I learned a new word this week: Chiberia. And with temperatures dropping below -15° with wind chill in Chicago, I came to a full and complete understanding of the origin of that chilling nickname.
As winter settles in for the long haul, I’m daily realizing how ill prepared my wardrobe is for sub-zero weather. Not to mention the fact that I’m still without proper footwear due to the massive nationwide shortage of duck boots. But let’s look at the silver lining of this snow cloud, shall we, and discuss this cozy ensemble that fought bravely against the elements.
My plan of attack is to layer until I’m warm enough or I can no longer fit into my coat, whichever comes first. Thankfully, this fair isle sweater and button-down combination provides warmth while maintaining a streamlined silhouette—win-win. Even better? I got both on mega-sale at Old Navy.
