An early winter...

No, you are not hallucinating, there is actually snow in October.  For a week I had seen the ever so strange forecast for today, October 29th.  Snow in October?  It seemed like such a joke.  I do love snow, I really do, but I really wish our seasons would have gradually transitioned instead of a snow storm occurring even before the leaves have completely changed and fallen.
This outfit happens to consist of some of my favorite items in my wardrobe; the turban, jacket, dress, and shoes happen to be some of my favorite items at the moment, if not favorite items of all time.  I have been wearing this jacket a lot recently; I have never really worn much red before, but recently the color has been finding its way into my wardrobe.  The fabulous thing about this coat is that it has a removable liner to transition the coat for different temperatures (and even better... I got it at a rummage sale for $5!).  Of course in the snow I wore it with the liner (I might have frozen otherwise, hah).  With this snow coming so soon I haven't even had the opportunity to get winter hats and gloves out of storage, so the gloves I'm wearing here are definitely not fabulous, but at least kept my hands warm.
Hope all of you are enjoying this "fall" weather...especially those of you in the northeast.

You look so nice in this cold weather, sorry if it isn't as nice to be in it. The red of your coat just pops so well against the snow.
