Alright, so here is where I start recalling the various things I did while my family was in town.. one day while my dad was at a conference my sister and Emily and I went to Coney Island...somehow almost all my photos from the beach disappeared off the computer and the camera, so these are it...there were a lot more of us together, but oh well I guess. It was a beautiful, breezy, clear day, and we had fun just strolling around for a while.

Even though it's march, it's still pretty chilly here, and we've been getting a lot of frigid wind lately, so I'm getting all I can out of my knits and layers...still bundling like a semi-maniac. I genuinely love all the articles I'm wearing though, so how can I complain? hat with kitty ears. yes. scarf from my sister, and cozy to boot. comfortable wool cardigan with wooden buttons. ok yeah I think snow makes more sense than sand. I can't believe it hasn't snowed here once! (why don't we say 'snown'?)

outfit deets:
hat: etsy
wool tunic: thrifted
cardigan: thrifted/ altered
wooden buttons: etsy! did you know you could find little cross sectioned buttons with tree rings still visible in them? well you caaaaaan...
riding trousers: gift
boots: thrifted
gloves: romwe


.....geeze, am I missing anything? what am I going to do wth myself in july when I only have to say ...'dress'...
