Snow Hands


We got our first real winter snowfall of the season on Saturday! I say "winter snowfall" because we got a pretty bad snowstorm in October, which was weird and disorienting more than it was fun. Saturday's snow was quite welcome though, at least by me. I like snow the most when it's just in flurries, blowing in the wind rather than collecting on the ground, but I'm cool with a decent covering of snow as well. We also went to a family party on Saturday, and this is what I wore.I honestly never know what to wear to family parties, since my "casual" is more dressy than my family's "dressy." My first inclination is generally to wear a party dress, which I started with. The combination all of my family members wearing jeans, plus my own not really wanting to look too "froo-froo" led me to put something a bit more casual together, with my old pal, the denim vest.

PS- Upon reviewing these pictures, I realized that snow has this weird effect on me, in which it causes me to not know what the hell to do with my hands. Enjoy.

Shirt: H&M, Skirt, Vest: Goodwill, Shoes: Ruche, Bag: JCPenney, Scarf: Taylor House
