Style Update: Snow Wear

Look at all that snow!  On the way to our weekly dinner date to Chipotle (yes--we love it that much!), I made the hubs pull over by a park and take a picture of me in the snow.  I had lofty visions of me in the middle of a winter wonderland, but these were soon dashed when I realized how deep and wet the snow was.  I settled for standing by a snow drift.  Some of my expressions look kind of weird, so please ignore those.  If I had all the riches in the world, I would buy everything in my wardrobe from JCrew or Anthropologie.  Alas, I don't, but I still want my clothes to have that same vibe.  I think you can find similar stuff from places like Target and Old Navy.  I know that the quality might not be quite the same, but I have cardigans from Target that I have worn for years.  The reason I'm always so drawn to JCrew and Anthropologie is because I like how they put things together in the store.  I have to force myself to use it as inspiration and "shop my closet" to mix and match things in different ways to make them feel fresh again.  This is a new combo for me, and I like how adding the brooch and earrings added a little something.  This was fun to wear, because now until the end of this snow I'm going to be in my full parka and snow pants.  Maybe I need to invest in some moon boots, as popularized by one Napoleon Dynamite.  Those and boondoggles.

  1. You look very pretty in that last picture. Beautiful smile. I've never looked into J Crew but I LOVE Anthropologie. I am dying for some of their clothes. Their dresses are so pretty. I have never shopped at Target much but I've been there a few times this year and they really do have some great stuff. You're right, it's not quality stuff but it's still pretty and budge friendly. :)
