Well, the weather has finally taken a chilly turn here in London. We hit freezing temperatures over night and the daytime hasn’t been much better. But to be honest, I love it. It reminds me of home. Both Ken and I were extra home sick around the holidays and I think part of it was because it was still SO warm here in London. It didn’t feel anything like the holidays.

As much as I whine and complain that I’m always cold, it felt amazing to get off the plane in Vancouver and take a big deep breath of ice cold air.

With the cooler weather setting in here in London, I’ve had to pull out the scarves and long sleeve shirts to layer up. I always think the best way to stay warm (but still stylish) on chilly days is to wear long sleeves under your coat and bundle up that neck! You loose to much body heat through your neck and there is nothing worse than a gust of freezing wind on the back of your neck!

I love an all neutral look like this one. I find it really hard to wear colour now-a-days so all my neutrals are front and center. A simple, casual, all neutral look reads so effortless – so I’m often in a version of this outfit on a day to day basis.

    Comments about Women's Alpine Snow Boots. I just got the boots today. The shoe size was right on. As noted in previous reviews, the boots are snug in the calf … what is warm booting
