Starburst Winter

Starburst Snow
Outfit Details: Sweater, purse & headscarf: Grandmother's//Shoes & Tights: UO






Happy weekend dearest darlings!
Seems to me it has been snowing on and off here where I live in the mountains and well, as much as I hate 5 degree weather, I do love how wintery wonderland everything is looking in these parts.  Dresses are just not an option on days like this, so this is my uniform on a casual day in colder than cold weather.

I was most thrilled to come across my grandmother's sweater one day when I was packing up her old things for Goodwill before we moved from her house.  When I saw this sweater, I knew I could never part with it and since it just so happened to fit me, it became mine for the keeping.

That's about all for now.  I'm Philly bound again this weekend to celebrate both my mom's and mother in law's birthdays together.  It shall be fun.  Wishing you a swell weekend too!

Love bunches,

  5. how special to have found your grandmother's sweater! it's beautiful. i totally understand it being too cold to wear anything else... sometimes, practicality just comes before anything else.

  8. Aw that's so sweet that this is your grandmother's sweater! I'm sure she would have loved it on you :) because you look stunning in it. It's always nice when we can cherish different things that help us to remember our loved ones like that.

    I would love for some cold weather to hit Georgia again. Everyday this week/last week it has been in the 70s. Bleh! That's too hot for me to wear tights comfortably and I have 2 pairs of jeans that I can't possibly stand to wear 7 days in a row! ((Good thing I bought like 6 pairs on last night (pastels&mints!!!)) :P
