I wore this the weekend before Christmas but pushed back the post since I had a couple "more Christmasy" outfits to share first. One of which features a coat I bought on this day! We hadn't done too many "Christmas" activities this year since we were in Missouri over Thanksgiving and the week after. I had been wanting to go to Strawberry Hollow Farm in Guilford for a while (it's supposed to be SUPER cute in Fall) so we made the trek up there to see what they had for Christmas. I ended up getting an adorable gourd moose.

After that we stopped at the Bishops Orchard farm market and bought some bagels and a Charlie Brown inspired Christmas Tree that was half off - can't beat $15! Since we were in Guilford I decided to finally stop by Marijane Boutique since I've been meaning to check it out for a long time. Lydia works there so it was fun to see her, the last time we saw each other was July....whoops! I ended up buying a gorgeous Burberry coat (that you saw last week!)

We finished our fun day by going to The Chowder Pot for lunch, one of our favorites - the honey butter bread is the BEST. On our way home we decided to do our grocery shopping too so we wouldn't have to leave the house again that weekend, haha!

I should have worn my sunglasses for these photos, the sun was RIGHT in my face. But I was trying to switch things up from my usual.

Some more photos from the day:

Worn on another cold Spring day. It was nice in the sun but pretty chilly otherwise! I wore this to have a quick visit with my (vaccinated) Grandparents on Easter! It was so nice to be able to see them in person! I'm sure my Grandma was getting tired of my emails - I would send her photos of things I had baked or Christian's garden updates, ha ha.

Happy February? Thank goodness for the shortest month of the year. I'm ready for it to start staying lighter later and get a teeeeny bit warmer.  I don't mind the cold too much (unless its biting cold) because I get to layer up in sweaters and vests but I do hate how dark it always is. Makes me not want to get dressed!  This was worn on a "warmer" day last week, aka not in the single digits or teens. I did wear a coat on top of all this but I survived for the photos!

Wearing one of my new January purchases in this look, a top I got for $7.65 - it was $0 after a gift card. The bag is a gift my brother got me while he was in Thailand. I have a bit of an owl obsession and you can never have too many bags! I had my computer, slippers, camera and the rest of my regular purse stuff in here and it all fit fine! (I took out the computer for the photos so my arm wouldn't die)

Vest: French Connection faux-fur vest (Marshall's), Turtleneck: J.Crew ribbed flare-sleeve turtleneck, Jeans: J Brand Maria skinny jeans in Blueberry (The RealReal), Boots: Cordani - similar (Roundabout Resale), Sunglasses: Chanel, Belt: unknown, Hat: Kensington Palace gift shop, Bag: from Thailand (gift from my brother)

This might be one of my favorite recent looks. I wasn't sure what to wear so I asked the boy to help pick out my outfit. First he decided on dark jeans and then wanted a lighter top. We were having trouble picking out a top so we moved on to shoes and he said "something bright!" so I grabbed these Sam Edelman espadrilles. Then we went back to looking for a top and decided on my loved but rarely worn (because it's white) French Connection sequin leopard top because the leopard's eye matched the sandals.

The bag was easy, we kept with the teal/blue theme with my Marc Jacobs bag. Finally I asked what jewelry I should wear and he wanted something else animal themed. I remembered this Forever 21 turtle necklace that I haven't worn in quite a while. Partly because it turns my finger green if I have it on too long and because when I first bought it I didn't realize it was a knockoff of this Noir ring. After finding that out I wanted to own one of their animal's still on the wishlist, sadly.

I wanted to wear these boots one last time before they go away until next Winter so I chose this throwback outfit since it is a liiiittle more Springy. The bright red definitely lifts up my spirits when wearing it but the off-white vest tones it down a bit. Sadly the alligator brooch from the original look broke a few years ago so it just sits on my dresser instead of on my clothes.

The Original:
I wore this over the weekend to go shopping and out to lunch with my brother. I behaved and didn't buy anything, woo! It was still a little chilly but I wanted to add a bit of brightness to my outfit so I wore my bright green sweater under a cape for some Spring layering. I also wore these brighter blue skinny jeans instead of my darker washes. Not totally Spring, but we're getting there!

Cashmere Cape: b chyll (Roundabout), Sweater: French Connection c/o Marshalls, Jeans: J Brand 'Maria' high rise skinny in Blueberry (The Real Real), Loafer: Burberry Prorsum (Net-a-Porter, another pair), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

It's still chilly but I wanted to break my rut of wearing jeans everyday so I opted for these slightly flared velvet pants I've had for years. Hopefully soon I'll be able to start wearing dresses and skirts without freezing. Guess we'll see what Mother Nature has in store for us next week!
