I guess I was putting quite a bit of pressure on this weekend and I have to say it really lived up to all of my expectations. Friday was a chilly night but it was fun to bundle up in tights and a wool coat to walk downtown for the art gallery openings. There's also a new vintage shop in town that I was able to check out for the first time and I have to say, I'm going to be in so much trouble with that shop! I pretty much wanted to take home everything in the shop. I'm already thinking about the next time I can go back.
The rest of the weekend was pretty chill with lots of housework (the good kind that makes you feel like you've really accomplished something), a trip to Trader Joe's (oh, how I miss you!), and lots of napping on the couch with the cats while Tom watched football.
As for what I'm wearing, I wasn't completely convinced about this Madewell cape when I got it. I thought it looked a little like I was wearing a big blanket. However, after just one wear, I'm totally convinced that I'll be living in it most of the winter. It's just so cozy and well... sort of like wearing a big blanket, which I guess ended up being a good thing.
The knee socks are a new favorite as well. At first I felt like my knees were looking quite conspicuous. I suppose it is a bit odd to wear something that highlights your knees. Just a quick warning... if you wear these, make sure you line up the knee patches right over your knees or you end up looking like you've got some seriously wonky legs.
