November Haul + Jack 'n' Jill Burgers

I wouldn't have shopped if it weren't for the $20 credit I have with LOFT, which led me to visit the store and end up buying a few items. I'm actually wearing this LOFT Petite Stained Glass Lace Cami in my previous post. The only other items I purchased last month was a pair of Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra Se' Sneakers, which look great and are super comfortable but I have to say that I tried on the new Adidas Ultraboost Uncaged Sneakers  and they are even more comfortable! I've been eyeing this pair in grey but they unfortunately don't make them in size 5. :(

The only thing I tried on in store was this sweater dress, which I really liked (disregard my skinny jeans underneath and this was when I was still blonde last month).

Here's a recipe for really delicious burgers you can make any time without a grill - they're A's favorite!

Here's my last OOTD with blonde hair! Since my roots were growing in, I decided to try a mauve/rose color to blend in better with my darker roots and hair that will grow out.

Warm Winter Coats - Parajumpers and Canada Goose

After such a cold winter last year, I've come to realize that my warmest coats aren't very warm at all. What I wore all winter last year when it was coldest was my Burberry Brit Bosworth Quilted Patchwork Coat and Moncler Ariette Fur-Trim Puffer Coat, which definitely weren't warm enough. So I decided to look for a toastier coat this winter, which A graciously offered to buy for my Christmas present. :)

I first became aware of the Parajumpers brand when I visited the Paragon Sports store a few years ago so I knew they would be a good brand for a warm winter coat aside from the ubiquitous Canada Goose, which I was also considering. I remember trying on the girl's Canada Goose Brittania a while ago, which didn't fit quite right and so was much more interested in seeing how Parajumpers fit. I took a quick trip to Bloomingdale's at 59th Street to try the Parajumpers Long Bear Coat I've been eyeing and am very glad I did because the store has such a great select…
