Hello, folks! Winter is here, unmistaken, full-fledged, one hundred percent. This past Sunday, we had our first significant snow/ice rain fall, caused the Chinese school to cancel (Hurray! said the farther and the son), and today, it supposed to snow a few inches, which will cause school closing (Oh no, says the farther). While hot coco and soup are in order, a lot of people find ways to escape winter in the city. From what I have heard of friends’ winter break plans, the majority opted to go ski, and some, okay, maybe just us, are flying south. The best vacation, according to yours truly, is extremely low cost, energy efficient and environment friendly, that is stay in or better yet, stay in bed!
It is impossible to stay in bed when you have young kids, they can, you can’t . ;D With the spouse, you might be able to get away with it by saying “Honey, I am feeling a bit under the weather”, you get to stay in the comfort of your bed and catching up with Netflix. With the kids, however, not gonna happen. They come in, put their icy little hands on your face while you are still asleep and then jump on your bed until you surrender and get out.
Enough about the kids and let’s get on with the day. 🙂 My theme today is flare: bell sleeves and bell bottoms. The leather jacket is a classic motorcycle jacket style with slightly longer and subtly flared sleeves. The particular style has been around and in style for many seasons, only this year, I fell in love with the deep red and decided to take the plunge when the sale started. The velvet bottoms, on the other hand, is exaggerated, reflecting well its style name “Martini”. Combination of the two is, well, you see for yourself:
