#TBT: What Northern Girls Wear…

Since I skipped right over Humpity Day this week, we’ll just go with a Throwback Thursday.

You know you want to.

Okay. I want to.

What Northern Girls Wear…

Okay. Back in October I said I was a gal for all seasons. That I couldn’t do without my winter, spring, summer, fall. Fuhgeddaboudit.

The reality is we have two seasons in my neck of the country — Winter and BBQ — and they can overlap. Why? Because BBQ season is only 15 days long. We compensate by barbecuing during winter, which is muuuuch longer — you do the math.

We barbecue on the patio, in the park, at the campground, and in the parking lot during BBQ season. During the off season — known as winter — we barbecue in the garage, in the carport, on the balcony — if you’re an apartment/condo dweller — and the heartier among us continue to barbecue on the patio.

Okay. I might be exaggerating a teensie, weensie bit. But cut me some slack here. There are buckets of snow on the ground. I’m snow-gazing, as I write this post, and waiting for another foot-plus of snow to drop by tomorrow night. I’m living in a snow-skewed world.

Here is what Northern Girls wear in winter…

I should mention that mud season straddles winter and BBQ seasons.

There’s footgear for that too, commonly referred to as wellies.

Show me your tread.

And my Throwback Thursday work here is done.

  1. Doesn’t matter what you look like as long as you’re warm and dry, right? But let’s be real, ‘northern girls’ have a hard time being attractive in winter with 6 layers of clothing on to stay warm. I mean, what’s hiding under there? Just ask the G-man. 😉
