Winter floral

So, we are truly having an old fashioned winter here in Minnesota.  We've been kind of spoiled in recent years - probably due to global warming or something but who wants to be technical - in having milder, gentler winters than the ones I remember growing up.  We have had snowy winters still, but the bitter, nasty cold weather that we are kind of known for here has been taking a hiatus.  Not this year!  It's been so cold all the way back to the week Oliver was born.  I have to say it's not been super fun having a newborn with super cold weather, but we're making the best of it.  To perk things up a bit today, I thought some winter floral was in order!

I found this cute hoodie at a consignment store a couple of weeks ago on a day that was still cold, but not so cold I wasn't afraid to venture out with Oliver for a little bit.  While I'm still away from work I find that zip-up hoodies are nice to throw over my nursing camisoles.  I was putting away laundry and saw this hoodie next to my floral jeans and it was like "Boom!" - outfit for the day.

Hoodie - consignment
Cami - Gillian O'Malley Nursing - Target
Jeans - Mossimo, Target
Boots - Merona, Target

Not that I really wore this out anywhere.  Not only has the temp been dropping today but Oliver has been in a bit of a grump mood as well, I'm surprised I had five minutes to take these pictures.  I won't complain too much though, I need to cuddle him while I still can and while he still actually wants it - I know it won't always be that way!  At least this outfit helped me think warm thoughts today!


  1. That looks like such a warm and cozy that those floral jeans work for all seasons!

  2. Love it, I agree with Jess, 100% cosy looking!

  3. i can't believe how great you look so soon after having oliver!!! and i love brightening up winter with a little floral!

  4. That hoodie and jeans were meant for each other. Isn't it funny how sorting laundry will lead to those "aha" outfit moments? You look lovely - mommyhood agrees with you.

  5. LOVE these pants! And holy cow girl, you LOOK amazing. Did you seriously just have a baby?!
