I turned the page to my hygge lady winter chapter and dressed extra cozy for a five mile walk through downtown Astana.
the Old Navy sweater dress
This dress was a q4 2020 acquisition and one of the best ones of the quarter at that. Fair isle styles available in tall are automatically added to cart. I do not love the fabric content (you know how I feel about acrylic blend) but the accommodating size range and pattern outweighed the synthetic content.
This dress is beyond cozy. Layered over tights and boots, is the perfect frock for cold weather in Astana.
the L.L.Bean boots
I asked for these L.L.Bean boots as a holiday gift from my parents circa 2014. That was a year they were on extensive back order, but the boots were well worth the wait.
The L.L.Bean boots stand up to the worst of winter weather. From walking nearly two miles uphill through Georgetown Book Hill from December to February (#iykyk) to stomping up and down the Astana commercial district in these boots, they are incredibly easy to maneuver and be nimble wearing.
The boots fit true to size; I am wearing a size 10.
