When we moved to Cincinnati people told us we would be lucky if we got a good snowfall this winter, meaning it would not be unusual for us to have a snow free winter. That made this New England girl a little sad. I love the serene look of the world coated in a fresh layer of powder and I love the excitement of the first snow flakes falling at the start of a storm.
What I don’t love is consistent below freezing temperatures and snow on a weekly basis. We live twenty minutes from Kentucky for heaven’s sake – that’s practically the south! We’re on track for this to be the worst winter Cincy has ever had, go figure. And so the fun giveaway and gorgeous skirt I had scheduled for today will be later this week because I couldn’t bring myself to shoot another bare legged outfit in this dreadful cold.
On the flip side, I did get to bundle up in this fun coat (and am still sitting here wearing it). I’ve been looking for an animal print jacket all season and I love how soft this one is. When I shop in stores I touch everything. I’m always asking Ben not to come “look at this” but to come “feel this!” This jacket definitely passes the touch test, although I promise it isn’t real. I loved it over my denim on denim look for today but would also dress it up with a LBD and heels for a more formal look.
