a girl can dream: [warmth & ease]


Today I feel like I just want to crawl right back into bed and sleep until another day is here. I know that I need to get and up and get going. Get enjoying that life that was allowed to me by the amazing people (like my grandma) who were before me. Today will be my first day back to a partial day of work and I'm totally dreading it. Not dreading the kids, just dreading having to be a normal, functioning human again. Monday night when I got home from what felt like the longest day ever, I smelled gas. We had a gas leak and I had to stay awake until 2:00am when the Gas Company got here so we didn't have to worry about what would happen while we slept. Yesterday was pretty much completely crappy all together and ended in a wind storm and power outages. So, I woke up to a super windy day today, I'm thinking it's finally cooling off. 

Our cooling off is nothing compared to most of the states...I know, I know. So, I am slowly finding my way into warmer clothes. The problem is that usually when it gets cold I am tempted to just run around in all things cozy. Unfortunately cozy doesn't always mean cute. How perfect are these two solutions?!?! These Sorel boots (now on sale!) are legit when it comes to warmth. I ordered mine and was so stoked when they arrived. They are fully lined in fluff, waterproof for rain or snow, plus...that houndstooth with bright blue laces (they come with black too)...AMAZING! I also love this Free People poncho (also here). I am loving the loose fitting sweater and ponchos that are every where this fall. This is a perfect pull over for the days that find themselves bordering cool. You can where a standard long sleeve or light sweater and then layer this on top for added warmth. Plus if you need a little extra coziness you can wrap and tuck your cashmere scarf right into that neckline. 

Here's to today being a better day, or at least being cozy in it.

that poncho looks amazingly warm and comfy! they are pretty popular where I am in Sweden though I've never tried to pull one off. Hmmm might have to think about changing that:)

I'm sorry it's been a rough couple of days. Wishing you lots of luck and strength as you head back to work. Comfy, cute clothes always lift my mood. I live in Sorrel and Pajar boots during snowy Boston winters.
