Cold, rainy and snowy

The town I live in has it's own personal climate that stays contained on top of our little mountain. Yes, I know a lot of my friends in different places had rain this week but we had full on monsoons and flooding. Then yesterday, around 4:10 pm, the rain just switched and turned to snow. Big, giant, ridiculous snowflakes. Within 10 minutes of snowing, there was over an inch of snow on the ground! And of course, I was trying to drive down the mountain to Charlotte for the weekend in my tiny Honda Civic. Needless to say, it was an adventure. And apparently, in the 2 and a half hours it took me to get to Charlotte, they got almost 5 inches and some places got up to 10in!

Anyways, my point here is that dressing for weather this weird and unpredictable is tricky. It also sucks that it was the first week of school when everyone likes to look cute (even though I try to look cute all semester). Personally, although I own two pairs, rain boots are not my favorite thing in the world. They're clunky and I don't like walking in them. So, I've got about 4 other pairs boots I wear in the winter that suffice as rain/snow boots. 

In order to dress for the freezing cold outside and the burning hot inside, I always dress in layers. My campus is also pretty large and requires a lot of walking so I pretty much am always wearing a scarf to keep my neck. ears and face warm while battling the wind. So without further ado, yesterday's windy, cold, rainy, snowy day outfit!

Boots - Christmas presents
Jeans - American Eagle
Sweatshirt - American Eagle
Scarf - Roomie knitted it!
Ring - Kay

Basically, I chose a light sweatshirt that wouldn't leave me sweating in class and topped it off with the adorable and warm scarf the roomie knitted for me! I chose skinny jeans and tucked them into my new combat boots that I absolutely adore: warm, comfortable, and rain resistant. I also just had to show off the Christmas present from the cutest guy ever that I wear everyday!

I went with simply makeup and of course waterproof mascara! You never know when you might get a giant splash in the face since rain in Boone falls sideways instead of straight down. I also used a pink chapstick to brighten up my face and the dreary day outside! 

I love this for a subtle pop of color!

How do you guys keep comfortable and cute when it's nasty outside?
