ONE HUNDRED & ONE/ dear winter, i'm over you

Is anyone else sick of winter? Living in Ottawa has been absolute torture this past month. Our weather has reached constant lows of -20 to -30°C (-4 to -22°F) with the windchill and I don't know how much more I can take of it. I'm sick of wearing the same coat every day, I'm hate seeing my winter boots and even thinking about my daily frantic search for my toque and gloves makes me sick. Winter used to be my favourite season but I find myself hating it more and more each day. The clothes that you'll find me wearing lately aren't the most stylish but as someone who lives in this climate and takes public transit - they're necessary.

I find myself adding different patterned or textured scarves to this basic ensemble to breathe some more life and interest into it. So far it's working but I would give almost anything for a (relatively) warm and sunny day. I'm not asking for a miracle, but anything above a -15°C would put a smile back on my face.
