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!

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.

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!

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

  1. Obsessing over this perfect crossbody purse that holds the essentials and adds some flair with some tassels. It’s affordable and comes in four different color options!
  2. Blogger love of the week: How festive and chic does Daphne look?! Love me a good red, white, and navy outfit!
  3. It’s obviously very much still winter, so this snowflake sweater is still acceptable to wear…and makes the incoming snow seem a little bit cuter (I survive winter based on the lies I tell myself). 
  4. 8 indoor hobbies to get us through the winter season…I’d love to take a calligraphy class or you know…pick up a weight every now and then? ;)
  5. If you want the J.Crew look for less, then snag up this winter coat that is an exact dupe for J.Crew’s chateau parka (that I love so much)!
  6. This floral flare skirt is the perfect piece to remind you that spring does exist. 
  7. Because who doesn’t need s’mores popcorn in their life? Yes, please!
  8. Grab this affordable striped sweater and let’s create 100 outfits with it…it’s that versatile! 
  9. Talk about an inspirational story…check out this North Carolina coffee shop that is serving up compassion with a side of caffeine. 
  10. There are ADORABLE foxes on these socks, so of course I NEED them. I mean alllllll the awwwws!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Merry (early) Christmas, y’all!
  • I hope you all have a wonderful holiday time this weekend with your families, whether that’s your parents, your significant other, your grandparents, your grandchildren, your siblings, your adorable kids who wake you up at 5:00am to open presents, your friends from high school who will never let you forget that one time you did that one thing, or your puppy and/or cat who doesn’t even know it is Christmas but still appreciates the new toys or treats (and an extra scratch or two)!
  • We’re off to spend Christmas with The Husband’s family in Illinois, and I can’t wait to watch my niece open her presents!
  • And then we’re celebrating Christmas with my family (and taking a few days off of work) next week!
  • Such a wonderful time and excuse to spend time with family…and all the Christmas cookies I can get my hands on!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?
