wiww - it's really cold out there.

the last two weeks have been a whirlwind..
I had family visiting for the holidays and when my family visits we spending
 virtually every waking minute together.
for reals.
i'm sure they are more then ready to go home at the end of their trip! ha!

I really did try  to catch as many outfit pictures as possible but I really didn't do a good job of it.
can you imagine: "uh, excuse me family while I step outside and take a picture of myself
or better yet, can someone take a picture of my outfit?"
ha :)

jacket: H&M {end of summer}, scarf: forever21, jeans: TJMaxx, moccasin shoes {slippers actually}: Target
earrings: ?

I'd like to say one thing about the outfit above.
it's so cold outside I thought my nose was going to fall off..
and I've got layers and layers of clothing on as well
and yet I'm still cold.
this is the time of the year when I feel like a polar bear..
a short polar bear.


sweater: borrowed/stolen from sister, skinnies: Target, white shirt: Ross, necklace: Target {old}, shoes: TJ Maxx

I asked my husband to take my picture while the rest of my family was inside the warm
and cozy house.
and you know the best part...
he no longer complains.. he just grabs the camera and just takes the pictures.
I think he's either gettin' the hang of this..
he's just given up
or he really really loves me :)


cardi/belt/watch: target, shirt: TJ Maxx, shoes: love culture

and here we are again with more layers of clothing.
what you don't usually see in these pictures are my knee high socks that I usually have under
my jeans/skinnies and tank tops under all my shirts.


vest/sweater: forever21, skinnies: Target, boots: carlos santana unity

one final comment about the outfit above..
you will most likely receive a comment {or several} about
wearing a poodle, a dog or a bird when you have on a vest like this.
usually from a male.. like your husband.

that about wraps it up for me, my friends.
thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek..
and if you are interested in checking out other fabulous styles

Amy said...

As usual your style is amazing! I love the last look with the fur vest! I wonder how cold you think is cold? Here in CT the high is high 20's and I don't want to get out of my comfy bed let alone go outside! I hate the winter, I can't wait for summer again, but at least it isn't snowing yet. Happy day to you!

Cate said...

You always look so cute! I wish my husband would happily hop up and take my pictures. He grumbles just a bit even after all this time.:) By the way, the color in your pictures this week is just beautiful! Particularly, the first two and the last one!
