GET US DRESSED / BRING IT ON, WINTER

on huck: wellies, jeans zara (similar), luvmother sweater, plaid coat old navy (similar)

Not to alarm you or whatever but we haven't seen the upside of 40 degrees since the beginning of last week and I'm not expecting to see it again until half past the second coming, so. 

Pull out your woolens, kids, and hold onto your butts. This is it. 


This is also the first winter in Huck's life wherein a car is involved. Hooray! It has a heater! We're moving up in the world! It also has a stereo, too, but that up and stopped working just this morning, just in time for me to miss out on the all-Christmas radio station that started up finally, so I'm like--you know?? 

You know what else, I don't think having a car in the winter is all that and a bag of chips. Dressing for that dash from the front door to the car door and then surviving those excruciatingly arctic first five minutes before the heater starts pumping and then you're suddenly wearing too many layers is its own kind of torture. It's hard! I have to say, I almost prefer the forty-five layers of coats and walking quickly until your blood heats up method of winter survival. (Guys I miss having to walk.) (As do my skinny jeans.) (#idahospread)

So Huck + I are here today with Luvmother to remind you that wool is your best friend in these scenarios, because it maintains a temperature. It doesn't just heat up till kingdom come. This is especially good with kids, who have the worst temperature gauge of all of god's animals and would happily walk outside in a snowstorm in just their skivvies or else insist on wearing their coats fully buttoned after they've been home a few hours and you're watching their cheeks get redder and redder and you're like, KID. LET ME TAKE THAT OFF FOR YOU. Huck's been living in this gray sweater but we've also really loved this gray hoodie, this gorgeous sweater (elbow patches!), and these cozy sweats for nighttime.


Anyway, Huck has been wearing his Luvmother wool tees and sweaters near daily since the temperatures dipped. They're soft, they're lightweight, they wash + dry in the machine like a champ--they're really beautiful to look at, too. Like, I wish they made these in my size. 


I also like the idea of those old thermal union suits with the bum flaps that you wear while smoking a corn cob pipe and brewing moonshine in your bathtub? 

Idaho dreams.


The end.

  7. Your post is making me wish for some good machine-washable wool tees for myself. Also, just want to say that you look gorgeous. As someone who is also feeling the "spread" of a cross-country move (CA to NC) I encourage you to embrace all your loveliness. It is something I need to be doing myself.

  8. You look lovely Nat! And Huck is scrumptious too. These outfits are perfect, cozy and warm and just the right amount of coolness but not out-of-place in a small town. Nailed it! Glad to see you looking like your gorgeous self, Mama has her groove goin' on.

  12. I'm new to northern temperatures (just moved to Chicago from Florida) and I must say - I'm quickly learning that wool is my new best friend! Most of my closet is cotton (again, Florida) but I've started to collect wool socks, wool gloves, wool hats.
