My family has always been a fake-tree kind of family. I don't even remember seeing Christmas Tree lots around town until a few years ago. And while my roommates and I also went with a fake tree, I can't help but love the idea of a real tree. Every time I drive by the tree lots I want to stop, just to wander through. I love the smell, taking in the unique beauty of each individual tree, and the lights that hang above- keeping the lot bright, long after the sun has set. There's also something about watching a car drive down the street with a tree tied tightly to the roof that is so quaint and nostalgic; as if it drove right out of my grandma's miniature Christmas Village. But since there won't be a real tree in my living room, once again, I couldn't help but visit a tree lot for some pictures on a warm December afternoon.
I recently bought this denim jacket from Madewell after having it in my online shopping cart for months and t's probably the most perfect denim jacket I've ever owned. It has pockets, just enough distressing, and a wash that is neither too dark nor too light. The only problem is that I wish I had bought it a little earlier in the year. While we will still have some warmer days here and there, for the most part, it is winter; which means I'll need something a bit warmer than a denim jacket. But any day that the temperature reaches 50°+, you better believe I'll be opting for this jacket rather than a wool coat.
