Greetings my dears from Winterland! The temperatures started off at a frosty -25 degrees celcius this morning but did eventually rise to a balmy -15. This is what we have to look forward to for the next ohhhh, about 4 months or so. Although I am sure we will have some weeks of -2 thrown in there, as well as some -40's just to make things interesting. One day last winter we were the second coldest place in the entire world. Huh. BUT it was soo pretty today, everything was frosty and I loved it, despite the chilly temperatures all I wanted to do was go outside and take pictures!
I wore this because I was giving a presentation with 2 other girls in my Clinical Psychology class about "Psuedocyesis" which is a Somatoform Disoder Not otherwise specified, in which the individual thinks they're pregnant and starts developing physical signs of pregnancy (lactation, abdominal growth, etc) but they are NOT pregnant. It's extremly rare and very interesting. I think it went well, everyone was interested in our topic and the prof said he learned a lot he didn't know! Always a good thing to hear.
Back to the outfit, this dress is the reason for my ordering things off the internet a few weeks ago, I had seen this dress on the F21 website but they did not have it on the Canadian website. When I finally saw it on the canadian site, I just had to buy it. I am in love with the print, the colours are so pretty and wonderful. They only had a medium (im usually a small) but I bought it still, and I am so glad I did! It's so comfortable and soft and warm. I've never owned a dress with 3/4 length sleeves and I must say I love it. I threw on my studded belt, and knew after all the snow I would have to wear my snowflake necklace (I refuse to wear it when theres no snow, feels like bad luck). I'm wearing like 3 pairs of socks under these boots and my thickest tights, so I was pretty toasty. Of course I did freeze my butt off taking these photos, but I am pleased with them so it makes it okay?
Anyways I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
Ohh I have more photos (of snow and the like) which I will post later, I'm also thinking of cropping and rearranging the photos so they're be two in one? Just side by side. However that would mean they'd be smaller, because they're already set at the largest they can be..... If that's not confusing to anyone, let me know what you think.
Holiday tea keeps me warm in between photos I am indeed wearing too different mittens here...
