BRRR!! Holy smokes it is so cold outside! I woke up this morning and the thermometer said it was 9 degrees outside..9! I am originally from Michigan so I know I am being a big wimp but it has been years since Jon and I have experienced a true winter and we are freezing! I mean, you know it's cold when even your puppy doesn't want to go outside. Ok, enough complaining. North Carolina got snow this weekend! We were so excited to see that pretty white stuff again! I pulled out my winter gear on Friday and wanted to share my favorite winter jacket. I have had this North Face Metropolis Down Jacket since the end of college and it is still going strong (love this one and this one too). This jacket is the warmest one I have ever owned and so comfortable. I know it is a little steep in price but trust me when I say that you will be wearing this jacket for years to come. I threw on this blanket scarf (love this one too) and this head band (love this hat and this hat too), these leather boots (this pair is on sale!!), and these skinny jeans and I was warm and ready for our anniversary dinner!
