J. Crew Funnel Coat & Plaid

Today was the coldest day of the season in Miami and I took full advantage by wearing boots, a coat, and a scarf. I walked around the Coconut Grove Arts Festival for a few hours with friends. Honestly, I thought it was a bit of a ripoff because the same vendors are always at the South Miami arts festival which is FREE whereas this festival had a $10 entry fee. However, there was a lot more food at this festival along with beer so this festival wins for the culinary aspect. It was freezing in the shade, but in the sun I was hot with the jacket. I'm a little nervous that the jacket won't be warm enough for the cold weather in Chicago when I go visit my boyfriend. What did you do this Presidents Day weekend?
I also wanted to thank everyone for the primer suggestions in one of my recent posts. I ended up ordering the Monistat Chafing Gel off Amazon because it was one of the cheapest options and The Internet (and you all) says it is a dupe for the Smashbox primer. I've never felt better about my makeup and I'm almost excited to do it every day since I discovered how well primer works!
