The Cold Ankle

Hope you all had a great weekend! We finally made it to Whidbey Island on Saturday with our friend’s Sarah and Eric to pick up our 1/4 of a grass-fed cow. Our cow lived a very nice life on the farm there with lots of land to roam, beautiful water views, and a family of 3 sisters to care for it, just as it should be. Get ready for lots of ground beef recipes to come! We also got some pastured eggs which I’m looking forward to enjoying for breakfasts this week. Saturday night we had Michael’s company holiday party which was fun, but I was running late so didn’t get any pictures. Sunday we drove down to Tacoma for a holiday concert to enjoy a performance by our favorite jazz singer and get in the Christmas spirit. Michael even let me stop by our storage unit on the way home to pick up the garland I put over our window. We don’t have a good spot to put up a tree, so the Space Needle shares their’s with us : )

I got the idea for today’s outfit off Pinterest, where else? – I was trying to figure out a way to remix my sweater dresses for blog purposes when I saw a picture of a girl wearing a blazer over her sweater dress – duh!

So you last saw this sweater dress here, today I added leggings instead of tights, my red blazer seen numerous times, and then I decided to try out my ankle boots instead of just shoes or tall boots. I have only worn these boots previously covered with boot cut jeans, but figured I might as well give them a shot to be fully exposed. I do think they give a little “edge” to the outfit. What do you think on the ankle boots worn this way, yay or nay?

Where on Whidbey do you get the beef? My parents live halfway between Coupeville and Oak Harbor.

I’m still researching good choices for grass-fed beef and 1/4 cow shares. I’ve been enjoying Whole Food’s grass-fed flap steak on the grill. Yummy!


It is called 3 Sisters Farm. That sounds yummy!
