Let it Snow

On Sunday we got our first real snow! It's kind of a big deal around here because it almost never snows before Christma, and even if it does it's usually just a small dusting, but we actually got a nice thick layer to play in! To be totally honest I really haven't been feeling in the Christmas spirit lately. This whole time of the year has always had it's ups and downs for my family so sometimes it's not that easy for me to get really into it. In fact, I hated Christmas for a few years (especially when I worked retail!), but the snow definitely felt like a little gift just to get me in the right spirits - and it definitely worked! I'm kind of hoping we keep getting snow so we can have a white Christmas:)

Weekend Capers

                              Bag from The Hope Chest // DIY Bracelet // Fossil Watch c/o WatchCo

Long holiday weekends always mess me up. I seem to have no idea what day of the week it is until Monday comes back around. It was a really nice weekend though. My mom and I took the high speed line into Philly and hit up the Franklin Flea and then did some shopping on Walnut Street. Neither of us even bought anything but it was nice to just walk around and see all the fun Christmas displays and goodies!

Speaking of goodies, this cape is another one of those pieces I thrifted a while back and I just recently got around to having my mom help me add arm holes (it felt really awkward without them) and now I'm in love with it! It's not super warm though so I took advantage of a warmer day this weekend to finally wear it! I totally felt like some character in an old romantic book or something, you gotta love it:)
