Ugly Coat Weather

It's cold in Chicago. Super cold. Colder than it's been in about two years. It was 0o when I took my dog, Iggy, out this morning, with a windchill of -11o.

Yesterday, I heard a former co-worker call it "ugly coat weather", and that's exactly what it is. It's nearly impossible to look cute when it's this cold.

This is what Iggy and I looked like today on our morning walk. Even the dog has her ugly coat on.

But, the worst part of "ugly coat weather" is all the cute clothes hidden underneath. You would never know it by the picture above, but I am actually wearing one of my favorite summer dresses made winter-appropriate with tights, legwarmers and a long sleeved T-shirt:

Shelly's wearing: Dress//ModCloth, Shirt//Express, Tights (2pairs)//
Target, Legwarmers//American Apparel, Shoes//Wanted

Once I had the idea for this post, I had Pari take a picture in her "ugly coat" and another showing off what she was wearing underneath:

Pari's wearing: Coat//LL Bean, Scarf// Sarong from Costa Rica
Dress and Cardigan//Forever 21, Tights//Target, Boots//ModCloth, Belt//vintage

Hope you're staying warm,
