winter palette

I was thrilled to get my hands on some fresh flowers the other day so I could play around a bit. This arrangement is the result and I love the way it looks in the moody winter light coming through the window. Although I'm way less enamored with that moody winter chill, brrrr.

cape weather

turtleneck  zara
gloves  vintage
boots  tretorn

Okay, it's officially freezing in Maine. But that doesn't mean I'm giving in to puffy coats and Ross Gellar sweaters just yet! I've had this amazing vintage cape (from Bohemian Bisoux Vintage if my memory is correct) for years now, and even though I hardly ever wear it I couldn't possibly let it go. The pale minty blue, the cool texture, that giant bow... I'm sure you understand. It's not terribly warm, but layered over a very warm long sleeved dress and turtleneck it does the trick.

winter mint

sunglasses  karen walker
scarf  vintage
coat  anthropologie
sweater  madewell
skirt  vintage

A few shots taken minutes after stocking up on wedding magazines (ugh I love them even though they're horribly cheesy) and candy (because I have no willpower at the moment). This mint coat has been a trusty one, and luckily for you fellow mint coat lovers I just listed a very similar vintage coat in the shop

a snowy new year

Happy New Year from my snowy little corner of the world! It's fun to be far enough in the woods that  the snow stays pristine, none of that dirty city slush I'm used to seeing. Christopher gave me this pair of heavy duty winter boots (made by Bogs) for Christmas, in the best shade of oxblood. They make my feet look even more ginormous but they are perfect for stomping around in the snow. I'm a teensy bit sad to say goodbye to our dragged out fall weather, but also eager to dig into my hats and scarfs and thick sweaters.
