Winter whites

When I woke up Monday morning and looked out the window I was ecstatic. The morning of the first snowfall; snow stuck to all the trees and still falling whimsically from the sky. I made plans with my Australian co-worker to build a snowman. Ah, the first snow fall!

Fast forward 48 hours and I'm sitting in my car for two hours to drive the 7 km home from work, white-knuckled, clutching the steering wheel, foot on the brake, and certain I'm going to run out of gas, while the cars around me spin their wheels without moving forward and slide into one and other.

This is what it is to be from the North. Snow: the kind of love that has you singing and dancing around your bedroom one minute and ready to swear off your current life and trade it for a California-based one the next.

Anyways, snow and I have made peace since my traumatic Wednesday evening. And I'm in love again. For now at least.

Winter is my favourite time to wear white. Is it because of it's whimsicalness or because it's the only thing I can wear that is less pale than I am in the winter? You'll never know, but when wearing winter whites I suggest pairing with big socks and fur accents.

Wearing white and furry things in a snow-y forest is how I embrace Canadian winter. Other ways include drinking lots of coffee by fireplaces, and an excessive use of blankets for all occasions. 

Do you have four seasons where you are? What's your favourite way to embrace your current season?
