what I wore; oranges and blues

the details:
coat - thrifted / vintage
skirt - c/o Romwe
belt - thrifted /vintage
tights - target
shoes - Myrtle c/o Wanted Shoes

Sometimes it's really hard to figure out what to write along side outfit posts. Normally I would tell a little about my day but this day was nothing special. Just a normal day at work, when Kevin got home we drove up to the park to take outfit pictures, it was freeeezing so we came home as soon as I was done. I guess I could tell you a little about the outfit though - I'm pretty in love with it. The sweater is my new favorite. I was so nervous about it fitting since it's one size fits most but it's perfect, exactly the way I like a cardigan to fit. I've been wearing it A LOT - with jeans and t-shirts, with skirts and even with pajama pants around the house.

In weather news, we finally got some snow last night! Only three or four inches but I'm pretty stoked! I've got plans to head to the beach later and check it out. I can't wait to see it! I hope the snow sticks around for a little while, it's so pretty. As you can see from the photos above (which were taken last week) the leaves were looking a little blah. This extended fall we had wasn't very pretty. I like fresh crunchy leaves, not soggy ones!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!
xoxo

    I'm kinda jealous that you finally have some snow! Over here -on the other side of the ocean- still nothing but soggy leaves :-(
