Apthorp Adventures

My trusty assistant and I nearly lost a toe to frostbite taking these photos.  It was a cold day in NYC with wind that was just plain rude.  That's partially the reason my posts have fallen off.  The other is the lack of daylight- so far I'm not dedicated enough to get up early to take photos. 

We're visiting the fam for the holidays and I geniusly forgot to pack any hats, gloves or scarves.  So as I made my way downtown, I popped into every applicable store in search of fuzzy ear muffs.  No luck.  You can see the blue tint to my lips in this closeup.

I just found this coat at the j.crew outlet.  It was marked down and on sale on top of that.  There was only one left and it was my size.  A sign to me to have a brighter outlook on winter.

Coat: J.Crew Outlet
Sweater: BCBG 100 years ago
Shirt: J.Crew Outlet
Jeans: H&M
Boots: Via Spiga via Loehmann's


  1. I just got cold thinking about how it is there!! brrr! Were just rainy on the west coat.

    love that coat, what a great pop of color!

  2. That coat is an awesome find!! I think the color is so great, and it will transition well into those crisp spring days that are too chilly for light jackets. Getting up early to take pics is so hard, I know what you mean!!

  3. what a happy coat in the dreary winter! well done.
