Since Thanksgiving to Christmas is crazy for retail, B and I have started taking the week after off. It is heavenly.

This year we took 4 days and headed south to Fredericksburg, the town I’ve deemed as the Napa Valley of Texas. We drank wine, took naps, watched stupid shows on cable, and talked about nothing at all. It was amazing. Totally worth working our butts off through December.

I did not however realize how cold it was going to be in south Texas. Seems odd to need to pack warm things when heading south, right? And I was too excited to go on vacation to even look at the weather. So I pretty much just wore the same warm outfit over and over the whole time. Note to self: always check the weather before you pack. Also, capes are not for the bare of arms or silk covered arms, but I pulled through in the name of fashion. Frost bite is the new black.

    Haha always good to check the weather before heading off on a trip. Sounds like an amazing time anyways. I headed to the NC coast for a few days during New Years is was amazing.

  3. I love Fredericksburg. I was just passed through there while visiting Tow in October. It’s in Hill Country actually, which tends to be a little cooler than we are in DFW, weirdly enough. I ended up freezing on my uncle’s ranch wearing about 5 pathetically thin layers because I failed to check the weather too.
    And on a completely unrelated note, can we ever have a tour of your closet? I would love to see how you store all of your beautiful clothes!

    I’ve been contemplating a cape myself…since I live in Indiana I will definitely have to remember your advice. I will wear a sweater underneath! Your trip sounds amazing…I’ve always wanted to go to the Napa Valley, but maybe I should try Texas instead? :)
