New Year

Here are just a few recent scenes and an outfit. On New Year's Eve we hiked to the top of a mountain and, to our surprise, found a hang glider ramp at the top, as well as a beautiful view. There was something symbolic about seeing this ramp starting at the top of a mountain and going off into nowhere.

Although I usually find vintage and second-hand coats, I wanted to find a nice coat to last for many seasons. My beloved vintage coats have gotten are a bit shabby! I fell in love with this black plaid one by Kling, which goes with just about everything in my wardrobe. I consider buying a coat a big investment, and shopped around a bit before choosing this one - it's been worn it almost every day since it arrived, and will certainly be useful since we're entering a cold snap.

The new year brings some major personal challenges that I don't feel quite equipped to write about yet, but if you're currently facing mountains that seem tremendously huge, my heart goes out to you.

Here's to 2015.

  2. What a beautiful coat and what beautiful photographs. What a lovely way to see the New Year in.

  3. I always love how your and your photos seem like something from the illustration of an old children's book- just classic and elegant and understated.

  4. Breathtaking photos, it looks like such a lovely area. Have a great new year and may it bring you all the best in luck!

  5. Stunning view, you can see for days! Chicago is so flat, I miss being able to climb a hill and feel like the world was spread out around me.
    I love that coat. It's so classic, a bit 60s, but still really modern. Great choice.

  6. You new coat is just lovely, I love the shape of it. It looks just darling paired with your beret.
    What a beautiful way to see in the new year. I hope all of your plans fall into place!
