I'm not sure if there is a season called pre-winter here in Alaska, but I think that is what we are experiencing. I will have to ask around. We have snow, cold temps, some trees still have fall colored leaves. I have not changed the tires on my car yet, so pre-winter. It's a thing.
In any event it is time to bust out the heavy layers. And then just keep them out until May.
For me, a coat is just icing on the cake to an outfit, since I plan on taking it off as soon as I can no longer see my breath! I bought this faux leather blazer at H&M awhile ago, but it was recently restocked online. And $40 you can't beat it. I love blazers! And for fall and winter they can always just take your outfit up a notch. For this outfit especially, where I am just wearing a t-shirt and jeans, the blazer really ties it all together.
On to more happenings in the hood, my mom is coming for a visit this week so we are on clean all the things mode. Mainly, the microwave. Not that our microwave is dirty all the time, but my mom is a legit crazy person about the microwave. Mom if you're reading this, Chris and I discussed just buying a brand spanking new one for you. Does anyone's mom have a cleaning quirk? I remember growing up, my mom would wipe the microwave down multiple times a day. And as my siblings and I grew up and got places of our own we always knew.....shit, moms coming, bleach the microwave!!! I can promise you on her way to the guest bedroom she will stop and open my microwave. Crazy lady!
And that's my story.
