Oh, the weather outside is frightful…

Well, it snowed in Boston yesterday. I say this with an ounce of foreboding as I leave today for my Christmas holiday and well, I’m a little worried. Almost every year I’ve been traveling for Christmas, we’ve had a blizzard in Boston and it’s always a bit of a nail-biter as to when or how I’ll get home. My first year in Houston, I literally caught the last flight out from NY to Boston on a layover. My second year, I was terrified I’d get stuck in Dallas. Last year, the snow thankfully delayed itself a day. And tomorrow? Well, tomorrow there’s a 60% chance of snow and I’m starting to wonder: is it me?

I mean, I love snow (now that I see it like 3 times a year and don’t have to shovel). It’s a lovely Christmas greeting. But it would be more wonderful if it hit on Wednesday.

Then there’s an added factor to the Christmas blizzard and that is the drive from the airport to my small So. Shore town. Normally it only takes about 45 minutes, but the last two blizzards it’s taken 3 hours. I’m pretty sure my father secretly (ok, not so secretly) dreads these  rides, because well, I’m a talker. And he’s got 3 uninterrupted hours of me babbling away in the car. Sounds fun doesn’t it?! Father-daughter bonding time is good for the soul. Huh Dad?

Outtake, this is the look you get when you stare at me while I’m taking my outfit pics:

    This is such a wonderful winter outfit! I love the light skirt with the dark tights… And the ruffled plaid just plain old rocks my socks.

    Love the plaid and leather together. It looks particularly edgy against the khaki skirt.
