I’m writing this post from our cabin in the Adirondacks, where we are waiting to be plowed out from under 18 inches of snow. And thinking how handy it would be to have this cozy checked jacket up here. With temps hovering around zero, I could even cuddle up in it indoors! It’s seriously that cold!! But as you can see, this checked jacket looks equally at home in the big city.
OK, so for a hot minute it felt like Spring might have sprung. Then March slammed us with our 3rd (!!!) Nor’easter in 10 days. But even so, Spring up here is never rompers and sandals. It’s a slow transition from down to denim, from booties to sandals, from turtlenecks to tees. So we adapt. And wear lighter layers when we can, but double down on the boots when we need to. And after often wearing head-to-toe black, color — like these shades of green — feels fresh and fun. Looking at these pics, I just realized this could be my St. Patrick’s Day outfit! Weather permitting, of course.
Is it crazy to build your whole look around a pair of shoes? Not if it’s Shoesday Tuesday! When it came to these llama-detailed velvet sneaks, it was love at first sight for me. But not buy at first sight. I hemmed and hawed for a couple of weeks, then panicked they would sell out. So…a few secs on my Mac, and they were mine. And now we’re together forever, wherever they take me! I mean seriously…are they not the cutest.
