Double The Patches, Double The Fun

What I Wore:
Shirt: Thrifted
Sweater: Clothing swapped (elbow patches are a DIY)
Jeans: Zellers (patches added as a DIY)
Shoes: LeBunny Bleu

Yay, first pictures in the new place! Yesterday I finally finished setting up the area I really wanted to use for outfit posts, and took some pictures yesterday so expect those soon.

I got this sweater at the clothing swap I attended just after we moved, but I felt like it needed a little something extra so I added some suede elbow patches. I have always really liked the studious professor look, haha. I wasn't sure if it would be too much to wear two items of clothing with patches together, but I think it kind of worked in this case. The sweater is very warm and cozy, perfect for the ridiculously cold (-39 C!) weather we have been having here lately. I feel like I am forever hunting in my closet for the warmest thing possible to wear, every day is a double pants kind of day haha! I think I also caught a cold from the weather, it is pretty draughty in our new place (the curse of old houses), and there is no insulation at work so it was a bit of a double whammy. I am happy to say that I am feeling a little better today after sitting around drinking loads of tea. Thankfully the weather is supposed to warm up a bit by the weekend, I'm not sure how much more of the frigid temperatures I can take. I did get a lot of sweet sweaters at that clothing swap to tide me over though :D


  1. Ah! I love all the patches! Knee patches and elbow patches and I just love it!

    we also had the crazy cold. Our wind-chill got to -36, there was one morning I very seriously thought my car wouldn't start.

  2. Awesome patches! We hit -38 in Edmonton too, so I feel your pain. Vitamin D and C and tea and put some plastic on your windows!

  3. omg that's so cold! It's totally the opposite here. It was 44C on Saturday! Love the double patches!

  4. Thanks Sarah!
    brrr dats cold! You aren't that far away from me so we share a lot of the same weather.

  5. Thanks! Ew, that's way too cold. I drank a looooot of green tea and honey (went through a whole bottle in 2 days!) and I feel much better now, thanks :)

  6. Yes, yes it is. Luckily it has warmed up a nit now and the skating rink sidewalks have returned to normal. 44C is way too hot! You can;t win wherever you are apparently lol.
