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)

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

  1. This striped raincoat is the perfect piece for my spring wardrobe. Want want want!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Can’t stop, won’t stop loving red, white, and blue outfits…or Daphne’s outfits for that matter. Especially loving this winter-to-spring transition outfit!
  3. This floral print fit-and-flare dress will be perfect for all those spring and summer weddings that are sure to be on your upcoming social calendar!
  4. My new favorite Instagram account is this one (here) featuring comics about about a girl and her boyfriend and ALL the adorable “real” things they do. The one where she steals all her boyfriend’s clothes…is basically a biography of my life! ;)
  5. Another statement necklace never hurt anyone…like this wooden bead option which will literally go with EVERYTHING!
  6. This combination of stripes and crochet overlay is very classic-with-a-twist…and totally belongs in my closet.
  7. One night last week, I was looking for a quick, single serving chocolate chip cookie recipe that wouldn’t leave me with a dozen or more cookies to eat, and this one was easy and so tasty. Perfect for if you just want one cookie (or two or three…it actually makes way more than one)!
  8. I just want to look as classy and pulled together as the model in the first picture looks. Is that TOO much to ask for? ;)
  9. And just in case you DO indulge in that chocolate chip cookie recipe above (and you should), here are 10 healthy dinners that actually look really delicious to balance it out!
  10. And lastly, a pretty polka dot skirt to get you ready for spring!

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!

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!
