As someone who considers herself a warm-weather girl (75 and sunny year-round would be just fine with me) at heart, I’ve been strangely looking forward to cooler temperatures this year. It might have something to do with all the winter wear (these boots, this sweater) that’s hanging in my closet with no place to go. And when this parka (I couldn’t resist that pink trim!) arrived on my doorstep last week, I was more than ready to bust it out.
This weekend, I finally got to do just that. Thanks to a cold front that brought lows in the 30s, I was able to wear the cozy coat all day long on Saturday. (I wore it for cocktails, too, layering it over this sweater dress and these slip-on sneakers that I’m really loving right now.) I was able to take advantage of the chill with a couple of other new favorites, too, including this sweater ($75 and such a good buy!), a fur vest, and I even busted out a pair of gloves while I was on a walk with Lucy. (Note: if you’re looking for a new winter coat, be sure to check out this perfectly-pink J.Crew one that just went on major SALE!) This blast of cold air was exactly what we needed to kick off Thanksgiving week.
