iowa coldness

It's been a bit chilly around these parts lately (perhaps you remember the snow storm of death?) and as a result I've been wearing lots and lots of clothes. While I do own an actual winter jacket, I pretty much only use it for skiing (which means once a year if I'm lucky) so for the day-to-day I just live in layers. It works out really well when it's freezing outside and a sauna inside (as is the case with the library where I work). Behold the layering beauty that is my life:

Can you see how many layers are here?

How about here?
(Secret layering answers: 6 (not counting the scarf) and 5. Be impressed.)

I give you credit for layering instead of going the puffy coat route. I've been living in my down coat, and wearing leggings under my jeans.

Ooh! I wear leggings under my jeans every day, too! So I guess there are also 6 layers in that last picture, too. Good catch, Erin Podolak. Gosh. Who knew these mid-west winters would be so much colder than east coast ones?

Man. I am so happy we are moving somewhere warm. Impressive layering!
