How was everybody's weekend? Mine was alright but seemed really short. On Friday I got to go into Denver and stay over which I have rarely been able to do lately. I went to The Tattered Cover on Saturday afternoon before heading home, which is my all time favorite book store. It is huge, has a little cafe, baked goods, and coffee shop in it, and a mix of used and new books. I could basically hang out in there for a whole day no problem just wandering around drinking coffee, reading magazines, and eating cookies! If you are ever in Denver, I highly recommend you check it out if you like that sort of thing :)
Romper: UK Style by French Connection (from Sears Grand!)
Tights: Sears Grand
Woven Purse: vintage from my mom
Shoes: MIA pampa from DSW
These pictures were taken yesterday about five minutes away from my boyfriends house. I apologize for the slightly ridiculous snowball tossing ones. It took a few tries to get it and I look pretty silly, but I thought they were too funny not to share! It is amazing that you can just drive up the mountain road for a few minutes in this town and feel like you are really secluded. It is beautiful up there, I think it would be amazing to live a little bit further into the mountains. It would be so peaceful yet you could still get anywhere in town in under twenty minutes! I wish we had brought a picnic up there and just relaxed, but I was wearing brandy new shoes I got for my birthday, not the best for romping around! I know it probably looks crazy wearing a little romper with no jacket surrounded by all the snow, but it was really nice and warm in the direct sunlight! Even being up there for a half an hour can be really rejuvenating and remind me how much I appreciate where I live.
I know I have mentioned a little shopping discovery at a Sears of all places a few months ago. I went back this weekend and still found tons of cute things! I am really liking French Connection's UK Style collection. I am not sure if it is sold exclusively at Sears (Grand) or not, but it is pretty amazing. And everything is always 40% off or more it seems, which works for me. Besides the little romper, which is pretty short but I feel is acceptable because of its nice winter hues, I also got these grey tights. They are fleece lined and SO comfortable. I literally come home and sit around the house in these tights and an over-sized t shirt and I am one happy camper! Lastly, I found a black floppy hat like I have been searching for forever. I felt pretty guilty about buying anything for myself during the holiday season, but they were such good discounts and I got gifts for others at the same time, so I am using that to justify it. Eek. Alright, well I hope everyone is having a good Monday so far! I will be traveling home to New Jersey Wednesday night to celebrate early Christmas, but I hope to get in at least another post before I leave!
