WORK WEAR WEDNESDAY ON THURSDAY: 18 DEGREES - WIND CHILL FACTOR 9...

 ...when I made my faux shearing coat in December someone asked me; "Where will you be wearing that - New York?".  Shade people, shade!  Who says it doesn't get cold in Georgia?  Occasionally I'll post what I call WWW (Work Wear Wednesday).  But we didn't have school on Wednesday because of

 this

 this
and this,
 that seams to happen about every four years or so.

But when we did return to school today, the temperature was 18 Degrees with a wind chill factor of 9.  So I felt compelled to wear this...
Thank goodness my Kwik Sew 4197 jacket was ready to keep me nice and cozy during our Antarctic temps.  It's unbelievably light weight, but also remarkably warm.  This is my second wearing - because - yes contrary to popular belief, it does get cold here in Middle Georgia. And, yes (go ahead and laugh) 1/2 inch of snow does stop us dead in our tracks...

  2. I love it, it looks better on! You look beautiful! Yes we snicker at 1/2 inch snow, but those temps are low, stay warm!

  3. Lovely jacket, Faye. I'm sure the folks up north would laugh at the amount of your snow. We had sleet here in Texas last week and some schools actually closed because of it. The joys of living in the south!

    So useful, but no good here at the moment - 45C = 112F and 5% humidity but it is summer in Australia :)

  11. Ms. Fay I completely can understand, because that same cold snap made its way down to Texas. Your coat looks so comfy. Do you put a warming liner in your coats, I don't even know what its called? I know when I was young and my family lived in Colorado, my mom put something in as an added liner, but of course she does not remember. If you get tired of that beauty you can always send it to me!!!

    1. Thank you Diane! I usually do incorporate inner lining of some sort to my heavier coats'. But not this one, no lining of any type at all it's just the raw sherpa/shearling inside which is strange to me but it works. Love this fabric now!

  12. I totally understand why y'all stop at .5 of snow - you don't get enough of it to have the proper equipment to handle it. However, I'm thrilled that you had your new coat to wear to keep you warm in the cold!

    1. Thank you Vanessa! I think you are north of me so I would imagine that you got more snow than me though.
