It snowed on Saturday -- enough to stick!  I took some photos yesterday in the snow, but these are actually from last weekend (after our first dusting of snowed had thawed).  I finally invested in another dress I can wear with casual boots (good thing, too... since I found out the hard way that any other types of shoes have a good chance of getting ruined in the snow).  I have two other dresses in this same style (one in red and one in a bright aqua-emerald color), but I really like the print on this.  It almost looks like it could be embroidered, at first.  It's also super comfortable, and I do love a dress with pockets (even if I never put them to use).

The weather was actually really gorgeous when I took these, and I didn't even need a coat!  I was able to go a little further in my backyard, for a change of scenery.  My family actually has a couple of acres of land on the property of our house, so it was fun to go exploring more than I'd been able to for a while (since it gets really overgrown in the summertime).  But now it's freezing out, and it's probably going to stay that way for the most part.  Upstate winters last forever, so I'm going to enjoy the early stages of it for as long as they last (i.e., before the gross slush stage sets in).

I'm excited for a short work week, and this week has not one but two holidays in it!  Chanukah actually starts the night before Thanksgiving this year (Thanksgiving is on the late side and Chanukah is way early), so we'll be feasting on latkes prior to turkey day.  Does anyone have any fun holiday plans?  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  We're staying here, and my mom is cooking for when my grandparents and aunt come over.  I'm looking forward to mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes (with marshmallows on top!) and pumpkin pie.  :)

Have a great Monday!

  1. it's funny because i love dresses with pockets, too...even though i never use them! your dress is so adorable, and looks so great on!

  2. love that dress! it's been on my wishlist for awhile.

  3. Your dress is perfect for the season! I love fairisle, as long as the colors aren't too overpowering (which this is not!). I also love your boots. They look really comfy! I hear you on winter lasting forever. It always seems like the longest season, which is lame since it's the worst. It always comes too early and takes forever to be over with! I swear the winter lasts like...5 months. Ugh!

  4. This dress is AMAZING, so perfect for winter, the print is sooo good!!! I love the way it looks here with this backdrop. I wish I got holidays here too!

  5. What a perfect dress for the season, and they do pair really well with those boots.

    I'm a bit discouraged by how few of my shoes seem to be good to wear in the snow/winter.

  6. Hurrah for fairisle prints!! Love it! Alex
