This week started off with the seasons first snowstorm. Usually, when I hear it’s going to snow a lot, I shrug it off, because people like to hype up a big weather event. This was the real deal, though, and I have to admit I kind of liked it! My thoughts are if it’s going to be this cold, there might as well be snow on the ground. For me, it’s a nice distraction, and takes my mind off the fact that my nose is constantly running and I can’t feel my fingertips an hour after being outside.
The real reason I had no complaints about the snow Monday was that it gave me the perfect excuse to wear my new sparkly Ann Taylor hat! There were some great sales last weekend, and I took full advantage. I snatched up this hat, and was waiting for Mother Nature to do her job and make me wear it. She acted quickly, which tells me she can appreciate some good winter fashion. I’ve always wanted a cute winter hat, and this knit beanie was the perfect combination of glam and sparkle.
I mentioned how much I’ve been wearing this coat, and I’m obviously sticking to my word. I actually had an epiphany over the weekend when I went out with my friends. As we were all walking to the bar, I noticed all of us had coats on (guys included), and got weirdly happy about it. This might sound really bizarre. Coats in November? Isn’t that normal? I think it’s normal, but everyone my age has always ditched the coat on the weekends up until now. I think people have a higher tolerance to the cold than me, but I always hated being the only girl with a coat out, so I too would ditch the coat *peer pressure at its finest*. This was a thing all through college, and even the last two years since college. However, every single one of us wore a coat out last weekend. Weird as it may sound, it made me extremely happy that everyone is getting to the age where they want to bundle up. On the flipside, it also made me feel really old that I get that much happiness out of wearing a coat.
