Chicago Snow

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Every winter it snows in Chicago, but every time feels like the first. At the opening downpour of the season, we take a snow stroll around our neighborhood, reveling in the quiet that a fresh blanket of white brings. We make a pit stop at our local Starbucks before walking the few blocks to the beach, where we freeze our faces off while trying to take pictures of the place where so much of our summer is spent. It's a ritual I adore and coming home to a warm pot of tea in our Christmas condo makes it even sweeter.

Things are looking Christmas-y around the condo! 

Just GIF-ing Around.

Popping in with a GIF from our Christmas card outtakes, just because. 
Stay tuned to see which photo made the cut. 

Hope your holiday's have been happy so far! 

Nice to meet you, Radiant Orchid.

I'll always love emerald, but am making room in my life for Pantone's new color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Going to predict this purple-y mauve as THE mani color for spring 2014. 

Bonus: The enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health - raise your hand if you want more of that!

P.S. More Pantone love
