Daily Threads: Snow Day

{Sweater: Banana Republic | Shirt: Jcrew | Pants: Gap | Shoes: Steve Madden | Belt&Necklace: F21}

If I follow your blog and you've posted pictures with snow in the background, it's most likely that I have commented on the snow's gorgeousness and my jealousy. Well, guess what people... I got a present late Christmas night that carried on into Sunday and it was 12 inches of snow! The gift that keeps on giving. The Christmas miracle. It's mine and it has completed my Christmas visit to North Carolina. I could not have enjoyed our last day here any more. 

We lounged around all morning drinking coffee by the fire and watching the snow fall (church was cancelled). When lunch time rolled around I decided I should probably shower and get dressed. We've had a blast! Playing in the snow, watching the dogs play in the snow, and just admiring it's beauty. Around lunch dad started prepping for dinner. He fried a {most delicious} turkey and grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins all came over to spend time with us during out last night in NC. It was wonderful. 

Tomorrow we hit the long road back down to Alabama. The snow has stopped and the interstates are cleared, but getting to the interstate makes me nervous. Bad weather in general makes me nervous when I am in a car, but black ice is scary. I'm going to let my man handle getting us to the interstate and I can take over from there. When we get home and settled I have some uploading and editing to do then I cannot wait to share our Christmas in NC with you!

Jill GG (good life for less) said...

very cute and YAY! for snow! We usually have TONS of snow this time of year... but I think the East coast and the South stole it from us! Glad you could enjoy it for a bit. You look great. Love this outfit!

Yay for snow! We're currently in the middle of a "blizzard" and I do NOT want to go outside. I guess that's the difference between people living in the south and people in new england haha

I really like this outfit! All of the colors look really nice together. And you look so happy in these pictures!

Liz said...

I could have sworn I commented earlier. I think my brain is fried from all the cookies I ate this weekend.

Anyways, yay for snow AND for you getting this shirt! Too cute! Safe travels back home!

I think this is one of my favorite outfits yet. Between you and Kendi, it's apparent that I have a need for bright red pants in my wardrobe..

megan said...

Yay snow! It snowed in Charleston but didn't stick :(

Mandy said...

PA got hit by that storm as well, and, honestly, I am not a fan of the snow, so you can take the rest of what we had :)

Virginie Lavallée Bélanger said...

I'm so happy that you finally got this lovely snow you were hoping for! Your outfit looks great (so Kendi!). I hope you guys have a safe and fun trip home :)

Rin said...

Love your cozy outfit. Merry Christmas!

a pretty penny said...

Ok, it's official. I've been trying to squelch my desire for those red Gap cords since I saw them on Kendi a few weeks ago, and now your adorableness has convinced me that I just need them.

Lydia Marie said...

I love this! Those pants are amazing, I love how you are channeling Kendi and Sydney with the whole outfit.

I'm also kind of jealous of the snow, I'm not a huge fan of cold weather, but it's nice to be in sometimes.

Law Mama said...

Yay for snow! I love the red cords - so cute!

Natasha said...

You are totally rocking those red pants!
I'm glad you received your Christmas snow! White Christmas is the best!

Melanie said...

And now I'm completely jealous of your snow! The storm that came up the east coast over the weekend completely missed DC. :( Such a bummer!

I agree, snow makes gorgeous photos but are not so fun to travel in :( I recently bought a gingham/plaid top and am still looking for ways to wear it. So thank you for today's outfit inspiration! I'm going to copy in the near future ;) Have a safe trip back to Alabama!

Michelle said...

I looooove your red pants!

Cara-Mia said...

LOVE a good snow day! 12 inches definetely qualifies.
I just saw those cords on the sale rack at Gap (with an extra 50% off today!) and I may just have to go back for them - your cute combo here has inspired me :)

I'm glad you got a white Christmas too!

missvinylahoy said...

Is it weird that I think you and Red Lips & Bardot Hair are channeling the same inspiration? Check out her outfit! http://redlipsandbardothair.blogspot.com/2010/12/burbs.html

Hayley said...

LOVE this outfit. I would have thought that red skinnys with a black and white shirt would be punkish but you styled it SO cute!Good work!
