But, the upside to this chill spell is that I got to finally wear my favorite coat! I bought this red J.Crew number as my first "real winter coat against the elements" a few years back when I was still in college up in Boston. I just can't get behind puffer jackets, warm as they are, so instead I opted to buy a nice wool coat lined with thinsulate. It did the job admirably and has held up against sleet, rain, and snow for 3+ years.
Also note the glittens that Boyfriend got me for Christmas, which do a good job of keeping my digits warm/making my hands look street urchin-y:
button cami, gap
twisted trooper cardigan, f21
pleated sweater skirt, vintage via etsy
berry bush tights, anthropologie
kinnetic flats, steve madden
leatherette accent belt, f21 [x]
duchess stone ring, j.crew
gold bangle, kate spade

Speaking of my college life in Boston, I have awesome news: Boyfriend and I are officially going up to Boston in mid-April. Woo hoo! I am super psyched! We've already booked our hotel, so now we just have to keep our ears and eyes perked for a cheap flight. Any Bean Town ladies who want to meet up, let me know because I will most definitely be doing some shopping while I'm there!
