As I am writing this, the sidewalks, cars, trees and rooftops in Paris are covered in snow.  It is beautiful to see but sooooo cold!  I feel like going into hibernation!  Back in Australia I thought it was cold when it was 14 degrees C - was I wrong.  I don't seem to own clothes warm enough to deal with this cold weather.  I have been trying layering ..but I am still cold!  The other day the maximum temperature was -2 C.  I made some chocolate mousse (of which I am now the master I must say) and put it on the outside windowsill to set, figuring it would be quicker than the fridge!  Later that day the snowstorm of all snowstorms began and I relished the fact that while many Parisiens were stuck in the snow, I was sitting in my warm apartment drinking a latte with a side of chocolate mousse watching the most beautiful snowstorm :-)
Below are some outfit ideas to combat the cold from wool, boots, faux fur to thermals and ski gear.  If you have any good ideas please let me know!!
Bisous bisous
