Cleaning Up!

Happy New Year!  Brand new 2016 is a time to get organized.

  
Bid adieu to the Christmas decorations and while I’m at it, get rid of a few pieces in the wardrobe.

  
Replace white t-shirts, any sweaters with mega-balls or the moths have nibbled on, distressed jeans that are more holes than denim (see photo) and anything else that is deemed stale, icky or bleuch.

  
The wintry weather is the perfect time to burrow indoors and get the annual closet purge done!  

  

O.W.O. Weather Radar

O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) all about keeping warm but not too warm!

Vortex Schmortex.  Weather radar had predicted a freezing cold weekend and didn’t deliver.  reversecommuter was not disappointed, although running around prepping my little princess’ birthday party (complete with photo booth props that I clearly had to test drive!) kept me so busy I barely noticed the weather!

Shearling, fur and denim made for a perfect weekend outfit.  Layering a long sleeve t-shirt with a boyfriend cut sweater under a cropped jacket can carry you through the day.  J Crew has some great boyfriend sweaters at budget friendly prices – did you know that their cashmere sweaters are made with the same wool as Loro Piana?  Psst – 25% off the regular price today with the code “SHOPNOW”.

 

Shearling in July?

See what happens when reversecommuter is stuck in the beach house for one itty bitty rainy afternoon?

Longing for shearling jackets overwhelms me and a hunting I did go!

Acne’s oversized shearling is just about the dreamiest recreation of the aviation classic for Fall 2014.

But it is a RIDICULOUSLY close tie with Chloe’s reverse able blanket shearling – um,  shaddup!  How luxurious would a polar vortex be with one of those sweet babies wrapped all over you?!?!?!   And I will happily sign up for a pair of those yummaroooo clompy booties too!

Not to worry, sunset this evening offered up a cotton candy kaleidoscope of pinks and blues, bikinis and beach days in reversecommuter’s very near future!

Funny how fast those two days fly by!

Saturday morning was my last long training run before the Boston Marathon (just one little tiny month away!!!!).  It is an amazing experience training on the Marathon route with hundreds of other runners, you see some incredibly inspiring individuals, are greeted with a ton of happy smiles (despite the miles), and on occasion even get a high five!    Boston Strong INDEED!

Still chilly in Boston so reversecommuter’s shearling is still getting used.  Rumor has it there is yet ANOTHER snowstorm coming on Wednesday – so not in Vogue!
