There isn’t much exciting news on the forefront in my life at the moment. But we did find out Tom’s work is going on a 2 month hiatus for Christmas holidays while they transition in to another season of filming. This completely sucks and is exactly why I started Christmas shopping in May. I don’t know if we have ever had a Christmas where money wasn’t an issue.

I did get my interim coat this week. I was looking for an oversized jacket in grey or camel colour that I could easily layer under and would be warmer than my leather jacket but not a parka. I looked at the Zara website since they usually have things in my price range and saw one that I liked for $89. Since we have a large Zara in the mall next door I checked the online inventory so I could go over and try it on, and they had a few left in inventory in my size. Merle and I went over when we were waiting for Roo to finish her Robotics class. She calls this time “mommy and Merley time” because we usually mall walk while she is in the class and get Pinkberry because when Roo is with us she won’t let us go since she has boycotted them. There was a gaming store she liked there before, it closed and Pinkberry took over the location and she hasn’t forgiven them yet 😉 Anyway, I tried on two coats of similar styles but picked this one because it had large pockets.

Tom calls the jacket my “Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club” jacket. I’m not sure if he means that’s a good thing but since I love that movie and Bender I’ll take it that way 😉

How is everyone holding up this week?

  1. Love outfit # 4, Sara. I think it’s the Converses that make me partial to it. Also really like your new coat. Tom cracks me up with his TBC reference.

    I’m still waiting for cool weather so that I can wear my new long coat. Today the high is supposed to be 77, sigh.

    • P.S. How did Merle end up with such uber cool style at such a young age? Mom influence?

      • Ha! She’s pretty particular with what she likes and doesn’t so I let her have at it. She generally likes darker colours (except yellow, yellow is her favourite) and things with cats on them. She does tend to want things if it is similar to something I have. I’m sure she will grow out of that sooner than later though 😉
