I get very excited when it snows. I have visions of building snow people, sledding, and starting snowball fights with the neighborhood kids. The reality is that I walk around for a while until my toes get cold, and then I go inside and have mug of hot cocoa and watch TV. Last night I had plans of taking pretty snow pictures with my new camera; needless to say none of these things actually happened today!
I used the colors in my rain boots as inspiration for this outfit. When it’s cold out, I automatically think of this thick cable knit sweater because it’s really warm. I also purchased this knit infinity scarf recently and figured pairing the two would keep me toasty, and I was right. Plus, the colors are in the boots!
I needed a completer piece that would tie it all together but keep it comfy and casual. The majority of my blazers are too formal so I went with my denim jacket. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be warm enough with just a sweater and jacket, but surprisingly, it was! I tested it by taking Mia for a walk, and trust me, she takes her sweet time. Then we took some photos and played around in the back yard. Only my toes got cold! Rain boots aren’t insulated and my socks weren’t thick enough, but they kept my feet dry and that’s good enough for me!
