Blizzarding

Stunning lack of outfit posts lately, sorry! Mostly due to the obscene amount of snow we've been having. Don't get me wrong, I love skiing in this, but I kind of hope that spring is around the corner. We've had 10 feet in the past week (adding on to the 10 feet we had a few weeks ago, plus a foot or two last week), and my little house has been buried. I'm a little tired of digging my car out of a wall of snow every day and fighting with the fire to get it going. BUT, I was just having talking to a friend last night about this; while I love complaining about how it takes me forever to drive to the grocery store or get gas, or not having mail service because of the snow, I would way rather spend two hours getting my little fire going than being squashed on a subway underground with about a million other people, which is what I was doing all the time in New York. I have always thought that I'm a city girl (and in some ways I am, but it depends on the city...I'd live in San Francisco or Paris any day) but I've come to realize that I love living in a smaller more rural area. Being surrounded by trees, amazing sunsets and the Lake is such a blessing, as is the support that comes from knowing so many members of the small community. After I got my concussion I could not believe how wonderful my friends were for driving me to the hospital and helping me pick up things I needed, as well as co-workers and people from town who checked up on me to see if I was ok. There is definitely something to be said for this lifestyle I think!

Here's a little glimpse of the view, or lack of it, out of my window:

I love this coat although I rarely wear it; it has this awesome androgynous look to it that doesn't really go with the girlyness of most of my clothes. Last time I wore it I was flouncing about in lots of white lace, so I suppose I don't always need to toughen it up with boots and jeans. This outfit is all vintage, except the jeans, which are from Uniqlo. I have honestly never found better fitting jeans, and they are so cheap too!

I am sooo excited for spring. I want to wear lots of floral dresses, ride my bike and clip clop around in a beautiful pair of Swedish Hasbeens. What are you looking forward to doing in the springtime?

Wow! I have never seen that much snow! I'm from a small town in arkansas so I understand how you can like the rural atmosphere since i've grown up in it, and I've always felt like I would love living in a big city but I think I would miss all the neigbors and feeling of knowing EVERYONE i see, aha :) And I LOVE your outfit, I'm kind of obsessed with trench coats and your's is great!

This looks like fairytale! I know sometimes we're so tired of snow and every trouble which come with it but maybe we should look at the bright side, how beautiful does snowy nature looks.
But, I can't wait for the spring and all the sandals and maxi dresses:D Yaay for spring :D

This looks beautiful! We had a lot of snow in England at the start of the year, It was nice at first but I think I can be satisfied with looking at pictures of other peoples snow for at least another year. Your house looks beautiful by the way :)
