Grey Days

I'm back! I'm alive! I survived the snowstorm unfortunately named Nemo! Actually I got the h out of New York before that snowstorm hit. Well actually as the snowstorm was hitting. I was sweating bullets as flights were being cancelled left and right at the terminal gate. My husband and I were on separate planes and as my plane took off, I thought he was already an hour in the air. Wrong. He was still sitting on the plane, on the runway where he stayed for FIVE hours before finally taking off. I will never complain of a late take off ever again, right?

Of course the snowstorm wasn't as bad as they predicted but still this Texan girl is terrified of blizzards. Unless they are from Dairy Queen, and then I welcome them with open hands and a spoon.

So we get home and it's sunny, then it's rainy. Then it's sunny! Then it's rainy. Today it's just Seattle, so I dressed accordingly. (Is this how the cool kids in the northwest dress? No? Okay cool.) Oh and that cord that's hanging out of my purse? It's my ear phones. I didn't realize it was there until right now. One day we will be professional at this picture taking thing and everything will be tucked, ironed and in it's place. One day.

  13. Love this little look perfect for a grey day. And actually, I used to live in the Northwest, most people don't dress this cute. So you're way ahead of the game. Except for the earbud cord....

  14. I'm loving the casual vibes you have going on in today's post! Northern ladies do tend to dress a lot like this...mainly because it's our only way to remain somewhat stylish without ruining our favorite pieces! Hope you are staying dry!

  17. Those boots and that bag are simply amazing, of course they are from Madewell! I've wanted to have something from their shop for AGES but am still saving up ... they're so expensive!

    Glad you made it safely away from Nemo!

  18. I hear ya with the delays! I once set on runway for couple of hours too - not fun... And flying alone is even less fun 
    Lovely outfit!

  26. Blizzards should definitely be of the ice cream kind only. Glad you made it home safely! I'm definitely eying a military jacket, but haven't found the right one yet... The hunt continues.

  27. I think the ear phones add more of a hipster vibe. :)

  28. Glad to hear you survived the storm! You're definitely dressing for Seattle today with this awesome grunge look. Way to rock it!

  30. The cord echos seattle's hipster movement... Will we ever get to see pics of you doing your thang in NY? I'll assume you said yes.

  31. Ugh! I am so sorry about your plane experience. Airports, bad weather, and planes always give me anxiety.

  35. I love this outfit Kendi! I like want to be in this outfit right now. Perfect for our not so awesome weather in the Northeast. I am glad NY didn't get it as bad as they predicted and you made it out okay/on time but in MA we got 25 inches in my town and it was crazy.

  36. Definitely hipster Seattle-esque. And I hope it's still cool to look this way because this is the exact look that happens every Saturday and Sunday for me.

  61. Love this look. And also - today I attempted to look fashionable for the first time since Nemo (we're in Boston...) and my husband looks at me and said, "What up, Kendi?!" I think he knows my not-so-secret obsession with your blog:)

  62. Fun outfit, with a  great military jacket.
    I love that you can see the earphone. Makes it more personable

  66. Oh dear, as an Australian, I'd have been terrified by flying through the blizzard myself! I love this outfit and I am sure it is just what the fly kids in PNW are wearing.

  70. This outfit is so perfect to me right now. I've been under-the-weather, so nothing looks better than a cozy, casual outfit. Also, I love that the cord is hanging out of your bag. There's something more personal about outfit posts when it's not so perfect. :)

  86. So glad you made it home ok! You seriously lucked out. Friday was absolutely insane (ice cold, 50mph winds, and snow!! It kept piling up!). I'm happy to be home where at least the temp is higher than 30 degrees :) Btw I could have used that hat in New York..

  92. Adore your outfit. Totally effortless. Glad you made it home and it sucks that you and your husband were separated. The storm looks insane. I lived in Alberta for most of my life and I grew up with crazy winter snow storms. Don't miss them now that I'm living in Vancouver.
