Growing up on an island on the West Coast, real winters (with, like, snow and blizzards, and the likes) were like unicorns: you heard about them, saw photos, but other than that there was no actual proof that they existed. So, when I moved out to Ottawa for university I was in for a real shock. I had no clue how to dress to avoid losing a digit.
Now, eight hears later, I have it down to a science, which is why I was able to withstand the -14C (-21C with the windchill) for over five hours at WinterBrewed this past weekend. So, here are my tips for staying cozy and cute this winter.
1. Start with a base.
2. Add a layer of thick, wooly socks.
3. Top these deliciously unattractive socks with a wind resistant boot.
5. Top with a coat.
6. And, add sunglasses for the finishing touch of cool.
Now, you're ready to head out and enjoy the sunshine!
