Sequins and Stripes


I have fallen in love–with this sweater {sorry, Andrew}.  The moment I laid my eyes on it, I snatched it up.  I knew the pretty little sequins on the elbows would make me feel like a new woman.  And it did.  It definitely did.

Have I mentioned my obsession with these rain boots? I have quite the collection {about 4 rain boots…yikes}.  What made me love these so much was not just the pretty red color, but the fact that they are “packable,” which means they are super lightweight compared to my other Hunter boots AND they can be folded up.  SCORE.  Totally worth the splurge.

Also, a little old news, but I thought it was funny: Andrew and I unknowingly bought each other the exact same Christmas gift {the special edition Harry Potter series–yes, we still love Harry}.  We got a little suspicious when we put the two wrapped gifts next to each other and they were the exact same weight and size.  It’s a good thing we got each other a few other gifts that were different though.  {One of my gifts for him was the J.Crew Weekender Bag…it’s THE perfect size!} I’m not going to lie, my gifts were pretty good and creative for him this year {and vice versa obviously}.  I don’t know how I’m going to top it next Christmas.  I’ll have to start planning…right now.
