alright people. i'm officially done with winter. no more of this "but the snow is so pretty!" or "layering is fun!" talk. i can't do it anymore!! lets just all take a vote and choose to skip ahead a few months to blue skies and sunshine. i'm not talking full blown summer, but just temperatures above the teens and no more frozen precipitation falling from the sky. who's in!?
these photos weren't from that long ago, but it was a much happier time. the ground wasn't white and a chunky sweater was enough to keep me warm. this post is me looking back and reminiscing on the better days. the days when i could wear only one pair of tights (now i need to double up) and i could leave the house without a sweatshirt/jacket/hat/gloves/ski mask combo. okay the ski mask is a joke but i do hope february is when we say bye-bye to weekly snow dustings and wind chills of below zero (i know it's unlikely, but hey a girl can dream).
this is one of my most frequently worn sweaters and you've probably seen it before. the maroon and stripes are just my absolute favorite. you can see me style it with pants here but i decided to try something new and pair it with this great skirt i scored for $9.99 at tj maxx. the shape is perfect and i obviously bought it in a different color as well. i mean have you met me? how could i resist.
i know it's only wednesday but i'm already looking forward to the weekend. i see a lot of staying inside in my future. on friday, anthony and i are having a little get together in our apartment with some friends and i can't wait! i'm gonna make some fun snacks and drinks and it'll be a great way to kick off the weekend. saturday, we are heading downtown to try this new mexican restaurant that anthony's aunt and uncle got us a giftcard to for christmas! we've only heard good things and i love trying out new places to eat. are you already planning out your weekend or is it just me?
happy hump day to all. and stay warm!
