At the end of January. In DC. Logically, this was also the day of the "Dress Up a Coat" challenge.
Because it was so gorgeous out, Nat (baby) & I decided to walk the 2.5 miles to the library, from where Dan (husband/photographer) would retrieve us in the car after he returned from work. I find out while we are at the library that something came up and D had to stay late at work (not his fault). The light is now starting to wane and I know that I won't see him before it's well into evening.
I'm AT the library. Having not taken outfit pictures. And not having time to walk home before the light faded.
So. I took outfit pictures. On self-timer, with the camera awkwardly propped on a brick wall, in public, with a wool coat on in 60+ degree weather. If in these pictures I look like I'm trying not to notice that there's a camera awkwardly propped on a brick wall taking self-timered pictures of me in a wool coat when it's 60+ outside, well, you'd be spot on.
(Did I really just use a hashtag in a blog post? Who am I?)
On a less awkward note, this pink herringbone coat. I love it dearly. I got it before my senior year of college and was pretty much known as That One Pink Coat Girl in a land of black peacoats. I wore it like crazy for a couple of years and then all but retired it in favor of my even-more-conservative yellow plaid one. Pretty sure this one is going to make a comeback if winter ever decides to hit this year.
