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

  1. This is not a drill…Target has gingham sneakers here! WANT.
  2. Blogger love of the week: Love this classic look from Rachel…and her glasses AND all her color “no-nos”. ;)
  3. This colorblocked tote might be my new favorite bag for spring!
  4. 20 of the most stunning drone photos taken in 2016! Some of these are downright gorgeous!
  5. Old Navy’s spring collection is looking like a direct copy of J.Crew (though WAY more affordable option), especially this outfit, which I want to wear immediately!
  6. This might be the prettiest top out there, thanks to the mix of polka dots and paisley…oh and my favorite color combination ever! It also comes in a scarf here…which might have to find a way to me soon!
  7. 10 books to read before they are turned into movies this year!
  8. These sandals won’t work here currently, but I bet I’ll be wearing them into the ground come spring/summer! They also come in 4 great/versatile color options!
  9. The best things to score on sale in January…you know, in case you have to stock up!
  10.  This is not an over exaggeration….I want EVERYTHING from Boden’s spring catalog (here). Blues, reds, nautical themes, and beautiful prints? SIGN. ME. UP!

It’s hard to look fashionable when it is 16 degrees outside, and you just want to zip yourself into a sleeping bag and hop your way into work. Guilty.

But other times, you just can’t let winter win.

So in those situations, it’s time to pile on your most fashionable items and pull off your best winter luxury look. And that’s exactly what I did on this particular this day with my camel coat, faux fur stole/scarf, and cozy black earmuffs.

Katie: 1. Winter: 0.*

*Okay, this might be a bit skewed, but we’re going with it.

Today’s highlights:

  • Has this week been the weirdest week for anyone else? I wasn’t actually convinced it was Friday…until I double checked my phone. I’ll take it, especially since this is my normal Friday off!
  • It is beyond FREEZING here in Indianapolis, so I’m spending most of the day curled up drinking coffee, snuggling under blankets, and obsessively playing this game (Stardew Valley for anyone interested) that my brother got me hooked on.
  • In sadder news, my great-grandmother passed away on Monday. We all knew it was coming eventually, as she was 97(!), but that doesn’t make it any less sad. She was a classy, sassy lady, and a huge Indiana sports fan. I’ll be wearing pearls this weekend and watching football (even though our dear Colts aren’t in the playoffs) in honor of her. Be sure to give your loved ones an extra hug today for me!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

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

  1. This striped cardi coat might be the BEST piece that Old Navy has ever put out. So chic and perfect for layered looks now and in spring!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Love this wintery-chic look from Sarah (and all of her non-traditional traditions)!
  3. Navy trench coat of my dreams! It’s a little early, but can you blame me? ;)
  4. Athleisure was a word of the year for 2016, and I don’t see the trend stopping in 2017, so get a jump on how you can make it work for your own life (here). 
  5. You better believe that I will be buying this scallop hem skirt when the weather warms up! Pretty good price too, if you can grab it on sale!
  6. I don’t know if I have linked to this stripe peplum top before, but it is the perfect piece for the upcoming spring and summer seasons!
  7. 30 common shopping mistakes that we all make according to personal shoppers…trying to take these into the new year with me!
  8. These ankle boots have amazing review online, are on sale, available in most sizes, and come in two different colors…what more can you want?
  9. I’m really going to try to be more healthy in 2017 (me and my really creative New Year’s resolution, right), so I immediately pinned Liz’s 10 healthy recipes to help me get a good start on this goal!
  10. The Husband got me this weekender bag from Sole Society, and I love how much it holds and how expensive it looks!

Turtleneck Magic Trick

I’ve now found my new favorite trick for turning all my summer dresses into winter dresses.

You know, besides moving to Florida/California where ALL summer dresses are also winter dresses!

My trick (which saves you on moving costs) is a simple turtleneck under a sleeveless or t-shirt dress! Presto, change-o!

You can try a solid color (try black or navy first) or add in some extra fun with a striped option. It adds some warmth without adding a ton of bulk and extends your closet options! It’s like a magic trick for those of us who choose/are forced to live in winter climates.

Abracadabra TURTLENECK!
