so, some snow came in overnight...

So. It snowed. That Mother Nature sure is a tease. She is the Queen of Complicated Women. It's been wet and wild around here for the past couple of days--flood warnings went into effect, and there were kayakers on the baseball field yesterday afternoon (!) And then? I guess it froze!

I've been feeling like I'm kind of in a rut with my skirts and dresses, and I've been wanting to wear pants lately--weird, I know. A few weeks ago I was inspired by this photo from Lululetty's chictopia page:

I figured now was as good a time as any to attempt an emulation:


(blazer: vintage; fur collar: H&M; scarf: gift; t-shirt; old navy; jeans: PacSun; wool socks: stolen; boots: ALDO)

Life update: K and I sign the lease on our new apartment tomorrow evening! I'm really excited! I also have a job interview (within my current company) tomorrow afternoon, so it could potentially be a really big day :)

  6. Love Lulu Letty's and your version of the outfit here--- very cool. and as far as the snow goes--- give it a week and it will melt away, sun will shine- and then it will snow again in May. Got to love the great north east.

  10. I LOVE how you styled that collar, and the buttons on that jacket are great.

    Sorry about the extra snow. I hope we don't get any more until Fall.
