Borrowed From The Boys

When it's been snowing on and off for over a week, you discover a new appreciation for Hunter boots. These wellies are my go-to shoe when the ground is covered in snow and ice, and for good reason. The rubber sole is perfect for trompin' around in the snow, especially when you're a total klutz-o, like me.

When it comes to casual weekend wear, I go for oversized shirts and sweaters. A light bulb went off the other day, when I realized I could achieve this look by sneaking into Brandon's closet and borrowing one of his henley's. Tip: if you're going to borrow from the boy's, make sure you tuck in the front, because men's shirts tend to be longer and look baggy otherwise.

By the way, I'm co-hosting a link-up with the lovely Zaz today. She's a UK blogger with a heart of gold, and I'm delighted to be in her company. Be sure to check out her blog and link up your outfit posts below! 

Psst...sorry the lighting is all over the place in my pics today. 
We were experimenting. :)

Coat Check

Lately I have been obsessed with coats, as evidenced here. I know you've seen this one before, but I'm diggin' it in a big way, so it's back again.

Guys, I'm not going to lie...the past few weeks have been madness! If you want a hint at what I've been up to, look no further than here. More on that another time, though. In the meantime, let's resolve to say that life is good. Busy...but good. Have a great Tuesday friends. Be sure to come back tomorrow for a fun giveaway.

Chambray + Black Jeans

Fact: these jeans used to be black. Alas, after so many washes, they have faded and lost their color. Lucky for me, the whole faded black/gray look is in right now, so I get by with wearing them for the time being. (The first and only time washing machine woes have worked to my favor.) 
With Spring/Summer like temperatures, and snowfall the next, I've been turning to this classic look quite often. Chambray is such a great piece for transitional weather, because it's light enough for warmer days and goes with just about any old sweater/coat that I might need to throw on when the temps drop. 

By the way, if you're needing a crash course in how to wear jeans with ankle booties, remember two words: tuck or roll. What's your current uniform?

More Issues Than Vogue

Welp, we've been spoiled lately with gorgeous weather and sunny guys, but Jack Frost peeped his chilly little head out yesterday and reminded us that Punxatawny Phil indeed saw his shadow. #whatever
Lately I've been all about the trainers, and these black Nike's go with just about everything. I love throwing them on a dressier look, to get a more laid back vibe, but you can't go wrong with a classic sweatshirt and jeans. Btw, I scored this sweatshirt off Poshmark and am obsessed with the caption! My husband doesn't think it's very funny, but hey, if I dressed for my husband I'd be walking around naked all the time. ;)
