St. Patrick's Day - Let's Go Out!

It's bloody freezing in Baltimore. I mean seriously, ridiculously cold, the kind of cold where you start thinking 40 degrees is 'warm'. That won't stop yours truly from going out for St. Patrick's Day, but it does mean I will be wearing long underwear, jeans and boots with a good tread.
Not much fun, huh? Nothing glamorous, you say? Well I say 'Nay-Nay!' there's always something gorgeous to wear when you shop the Etsy way!
For cold weather, when you're prone to wandering the streets, watching the drunkards fondle the Fells Point mermaid, it's all about that top layer.

Over my sensible jeans and boots might come a glorious wool trench like this one from VeriteVintage:
Look at the size of the pockets on that beauty! Enough room to hold cell phone, keys and a couple of protein bars so March 18th won't feel so bad.

Now for some colour, this not too chunky scarf from GreenCouch:
Soft, warm and not a giant cowl that I might spill my drink into - perfect.

And finally (because with my hat and gloves there's no where else to add colour!) lovely little enamel earrings from StacyHatfield:
Why yes, tiny spring leaves are just a heartbeat away!

Exaggerating a bit on that temp, aren't you? It's 11:59 p.m. on St. Paddy's Day and it's 54 degrees in Canton! Or have we just been frozen here for so long that we now expect it to be cold?

Well, when I wrote this, about two weeks early - when I was shopping for St. Pat's day, we still had highs in the forties and lows in the upper twenties.
Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway!, I was grateful that it was warm that day!
