The weather this weekend was deceptive. On Saturday, despite being beautiful and sunny, it was an icy 20 degrees with major wind chill. Chris and I had planned to walk to our favorite breakfast place, but were forced to drive when met with the wind. It really wasn't the worst, we got our coffee and were warm again as soon as we sat down. Saturday breakfast is one of my favorite rituals, it is a way to signal the start of the weekend for us, and a time to re-connect after a busy and stressful week. When Chris is around, I always want to dress up, we see so little of each other during the week, I fear he thinks I live in yoga pants and sweatshirts! I resisted the urge to be fancy on Saturday, mostly because I wanted to show off my new coat.
Oh how I wish I had found this beauty at the beginning of the season! The colors are perfect for fall, and it's made of soft wool. I found it while out thrifting on Friday afternoon, after wandering the aisles of Savers with nothing to show for it, I found this dream wedged between two winter coats. Even though I've been focusing on building my Spring wardrobe, I couldn't resist. To lighten the mood, I added a light chambray shirt, and stamped leather belt (which I obviously didn't get a good picture of).
How was your weekend? I have a really exciting thing to announce this afternoon, so stay tuned!
