It started to snow as I took my pics today!
(Look at those huge silver hoops that Pilalex got me in Mexico last week, they are amazing!)
It’s true that down here in Dallas we normally get a couple days of snow each year, but not normally this early. It’s nice though, to be honest. I still don’t have a car, which means I didn’t have to drive in it. And it won’t stick, which means we won’t get an ugly dirty sludgy mess. Snow here is really just pretty, and then gone.
No pics without the coat today, kids, it was too cold. But you can see my blouse. I am recklessly mixing patterns there. I love a floral with an animal print. I got that coat about 10 years ago. I had just graduated university and it was one of the first major purchases I made for myself. I needed a new coat, so we went and shopped the department stores, because back in the day you couldn’t get nice things at Target, and the selection at discount store was nothing like it is now. I adored this coat, still do. I don’t remember what I paid for it, but I do remember it was a lot, even on sale. It’s by Guess and it has held up really well. The texture of the faux fur is still nice and other than re-sewing the snaps in a couple places, it’s never needed repairs.
I also remembered to wear gloves today, my hands hurt they were so cold by the time I got to work yesterday. These are the short leather gloves I got last year…
Yesterday I saw the weather report, saw that it was going to be cold, and promptly ignored it. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I was cold all day. I needed a cardigan in a serious way. Lesson learned. Respect the weather report.
And just because I think it’s funny…last night we had pizza rolls for dinner. And I had mine with a tiny bottle of Champagne in a vintage champagne glass. Pizza rolls and champagne. I think it captures me pretty well, to be honest.
Coat – Guess, but at this point I might as well say “vintage”
