This weekend, we were in the Catskills for a cozy getaway and it snowed! Nothing substantial, but there were flurries nonetheless. I was freezing with the temperatures hovering in the thirties– my body definitely got too used to the warm weather this summer.
Despite the fact that I am so, so enjoying this perfect October fall, the flurries got me pretty excited for winter. I’m not ready for fall to end so I won’t wish it away, but I did get in the mood for a little winter shopping.
I added this little pom pom hat a tad bit impulsively this weekend. I think it’s going to be perfect for the winter months though and I’m hoping it contrasts well with my black hair. (My only worry is that I’m too pale for it!) While we’re at it, Ralph Lauren is having a sale right now. Depending on how much you spend, you could receive up to $200 off your order. I also got cream and pink cable knit sweaters.
I couldn’t resist this plaid holiday skirt either. I also got the plaid popover because, um, I felt like it was too cute to pass up. I don’t have a good excuse for that one, but I do think it’ll be cute with white cords.
I haven’t bought this jacket yet, but I’m way leaning towards it right now. Gar and I have been spending a lot more time outdoors now that we’re in Connecticut. It’s amazing what having a car and being somewhere with a lot more space have done for my sense of adventure. I love taking Teddy hiking or just to the dog park. And we’re both really looking forward to skiing a lot this winter. (I bought a pair of skis!) I definitely have cute winter coats for the city and dressy events, but I have a feeling I’m going to need a warmer casual coat. I know I wish I had this this weekend…. brrr!
