Snowflakes That Stay On Your Nose And Eyelashes

It's hard to get excited about clothes in winter because staying warm takes such priority and so many times when I leave the house I know my coat and hat won't be removed until I get back much later at night. It hardly matters if I wear the same outfit five days in a row or don't wash my hair and when I'm being truly sensible there's only a couple of pairs of shoes I should wear in cold and icy conditions. Thankfully, I have acquired a number of hats through the years and my coat collection is ever-growing, so I have options in those areas--this is especially nice since winter is holding strong. When I first came to Pennsylvania in college after living in Hawaii I only had one jacket and one coat; I wasn't overly focused on my wardrobe then so it didn't bother me, but I always got teased by friends. One friend said they always saw me coming across campus because I was "always" wearing my green jacket and others teased me for wearing a peacoat with sweatpants and sneakers on the way to the gym (to which I still ask "do you expect me to walk to the gym in 10 degree weather without a coat..?"). My closet has come a long way since then and winter is much more bearable with more than one peacoat at your disposal.

Would you happen to know where one could find that hat? I've looked all over the Knitwits site. :(

@Anonymous, I didn't see it on their site anymore either, which is where I got it. I bought the hat several months ago, so I guess they sold out or stopped carrying it. Sorry. If I find a similar one (or the same one) I'll always link to it in future posts.
