Now and Forever...

That's the forecast for snow in my area.  It's literally going to snow every day from now until April.  So far, I'm loving it.  Matt & I went out to dinner with fluffy flakes accompanying us. 

Today was the first day I actually wore a coat which, judging from people's reactions when I show up places without a coat, is pretty strange.   I've had this one for a few years, and many times when I wear it people ask me if I'm warm enough.  I guess it doesn't look too substantial, but it's a good one to start the season.  Since I'm driving everywhere now, I often don't see the point of putting one on.  I don't like to drive in a coat (I feel restricted, probably because I have broad shoulders) and then when I get to my indoor destination, I don't want to be overheated.  So I've made it to December without wearing a coat.  I decided today was an appropriate day to break this cycle.  The first Friday art gallery walk was tonight, and I was certainly going to need to dress appropriately for that.  The best find I made was an antique store (not part of the gallery walk, but I couldn't resist) that has a nice selection of vintage jewelry for extremely reasonable prices (like $3).  I'm going to return with more time to spare tomorrow.  Happy le weekend!

  6. Hi Laura, thanks for the comment!

    I love the Swell Season, too. A friend and I almost went down to see their free show in Brooklyn, but our plans changed. I bet they are incredible live!

    Snow every day from now until April is just about right! I'm waiting for it to dump down in my part of NY... shouldn't be long now.

    That's such a pretty coat you have there!

  7. oh i really like your bright coloured beanie and also your wooly scarf <3

  8. I like your pale coat for winter. Just wear a red scarf or something so you don't blend in with the road!

    I play this game with myself where I won't wear my warmest coats before December, no matter how damn cold it is. This usually results in a warm spell on December 1st, but not this year!
