Remember this post where I complained a lot about the things I missed in Elgin? Well, let me tell you something: It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here in San Diego! It's way cooler now (like 60-ish degrees!) and while we don't have snow, if I put on some good Christmas music and close my eyes, I can imagine the snow. Which is basically the same thing.
Saturday night, Husband and I went to this little shindig known as December Nights. It was fun! The museums are open all evening for free & there's tons of food. And while yes, we did have fun we left after about an hour and a half. Why? Two reasons:
One: We only had 4 dollars in cash between the two of us and the ATMs there wanted to charge a fee of 4 dollars! On principle, we couldn't bring ourselves to do that.
Two: It was freaking cold! And we parked like a mile away so that we could avoid paying a fee to park and crazy drivers. As we were walking the mile back to our car, I started to think how nice it'd be if I had a coat or sweater to bundle myself up. Hence, this list:
1). A coat with faux-fur just says class to me. Add a bow and you've got mega-class. Kind of like mega-desk.
2). This cozy little sweater just screams "Holidays!", don't you think?
3). I feel like the neckline of this pretty, feminine number would be universally flattering on all women. Do you think it'd look good on you?
4). Dainty, soft, & subtle. I love the blues.
5). Pretty simple & straightforward. But I like the buttons on the shoulder & multi-colored speckles throughout the oatmeal wool.
6). You know, 6 months ago I never ever would have worn something like this. But now, I think I'd live in it. Funny how things change, huh?
7). This jacket reminds of 1940s Germany (I've been watching a lot of German WWII films lately). I love the earthy tone, buttons, & the collar.
8). Since I was a kid, I've hated turtlenecks. They make me feel claustrophobic and trapped. And I admittedly, still don't own one to this day. But I'd be willing to give this one a try.
9). My obsession with mint green continues. This sweater just looks so comfy & versatile. Good for layering?
10). Just look at that lace collar. What an easy way to feminize any plain shirt. so. pretty.
Ok. Question: What's the difference between a jacket & a coat? 'Cause I have no idea...
