wearing - 3/50

knit headband - j.crew // scarf - old navy // coat - h&m // fleece-lined leggings - t.j. maxx // boot - francesca's

Let me just start with the fact that I will never be able to replicate this messy bun, so thank goodness it was captured for posterity. I'd like to think I can recreate my formula, but let's not kid ourselves. A good messy bun is here for a fleeting moment & can never be replicated. Like a snowflake!

I think all my prattling on about our "one snow day" jinxed us into a second round of snow exactly one week later. As soon as our apartment pathway was no longer covered in ice (thanks, landlord!), we got a fresh layer of ice & snowflakes to shut down the city once more. Fortunately! This time was a lot less blustery, & we spent a good amount of time wandering an eerily quiet & deserted downtown, dodging the road crews who I'm sure loved having us around. Orrrrr something.

This wonderful winter weather has rationalized my quest for the fleece-lined legging, after missing the memo that Target's were on sale earlier in the fall. Turns out, TJ Maxx has a huge supply for half the price, so you're welcome! I'll definitely be sporting them on my walk to work tomorrow morning, & you bet this Old Navy scarf, shed though it may, will be wrapped up to my ears. I'll just pretend I'm walking to Sochi for the Olympics. HA I WISH. ... I do wish that, though.

  1. Love your adorable blog so much! That lip color and scarf are divine! How'd you tie your scarf to get it to look that way? #killer

    1. Ah, thanks! I looped it around my neck once, then tucked one side through the loop in front of my neck. Then pulled the other side over & through that same front loop. Then, just tucked & pulled till it was the coziest possible! That probably makes no sense to read, ha.

  2. I'm obsessed with the colors, textures, and patterns in this look...all just so damn good. I'm in SoCal and this outfit is making me miss cold weather for the first time in a looong time!

    1. Oh man... Tradesies for SoCal weather ANY DAY. The snow was lots of fun, but now I'm ready for sunshine & beach.
