let it snow

this snow is getting a little out of control. there's still snow everywhere from last week's snow storm and yesterday it decided to snow even more! it was a little annoying because we had to drive about an hour to my grandparents house, but we made it safe and sound. my whole family got together to celebrate my sister and my grandpa's birthday because they are monday + tuesday this week. it was a great day just sitting around talking, eating, and drinking wine. i'm very thankful that i live so close to my family. it's nice just to get together and catch up.


after leaving my grandparents, we had to head back to baltimore for another birthday celebration! one of anthony's coworkers had a fabulous little get together downtown. we had dim sum at this awesome little hole in the wall chinese restaurant and grabbed a few drinks after. it was nice to see everyone and eat yummy food. it was definitely a great day for birthdays. 


the key to staying warm in this crazy polar vortex is layering layering layering. i'm always wearing at least two or three shirts and/or sweaters at all time. i do not handle the cold very well, but am trying my best to survive in these single digit temps. one of my favorite layering techniques is pairing an old thrifted plaid under a fun sweater. it's warm and cute at the same time, which we all know is very, very difficult to come by.


the only other thing you need is a bold statement necklace. this gold plate necklace is the perfect length to complement the collar on the plaid shirt.  throw in some matching red nails and fun socks andyou have a complete winter ready look. what layering tips do you have to keep warm in the colder months?



i hope everyone is enjoying their lovely sunday afternoon. thanks for stopping by!

  6. You're super cute! I'm all about the plaid under shirts. I also wear a this long sleeved thermal top under everything - I just spent time in Northern Scotland and europe and know what the single digit temp's feel like!

  15. adorable layers! i totally agree -- a statement necklace can pull everything together. i've been wearing tons of layers too, fleece-lined leggings have been a life-saver this winter.
