Wind Chill

wch_1Wow.  Happy Wednesday!  It’s amazing how time literally flies by.  I’ve been totally negligent with my blog, but this winter has been really really tough to go shoot pictures.  So I’ve been hibernating, but I’m back out of the cave.  This time of the year is always hard because the Midwest doesn’t look so pretty right now, to tell you the truth.  And well it makes me not want to take pics.  Time and again I still wonder why I’m still here and well it’s because of family.  I couldn’t stand to part with them.  I took this pic a while back before all the snow set in, cuz believe me it does not look like this right now.  I’m still aboard the culotte train, and I love red and beige together.  I literally survived this winter by layering: camisole, thermal shirt, button down shirt, sweater, then coat or jacket and repeat.  Not so exciting but the system worked when it was 0 degrees outside.wch_2wch_3wch_4wch_5wch_6Coat: Mango, Sweater: Forever 21, Pants: Stylenanda, Bag: Louis Vuitton

ctd_1We’re in full Winter mode now here and these pictures are from before the snow.  Winter is always a tough time for us because it’s just really long.  We live in padded coats and duck boots to keep out the cold and slush.  During winter, my wardrobe becomes definitely more functional.  Cozy sweaters and jeans are my go to pieces and I usually tend to spruce the ensemble up with a colorful or fuzzy coat.  I love these coated jeans, they have a leather-like appeal minus the headaches of caring for leather.  They add that urban chic flair but you can still style them up or down depending on your mood or the weather.ctd_2ctd_3ctd_4ctd_5ctd_6Coat: Stylenanda, Sweater: Forever21, Jeans: Old Navy, Shoes: Zara, Bag: See by Chloe

Fall In Love

fil_1xHappy Holidays!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Perhaps it is due to the lack of snow, as well as having to work everyday except Christmas, but this year, Christmas did not feel festive and holiday-ish.  But nonetheless, it was great to see my family and catch up with relatives I rarely see.  It makes me realize how precious those moments are.  It’s been relatively warm here and very un-December-like.  For the past few days the temps have hovered in the 40′s hence the shorts as you can see.   I recently hit up the 20% off Sale at Yoox and some damage was done.  You gotta be really careful, like really think about is this worth buying? and make sure you don’t have twitchy fingers.  This Love Moschino sweater was just so darling I had to get it.  How could you not fall in love with it?  My long camel coat is a F21 find, it’s actually quite sturdy and heavy.  I like that it’s substantial, and wearable during the cold winter months.  The only minus is the lack of pockets!  And I’m adoring this over the knee boots.  They’re wedges, so they’re really comfortable! fil_2xfil_3xfil_4xfil_5xfil_6xfil_7xSweater: Love Moschino from Yoox, Coat/Shorts: Forever 21, Boots: Wild Diva, Bag: Louis Vuitton
