How fun is this jacket!? I was a little disappointed (because I didn't read the whole description) to find that it's actually sweatshirt material instead of jacket material so it won't be able to keep me warm this winter. But I just can't get over how fabulous that collar is! 

We got our first real snow of the season yesterday so these pictures already seem like a lifetime ago. I mean, we didn't get a huge snow but everything was white! (sadly it's all melted already) The weather had been so nice lately it kind of felt like it was spring instead of fall and I was not so secretly hoping that maybe Ohio could just skip winter this year but it clearly doesn't work like that. I hope we get a few more nice days to play outside before winter really hits.

Hope you have an excellent Monday!

  9. Wow that looks amazing. No snow here in the UK but I am popping to Boston and into Montreal for new year and I hope there will be some snow then. I am rubbish with coats I feel really claustrophobic in them so can never find one I like but that one looks amazing!

  10. Kayla, you are so adorable! I've probably said this a million times, but it's true. :)
