I don’t know what it is about this sweater, but when I saw it earlier this fall, I was instantly drawn to it. Like, a magnetic force. I mean, I love stripes. I love leopard. And I’m always on the hunt for orange & blue. I tried leaving the store without it, but ended up coming right back and buying it. I couldn’t say no!
It’s perfectly cozy for a whole slew of winter activities. Whether it’s a football or basketball game, or just a weekend brunch, I’m all about the oversized sweaters lately. Winter hibernation, anyone?
And on an unrelated and random note, I’ve turned into one of those people. You know, the ones that are constantly complaining about the weather like it’s the only thing they know of to talk about. Yep, guilty as charged. The really pathetic part is that we’ve had the most mild winter in the midwest up until the last few weeks. But man on man, the last few weeks have been a struggle. It’s only been in the 20’s, but it’s felt like the teens. We’ve got a long road ahead and I’m not quite sure how I’m going to make it through.. Yesterday was my first “shoot day” of 2016 and it was so miserable (my phone said it felt like 14 degrees at the time) that I’m not sure how the next four months are going to pan out. I need to think of some creative indoor ideas ASAP!
Walking 10,000 steps outside everyday has been a struggle, too, but I’ve been making myself get outside and get moving. I cringe thinking about the day that I just walk on the treadmill in the gym in my building. I’ll save those never-leave-the-building-days for a blizzard or something.
I have warm coats and I’m always wearing a scarf, gloves, and a beanie. Any other tricks? It’s not like I grew up in a tropical climate by any means, but I’m having a hard time adjusting. Maybe it’s just those first few weeks where everything seems colder than it is… And then you adapt and just kind of become numb? Let’s hope that’s on the horizon!
