White on white in winter is so chic

No white after Labor Day. Well, it is an old fashioned fashion rule. At the beginning of the snow season, I still like white. Here I winterized my leather pants by wearing long johns underneath. The winter-white cable knit sweater is from my husband’s closet as is the hat. I am wearing a long-sleeve white T-shirt under the sweater to stay warm. To round up this winter outfit style-wise, I wear my heeled duck-boots and two charm necklaces.

Outerwear needs styling too

For the commute to work I added blue gloves and my motorbike shearling jacket. When I bought it, I was nearly about returning it as everything was hairy after the first time wearing it. Given that there are more dogs in Alaska than humans many people do not care about hairy clothing as they have 20-30 dogs for dogs mushing. However, I do care.

Fortunately, Celestina is a long-hair cat and sheds a lot too. To help her keep her fur in order we brush her daily in the morning and evening. Thus, the idea was quickly born to use the cat brush to “de-shed” the shearling jacket. Now I am not hairy all over when I take it off. 😉
