Trendy Tuesday -- Winter Fashionistas?

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! Winter has finally arrived in Wisconsin - we are shoveling out after the big snow. That is the inspiration for this weeks trendy Tuesday. Part of this journaling project is to document your life - the big thoughts, challenges and joys - but it is also to document the silly, the current and the right now.


For this week's Trendy Tuesday - take a picture of yourself in your winter wear. Journal about it - talk about how you feel about winter. What is the winter like where you live? (for those of you who live where it is summer right now - do the same challenge but for summer). Link to your photo or to your blog so we can see you in your finest winter garb. We will select a commenter on Sunday (so if you do a layout or it takes you a few days to post, no biggie (remember, this is supposed to be fun!)) and that lucky fancy simpler will receive a prize package from yours truly.


Here is mine:



I love winter outerwear clothes. Especially winter hats. Ever fall/winter I buy new stocking caps, fauxfur hats, little skullcaps, flapper hats - I love them all. This years favorite hat is a red knit heavy cable stocking cap with a furry ball on the end. It flops around. Leaves red fuzzies everywhere is always laying around my house. That said, I LOVE IT. I wear it every where. I am also sporting red mittens this year. My other favorite winter accessory? for my birthday, Angie L made me this fabulous lime green and pink knitted scarf. Seriously the coolest scarf I have ever worn. Love it. Love her. Love winter wear.
I know this is not the most fabulous photo of me - but I love that you can see the little snowflakes flying around - and that my hat is featured prominently. :)

If only it would REALLY SNOW here ... then I'd be happy to comply. *sigh* I'll see if I can get a picture taken of me in my coat & hat. :)

This challenge was very timely as I had just been snowshoeing this past weekend. I've posted my entry on my blog

This photo was taken last Sunday on a very cold day out to a medieval castle in North Wales. I love it though as I have my new orange fleece on which I would wear all the time if I could get away with it...and didn't have to wash it occasionally!

Do either of these work?? I'm not very good at the link thing.

Anyway, it was Caernarfon and my little niece and nephews had great fun playing with bows and arrows. You can't see much of it in the picture though - just a bit of wall!! Amazing castle though.
