How was your weekend? On saturday Chris and I drove down the Cape to visit my grandparents and celebrate my step-mother's birthday. I love Cape Cod so much, I wish we had more time to spend down there. The area they live in is so pretty; the beach is only a five minute drive, which actually is the same distance that Chris and I live from the beach, but somehow their beach is exceptionally prettier. One thing I love about visiting them is that there is no pressure to hang around the house, after getting to their house a little early we were shooed out the door to take a drive down to the ocean. Chris had never been to the Cape before, so I had fun showing him around.
It was freezing out! I bundled up with a big sweater under my coat, and a warm vintage collar. I love layering with this jacket, it's so easy to make it feel totally different depending on what you wear underneath, I love how the sweater cuffs on the sleeves make it look. My flannel from AA is probably the one work item that I wear constantly outside of work (along with tights), the flannels are so thick and warm this year, and I love the color combination of dark red, navy, and mustard. Another thing that I highly recommend are the super opaque tights, the colors were expanded recently, and they're perfect for winter because of how thick they are, no more doubling up on tights this year! Am I the only one who feels warmer wearing tights and skirts than pants in the wintertime?
I loved exploring the dunes, I always feel so much better when I'm around the ocean and marshes, even if it was cold. The rest of the day was spent- how else?- eating food with family and catching up with everyone who was in from out of town. A busy, but excellent way to spent the weekend!
