Hello Winter

 Ricki's jacket (last seen here), Alfred Sung top, Seduction skirt, Aldo shoes (last seen here), 
Givenchy tights, Joe Fresh gloves, unknown necklace & Suzy headband

Winter is officially here... well, for us it is.  I know many of you have had piles of snow for a while now (or, if you're lucky, in my books, don't get snow) but we have not.  Now this not to be confused with thinking this is normal for us, it's not.  Normally we have piles of snow by now, we just got 'lucky' this year (seriously, I've been in the best moods seeing green grass into December, which is just unheard of).  If you don't believe me, let me remind you with this post.  I'm talking several feet of snow, and by several, I mean like eight feet of snow last year... or maybe that was the year before, I think last year wasn't as bad... oh who can remember?!  The point is, we get a ton of snow every year and for those of you who don't, count your lucky stars because after Christmas, it's not as merry as you'd think!  Ha!

In other news, I wore this to my Grammy's senior residence's Christmas party yesterday (and can I just add that I have no Christmas parties to go to this year?  Sad, I know, so I really took this opportunity to rise to the occasion and dress up).  When I left the house, it was cloudy, cold, but dry - there was not a flake of snow.  I thought I was fortunate when I found flats in the backseat of my car as I had to park, and walk, four blocks to the party (the parking lot was full, and so was the party, I discovered when I finally got there).  However, I was much more thankful for those flats when we left the party and it was a snowstorm!  Can you imagine teetering four blocks in the snow in these heels to get to my car?  Me neither, and I wouldn't have had to anyways because my parents parked close and they drove me.  Regardless, I had errands to run after the fact and that would not have happened without those flats (go me for being messy and leaving shoes in my car).  Rest assure though, I slipped these heels back on my feet just for you guys and this little photo shoot with hubs (and almost wiped out, again).

I'm sure all of the comments will say this but LOVE those tights! Awesome, awesome, awesome! You look so pretty and especially the fact that you're going to a senior home, aw, you must have made their night! I personally love snow and want a lot of it so I think you're lucky!

The tights are great and the party sounds so fun! We have plenty of family stuff but I wish we had more parties to go to!

Love this coat!! I am (slightly) jealous of the snow you got...but maybe only for a second. This time of year I like snow for the sole purpose of getting me into the holiday spirit. I suppose it makes bad fashion weather though so I should just be quiet. LOL

You look like an adorable little snow bunny in this outfit! And the color of that top looks outstanding on you. How cute that your grammy's senior residence had a Christmas party!

You look gorgeous Amanda!! I'm glad you took the opportunity to go all out, that's what holiday parties are for in my opinion! I'm on the fence about the snow... it looks so pretty and Christmasy but DAMN why does it have to be so cold?!
It does look good with your outfit shots though! xxx
