Baby, It's COLD Outside!!

The weather here in New England has been more temperamental than a menstruating female. The forecast is predicting that there'll be snow headed our way this weekend. WHAAAT?????!

The days are getting shorter, and darkness falls by the time I leave my office.To help combat the dreariness of the cold, a bright winter coat acts like a cheerful smile.

Today in particular has been dreary -- it was raining, the wind was blowing, it was pitch black at 6.30pm, and my car was parked far away. 

What was sufficiently warm in the morning, was no longer so...

L/S tee - Forever21
Skirt - Ann Taylor LOFT (30% off)
Scarf - from Malaysia
Tights - Target
Booties - Sam Edelman (with 20% coupon code from Piperlime)
Coat - J.Crew (outlet, on sale)

I swear, halfway through the parking lot, I had to chant in my head "Almost there, almost there!!" I felt like my legs were completely frozen as I struggled to bend my knees to walk. Note to self -- get wool tights.

On a plus note, when the temperature goes down, the scarves come out.

This scarf is a handpainted silk from Malaysia - something that's generally bought as a souvenir by tourists (although I'm not one)

I love the colors and the fact that it's a piece of my heritage.
And no way would I be able to find a $10 silk scarf here in the States!

I love your armoire. Your house is so beautifully decorated. What a neat idea to get something tangible from Malaysia. All I ever do is stock up on food. As you now once I've eaten them all, there's nothing to show for.
