Winter Blush

posted on: 2/26/2015

Well I've decided that if I have to embrace winter again I can at least do it with a spring palette. It's the only way to get through the last of winter. Of course I'm not mad at a pink coat. Who could be upset when they get to wear such a pretty hue? 

Oh look, it's my girlfriend jeans again. (Which I think we all decided on as a good name for them, yes?) They are so comfortable and like all good denim, the more I wear them the better they fit. I think I said this before but I'm new to this brand, Kut from the Kloth, and I am now a believer. I'm actually kind of eyeing this pair for spring. Not to get ahead of myself though, since I'm in a coat again. We all knew this Texas girl's luck with winter would wear off eventually. And by winter I still mean above freezing. 

But barely...okay? I am (admittedly) such a wimp.

Snowy Day Ombre

posted on: 2/25/2015

We didn't think it would happen this year but we finally got our half inch of snow. You should see the mini snowmen I've built. I know you're impressed. It's just one of my many hidden talents of mine that you didn't know existed. 

Just when I think I'm done with coats, the winter weather checks me. That's alright because it just gives me a reason to show off this little ombre number here, which I can't believe I haven't blogged before. How have I been holding out on showing you this coat?? This winter is just doing us all some favors because I get to wear one of my favorite coats again and share it with you. 

I'm actually pretty thankful for this winter weather lately. It's kind of slowed everyone and everything down here which I needed to happen. (You've probably noticed I've been a bit behind on posts. Sorry! Sometimes life takes priority over outfits.) After going to market last week in Vegas for West & Lou, all of the work seemed to pile up in nicely, unorganized piles on my desk. So these past few days have been slow and steady catch up days. Feel free to keep snowing and icing our little world over, weather. I'm just almost caught up. (...and then after I get caught up on work I could really get caught up on my TV shows. So I say let it snow!)


Back Up Plan

posted on: 2/23/2015

You see that small half inch of snow / sleet or what we like to call here in Texas a 'wintery mix' behind me? Well that little bit of weather has closed all the schools, some roadways and more importantly all of my local coffee shops that I hit up like a bad habit on a daily basis. Snowpocalpyse? Perhaps not. But when you force my coffee shops to close, that's some type of natural disaster in my book. 

We of course are not prepared for this kind of weather down here and you can't blame us. We are used to warm weather all the time which is why I had to reverse my brain back to layers again today. I'd planned to wear this top and sweater combo with a skirt and dare I say -- bare legs -- this week but I think my back up plan of red pants worked out in my favor. You know I love a pop of red and I never mind a back up plan. (I mean 90% of my plans are back up plans, let's be honest.)
