So typically we shoot outfit photos in the morning but this morning was so cold that we had to postpone until this afternoon. Usually I can handle it, especially the "winters" in Texas, but after standing outside for more than a few seconds a string of curse words flew out of my mouth and into the nice, warm car I went. I am not proud of my potty mouth, but my friends it was just that cold. The weather needed to be cursed at, trust me.  
I'm not really a fan of winter but I am a fan of warm sweaters that belong in a ski resort, such as this one. And I suppose if it takes this cold of weather to wear such a sweater, then I will suck it up, clean up my mouth and take it. For fashion's sake, of course.

  1. Can I just say that I TOTALLY feel you on this weather right now? I am a fan of the cold weather... but it's basically impossible for me to do anything outdoors right now because it's so darn chilly! So I completely don't blame you for cursing the weather. I may or may not have done the same thing while walking the dog this afternoon.

    Hi, Kendi!
    Honestly, I don't how long I can handle winters in Romania :)! It's freezing and snowing all the time, and with the holidays being over, it's just not that fun anymore!

    You look great with those glases! Cute outfit!

  21. It was so cold this morning in Kansas! I think the high was like 7 when I started my car. It's so hard to look cute in winter and take photos without a coat that completely ruins the whole look!

  24. Texas winters are nothing compared to NORTH DAKOTA winters. Temps of -5 with windchill factors of you-don't-want-to-know. I hibernate during winter.

    I wore those pants today, and think I'll wear shoes like that next time. Cute outfit!

  31. It's a good thing you don't live somewhere cold. People might think you have turrets syndrome.

    Those polka dot socks are so delightful with the outfit! I also like how you have the neutrals next to the vibrant tomato colour of the pants.

  71. I completely understand about cursing the weather. I usually take my outfit pictures in the morning as well but these past couple of days in Chicago have been miserable. Trying to smile and look like you love what you're wearing is so hard in 18 degree weather with no coat on. Oh the things we do for our blogs, haha!

  79. Yep - definitely a ski lodge outfit and I am in love with it. I love cold weather - when I'm bundled up by a huge stone fireplace sipping hot cocoa and watching everyone ski outside the window. And I would wear an outfit like that while I did it.
