30 for 30 Winter, day 9. Who you calling a wookie?

14 Feb

Ravens on a wire nuzzling overhead

There were wookie jokes made all day. I wonder why.

It’s finally raining in Northern California. While this might not mean much to those of you outside the state, it’s been a month since we’ve had any and unless we want our water to be rationed all summer, this is a good thing.

Of course it also means snow. Which means I finally get to take my beautiful new snowboard out this weekend. Am I excited? Heck yeah, I’m excited!

I managed not to capture my nordic leggings and brown boots while taking my picture this morning. I got distracted by two lovey ravens up on a wire overhead. The were being so sweet to each other. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen that before. Well, it was Valentine’s day.

In the last three days I designed and migrated my blog to another platform, wrote six posts, helped a friend with a design project and managed to celebrate Valentine’s by cooking dinner with my sweetie. If it seems like I’ve haven’t been around lately, you’re probably right. I miss seeing your faces, I’ll be back shortly.

Deets: Burgundy sweater dress/Marshall’s, faux fur vest/Urban Outfitters, belt/Anthropologie, necklace/gifted, hand-carved earrings/Chicago, woven bracelets/gifted, nordic leggings/Lulu’s, vegan brown suede boots/Munro.

    Oh, I’m loving the vest! The idea of belting it is genius. I just picked up my very first (faux) fur vest at Marshalls a few weeks ago on a clearance rack for all of $10. I don’t think I would have given it a second glance but I was reminded of Vahni’s wonderful style and it got me thinking that maybe I could try to rock it like her. As it turns out I’ve worn it once and got so many compliments. Plus I just felt terribly cool. Haha.

    You look fantastic. A very chic Chewbacca. For the record, I think we made our water quota late last year. So I’m good on no more rain for a while. Yes. I am complaining about the weather. Maintains my curmudgeon status quo.

    I think burgundy/wine is my top favorite color, and I love how you’ve combined slightly different shades of it in different textures, nicely contrasted with the rich brown fur.

    Loving the wookiee look. Can’t go wrong with a fur gilet.

    I’m a bit behind on your blog as it doesn’t seem to be coming through on Bloglovin (no idea why). Time to catch up now.

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
