On the shores of the Salmon River

I was lucky enough to have my husband take these photos in his hometown of Pulaski,  NY. (Yeah, I where is that??) It is a small town situated in Northern New York off the shore of the Great lake, Ontario, where the Salmon river runs through. These pictures where taken in late November before the temperatures dropped and the lake effect hit. Now the town and river is blanketed in about a few feet of snow.

Remember I posted a picture of this skirt (on a J.Crew model) a couple of months ago well, I've gotten to wear it a bit and love it just as much.

I love this skirt!

I can't get away from wearing tights and boots all.the.time. And sometimes two pairs with the weather we have been having...

Skirt: J.Crew-thrifted
Jacket: Marc Jacobs via Marshalls
Shirt: Joe Fresh
Necklace: Ebay
Boots: TJ Maxx
