A Russian Babushka

Winston wanted to join in oh so badly. How can anyone deny that little face of gold?

Hat, Gloves, Belt : H&M, Shirt and Sweater: J. Crew Factory, Pants: Unknown, Boots: Sorel via Nordstrom

This, my friends, is what I call my Russian Babushka outfit. Yes I know Babushkas historically wore headscarfs, but I just feel like I belong in Siberian Tundra. And sometimes campus feels like the Siberian Tundra. So what do I do? Gear up like a fur trapper. The combination of the fur boots, hat, and oven mitts often draw strange looks from fellow students and sometimes even laughter. And you know what I think? My ears are warm and toasty, my hands might even be sweating! And you my dear fellow students, are freezing. Who's laughing now? 

*Disclaimer. I do not condone the slaughtering of animals. This is indeed faux fur my friends. 


  1. you make me laugh. you are a pretty babushka. and i like your dog.

  2. Man, I totally saw that hat and those gloves on sale at my H&M last week. And I looked at them and thought, how will I wear these? So I didn't get them. And now I am kicking myself! I would totally rock a babushka outfit! Maybe they are still there... I should go look!

  3. I love this outfit :) Perfect for utah winters although I am SooOoo grateful we're having a mild one thus far. Glad to have found your blog!
