(vintage sweater, aa size zipper pants)
i found this sweater on a thrifting trip for the store and didn't realize until i got home that it was only barely held together by a few safety pins. i know that most people would consider that a dealbreaker, but luckily that is my favorite kind of thrift store find so i was happy to adopt it as my own. and just in time because the weather in new hampshire last week was a million degrees colder than it's been in boston. i think that my southern heritage means that i will never get used to the winters up here. every year it comes back around and feels like a punch in the face. but this sweater was quite a hit over the weekend and i think everyone tried it on at least once (it looks best on leonard). and i have to say that braving the cold country was worth it because i got to have two thanksgiving dinners. one on thursday with the usual comfort foods and then another on saturday where leonard made a feast of pot roast, brussel sprouts, acorn squash, asparagus, and twice baked potatoes for his whole family. the only thing better than one thanksgiving is two of them!
