While nearly the rest of the entire US is covered in snow, it’s been nothing but crisp sunny days here in Virginia. It is still quite chilly, but there’s not a flake of snow or chunk of ice to be seen. I’m quite okay with this considering it’s nearly a month and a half after Christmas. Let’s goo Springtime!
I chatted with my mom yesterday and she told me we have 71 inches back home in Connecticut- did you catch that? 71 inches!!! That’s six feet, bloggies. Yeah, I know, craziness. Here’s a photo she sent me of the 4 foot icicles hanging in our front foyer window:
With this nice weather, and no six feet of snow to have to trudge through (thankful for that), I was able to get in a few good shoots this weekend for some outfits. Yes, I know, it’s a few days afterward, but when I’m on my computer all day for Foley + Corinna I find it hard to sit back down and be inspired to write!
One of my friends here at school loves photography – doesn’t she take great photos? The ground was a little squishy from some rain we had last week, but we managed to find some dry spots to sit on.
I am obsessed with blazers – especially this boyfriend one. It was given to me by one of my best friends back at home for my birthday. I’ve worn this more times than I can count! It’s probably the most versatile piece in my wardrobe, and a complete staple for any. I’ve thrown it over a dress, v-neck tee, and dressy tank. Here, I wanted to spice up this white bow Zara top, since I have absolutely no tan and would’ve been drowned out. Ick, the things winter does.
Blazer – gifted; Target
Black Jeans – Gap
Ballet Flats – Steve Madden
White Bow Top – Zara
Watch – Michael Kors
Oh yes, some of you may be wondering about the watch. I’ve been waiting to share this with you all! This was my birthday present from my boyfriend. (Remember he got me the LV for Christmas? Yeah, he’s pretty awesome.) He gave this to me when we visited his home in Atlanta after New Years and before returning to VA. I had been wanting a MK boyfriend watch for so long. The best part was that I had absolutely NO idea he had gotten it for me! I was completely thrilled when I opened the box to find the face of this gold beauty staring right back at me. After visiting the MK store three (yes three, I know. ridiculous) times to get the watch sized, I finally had it right. And it’s perfect. And I’m in love. With it and my boyfriend.
I’m jetta-ing off to New York for Fashion Week next Wednesday. It’s going to be an incredible uber-busy trip, not to mention absolutely freezing and full of sand, slush, and dirty snow. Yuck! How in the world are we bloggers supposed to dress? Lots of layers, ladies! And be sure to pack your cozy scarves, leather gloves, and boots, boots, boots! I know for sure that’s what will be in my bag. 🙂
P.S. I also wanted to give a shout out to all of my new followers! We’re almost to 100- amazing! Thank you ALL for your support and continuing to read the files. 🙂 xx
