I grew up in San Antonio where there was really only one season. Ok, two seasons - hot and hotter. Shortly after college, I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan and that was quite the culture shock to say the least. Culture and weather. Summers in Michigan were my favorite - they are absolutely gorgeous and the temperature is perfect with little to no humidity. Winter, on the other hand, was pretty intense. It was great having all four seasons, though winter definitely dominated the other three.
St. Louis is the perfect happy medium between those two cities in terms of climates. I get all four seasons. I get days where it is excruciatingly hot, but I also get those perfect summer days. While I can't really handle 5-6 months of snow on the ground, I definitely still yearn for at least one good snow in the winter. We usually have one by the time the holidays roll around, but this season, we're now in the middle of January and I'm missing my first snow. There's just something so beautiful and serene about that fresh, untouched snow. Waking up and seeing a winter wonderland outside. I love it. I thought we were going to get a ton this weekend, it was actually snowing when I was wearing this outfit, but alas, none of it stuck. If you have snow, send some my way, mmkay?
