Twilight Knits

I spent most of my day yesterday hanging out with my parents at the hospital, and also Christmas shopping with my mom. Since I was pretty busy during the morning/afternoon I had to take photos at the tail-end of the afternoon when the sun had disappeared, and the snow filled clouds were ushering in nightfall.


Knit headband: Urban Outfitters
Wool jacket: Banana Republic
Wool cardigan: Eddie Bauer
Jeggings: Levi's
Knee-high socks: Target
Boots: Uggs (purchased in 2005)


Yesterday it was absolutely freezing. I'm pretty sure it didn't get any warmer than 14 degrees during the day! It was still a beautiful day though, and the snow covered trees left me in awe time and time again.


Earlier in the day my mom purchased this cardigan for me as a Christmas present (when you're away from home and don't have time to shop alone, it's just easier to shop together and pick out something you really like). I was supposed to wait, and let my mom wrap it and put it under the tree, but I just couldn't (too cute to wait). It's made out of wool and cashmere, and is sooo cozy!


Since it was getting dark I was having a little trouble taking photos. My camera simply did not want to focus on me, and thought the background was a nice, sharper shot. This made for extra time spent trying to get in focus shots, and multiple people asking me what I was doing, and if I wanted them to take a photo of me (I'm pretty sure a group of people were laughing at me as they passed by).


This is my favorite photo of the evening though my nose is a little red from the cold.




Today I'm hoping to go for a nice walk through Vail Village, and to enjoy the snow flurries that we are having here. I also think a nice warm drink from Starbucks is in order. I've been drinking coffee from the hospital cafeteria since I've been here, so I think I'm do for a nice hot drink from an actual barista.



The snow makes me feel nostalgic, kind of how I feel when listening to Beneath the Medicine Tree by Copeland, or Set Yourself on Fire by Stars.

How does the snow make you feel? Nostalgic, or just miserable?
