Your photos just get better and better. They're so beautiful and even more striking are you coat and beret. I love the little scarf too.

Very cute outfit!!! I love the red colour! ;-)))

And what an awsome snow-landscape in your city! ;-D

Meaghan Kelly said...

wow! the weather is so backwards, weve actually had so little snow up in Montreal this Winter (but bitter, bitter bitter cold!!!!)
you look great in that coat! and speaking of little wool 60s dresses, expect a post as soon as its warm enough to open my coat! :)
also, you seem to live in one of the prettiest towns! It's like a movie set!

Sally Jane Vintage said...

Thanks so much everyone!

Lola: I love my Hunter boots. Although they make better rain boots than snow boots.

Meaghan: Thanks! I don't know how you do those Montreal winters!
Actually, Lancaster was used as a movie set once... have you seen Girl, Interrupted? When Britney Murphy's character moves out of the hospital and into an apartment... that was in my neighborhood!

I've loved reading these last posts. The snow is so beautiful (and so much of it, wow!) and I love your outfit and the red coat. I can understand being ready for spring, though! But this is good inspiration for us Southerners getting ready for winter :)

loooong time reader, never been inspired to comment before but i really think these photos are the best you've taken in months. there are only a few other sets i like as much.

have you ever thought of making an anthology of your best photos? for a lookbook?

An absolutely incredible photo -- the light is amazing (you look fab too!) It looks like one of those winter days where spring is creeping in -- the sun is warmer, the air is fresh and life is good. Thanks for having such a great blog!

Oh so pretty! You look stunning and the photos are beautiful.

Charmalade said...

The last photo is love. The snow is all whooooooosh and you're majestically walking away with your red coat flowing... ok, a bit of a romanticizing, but it's a really great photo. :)

I'm also envious how your roads seem to be cleared for the most part.
