The first snowfall of the season hit NYC this morning. It was just a few flurries, but it completely changed my mood. I was already late to work because of signal problems on the D train, and then was shoved by some rude tourists yielding over-sized cameras and Macy’s bags. The 5 person family was blocking the exit of the train but still managed to shove me even though I was behind them (seriously?!). But then, I emerged from the underground hell that is the NYC subway system and saw the tiniest, perfect snowflake land on my sleeve and melt away. It was so lovely and romantic, and I remembered how cute my weekend had been, and all of the annoying thoughts and anger of the morning just disappeared. As much as I say I hate the cold and the shoppers and tourists, I really don’t. NYC is just so romantic and beautiful during the holidays, and the lovely little moments really make up for all of the annoying ones.
With the first snow of the season, all I can think about is building snowmen, making snow angels, and having snowball fights, even though I’m in my 20’s. Of course, that also means getting myself winter ready with a brand new pair of gloves. I’m really liking the following two pairs off of Anthropologie.
I’m really digging the understated leopard print on these gloves.Â It’s just enough leopard to be interesting without dominating your entire outfit. Plus, they look super cozy, like gloves I wore as a child.
The perforated bows on this pair are so cute. They’re pretty and yet still durable enough to withstand massive snowball making and sledding.
I used to be a fan of leather gloves, but this winter I’m looking for a pair that can easily fit into my pockets and can handle snowball fights and the like. Ok, so I probably won’t end up having any snowball fights, but you never know, it’s on my to-do list, and I always get that done. (Any of my friend’s reading this and snickering, keep your comments to yourselves. My to-do lists get done..eventually.)
