Winter

I'm back in San Francisco, if only for a mere month - and then I'm heading back to Massachusetts again. Cleaning out my grandmother's house turned out to be more overwhelming then I could have imagined. Basically, no matter how many times I think I've uncovered all that there is to be uncovered, I manage to find more stuff I can't let anyone else have. On the next trip I'm going to have to find myself a storage unit for all the furniture and boxes... maybe two? Shoot, could even be three... I have some photos to share of some of this trip's favorite finds...

The weather will hopefully be a teeny bit warmer in MA come March - but I'm sure Spring will still be taking it's merry little time to show up - most likely my suitcase will have the same things that I brought in January....

The very best winter socks I've ever owned. Picked up at Department 17, a new men's shop that's a close walk from my apartment. I seriously wore these socks every day without washing them for 2 weeks. I guess that's probably gross, but I couldn't bear to take them off my feet, which are habitually cold - bad circulation...

These shearling lined Bean Boots I picked up at the L.L. Bean outlet store were a life saver. I have a pair of Sorels that are perfect for snow storms - but on days when the snow has been shoveled and you're just running out to the car - they're perfect. Also pretty nice duo with those Woolrich socks.

This sweater - one of the great loves of my life. Found in my grandmother's house when I was in high school. It has a nice floppy collar and pockets with the nicest wooden buttons (which have mostly fallen off at this point). It's acrylic, which normally I try to stay away from - but it's so thick and soft and machine washable and I don't even mind.

This 70s plaid flannel shirt from La Meow Vintage was on my back for 3 days straight, including sleeps too. So soft/warm.

A St. James Shirt which is perfect for layering with warm undershirts, a red scarf I knitted a few months back, and mittens from J.Crew I might have demolished while attempting to shovel my parent's roof, erh and that day my mom and I were cleaning out my grandmother's attic and there was no oil in the boiler...

Grandmother's houses are full of hidden (and not so hidden) treasures, aren't they? Love that cream sweater with the floppy collar and that amazing little plaid shirt you're living in. The snow, too, is beautiful to see in photos.

Your winter weather clothes look like they're way cuter than mine. I just moved from San Francisco to Cambridge, MA, and am adjusting to "real" winter, but it must be hard going back and forth all the time! I could use some of that SF sunshine (and coffee!) right about now, though. When does spring usually show up around here, anyway?

Such a lovely sweater. I'll never tire of a cozy flannel shirt and cardigan, especially living and loving it up in Montreal!

glad you like the flannel. I just got back from Boxborough MA, my boyfriend was on a business trip. I fell in love with it, I had never been out East before.
