Life of Vi – Baby It’s Cold Outside

When the weather outside is frightful, what’s a Frenchie to do?

By Rachel Simpson

Canada isn’t as cold as some people might think, but when the Canadian winter does its worst, it still gets nasty enough to trap a girl inside. So when the prospect of a walk plummets in accordance with the mercury, Violet has to adjust her day accordingly. What does she do? Read along to find out.

1. Laying on the Layers

Does she need boots? A sweater? Maybe even a (gulp) parka?
