Dress Well: Winter is Coming

I know you're probably getting tired of me talking about it...but baby, it's cold outside. Thankfully, I have my new J. Crew cocoon coat to keep me warm - I picked up this little beauty recently when J. Crew had a 25% off sale, and man, was it a good purchase. This is the first winter coat I've ever purchased for myself - for the last ten years I've been wearing a J. Crew coat that my mom bought me in 2003. Talk about longevity! I have no doubt I'll have this one just as long.

DSC_2645How was everyone's weekend? Ours was fantastic. We had a great time spending time with friends this weekend. I never cease to marvel at how far our social life has come in two years - two years ago we had no friends in San Francisco. Honestly, if we had wanted to hang out with people on the weekend, we couldn't have done it. This weekend we had social engagements on Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday. Right after we moved here, a woman that I worked with told me that after two years, I'd be completely settled in and have a great group of friends. I didn't believe her at the time, but you know what? She was exactly right.

Also, we had a SUPER strange experience yesterday afternoon - right before we showed up at our friend's apartment for a little lunch get-together, a few policeman shot and seriously wounded an armed suspect right in front of my friend's apartment. Like, RIGHT in front. Our friends were able to see the policemen when they fired on the suspect. Thankfully, the man who was shot was just out of eyeshot for them. Isn't that crazy? We had to duck under caution tape that marked off the crime scene in order to get to my friend's front door. Completely crazy, especially in our idyllic, safe haven of a neighborhood.

Hopefully your weekend didn't involve any crime scenes - enjoy your Monday!
