First Snow

- Outfits

first snow in my floppy hat

Yesterday, Minne-snow-ta had its first snowfall… of 5 to 8 inches! My boyfriend’s work closed down around 2 p.m. and since we are carpooling right now, I went home for the day as well. The roads were slick, but luckily with our recent move, we are super close to work and it didn’t take long to get home. I was so excited to spend sometime outside in the snow and enjoy the beauty of a fresh snowfall. This purplish-red wool-blend floppy hat is just another hat to add to my collection of fall/winter hats. I have been loving them lately (see here and here) and think this bright color will be nice when I’m usually picking out black, white and other neutral colors during the winter. Along with a white collarless blouse, open face cardigan and leggings, this outfit is warm, yet stylish for a snow day. But I must mention, the color of this hat reminds me a little bit of Barney so I should probably avoid wearing it with shades of green haha!

Also, I had to take advantage of taking photos yesterday because let’s be honest, I live in a dog-friendly apartment building aka the snow will be yellow everywhere in a few days lol!

    I love the hat. The color is so vibrant and pretty and really pops against the snow! I wish I was more excited about this weather. There is definitely something magical about the first snow, but I just wish it had waited a bit longer to appear!

    I can’t believe you are already getting snow and so much of it!! I also can’t believe how you manage to look so chic and calm while out there in it, LOL. I love this hat on you. Such a great color.

    I can’t believe your first snow was so big! It’s sleeted and flurried here in KC last night and it was a painful reminder that fall is gone and winter is coming…fast! No more loafers for me 🙁 haha glad you got to enjoy the fresh powder 🙂

    I went home early yesterday too and then the snow more or less stopped by me! I ended up taking advantage though and baked some goodies and enjoyed some time with my son! I love your pretty hat!

    That hat is gorgeous, I love the color! I can’t believe it’s snowing there already! But your weather is headed in our direction I think. Hopefully the snow goes away by the time it reaches the east coast!

    That hat is so cute! And I love your jacket!!
    We might have some snow tonight, but just flurries, haha. I don’t usually like snow to come before december, just because it makes it feel like Christmas. Although 2 years ago we had a huge blizzard for Halloween, haha

    Before reading your post when I saw the photos I was like is that snow lol? I cannot believe it. During the lunch hours here it is still warm enough to wear just a tee or light sweater, sometimes.

    You look adorable in the cranberry hat and I love the b+w geo-print cardi!
