That time between winter and spring when feeling inspired to get dressed just isn’t there. That’s where I am. Anyone else? While I still manage to put myself together most days, I am not feeling motivated to venture out of my clothing comfort zone. This outfit is a perfect example of that. Stripes, denim, black – a typical “me” outfit. The red lip and red bag was my little push of effort because frankly a nude lip and black bag made this outfit a complete snoozefest. I love this bag specifically for looks like this that need a boost of excitement. And a red lip. A red lip always feel like an accessory too.

Snow Day

| , ,

We’ve been enjoying a few weeks of spring weather here that made me get used to not bundling up or wearing any super heavy winter clothing, but now we have moved back into the freezing temps. We only got a light dusting of snow recently, but I know that we probably won’t end the season without another snowfall like the one above in the pics. While I don’t love the snow long term, I do really love it when it first falls and these snow boots (which are now on major sale!) have proven to be so warm and perfect for it. So rather than dread any upcoming snowfall (that is probably inevitable), I will just look forward to wearing my snow boots again. #silverlining
