Seriously, Winter, Get It Together

I’ve lived in New Haven for six years now (although, sniff, sniff, I will be leaving this July) and I am still amazed by the presence of unseasonably warm days that seem to occur fairly frequently in the winter. It’s probably because I am pretty accustomed to harsh northern Canadian winters but still...this was a week ago and I’m basically wearing a spring jacket. Seriously winter, get it together.

As you read this I am on my way to Chicago for a weekend of conferencing, interviewing, and hanging with friends - sort of a working vacation I guess. I hope to keep up with blogging while I'm gone though!







pants: thrifted / scarf: can’t remember / jacket: Target / booties: Aldo

I love that jacket! Where's your snow? And where are you moving in July? I'll stop asking questions now.

I am quite enjoying the milder winter we're having. Maybe because it means I don't have to wake up earlier to heat my car up or de-ice it. yep. that's it.

Love that jacket.

I think you got your wish this morning - I was FREEZING!

But hey, isn't it nice to be able to wear spring jackets for more than a week this year?

Katie said...

Love that jacket! Any jacket means it must be winter in the South. Pretty sure it was 70 less than a week ago.

It has been surprisingly warm this Winter, I've only worn my winter coat maybe 2-3 times, I've probably jinxed it now that I mentioned that fact.

I love this outfit, that blue jacket is gorgeous and I love the print on the scarf. Safe and happy times in Chicago!

Tell me about it, weather-wise. This week's been like 75-80 degrees down here in San Diego. People are walking around in shorts, and some without shirts.
