In case the Facebook world hasn't already informed you, it snowed this week. Light dusting or blizzardy downpour, the first snowfall of the season is always something to talk, worry, gripe or cheer about, depending on your fancy for the stuff. Whether we like it or not, we're headed straight for the early winter cold, so you might as well ready your winter wardrobe.

Although the day the snow hits it seems most people have forgotten how to drive in it, hopefully you haven't forgotten how to dress for it. Nevertheless, let's have a little refresher.

First: Layer it up.

The weather changes fast around here, so it's often impossible to know how to dress. Layers are smart just in case you have to use your furnace and the A.C. in the same afternoon.

Second: Wear a coat.

If you've lived here longer than five months, this should be a no brainer. Oversized pieces like this are trending and look oh so comfy cozy.

Third: Grab an acutal pair of real boots.

Stiletto boots and ice don't mix. With the traction and warmth of boots like these, you can feel sure enough on your feet to tromp through the deep, fresh powder. And besides that, they're so much better looking than moon boots.
