True story: the other day I hastagged an instagram #Saturday but it was actually Friday.  This is what being on vacation does to you.  It blends all of your days together.  They become one long blur of eating, sleeping in, and shopping.  Isn’t that what you do on your vacation? But sadly, vacation ends for me today and I am back to real life.  Sigh.  It was fun while it lasted.

I had my eye on this puffy vest from LOFT for a while and was excited to finally get it for Christmas.  I also have never been so grateful for my Hunter wellies.  The weather in NYC has been horrible (rainy/snowy/cold) and I’ve been living in these boots.  They are definitely worth the price if you live somewhere with a cooler climate!

    I’m still searching for some good wellies! I’ve tried Hunter boots but they are too large for my feet!


  • Marlen

    yay for getting stylish presents! the vest looks adorable with the polka dots. and a big ol’ snow storm just hit Chicago, which is making me very much regret never buying snow or rain boots, haha!
