Very exciting! We are going to New York City for Christmas! I’m sure my trip won’t be like Kevin’s (Home Alone 2), but I plan on standing in front of the lit up Rockefeller Christmas tree. The last time we were in NYC was in March (see below), and it was a tad chilly then. Given this time we are obvi going in Winter, I need to make sure my winter gear is established.
Now, we will be there in 7 weeks and it was extremely nice in Wisconsin the last few weeks. I know how Mother Nature works so I want to be prepared for any type of winter situation. Of course when the trip comes closer I won’t bring my huge snow boots if not needed, but I’m sure I will need them anyway.
You guys, I am just dyyyying to walk through Central Park in this weather. That is why I’m being so crazy to make sure I am winter ready so I can enjoy it and not freeze to death. And Christmas at Tiffany’s? EEK
I’m sure a lot of you are asking why I don’t already have extreme winter gear given that Wisconsin has extreme winters. Well, I can’t answer that. We have had some bad ones but I guess I used Hunter boots or just hibernated. This year, I want a good pair of Sorels or something. Give me the cutest hat and gloves…and the perfect jacket (because I just layer layer layer right now).
So, since I am not the only one experiencing winter around here, I thought it would be fun to share some of the items I am shopping for and maybe you’ll see some pieces you love too!
So I want a pair of boots that are going to keep me warm but not made for 20 inches of snow. I personally want numbers 5 and 6….so bad! I checked and Sorel will have some great deals for Cyber Monday!
I am so torn when it comes to a coat…or a jacket…or a parka. You see? I will have to buy one once the trip gets closer due to weather changes and such. I have a nice gray coat now but numbers 1 and 5 are wonderful!
I’m sorry but #2 is so funny!! I will be getting those regardless. And of course I had to pick out bordeaux ones.
I’m getting so excited for this trip!! Once I have all the things that will keep me warm, I can focus on outfits…and I’m sure that will take me forever!!
Yay Monday is over! Go pour yourself a glass of wine to celebrate. XX
