I’m soooo over winter. 

I’m sick of putting on snow boots and sleeping bag coats (cough puffer coats cough), remembering where I put my gloves, smashing my hair into a pom-pom hat (though I have a very cute collection going on), scraping ice/snow off my windows, and trying not to slip and fall on my way into work or the grocery store.

So please, please, please, Mother Nature (or that infamous groundhog whoever is really responsbile)! Bring on spring with its mild days, bounty of tulips, and sunshine.

But until then, you’ll find me over here in tights and sweaters (included this old sweater dress from Loft) and ankle boots….and likely buried under a mountain of fleece blankets.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Yes, it is Friday!
  • No, I will never cuff my jeans like this again (it just doesn’t do it for me).
  • Special shoutout to my Schmom for changing out the buttons on this coat. I love the way the black buttons really pop off the coat now!
  • Oh, and she made the sweater bow for me too (modeling it after this sweater from J.Crew). She’s the best…and I don’t tell her that enough! <3
  • This weekend, we’re staying in, because once again…it is FREEZING in Indiana. I’m determined to clean up my side of our bedroom (clothes everywhere), pick out paint for the master bathroom, and start/finish planning our Texas trip (cough-watch-out-for-an-email-Nicole-cough).

Another month, another Style Soulmate post…this time featuring Merritt Beck from The Style Scribe!

I loved this classic color combo outfit  from Merritt earlier this month (here), and I had just the right pieces to replicate it for a classy and professional winter look. So I pinned it…and then I spinned it!

I couldn’t help but add a pop of plaid and some red, because I can rarely handle a full-on-neutral outfit, but also because, I needed something to distract from any coffee spills I might have encountered on my white sweater. #practical

ps. I scored these Ferragamo flats for a ridiculously low price (cough under $70) from eBay. I plan on resole-ing them, but other than that…they’re in perfect condition. Thrifting/shopping eBay or Poshmark is my jam lately (especially when you’d never ever be able to afford the new version)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Yes, those are bugs on my coat. That I put there intentionally….and I love them! It’s the easiest way to spruce up your winter wool coat, when you’ve worn it for the 1,000th time!
  • It’s Friday. It might hit 60 degrees here today…in January. I’m getting my hair cut this afternoon. And I’m trying to convince The Husband that we need burgers again tonight. Positive thoughts today, people…and hugs all around.
  • And even though I said last week that La La Land was only pretty good...that hasn’t stopped me from listening to the soundtrack on Spotify (here) on super repeat. Love the original songs!
    • And for those of you wondering what “super repeat” is, it’s when you play something over and over and over again until you drive your husband crazy. It’s definitely that.
  • This weekend, we’re celebrating our niece’s second birthday! It’s hard to believe that she is already two, and I can’t wait to celebrate with her, Curious George, and The Husband’s family. Happy Birthday, S!

10 Things Tuesday (1.17.17)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I’m not certain that I can pull off a peplum tee, but this one seems so flirty and fun, and it comes in a ton of different color options!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Loving this ladylike look from Liz and her list of must-sees and must-dos in Charleston (a city I am hoping to visit in the next few years)!
  3. Striped sneakers that I most definitely need in my life!
  4. I love staying in Airbnbs (more here if you’re interested). We’ve used them on trips in the US and trips abroad, and minus one or two exceptions, I’d rather stay in an Airbnb than a hotel on most trips. We’ve booked two Airbnbs for our trip to Texas in February, and maybe someday, I’ll get my act together and blog about my Airbnb stays, but in the meantime, here are some of the most Instagrammable Airbnbs out there!
  5. The prettiest mixed polka dot print is riiiiiigggght here! Definitely adding this to my wishlist!
  6. I don’t speak French, and I certainly I don’t need another sweatshirt, but this French colors sweatshirt is sitting in my shopping cart right now. 
  7. Kids these days….are getting cooler and cooler. This 4-year-old has read over 1,000 books and got to be the Library of Congress’s first-ever Librarian for the Day! 
  8. I’m going to need this bike print top. Stat.
  9. These fudgy, brownie-like cookies look delicious and easy to make…which probably means you need to make them and share them with me! ;)
  10. A plaid brim baseball hat…for $25? Yes, please!
