I'm a winter baby. I'm a Canadian. I'm a part-time unicorn. (the latter may be somewhat of an exaggeration...) Sounds like a recipe for a WINTER LUVUHH (lover), RIGHT?! Actually, contrary to stereotypes, Winter makes me want to vomit sunshine and inhale blue skies. Yes, Winter, that's right. I ain't a fan.

However - yes, that all important HOWEVER makes its appearance - I was ridiculously excited when I awoke to a blanket of sparkles! The first snow fall is always, always the most magical. Especially when the weather has been freezing for years (okay days) and snowless. For all of those who aren't lucky enough to live in igloos and ride to school on polar bears, here's some winter-y photos for your enjoyment!

Evidently, the sibling and I dorked out and took self-timers in our winter gear. This a real testament to our, uh, awesomeness?

I'm extremely aware that I'll be cursing the snow in, say, a day when my feet are inundated with wetness and my tights clash with my jacket. But for now, I'm thanking Mother Nature for her magic that falls from the sky (yes, I'm also aware that there's a science behind this "magic" but that is precisely why I dropped science. I happen to like magic)...

Here's to a sparkly winter, vintage layers and lots of hot coco! (Also, good marks on my midterms, but that will go in brackets to make me feel better for not studying yet. at all. ah ah ahh, freak out, think winter, yay.)

I absolutely love this season! Santa was at the mall and I was thisclose to getting a picture with him (THEY'RE FREE) but I refrained my inner-child and merely stared and smiled at all the ecstatic children like the creeper I am (not. that didn't happen...). Also, the sibling and I set up the tree on Saturday. It's fairly heinous. I don't think I'll post pictures. Let's just say sibling wanted "modern" and I wanted "traditional." We decided to compromise. Compromises aren't always the best solution. But whatever, it has heart. (And my rubber Santa toy as the star, YES.)

What are your plans for the holidays?
Distract me with family traditions and OTHER FUN JAZZ so I have some hardy reading to do for procrastination.

cuties!!! I freaking hate snow xD

K. said...

Looks like there's just the perfect amount of snow in your town. Here by us, it's snowing non-stop and we're drowning in this white stuff. If anyone's interested, we will gladly send some of our snow to you. Plese, just take it! Anyway, no special plans for holidays, a pretty usual christmas dinner, that will keep us full 'til new year.

Vanessa said...

These pics brought a huge smile to my face. You and your sister are darling and you remind me of me and my sister, which makes me happy and makes me miss her. Boo (She's at college!) I adore the matching big flouncy hairbows/headbands. Adorbs!

Kenziefaith said...

These pictures are so so fun! I love both of your outfits. Super cute!!

Sarah said...

You and your sisters outfits really bring out the other! Lalala snow. I'd like to say I'm glad I don't live in Canada because I hate snow, but sadly (and happily) I'm your friendly Northern US neighbor...

and lalalalala holidays! I'm Jewish so I'm celebrating Hanukkah in like 3 DAYS! :D

LyddieGal said...

you and sibling both look adorable, and look to be enjoying the fresh snow.

i too am a bit of a winter hater, but even the most hardened of hearts can't deny the beauty of the first snow.

Ali said...

YOU BOTH LOOK SO AWESOME AND I WANT YOUR SNOW. GIVE. Red coat love. Camel color coat love.

I like the cold only because I can wear all my cute colored tights and and jackets and coats and that's fun. Layering is fun. But sometimes it can be evil. But worth it.

kyki said...

Winter, as a season overall, is fairly horrible in Canada. However, it gives us an excuse to dress up in cute little coats and sweaters, drink hot chocolate, and cuddle with cute boys, so I guess I can bear it. ;)

You two look so adorbz in your outfits! Ahhh! I'm so jealous. I haven't a coat as awesome as that. :(

Christmas should be fun, I finally get to spend it with my family because everyone always beats me to getting the day off! But I got it this time, I'll be in California - we dont get snow there but I dont think I would be able to stand it, I'm a big weenie for the cold

roxanne said...

this is a christmas card if i ever saw one - you should totally make that happen, with cheesy '80s script preferably. your coats are too cute. TOO. CUTE.

jen said...

OMG your jacket is so cute!

unlike you, i'm a summer baby, but i love the colder seasons for some reason. maybe it's because i don't sweat as much haha.

mica said...

looks fun.snow fell in london too its magical.thanks for the sweet comment and maybe you'd like to follow x

Kym said...

i agree! the first snowfall is always magical.... then several hours later you have to shovel it out of your driveway and it turns into slush and turns black because of the cars.. and while you're shoveling snow cars drive by causing snow to be sprayed on you... dirty snow might i add. hahaha! way to be a downer eh?? ;P but i do love the first snowfall! you guys look so cute in your winter getups (complete with hair band) love it!

michelle_ said...

i always get jealous when there's snow in other blogger's worlds (ehem.. YOU..) the weather doesnt even come close to yours lexy ! we're like 38 celcius all year round (maybe 28 when it rains..) i never have the opportunity to wear thick coats and tights out... and it kinda sucksss..

anyway, color clashes always look good on you ! so no worries there :D and i hope ur legs dont freeze too much after the self timer shots..

Angelica Ng said...

You two look so cute! Loving both your coats. I'm ready for the christmas spirit! I'm just going to enjoy my holidays.

Awww. So jealous. I wish it'll snow in Australia. All I get is rain or the hot sun. And really I hate all of the seasons. But I just wish'd It'll snow, I adore the snow.
