Polar Vortex Style:: Layers and Puffer Coat

How cold is it out there! A polar vortex has descended around here bringing very low temperatures.. brrr!!! Let me tell you that these days it is ALL about feeling WARM than fashionable. This weather makes you cover yourself in big clothes and sometimes all anyone can see is eyes, because all of your face is covered too, lol.
I wore a cotton tank top, a chambray, a sweater and a big warm hooded coat. I tend to wear long outwear because they cover my legs and protect me from the freezing wind. Since I was very warm I didn't cover my face and chose to wear red-orange lipstick and colorful wool gloves to add colors to this winter look. It is always good to wear sunglasses during  winter specially when there is snow on the ground. I quote Dr. Ronald Brand : " You actually have double UV exposure during the winter months" & " The snow acts like a mirror and reflects up into your eyes and that can cause snow blindness". Such a great tip to have in mind. Article to read here.
 So, how are you guys coping with your current weather?


Que frio hace afuera! El vortice polar ha descendido por aqui, trayendonos temperaturas muy bajas..brrr!. Dejame decirte que en estos dias TODO se trata de ponerse ropa bien ABRIGADA que verse bien de moda. Este clima hace que nos vistamos con much ropa y grande, y hasta a veces lo unico que se ve son tus ojos ya que estas cubierta hasta la cara jeje. Tu sonrisa y personalidad pueden hacerte ver linda aunque estes toda cubierta ;)
Vesti una camiseta de algodon, una camisa, un sueter y este abrigo grande que tiene gorro. Usualmente tiendo a vestir abrigos largos porque me gusta que me cubran las piernas protegiendome de los vientos congelantes. Como me sentia abrigada, ya no me cubri el rostro, asi es que me puse color en los labios, rojito-anaranjadito y vesti guantes coloridos agregando vida a este look de invierno. Siempre es bueno usar lentes de sol, especialmente si hay nieve en el suelo. Lei en un articulo que"Actualmente, tu estas expuesto doblemente a los rayos UV durante los meses de invierno" y "La nieve actúa como un espejo y refleja en tus ojos y eso puede causar ceguera de nieve". Que buen consejo para tener en mente. 
Este es el articulo que lei.
Como estas encarando el clima por donde vives?

You can see a little the collar of my chambray shirt here :)

Puedes ver un poquito del cuello de la camisa en esta foto jeje :)

English: I chose to carry my backpack so that I can keep my hands inside my pockets :)
And of course knee-high boots to keep my legs warm. 
ps.- double pair of socks too :)
Español: Elegi usar mi mochila asi podia mantener mis manos dentro de mis bolsillos :0
Y obiamente vesti botas altas para mantener mis piernas abrigadas.
pd.- vesti dos pares de medias :)
