I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend (or just a relaxing one if the holidays aren't your thing)! We went to Houston to hang with Dago's family and kept it all very low-key (except for an unexpected carousel ride at the mall -- so fun!). Today we're headed to my parents' house just north of Austin for jelly donuts to celebrate Chanukah in pure fried-food fashion.

The outfit I'm wearing in these photos is actually what I wore for Thanksgiving! Of course, it happened to be in the 80s that day, so I didn't wear the coat or hat, and had my sleeves rolled up all day. Then, the day that we shot these photos, it was darn cold, but I was glad to finally wear my new favorite coat out. I don't know what the weather has been like where you are, but it's been fluctuating nearly fifty degrees every few days. I would be complaining more if I ever left the house and had to get dressed, but I'll be honest and say that I've been mostly wearing my favorite Zella leggings and an assortment of sweatshirts regardless of temperature.

I think I mentioned here recently that I wanted to give grey a try this season, starting with my cat purse and then my Old Navy pointed-Chelsea boots. Stumbling upon this coat seemed like fate, and I'm so glad it came home with me. I'm equally pleased at how well it pairs with cognac! I talk more about how this coat came to be in tomorrow's budget update, so stay tuned for that!

How are you handling the weather in your neck of the woods?
