With the holidays right around the corner (a.k.a. this week!), things have been busy around here….and I am sure it has been the same for all of you. There is a lot of preparing that goes into holidays and when I start to make a to-do list in my head, I can get a little overwhelmed. Add to that the super cold temperatures we have been having and I just want to curl up and hibernate. You see, I keep my thermostat set at 74 degrees and I want to wear a winter coat out if it is below 60. If you are from the north then I feel for you because I just couldn’t even.
This weekend was one of those cold ones where I was fretting about a to-do list when I decided to take break from my head and just get outside. I didn’t think about putting together a cute outfit and honestly, I didn’t think about anything else either. My kids absolutely LOVE playing in fall leaves, so we went spent a great amount of time doing that this weekend. When I opened up the coat closet, I saw this Avalanche thermal jacket and knew immediately that’s what I needed for playing in leaves. This jacket is great because it is warm and light and breathable all at the same time. It is wonderful. Initially I was wearing flats with this cozy outfit, but I quickly changed into these rain boots when I noticed that a lot of the leaves were wet. Who says it has to be raining for rain boots?
