Head games: plaid shirt dress, long cardigan, and a woolen beanie

Full disclosure here, folks…after my hubby snapped these outfit pics on our balcony, I couldn’t get back inside fast enough to exchange my long cardigan for a warmer coat before I actually headed out for the afternoon!!

Serves me right for checking the weather by looking out of our livingroom window, I guess!!  Yes, it was a lovely, sunny day…but the wind was positively icy!!  The only way I could get away from the numbing chill was by standing right against the wall of our building; poor Robin was out in the open, and had to brave some rather nasty gusts for the benefit of my dear readers!!  πŸ˜‰

Thank goodness that I’d planned to model my adorable new hat for you, though!!  This handknit woolen beanie was a little treat I brought home for myself from the Circle Craft Christmas Market last weekend …and even with the windstorm aside, I think I couldn’t have made a better choice!!

I’ve still got my fingers tightly crossed that Vancouver has another mild winter this year; but if we don’t, at least I have my “head game” covered…literally!!

    I love hats with buttons! In fact, about 8 years ago I went wild with a grey beanie I knitted and then adorned with my collection of little white buttons I had received from both my grandmothers. It's a pretty fun hat. . . your's is classier though.

    You & me both, crossing my fingers and toes for a mild winter. I'm NOT made for the cold, I'm one of those always cold people, so the winter weather does nothing for me! πŸ˜‰ Although, I wouldn't mind a white Xmas while I'm cozied up inside. Looking gorgeous Mon, love the beanie and long cardigan. Happiest Friday!! xo

    We ARE blogging besties … and always on the same fashion wavelength, Chick! Look at us in our plaid dresses! Where did you get that fab dress? Is it flannel? I wish mine was so it would be warmer, though weather never stopped me from wearing something cute. πŸ˜‰ Have a wonderful weekend, Monika!

    You look gorgeous, I love how you layered this look! Isn't it annoying when you can't wear the outfit you picked out because it's too cold? πŸ™‚
