Colorfully Cold!

What a difference 24 hours makes.   #understatement

Beach and palm trees one day, snow drifts taller than me the next.  OLE!

oleBest way to beat the winter blahs is to continue the brilliant hues of the tropics.    House of Holland’s brilliant purple jersey sweatshirt begs for a drink with an umbrella in it:

Old Man Winter get ready for a pop of color and a show of leg!  Wear this sunshiny yellow skirt from J Crew with a turtleneck, a jean jacket and a simple tall boot to completely shock the cold!

Wear a sweater to keep warm but brighten up the outfit with Jonathan Simkhai’s multicolor sweater,delivering a hint of blue sky no matter what is going on outside!

Better than an extra large dose of vitamin D (although reversecommuter highly recommends that as well!).

Snow Flake!

Seriously, a sense of humor, cute winter accessories and a solid supply of champs are all absolute necessities when buried under 4+ feet of snow (and more coming later this week!!).

A fur pompom is THE hat this season, from the yoga studio to the grocery store to the school bus drop off, the pouffy fluffy pompom has been sported on tons of yummy mummies.  Eugenia Kim, the milliner mistress, allows her pompom to speak for itself.

With snowdrifts taller than me at 5’9″ that brilliant colored pompom is a hugely appealing selling feature!

Canada Goose jackets seem to be more visible than the actual honking feathered geese themselves.  The hat on the other hand is less recognizable but fabulous and WARM!

Who can’t love a hat that is furry and comes in hot pink, among other choices?

Rolling the perfect snowball takes more than just skill.  The perfect furry mittens need to help mold the arsenal.  Moncler’s leads the pack and knows just how to handle the packing snow too.  reversecommuter’s favorite winter activity is the surprise snowball attack as the children get off the school bus #mommieshavefuntoo!!!

No snow day is complete without a pair of metallic moon boots!

This classic boot has withstood the test of time, let’s see how these babies handle a toboggan ride!

Blinding snow is no match for Fendi’s cats eye glasses made of acetate.

Now get out there and embrace winter…I will be right here making sure the champs is perfectly chilled, hot chocolate is so overrated!

However, there comes a time in every New Englander’s winter when boots are replaced with shoe fantasies dancing in our dreams!

Icky slushy messy months such as March and April beg for rubber soled shoes or permanent Hunter boots!  And as previously mentioned, reversecommuter is over every single day boot wearing!

Not The Boss of Me!

You (winter) cannot make me (reversecommuter) wear a coat anymore!

How low the temperature goes…I am powerless.  😦

IMG_8956

How much snow falls on the ground…again, completely devoid of any say.  (Needless to say, that hurts!)

IMG_8957

Number of snow days where me and the bambinos are trapped indoors – apparently I am powerless on that count too!

IMG_8953

Whether I wear a coat or not...HA! THE DECISION IS MINE ALL MINE!!!!!!

A vest with a couple of layers underneath allow the bobble-head-chauffeurs of the ‘burbs (aka mommies) to bounce around in style even in the deep dark days of winter!
