Go home Mother Nature, you're drunk

We just got hit with another spring snowstorm.  I heart Minnesota so hard, I really do love living here, but these last couple of winter-springs have been just ugly!! But hey, for today's Pinned It Spinned It I can at least pretend it's spring with a pretty mint sweater.

Here's a little secret too - I actually wore this outfit yesterday before it snowed.  I also wish I had thought to wear these cute leopard shoes I have, I didn't realize it until looking at the pin again that she has a leopard belt on.  Oh well.  This was the pin that caught my eye when I first saw the April calendar and I thought - hey, I can do that outfit!  And then I saw some of the others and realized, I can do a bunch of these!  It's been fun so far.

Sweater - Mossimo, swap
Tank top - Old Navy
Pants - Old Navy
Shoes - Mudd, Kohls 

I'm also sharing day six of the challenge here today too - I realized that I kind of dressed like the pin without even trying - this is probably as close as I could get since I don't have white jeans.  And boots were a necessity with the snow today!!

I'm warm and cozy and dry.  Who knew that would be a concern on April 4th of all times.  Seriously. We've been joking at work about running away to Florida.  

Flannel - Ruff Hewn, thrifted
Sweater and jeans - Old Navy
Boots - Target

And in other news, Oliver's appointment went very well yesterday - he seems to have handled his shots better this time!  And we were a little over estimated on his weight, he weighed in at 16lbs, 1oz.  I think his weight growth has slowed a bit due to last week's hunger strike, but with his appetite this week I won't be surprised to see it jump again.  He's still slightly ahead of the curve on his weight!  There's a reason I sometimes call my boy "pumpkin" and not "peanut"!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  6. I, of course, am in all black and white today...dressing for gloom. I should have thought like you and worn spring like clothing!!

  7. Love the plaid. We're getting storms down south. Not sure about FL but here in TN we're bouncing from Spring to Winter every other day or two.

  8. here's to hoping the snow stops! such a brutal never-ending winter. it's like game of thrones over there!
