Winter returns?

Oh man is it cold outside this morning!  We are under a freeze warning.  It is so weird that it hasn't been this cold since very early March!  Despite the chilly temps though, it was still sunny out this morning so I suffered through the cold to take my outfit photos today.

It's tough to figure out how to dress for this weather!  The best thing I've found is going with layers.  That way if it actually does get warm you can at least remove something.  I don't think that will be the case today, even with the sun I hear it won't get warmer than about 40 F!

I also have to dress carefully on days I am entering the "construction zone" at work.  My boss actually stepped on a nail last week so I'm not taking any chances!  Good sturdy shoes today.  I get to take pictures of the construction space every Tuesday, so I'm guessing my outfit/shoe choices will be fairly practical on Tuesdays for awhile!

Finally, I want to thank those of you who took the time to watch my vlog from yesterday and for leaving such sweet comments!  I would love to hug all of you!!  It won't be a frequent thing, but maybe I'll do another vlog sometime too!

Outfit rundown:
T-shirt - Mossimo, Target
Sweater - Decree, JCPenney
Pants - Nine West (thrifted)
Necklace - Charming Charlie
Shoes - Mudd, Kohls


  1. What a pretty outfit! Nice assembly of interesting pieces.

    And, for enduring the cold weather, you get my award for Most Dedicated Blogger. (That, and four dollars, will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks...)

  2. Yeeeah it's 26 here right now and the wind makes it feel even colder. No blog pics for me today. I'm putting my foot down. And I totally appreciate--and envy--your bravery.

    I like practical shoe choices. Minnesota just isn't made for tottering around on high heels every day, you know? And neither are construction zones. Although I have done it.

    I'll go watch your vlog now!

  3. Love the pop of color in the cardigan. Stay warm!! I had to bust the tights and boots back out today.

  4. Cute layers! Good luck with the photos of the construction site!

  5. Love those pants. I'm a sucker for striped/plaid/tartan trousers.

  6. Love the outfit. That pop of color is fantastic (especially with the brown!)

  7. I love the orange with your classic pattern pants! You look great and I'm a total supporter of sensible, practical shoes! Go you!

  8. Freeze warning? Boo. I love the bright top with the plaid!

  9. The color of that cardigan is gorgeous! You look so pretty.

  10. Hei! I just found your blog and it is amazing!

    I am following your blog and I hope you will follow mine too!

    Enter my Shabby Apple GIVEAWAY!!!

  12. Eep! Watch those feet. Bright colors look so great on you. Also I adore your plaid pants. <3

    [Re: Buttonflower - Yes I still am absolutely selling them. Send me an email with what colors you're looking for, I may already have something made up you might like. If not, I can email you samples of tie material and buttons and you can pick out what you want. My backlog box is over at my mom's because she has sold a couple to her friends, but I will have it by this weekend.]

  13. It is SO cold today! Brrr. I actually had to unpack Mimi's Winter hat again. Layers are definitely the way to go!

  14. that is a great color on you! i like the necklace too. it was chilly today; i think we will need to turn on the heat tonight (gasp!). have a great evening!

  15. Yipes; just thinking about stepping on a nail gives me the shivers. Glad you've stayed safe so far! Love that outfit; the color looks great on you. Unfortunately, we do not have cooler weather down here. *le sigh* :P

    Also, I watched your vlog! I liked it much, but I don't know if I could do one. lol Not like many people would see it, but I'd feel weird, I think. ;)

  16. I am annoyed by the cold weather. I am glad that I haven't put away my sweaters yet.

  17. Cute! Love the layers on top and especially with that necklace. Ouch... your boss stepped on a nail?! That sounds so painful, definitely keep your feet safe!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
