i can't believe it's already thursday! my three day weekend turned into a four day weekend because of a pretty big snow storm that hit maryland on monday night! so i ended up having tuesday off, and then a 2 hour delay wednesday and basically by the time i made it into my office yesterday afternoon i had totally forgotten what it looked like. one of the many joys of working for a university. snow days are just plain old fun. it's something to look forward to that makes the single digit temps a bit more bearable. it always reminds me of the good ol days of sledding and hot chocolate when you were a kid. except now they are more along the lines of sleeping in and drinking wine. yay for being a grown up!
this snow was the fluffy, pretty, perfect kind of snow, so obviously i made anthony come outside with me so i could run and jump around like a 5 year old and he could snap some pics. there's something about falling snow that is just magical. waking up and peeking out the window and seeing the ground covered in all white and pretty flakes coming down from the sky definitely makes for a perfect morning. i spent the day bundled up inside with hot tea, anthony, and gilmore girls. we had soup cooking in the crock pot and it made our apartment smell amazing all day long.
i kept warm outside in my new favorite coat and some fun accessories. i found this coat at marshalls a couple weeks ago. it's gorgeous and i love how the color will match literally every scarf and hat in my wardrobe. the length is perfect for chilly mornings commuting to work and the cinched waist keeps me from looking overly frumpy. it was a lot more than i usually spend on one item, but it's great quality and will last a while, so i think it's a good investment piece.
since every part of my outfit was a tad bit on the monochromatic side, i went with this fun pink patterned pants to stand out in the snow. they are one of my fave thrifted pieces in my wardrobe. there's just something fabulous about finding a kick ass pair of pants in your size for less than 10 bucks. you just can't beat it! and of course a beanie. i'm allll about beanies right now. i have quite the collection going. ones with little puff balls on the top are my favorite. obviously.
hope everyone getting hit by these snow storms is staying safe! happy almost weekend!
