W&D Style: Blanket Coats
The last month has been busier than usual because my husband and I are making a BIG move this fall from Chicago to Amsterdam for Jon’s work. I’m excited for this new adventure in Europe, but packing up your entire life is definitely no easy task. I sold all my furniture, I have boxes of clothes I am giving away, and the more things I let go of coincidentally the lighter I feel. I’m thankful to have a chance for a fresh start.
Leaving behind the city I love and have called home for over ten years presents itself with mixed emotions, but I’m making the most out of my last month here in the windy city before embarking on a new journey with my best friend. The leaves are turning bright beautiful colors, there is a crisp chill in the air, and voila my favorite season has returned. I wait all year long for these 2 short months that bring us the most beautiful weather, and since I’m not ready to break out my winter coat, I love the poncho as an alternative option. Basically, it is the socially acceptable version of wearing what feels like a blanket outside, so I’m all for it. It is the perfect in-between a sweater and coat, to wear out for a stroll along the lakefront (which I plan on doing every single day until I move).
With all that said, if there are any of you living in the Netherlands I would love to hear any advice about living life in Amsterdam! Of course I’m excited, but every once and awhile I get nervous butterflies in my stomach because change involves some risk and faith, right?
