Dressing for Winter

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 3:30 AM

Hello and Happy New Year! 

What a fun & crazy holiday season.  I hope you all had an awesome Christmas and New Year. 

Have you made any resolutions?
I tend to stay away from resolutions, but I have made some conscious choices and so far have stuck to them. 

'People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.' 

-Anton Chekhov

Isn't this the truth? 
By now, I am sure you all know my utter disdain for the winter months, but in my older age I have come to realize it is never going to change, so I must embrace. 
I love to stay busy and out of my house, I can not stand to hibernate. 
My friends and I have decided to fill our calendars with outings and dinners to get us out and through the doldrums of winter. 

Another thing that is key, is dressing appropriately! 
Sure, I would rather be in sundresses and sandals, even some light layers, but to get you through a Northeast winter you need a sensible clothing and definitely a puffer coat (or two).   
With so many adorable puffer coats, you can still look cute AND be warm.  

I am in love with this new NVLT coat! The high low hem, the dolman arms, and the thumb hole sleeves, are such great details. Also on my winter faves list, puffer scarfs like this one from 

coat / scarf you can order through Recess Boutique insta!  / leggings / sneakers / backpack 

Some more great options!

  18. Hey everyone!
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
