I'm keeping my fingers crossed but this may be the very last wool free outfit post of the year. These photographs were taken a few days ago, before New York was transformed into a snow globe! Yesterday I was sewing away at work when I looked out the window to see snow falling in abundance. I've seen snow a handful of times but never before have I seen it falling from the sky. I spent the rest of the afternoon sneaking peeks over my shoulder at the delicate snow flakes nestling on the window sill, grinning like a five year old and listening to Christmas Carols on my Ipod.
Oli and I decided to celebrate this momentous occasion by going out for burgers, this was a great idea but with the nearby subways still out of action we spent many hours traipsing through the thick blanketed streets. I also spent quite a bit of time on the ground... I'm bracing myself for many public humiliations this winter.
Despite my wet buns and numb fingers it was a pretty magical night, to my dismay by this morning most of the snow had already melted. Maybe I still have a little while left before snow boots and furry hats become a part of everyday life after all.
