It’s been snowing here in Denver, but it’s only October! It seems like fall came and went in a blink of an eye. An early snow storm ran through Colorado just at the start of the changing leaf colors, which made all the trees drop their leaves while still green. Tomorrow is Halloween, and we have about a foot of snow outside, and a SNOW DAY today. The storm started on Monday, and we got an early release yesterday from school. I snapped these pictures during lunch, right when we got the email that we could go home at noon. I was pretty excited at the prospect of a snow day brewery trip with co-workers and snapped these in a hurry so they’re a bit fuzzy!
I really liked this day’s outfit. I had pinned this picture long ago on Pinterest and finally got around to recreating it. I’ve had these items in my closet for a while now, so the new star of the show is a Uniqlo reversible bomber jacket. I saw it on a mannequin while in the shop this past weekend and spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to find it on the women’s floor. Turns out, it was a men’s item. I wear men’s clothes all the time, so I tried on the XS (I normally wear a small or medium at Uniqlo depending on the item), and into the shopping bag it went. I need another jacket like I need a hole in my head, but that day I bought two more because I’m a sucker without any self control. The jacket is reversible, y’all. It’s like a two for one! There is currently a women’s version as a puffer, but I preferred the colors and the bomber style of the men’s. I instantly felt like a super cool sailor man when I paired it with a beanie (later at the brewery) and stripes.
Normally I only post positive kid quotes, but today I’m getting real honest. “Don’t even give me attitude. I didn’t come to school for your attitude” was what a kid told me when I told him to get off Snapchat while in class. Yup. srsly.
