Wrapped in warmth.
I can't imagine a winter that didn't involve heavy coats and multiple layers. It's all I've ever known. And if you talk to any good Midwesterner, they'll be extraordinarily candid about how important a good coat can be. Take it from someone who is looking forward to 40 degree temps today. And yes, you read that correctly. We were in the negatives just 48 hours ago, my friends.
Lucky for me, cute coats do not mean sacrificing style or warmth. Enter T&J Designs. This coat is WARM! Did I mention the cute bow? Cuz that's necessary to up the cute factor!
Right now the site is hosting a 50% off sale, too. Isn't that convenient? Or dangerous pending on who you talk to!
You really need coats for different occasions. This is a great everyday coat for running around and it looks equally adorable with tights and dresses. Don't underestimate the power of a chic coat...after all, no one really sees what you're wearing underneath when you're bundled up running around the city. Might as make it fashionable on the outside, too.
Happy Hump Day...shop my outfit below:
While my wardrobe has decidedly taken a turn for neutrals; I still have my color moments and well, winter is still in the building if you live in Chicago. So…we back to sweaters. Does this green count as a neutral because I lurve it! I cannot tell you how many DMs and comments I received when I posted on IG so here are the Q+A’s:
Hi! Popping in to say, “I’m still alive!” Busy work weeks will do that to you! All that being said, I have some really fun pieces to share starting with this balloon sleeve top. I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to online shopping destinations. I know what I like and I am loyal. Stumbling upon Vici was a happy accident. Thank you Instagram gods.
I punctuate every outfit I put together with shoes. It’s always the frosting on the proverbial fashion cake. I’m just a shoe girl and it’s always been that way.
It’s also true that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect red boot for what seems like my entire life. An exaggeration, I assure you but it feels that way. It’s always when you’re not looking that you find exactly what you need. Match that with a budget freeze you have yourself the perfect problem. Until now…
Solopreneur. Mompreneur. Entrepreneur. They all point to the same title but what does it mean for you as you contemplate this roller coaster of a journey? I can sum it up in two words: wildly exhausting. Wild and exhausting don’t always have to have a negative connotation. I was a wild 20-something which = I had a heck of a lot of fun! Traveling Europe was exhausting which = fulfilling, enriching, my brain exploded with an appreciation for a different culture.
In case you don’t live in the Midwest, it is f-f-f-f-freezing here. Dressing cute is still a priority but warmth is everything and while I never thought I would be a pullover girl, I can tell you I have officially converted this week! And the best news of all is that the one I am wearing is a mere $20! You cannot beat that!
It recently dawned on me that it’s been ages since I last did an outfit post. I guess life has been busy! Trust me, I’ve been wearing clothes. I swear!
You may have your NYE outfit picked out. Where are my procrastinators out there?
It’s almost too good to be true…a rare Monday post. I used to be so diligent!
I’ve recovered, and I 100% mean “recovered”, from a busy weekend…ready to tackle Monday. This is what it felt like before when work wasn’t as busy and I was actually productive during the work week. It feels great!
We had the perfect Fall weather this weekend, which if you don’t know me, makes my heart so very happy!
