Style tips to look cute in bad winter weather:This week has been far from glamorous when it comes to dressing! With temperatures dropping to minus-degrees, we have had both snow and rain most of the week in Oslo. And even though I am dreaming of Californian weather, every day before I wake up and quickly realize I need to dig deep into my closet for warm and comfy clothes it becomes quite ok that the season is changing. In just a few weeks, I will start my Christmas-shopping. I will listen to Christmas carols while I search for the perfect dress for the Christmas parties in December.However, despite of the colder weather I still manage to find some outfits to wear this week.Published on November 19, 2008
