Hello all! I'm back in Toronto after my New York jaunt, which means I've returned to even chillier temperatures and the blasting heat of my apartment. While the thermostat-controlled radiators and electric wall heaters dry out my skin to the point that I feel mummified, I just can't quit them.

There's something very luxurious about lounging around one's home, scantily clad, in the midst of a cold snap. I can peel off all the heavy, itchy layers of the day and feel like a human again when I'm at home, bare-legged and all, surrounded by the jungle-esque plants that adorn each room.

Do you treat your home like a tropical oasis or would you rather lounge by a fire, wrapped in a huge blanket? I want to know how you're handling the weather when you're not out and about.

Now, last week you guys showed me your outfits and once again, I was smitten. Commenter misssincerely shared an outfit that felt perfect for the NYFW vibe I was feeling. I'm all for classics with a touch of reinvention, like that white T-shirt with the draped detailing, topped with a good ol' leather jacket. Two thumbs up from me.

I also fell for Mariel's blizzard-fighting outfit, which had a bit of a '70s vibe to it. That fur-trimmed cardigan (which she scored for $8!) and those caramel boots are right up my retro alley.

Have you guys also been experiencing record low temperatures this week? Apparently Toronto's are the lowest they've been in about 10 years. I'm NOT a fan and wish "low temperature days" were just as common as "snow days." Nobody wants to go out when there's a dramatically-below-zero windchill, c'mon!

Turning it over to you now, you endlessly stylish bunch. Have a great weekend!xoHannah
