I actually live on a lake that is quite skate-able through most of the winter--but I am a disaster on ice skates! (I'm more of a cross country skiier.) Love the outfit on the girl in the ad. There must be cute outfits for vintage cross country skiiers, too, right?
It's cold and we have much more than a dusting of snow here in Sweden (+ nightfall @ 3pm). But the snow & darkness make everything quiet, calm & beautiful! The Scandinavians have a saying: "There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes." You could probably spot one of our vintage girls here in an outfit just like that, out ice skating in our winter wonderland.
