:: Highs in the Sixties Style ::

Many, many moons ago, I wanted to be a meteorologist. I’ve always been fascinated by weather, but that’s a typical Oklahoman for you. It wasn’t until I took a Severe and Unsual Weather course in college that I realized my interest in weather would just have to stay that – an interest.

Shockingly – becoming a meteorologist involved a significant amount of math to understand the science, and that was before the big STEM push for girls. So, while weather makes for excellent small talk, I often bring it up because I am just completely amazed at the way it works – particularly in this part of the country.

This outfit is a bit of a throwback to our Napa days (my favorite days ever), but it could easily have been worn here in Dallas when we reached a high of seventy degrees on Thursday. Yet – it snowed on Sunday night.

I like my weather like I like my outfits – unpredictable!

:: Sweater Weather ::

Oklahoma got a snow day – Dallas was just flat-out cold.

We spent (semi-snowy) Sunday recovering from being wedding weekend warriors (think that brings us to lucky number seven this year) and catching up on work. Taylor and I argue over who has the better neighborhood constantly, but Sunday he brought his A game.

Less than a block away, he located the most incredible coffee/wine shop which felt like my little piece of Oklahoma in the middle of Dallas. We walked in and it was perfect. Warm air hit my face and a sea of comfortable couches filled my eyes. The latte was incredible, the football game was playing (silently!!!), and I was in heaven. Plus, any barista who can make latte designs will keep my business.

While it was freezing (literally) out, this sweater practically acted as a coat! In our home, we didn’t wear coats growing up. When you’re heading to a mall, the last thing you want to do is lug around a big coat. So we either required our driver to drop us off (that’s what dads are for) or ran from the car to the door.

If you’ve seen me run, take a moment to soak that image in. If you haven’t, click here.
