Look at all that snow! On the way to our weekly dinner date to Chipotle (yes--we love it that much!), I made the hubs pull over by a park and take a picture of me in the snow. I had lofty visions of me in the middle of a winter wonderland, but these were soon dashed when I realized how deep and wet the snow was. I settled for standing by a snow drift. Some of my expressions look kind of weird, so please ignore those. If I had all the riches in the world, I would buy everything in my wardrobe from JCrew or Anthropologie. Alas, I don't, but I still want my clothes to have that same vibe. I think you can find similar stuff from places like Target and Old Navy. I know that the quality might not be quite the same, but I have cardigans from Target that I have worn for years. The reason I'm always so drawn to JCrew and Anthropologie is because I like how they put things together in the store. I have to force myself to use it as inspiration and "shop my closet" to mix and match things in different ways to make them feel fresh again. This is a new combo for me, and I like how adding the brooch and earrings added a little something. This was fun to wear, because now until the end of this snow I'm going to be in my full parka and snow pants. Maybe I need to invest in some moon boots, as popularized by one Napoleon Dynamite. Those and boondoggles.
