Winter On The Plains

Here’s Jordana traversing the western plains of Williamsburg in her Navajo-print coat…

There’s something about winter that always has me thinking of the West…of camping outdoors in the snow with a roaring fire and heavy wool blankets and maybe a sled dog or wolf pup to keep me company…not that I’ve ever really done anything like this…but I think about it. There’s something about snow and wind and barren trees that always seems to bring out my inner Jeremiah Johnson. (And let’s face it – imagining winter this way is a heck of a lot more romantic than the reality of slogging through NYC’s piles of black/brown/yellow snow sludge and overflowing trash cans, no?) While girls can look great actually wearing Western and Navajo prints, my season-driven obsession with these motifs tends to be confined to collecting vintage blankets and quilts. As the best vintage blankets can be quite expensive, I also sometimes have my eye on new versions – but with new blankets I only like Pendleton. Their sold-out Yakima Camp Blanket in Granite looks awesome – totally searching for that and will def buy it if I find it! xx Mr. Newton
