First Snow

When Daniel and I went to Denver a few weeks ago it snowed!! Being from Jersey (and him being from Vermont), we both grew up with snow every Winter, but haven't seen it in a few years due to living in FL & AZ. This was our first snow of the year. It was so magical to be able to experience it again...and then of course be able to get on a plane and not have to worry about shoveling (#amiright). 

Anyway, it was beautiful...and SO cold. Literally, about a 70 degree difference from what the weather was in Arizona. That being said, I ordered like 80 coats in preparation of the trip over a month ago, but as I currently write this post they STILL haven't shipped (UGH)-so I ended up buying this jacket last minute at Forever 21...and it's surprisingly warm, for a super great price. Couldn't pass it up!

In other news, Black Friday/Cyber Monday?! Has anyone scored any sweet deals (like my jacket)? Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. It's so hard to believe that you are stocking up on coats, while I am packing mine away for Summer!! I did score some pretty good Black Friday deals and picked myself up a new handbag (along with a few other things!!)

    1.'s funny though because I still feel like I don't even need a coat in Phoenix! I'm beginning to wonder if I'll just go all Winter long without needing one. Yay for black friday steals!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
