Let it snow

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

After temps in the mid-high 60s on Sunday, we're back down to the 30s and in the mornings it's "felt like" it was in the 20s (stupid wind chill). We actually had our first very light snow late last night. My computer is in front of three windows, but I somehow managed to miss the first snow. #idiot

Winter is officially on its way, and I  trying to brace myself for months of freezing weather. Now that it's cold and windy, I find myself walking down the street with tears streaming down my face. My eyes are very sensitive, and I look like I just went through a breakup. It is ridiculous, and I actually considered buying a pair of ski goggles to keep this from happening. Because ski goggles are cool. And I walked a mile to the dentist today–I swear I almost developed frostbite.

Now that it's too cold to go outside without my fingers freezing and falling off, it is time to winterize. I love these striped glittens and  this puffy coat from J. Crew. both on sale + an extra 30% off.

  3. My eyes water in the cold as well! I love winter (and snow!) but I do have to get myself ready for it, that coat looks perfect!

  4. Love all of this! If it would just scow in Miami I would be a happy camper :)I have a J.Crew giveaway on my blog today to celebrate my 2 year blog anniversary! Stop by and join in on the fun! XO

  5. That's horrible!! My eyes are really sensitive too and I'm very intolerant to the cold. Ski goggles sound like the way to go;)!
