I awoke on Friday to the weather attempting to snow. Little snow flakes streaked toward the ground only to melt on impact. I heard on the news that they received a lot of snow at the local ski resort that day. The temperatures also are not getting out of the 30s (F) during the days. Yes, winter has arrived and very swiftly.
This has me pulling out warmer outfits and layering what clothing I own. I noticed I do not own many sweaters and have no idea why not since I am living in Washington state and am just a few hours drive away from the Canadian border. It is not like I am in a warm climate.
I think it may have partially to do with the fact I despise turtlenecks. Many years ago I had to wear turtleneck shirts/sweaters for a job in the winter time (the dress code was conservative) and always felt like the turtlenecks were choking me. I promptly gave them all to the Goodwill when I moved on from the job. I would never, willingly, wear a turtleneck and in the wintertime, a lot of the tighter fitting sweaters I see offered in the local stores are in that style.
Now, if I could find a sweater like this one:
Cowl Neck Sweater by Alexander Wang
I would be extremely happy. I like the overlong sleeves and the colour. I think I would be able to deal with the cowl neck as it is less constricting than a turtleneck. The trick is finding a similar version of this sweater that I can afford. I am going to keep my eye open for that.
Despite the cold weather, I am heading out to take photos this afternoon downtown. I just hope that the model shows up like planned she she keeps getting the time wrong and asking me when she is suppose to be there! Cross your fingers that all goes well for the photo shoot. Every little bit of good vibes sent my way helps.
