It was all of 4 degrees in Chicago today. Yes, 1, 2, 3, FOUR degrees! Never in my life have I experienced such foolish temperatures. (And this is only the beginning!) I’m convinced that if the summers in Chicago weren’t so nice, this place would be a ghost town—a mere blip in history. Because no one would subject themselves to this kinda treatment without a MAJOR payoff in the end. Luckily, the summers here in Chicago fits the bill.

I’m also lucky to have this jacket with a super warm faux fur hood from Bar III to help keep me warm. I love wearing my hair short and will probably never change it. But the freezing cold winter temperatures always push me to the brink of buying a wig. ANY WIG! Whatever it takes to keep from getting frost bite of the scalp! This jacket is a great alternative to a wig. It keeps my head and face SO warm. I feel ready to go skiing. Who wants to plan the girls’ trip?!
