March is my favorite month of the year, there's always some annual banquets that I attend to, its spring time and it starts to feel a bit warmer, college basketball's March madness, the Icelandic basketball season comes to an end and the playoffs begin and of course on the 21st....my birthday!!
...spring did not get the memo. Winter on the other hand did! So today its a snow day, not like our normal snowy day. Its crazy! So if all of you foreigners out there that are here in Iceland- enjoy this day!
There are traffic jams and people are stuck in their cars in this snow storm, my 5 minute drive to school turned into a 20 minute drive and all bus rides have been cancelled. But the worst part, my basketball game was posponed!
This all sound really lame and Iceland does not sound that fun...but look at it this way: Enjoy the experience, go to a coffee place with a friend and get a cup of hot chocolate, stay inside and cuddle and watch your favorite movie or for all you dare devils out there..go outside and play in the snow. But just be careful not to catch a cold, make sure you gear up- Icelandic style!
My favorite Icelandic clothes for this type of weather are my so called camping clothes.

My choice for this snowy day: My Farmers Market merino wool 'Fell' sweater. You can get it from here if you like it :)
