The Castle

I told you I couldn't wait even a week to remix this coat. It was just begging to be paired with some casual jeans on a Saturday afternoon. Sean and I drove around to look at some of the neighborhoods our potential house will be in. I threw on one of his comfy sweaters and it was a nice little drive! It's fun to explore the city you live in a bit more. There are so many areas I'm not familiar with, so there's always something new to see. 
I decided to snap some photos by our children's hospital. They built it in the shape of a castle so it's a neat site to see. The castle is right by the school I work at, so I get to see it all lit up every day I leave work.







I'm finding myself reverting back to cozy winter style with the cold and snowy weather we've been having. Until it warms up a bit it will be cozy sweaters, hats, and coats for me!




 

Have a beautiful Sunday, Ok? I'm not sure what Sean and I will be doing, but it will likely consist of watching the Twilight Zone and sipping some hot chocolate :)
God Bless!

I don't blame you for wanting to remix the coat again! It is so fun! And at least it's something positive about this crazy winter weather!

Well, you might as well enjoy winter fashion while you're having winter weather! Haha, I'll admit, I kind of miss the cozy sweaters in my closet. This one you're wearing is perfect! I love it with your jeans and oxford wedges. Plus, the amazing coat reappears! :D

Holy moly is that coat not the most stunning piece ever!!!! Wow Katie, I am truly head over heels and only wish I had a piece so lovely in my coat collection. It looks gorges paired with the jeans and hat and cozy sweater. Gah - you ALWAYS get it right :-)

Oh snap, how cute is that children's hospital? I guess it'd make it a lot less worse to go to the hospital if you thought you were actually attending a castle. Too precious.


Also, glad to see that you're getting some wear out of that awesome coat of yours. Man, the colors on that are just stunning--so bright and vivid. :)
