weather. This kept me warm and dry.
