Let It Snow!

I already blogged about last Thursday - on time, no less! So, now we're up to Friday. Almost caught up! This might actually happen tonight...

Rippled and Ribboned Wrap - Anthropologie / Lilac tank - LOFT / Brown wide-leg pants - NY&Co. /
Necklace - LOFT / Brown faux-croc heels - Nine West

Friday was the opening night of the long Nutcracker weekend (from which I am currently recovering), and since it was going to be a non-stop flurry (no pun intended) of weekend performances, I wanted to be sure that 1) I knew what I was wearing ahead of time and 2) they were some of my best pieces. As you saw from yesterday's post, my aim was true! Just wait until you see the post for Saturday...

But, wow, getting ahead of myself! This sweater is new - a random surprise wishlist gift from Boyfriend, purchased at our Anthropologie visit during Thanksgiving break. I'm in love with this sweater (I even posted a review on the Anthro website), so you can be sure I'll be wearing it a few ways. And actually, this is my third wearing...I wore it Thanksgiving day and again over the weekend when we returned home. But, I didn't get pictures of the Thanksgiving ensemble, and the picture quality of the second wearing is just too poor to post. All that means is that I'll just get to wear it again sooner than later. =) You better believe you'll see it again in the next week or two.

For this version, I dressed it up with nice pants and a little more colorful tank to offset the otherwise dark tones of the ensemble. You might think me crazy for baring my arms during a cold December, but I knew I could get away with it given the fact that lobby would be swarming with patrons all night. Besides, I think I like it slightly better this way - as little extra bulk as possible, and the flesh color also helps break up the dark colors.

And yes, picture quality is still not what I want, though it's closer. I just can't go without flash given how late I take pictures these days. I continue to experiment...

But here's the REAL gem of this post. It SNOWED that night - like 6 inches!!! It's been such an odd autumn that I had no idea when we'd see real snow. It typically doesn't snow like this until January, but here it was! Normally, I might have stressed about roads and whatnot, but I honestly was just so overcome with its beauty that none of that bothered me. Once I got home, I even tried to capture our view with pictures to share...

A blanket of snow that quiets the earth and brightens the night sky brings only the warmest thoughts.. =)


  1. I love this! You always looks so chic :) The pop of purple is gorgeous!

  2. I LOVE this all!! The winter pictures are nice too :)
