Surviving the Snowpocalypse

When I was finally finished packing stuffing my car to come back to school, my mom said "make sure you pack warm clothes it's going to be below freezing again". Being the wishful thinker that I try to be, I didn't think it could possibly be as cold as it was before and I figured I'd be fine with what I already packed-sans a heavy winter coat, of course. I get back to school and what was supposed to be the first day of classes was cancelled due to the snow. We had class the next day and I checked the weather, 9 degrees, seriously? Totally regretting not bringing my winter coat now but I've got to think of another way of staying warm for that frigid walk. My mind automatically goes to layering and how many I can put on before I become the Michelin man.
This post is about how I managed to go out into the polar vortex without a winter coat utilizing the wardrobe I have. I would also like to add that my anorak jacket (pictured below) is unlined and blocks some wind but does not hold in the warmth. Since this is a special outfit post, I decided to do something different and for the first time I attempted to create simple digital watercolor representations of my most commonly worn/ favorite  layers. I will warn you, I've gotten into what I've been calling organized clashing where the patterns of my layers clash but it seems to work.
I hope you enjoy! I'd love to hear your thoughts.
