At the risk of suffering the groans and eyerolls of the entire Northeast... finally, some snow! HA. I'm sure I'd be singing a different tune if I still lived in Beverly (that's just outside of Boston for anyone who hasn't been reading me for very long), but man, we've really been getting the short end of the stick in terms of winters this year. All the freezing cold temperatures with none of the beautiful snow.

Cold weather and anything other than leggings and sweatshirts has been... a struggle lately, and I've officially started counting down the days in anticipation of warmer weather. But, for this freezing cold Valentines Saturday, we bundled up and strolled downtown and through Rittenhouse for some hot coffee and people watching (we even saw a marriage proposal!). It's crazy to think that just a few months ago we lived in this part of town, there are aspects of it that I miss -- the old buildings are gorgeous -- but definitely ones that I don't -- parking. I've been keeping things easy this season, living in jeans and simple colors and patterns. I just haven't been in the mood to deal with tights much this year. I received this top from Choies recently and I can tell it's going to be a staple through the end of winter and into spring. I love the slightly boxy fit and drop sleeves, especially with black jeans and a camo jacket. And a pink lip... because for Valentine's Day you need at least a little hot pink in there.
