I do love wearing new pieces for the first time! In this case it's a new-to-me sweater jacket from Rag & Bone. I wore it to a meeting and then dinner at my parents a couple weeks ago. I got it for around $30 in Roundabout's end of season sale and found a bunch available on The Real Real (in the widget below the post!) I tried to make my outfit less Wintery by wearing my Marc Jacobs mouse flats, but it was still rather chilly!

Almost forgot about these photos from the middle of February! My parents, Christian and I went to visit my brother and his new puppy and we went to the Submarine Force Library and Museum. It's free to visit and you get to go inside the Nautilus submarine. Super cool experience. I couldn't imagine being on one of those for months on end.

It was REALLY cold and windy so Christian and I snapped these photos SUPER quickly. Can you see me wincing in pain. And my hair did not want to cooperate. But the outfit was cute so I can't not share now that I remembered they were on his phone!

For those of you that don't pay attention to every single detail of my blog and Instagram posts, aka everyone ;), it is important to note the significance of Wall-E in my life.  It is the first movie Christian and I watched together and was technically our first date.  We watched it while at a Game of Thrones convention his brother was running.

Since then, Wall-E has cemented itself as one of my favorite Pixar movies - it was already in my top. So now, Wall-E and Eve represent our relationship - see our Wall-E shelf (which is missing a few pieces that were in another room in the house that I've since relocated here.) When I went to Disney back in May I just had to get this cute necklace so I could always have Wall-E/Christian with me.

For some weird reason this is the first time this sweater is appearing on the blog this season. I've worn it at least 6 times since the start of Fall so not sure how that happened!

As we all know, I'm a huge fan of muted jewel tones so this Marc Jacobs sweater is still one of my favorites and will continue to be for quite a while.  For this weekend look I decided to style it with all gray (minus the shoes.)

Winter seems to really be hanging on hard, we had a few snow storms in the last week with more on the way. At least some of the snow was good enough to make a snowman with, so Christian and I made our first snowman (as you saw last week.) Today is actually the 1 year anniversary of him driving 20 hours from Missouri to come live with me. My how time flies! Now we're married homeowners, WEIRD!

A simple, yet fun look thanks to my embellished sweater. Just don't hug me while I'm wearing it or you may get stabbed! Unfortunately I'm not completely happy with how this look photographed. The velvet jeans don't look good with the ankle boots. I think I need to wear them with either regular flats or heels, but not flat boots.

We have had a lot of snow the past few days. On Saturday it was good enough to make a snowman with so Christian and I spent our morning making a cute snowman. Unfortunately we had a less fun storm Sunday night that gave us more snow to shovel. It was super heavy so I ended up straining my shoulder while doing our driveway. UGH!

I almost made it through the month without buying any clothes. But then Roundabout sent an email yesterday morning about their winter blowout. 80% off clothes and shoes!! AHH! So I went hoping I wouldn't find anything and I walked out with 3 jackets...whoops!

One is a white blazer which normally isn't my style, because I'm afraid of getting white dirty, but I was drawn to it so now I have to be brave and wear white! Next up is a Sandro Paris burgundy blazer. I've been wanting something from Sandro for quite a few years but could never pull the trigger on anything because they're so pricey. Last is a purple Rag & Bone wool jacket with leather details. I liked it because it's like a blazer but since it's knit that makes it a little more casual.

I'm hoping to get back on track with my no shopping next month, but we'll see! You know I can never pass up an amazing deal if I see one. And I have a $15 credit for The RealReal expiring....

Colors are off a bit in these photos but I took them last night so the lighting wasn't the best. The perils of buying something the day before my wardrobe update is posted!
