Merry fluffy outfit in Birmingham, UK

This Mediterranean girl knows how to face the Arctic cold: with a wintry outfit that's all about warm, yet soft and stylish clothes.
So I've finally discovered a proper snowfall - here in Birmingham, back in December- and I still wish for some more.

Old Joe is the clock tower of the University of Birmingham, the highest ever built for a campus.
He/It has been the inspiration for Tolkien.

With my roomie Lily, I've enjoyed the first snow around the Edgbaston campus of the University of Birmingham watched by above by the impressive clock tower friendly named "Old Joe".
The ice-proof outfit, grey-ish as the weather was, hidden a sweet entry like this Select grey plush sweater and smart shoes, a pair of light but waterproof Primark combat boots.
This military coat proved to be an appropriate choice: long enough to protect from the chill, serious enough to create surprise with the top underneath.

First real snowfall calls for a first pho at the PHO (place) in the Grand Central of Birmingham
It should have been a hot tofu and mushroom pho. Nope! Where are the flames, "Pho" dudes?

The outfit in detail...
Sweater: Select 
Military coat: Select 
Jeggins/legging: Pimkie 
Scarf: Primark
Boots: Primark

With Lily (she's a fellow Igers with amazing pics around the EU!!!), I've done a new friend: a snow chicken, now melt forever.

The snow chicken appeared in December on a lonely table in front of the Murray Learning Centre in Birmingham, UoB.
Missing since then

Next time, if it isn't going to be snow but a rainstorm, then I would opt for something else: a parka! (Archaeologists love this kind of coat... it's true)
Waterproof, hooded (and furry), adjustable and with pouches, winter parkas are definitely the choice for multitasking, busy people
