  1. Cee, I know you live in DC so the weather is a bit different than what I'm used to here in the midwest, but I do have a question. With an outfit like what you are wearing, you're all bundled up with a sweater, coat, and gloves; but then you're wearing flats and have your pant legs rolled up some. Don't your feet and ankles get cold? I have a hard time making myself wear my flats and/or any other shoe and pant combo where I have exposed skin this time of year. Yet I see so many bloggers doing what you are doing and I can't help but wonder, why bundle up on top but then have exposed skin at the bottom.

    I'm sure a lot of it has to do with how well you deal with the cold to begin with, but I feel like I'm limiting myself with my outfit choices by sticking to my boots and tennis shoes. I know I probably shouldn't care so much, and I should just wear whatever makes me comfortable (and warm!), but I'm still curious.

    Thanks!

    1. Hey Rachel!

      I definitely try to wear shoes that go with an outfit without really taking the weather into consideration (unless it's raining or snowing). Part of it is vanity, and the other is because my feet are the last to get cold. It sounds really weird, but of my exposed body parts -- face, neck, hands, feet -- my neck is the most sensitive to cold weather, then hands, then feet. Perhaps I should've excluded face because I don't go around wearing a ski mask, haha. But I digress... usually I find it unnecessary to cover all exposed skin, just some is enough. I think it helps that I'm literally outside for 2 mins max during my commute. I actually spend more time outside taking blog photos! If I were outside for a long period of time, you bet I'd be wearing a scarf, gloves, and socks.

    2. I wondered if that was the case, see for me my feet are one of the first things to get cold! I guess that's why I'm so hesitant to wear any footwear that exposes skin from the ankles down. It's funny how we all react to the weather differently.

      I hear you on the vanity, I'm finally in a workplace where I can express myself more with my wardrobe, but then I'm living in the place where the high in the winter can be 9 degrees! Having a passion for fashion when mother nature doesn't want to cooperate can put a wrench in the gears. Oh well, I'll just keep doing what I'm doing until spring.

      Thanks for responding and helping out my curiosity!
