First Freeze

We are having our first of two family thanksgivings today and I have been preparing for this all year. Like runners prepare for marathons, I prepare for Thanksgiving. My training obviously does not include physical activity. But I must say, I am very prepared. 
We had our first freeze over the weekend, as we are late bloomers here in Texas. I was more than happy to pop open my coat closet door and pull this pink number on. Or purple. I can’t tell — I think it’s lilac and the other two people I asked think it’s pink. Either way it’s fabulous. I’ve long been a fan of a colorful coat. I think that they have just as much say in my winter wardrobe as the neutrals ones. Because when it’s dead of winter and everything is grey, at least your coat is pink. Or purple. Still out on the jury for that one.

      It is! Now I’m in Texas, so I don’t have to deal with sub-zero temperatures in the deep winter but for our below freezing weather, it will be great. 🙂

    Definitely lavender/lilac on my screen, but whatever color it is it’s a very pretty coat. Love the whole outfit especially the gorgeous deep purple heels. Happy first Thanksgiving!
