Winter Wednesday Woes

I have heard a lot of people complaining about winter and how they can't wait for spring. Yes. It has been some winter for snowfall. And as someone who has tennis elbow and carpal tunnel from shoveling way too much, I hear ya.

However, why is everyone rushing the seasons? God did make four of them, right?

I love some seasons more than others but winter is number two behind fall as my favorite season and this year as in years past, I am sad to see it go.

There is something about the snow and the cold that make me feel more alive. The thought of bundling up with a warm pashmina, a cup of Prince of Wales tea and a good book makes me feel all fuzzy inside.

I am sad to see Winter go.

This winter, to keep my winter love in full force and effect, I purchased two items that I absolutely love and will bid a fond adieu to when I pack them away shortly.

The first is this hat from Eddie Bauer.

I cannot begin to tell you how warm this hat keeps me. There have been times where I have had to take it off because I have gotten so hot. But, then again. It could have been peri-menopause that my GYN keeps telling me I am far away from. $39.50 worth of toasty goodness and I look kinda cute in it.

Speaking of toasty, the second item is this 3/4 length down coat in "persimmon" that I purchased from Lord and Taylor.

It covers my boo-tay and is very warm. The collar covers my neck and head almost completely. It is by Gallery Portrait. Originally $190, it was 40% off. I had an additional 20% off coupon and a $50 gift card so it cost me around $40ish. Holla!

Ahhh, winter. I am so sad to see you go.

What do you say ladies? What are some of your favorite winter items that you will be sad to see go? Don't say your shovel.

I would've loved winter a little more with such a gorgeous coat like the one you have!! My fave winter accessories were my comfy cognac colored boots w/ a decent heel. I walked for hours at a time comfortably in them. And also my hair. i could wear it down without having swamp neck!

I will miss my Cole Haan chocolate brown snow boots. I love their burnt orange trim, and even how they make funny sounds against my pant legs as I walk around the office on snow days. :-)

You are definitely the first person I have heard about being sad to see winter go, it must be the Californian in me, but I am so happy to see the rain go!

But I will miss my tall books and my pashima's, i love how boots change an outfit completely!!

The coat is to-die-for! That color!

I live in Central California...so the weather is virtually the same all the time. I used to live in Southern California..same situation. I really do not know what it is like to have a real winter...so I should stop complaining anyway..we need this rain! But I just need to get the kids out side to run around too!
