Checks Please

posted on: 12/01/2015

I can always tell I have a winner when my mom sees something and immediately says 'ohhhh, is that new?' Which really means 'when can I borrow that -- like tomorrow?' I've had to watch her like a hawk when she leaves my house to make sure she wasn't taking this jacket with her. She's a sneaky one. But a stylish sneak, whom which I received both traits from. Sneaky and stylish, probably my best characteristics. 

I can understand her love for this jacket though. Oversized checks are bold and classic, especially for winter months when your coat speaks for the rest of your outfit first. Checks give me that retro vibe as well, which is probably why my mom and I both reached for the same style. This jacket is sold out but I've pulled a few more checks into the mix from Chicwish! (Especially love this jacket! Oh-so-similar to the one I'm wearing.)

Cozy Sweater

posted on: 11/30/2015

The holiday weekend hangover has commenced. I woke up this morning confused as to what day it was and then when I realized it was Monday I pulled the covers over my head a little bit more.  Two cups of coffee later and I'm able to communicate via typed words and head nods exclusively. Why are the days after holidays such a sludge to get through? You'd think after eating and napping on and off for a few days, we'd be well rested and prepared for this week. Quite the opposite for me; it's scary how quickly my body adjusted to the life of a lush. 

Did anyone get out and fight the crowds for the weekend of shopping? We were busy in the shop all weekend but I always love hearing if people got out to shop. It was rainy here (like 'Noah get that arc ready' kind of rainy) but people still braved the weather to come and shop small on Friday and Saturday. B and I ended up not leaving our house for the rest of the weekend, because that is what rainy days are for. They are also for very cozy sweaters and large scarves. It's my favorite uniform for this time of year. Give me a big cozy sweater and I'll be one happy girl. 

(PS: it looks like this sweater is on sale for Cyber Monday at Free People and a very similar one at Nordstrom! Can't beat that!)
