Winter Weekend Layers to Live In c/o Talltique

Despite having grown up in Vermont, my sensitivity to cold is my adult Achilles’ heel (speaking of, my heels are freezing as I type this). We’ve had a cold snap here in Boston and I’ve struggled to adapt. I can’t tell whether my tall person circulatory system seems balks at working harder or if I have onset…


Navy Yard Dancing with Talltique
