This is what I look like in the cold

I though I'd start, this is how I dress to walk the dogs at night when it's cold. I bit the bullet...your turn

Looks really toasty but where's the gloves? I was trying to visualize the boots when you described them in another thread. We've finally had some really cold (for us) weather and am trying to remember how I managed to stay warm last time it was like this.

I didn't have my mittens on yet because I still had to put collars and leashes on. Yes, those are my mickey mouse boots from Joes Army/Navy

Now that coat looks toasty! And, I agree with TheZ's, where are the gloves! I'll have to get my friend Jenny to take a pic of me all bundled up with my Stabilicers on!

eta: Probably won't be able to get a pic, but here's what I wear:

Leggings underneath sweatpants
Heavy sweatshirt
LLBean down jacket - I've had this jacket 10 years. It's incredibly warm, so warm I can wear a T-shirt and I'm still toasty in 10-degree weather!
Hiking/snow boots with Stabilicers attached - wearing medium-weight socks
Fleece snow hat
A headlamp (from LLBean)! Worn over the hat
Heavy gloves

With all this I'm totally able to walk at least a mile around the block on snowy AND icy sidewalks, and don't slip or fall at all!

I LOVE my Stabilicers!

I don't have a picture, but I did go out in shorts, flip flops, and a t-shirt today....

Lol! That's hilarious.. I can barely see your face!

I got out with sweat pants too big for me so I have to roll them up at the waist and it makes me look like I have diaper butt.

I have nothing spectacular to share... just wanted to say how BIG Bentley has gotten! He looks almost as tall as Ky.

Nanook and her pups. I'm not quite as stylish. I'll see if we can snag a pic tomorrow...
