This is all I can think about lately... how cold I always am. Yes, even though we're just barely into fall, i'm freezing cold ALL. THE. TIME. Seriously. Today i'm wearing a heavy hoody, a long sleeved cotton shirt, a camisole, a pair of leggings, a pair of sport socks and a pair of big 80's style fleece socks over those, with my Sorel slippers on the side... hoping i'm able to keep myself warm today.
Because of my eczema i'm very sensitive to certain fabrics and try to buy as close to 100% cotton as possible. The other day I tried on a hoody at the mall and instantly my arms started to itch. I took it off and it was mostly made of Polyester. Ick.
Most of my sweaters I already own are a wool-blend which my husband bought for me a few years back. I hate that I have a stack of sweaters sitting in my closet which I sadly cannot wear. Soo... I think i'm going to bite the bullet and buy myself a couple more hoodies & WARM track pants. I'll find some LONG cotton shirts for layering somewhere as well.. (any suggestions for slim fitting *mostly* cotton shirts simply for layering?)
Here are a couple items i'm looking at right now...
I may get disowned for this one... (sorry, Suzanne!! LOL!!!) 'cause I used to hate purple but now I find myself drawn to the really dark purples... lol!! I'll blame it on my BFF. hahaha!! There's a blue too, but i'm not a blue person unless it's more on the teal/green side.
These models all have my measurements and are wearing small so it's easy for me to see where I want the size to be... i'm going to bump up to a size medium in everything except the pants. I have another pair of track pants like these and they are crazy warm & comfy!! I could wear them 24/7 literally. As for my hoodies, I like them roomier and cozier!!
I'm going to use some of my customs income to be warm. lol! I'm sooo sick & tired of being freezing cold. By the end of the day my fingernails are purple and my bones literally ache from the cold. I know i'm thin, but not much I can do about that but layer, layer, layer!!! I have had my thyroid tested as it runs in my family (my mom & gma both have thyroid issues) but nothing off-keel in my case.
On another unrelated note, i've hit my TFSA goal for the month which i'm quite happy about! :)
And with this i'm off for now... I have a pile of customs to work on and housework is calling (actually screaming) my name! lol! Have a fabulous day!!
Are you feeling the "winter bite" yet?
How do you keep warm in cold weather without cranking up the heat?
