Preparing for winter. In Los Angeles??

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I have been preparing for the winter weather. Living in LA, my collection of winter attire is not too impressive, because we don't have much of a winter here.


I ordered these gloves {or "glittens"} in a mustard yellow & in black, too. This way, I can pop the top off and access my iPhone. Wouldn't {and couldn't} have it any other way. How else will I talk on the phone, check my email, or find directions?
I also ordered a pair of Hunter Wellies in black, and plan on picking up a pair of Bogs. Hopefully they'll keep my feet nice and dry in rain and snow.

Yes, I just said snow. I know you must be wondering why I would need all of this winter attire in Los Angeles. And I am sure you are wondering why I am preparing for snow, because while we have been experiencing some rain, we are definitely not expecting any snow.

I need these things because I am going back to Chicago. I booked one way ticket there, and will be subleasing an apartment for at least one month. And I leave in 2 weeks.

I should probably pick up a few more long sleeve t-shirts, too. I hear it's pretty cold there.


  1. Wonderful news! That's so exciting! Congratulations on your move xxx

  2. This sounds like fun! :) Even though you're heading over to the colder side...but it's going to be fun I'm sure. :D

  3. Wow that's exciting! Have a great time! What is taking you there?

  4. Yes I have been freezing this week.

  5. YAY!!!!!!!

    I swear by rainboots in the snow. I just don't understand how girls can wear heels or even ballet flats in snow! No traction! When you first get there definitely wear boots when there is snow on the ground. It is so slippery! Also watch out for black ice. Do you know what that is?

    The key to staying warm is layering! Tank top under long sleeve shirt under sweater under jacket. Also warm socks!

    You are going to have so much fun!

  6. That's awesome!!! Yes, I was a bit confused when I see you're living in LA with your Chicago header :) Love it. The weather isn't too bad here right now. So exciting, have you already found a place to live?? Good luck!

  7. Love the new look! Super exciting! I'm proud of you for "stepping out!"

  8. Girlfriend~You're going to need to find some sweaters and socks and possibly even FLANNEL...

    I'm so excited about your adventure and want to hear more...

    I think I'm supposed to email you or something. I'm going to go back and hunt for your note.


  9. OMG awesome. I haven't caught up on your blog in a while and just saw this post. Yay!!! I'm proud of you.

  10. Woo hoo! I'm so excited for you! I'm so sorry I haven't gotten back to you...I have been seriously swamped and sick lately. Can you get together before you leave?! I miss you! I really hope I'm able to make a trip out there, that would be amazing! xoxo

  11. Oooh Danielle!

    Invest in some really warm hoodies and long johns while you are at it. Chicago is REALLY cold!
    Lots of luck in your new adventure.

  13. Wait, what are you going to be doing in Chicago? Did I miss it?

  14. Good for you. How exciting to pick up and move to a new city. I can't wait to hear all about your adventures!
