It’s been all in the 30s this week, and I was on Snow Watch Tuesday afternoon – several cities around got snow, we did not. Sadness. But I did get to use my new coat. Which, sadly, is a fall coat. Every day, I’ve been grabbing a progressively warmer coat due to being very very cold on my walks to work, until today, I finally said screw it and grabbed my winter coat. It’s cold, I get cold, and now I am warm. Yay.
New coat! I had been looking for a red pea coat with toggle buttons and then this was 70% off. I think it’s too big, though. I got a medium, but that is apparently 10-12 in their world, and that is not me. I always size up in coats thinking that I’ll need it for sweaters and layering, but in reality, I am never happy with how it looks. One of these days, I’ll stop buying coats online and actually try them on first. But it’s red and has toggle buttons and will be great if we can get back into the 40s and 50s!

A winter outfit for Snow Watch! Happy sigh.

I wasn’t sure on this outfit – I thought the colors would pair well, but I almost chickened out. I do think it ultimately worked. My boss complimented it and said I often looked so cute that she wished she could take pictures. I laughed and thanked her, but thought that was so funny because that’s exactly what I DO every day.

Warmth! Autumn colors and winter strength leggings. I love that it’s cold but I don’t want to go through all my winter clothes just yet. I want to save them because the cold is only going to stretch on and on and on and I don’t want to get sick of them by December. It’s a balancing act, but I’m getting better at it.
