BCBG Hat (thrifted) / Fred Meyer Scarf (old) / Jones NY Wool Coat (thrifted, old) / Banana Republic Cashmere Sweater (thrifted) / AG Jeans (thrifted) / Steve Madden Boots (thrifted) / Mulberry Alexa Bag (ebay)

I really liked this outfit but not in pictures. In person it's all cute and slouchy and it the pictures it just looks sloppy. Ugh, light blue jeans, why you so hard?

One Cold Morning

Fred Meyer Scarf (old) / Fleet St Parka (thrifted) / Lauren Ralph Lauren Sweater (thrifted) / Theory silk Top (thrifted) / Helmut Lang Leather Pants (ebay) / Moon Boots (ebay)

I've been trying to wear something other than dark bottoms with my moon boots and I ended up really liking this outfit.  The colors are brighter than I'd normally go with these but I felt it was super cute in a practical, cold weather way.

BCBG Hat (thrifted / Fred Meyer Scarf (old) / Old Navy Coat / French Connection Velvet Blazer (consignment, old) / Joie Silk Top (thrifted) / Citizens of Humanity Jeans (thrifted) / Sam Edelman Boots (ebay) / Leather Bag (thrifted)

My husband said I had a serious "Man from Snowy River" look going on and I dunno, I must have slept through the part where he prances around in thigh high boots.  However, that's one of the best commitments ever because my goal is always a low key Man From Snowy River.

Spring Time Blue

BCBG Hat (thrifted) / Valentino Glasses (consignment, old) / Winter Kate Top (ebay, old) / Gap Sherpa Jacket (old, thrifted) / F21 Skirt (thrifted) / Bag (no brand, thrifted) / Sandgrens Clog Boots c/o Sandgrens (2016)

It's been almost 50f and everything is melting and I am feeling the spring fever so badly that sandals sounded like a good idea. (Then, I realized it would look ridiculous - even though it's warm enough for sandals, there's still a ton of snow and slush piles.  I have seen so many dudes out in shorts and slides and quite a few ladies doing the Birks/socks thing so I might have to jump on that train.)  It's been a wonderful contrast to last March when we were suffering through -40F morning but the warmth makes spring clothes so tempting.

Valentino Glasses (consignment, old) / Old Navy Coat  and Tee (old) / Citizens of Humanity jeans (thrifted) / Bag (thrifted) / Moon Boots (ebay)

Still in love with these boots.  I've worn a lot of winter boots over my life and nothing can compare to these - they are so warm, so light, so fabulous and the liner doesn't get wet! I know this because I've twice dumped water down my legs hauling out five gallon buckets to the animals and every time my pants get wet but not the part in the boots nor the liner itself.  Magic!  You want magic boots, you buy Moon boots.
This was a simple outfit, just jeans, a tee but the bag and this jacket helped give the outfit some personality.  This jacket has been a great ON buy and I've worn it quite a bit since I got it, the material is not bad, decent stiches and pockets and it's not bad in the warmth department.  I like the proportions and the way it lays most of all.

ON Hat (barrowed from kids) / H&M Scarf (thrifted) / Jones New York Wool Coat (old, thrifted) / Madewell Sweater (thrifted) / Elizabeth and James Jeans (thrifted) / Sam Edelman Boots (ebay) / Mulberry Alexa (second hand on ebay)

I feel it's fair play that when the kids take my hats to school that I get to barrow theirs in return.  Sometimes, this is unintentional like the other day when I pulled a apir of black pants from the dryer, put them on and was horrified that I'd shrunk my pants. Spoiler, they were my daughter's.  She's only a few inches shorter than me now and with a similar shoulder width, we're not that far out from sharing clothes. It's too soon!

Blown Out

BCBG Hat (thrifted) / Fake Leather Jacket (old, thrifted) / AEO Top (super old) / Free People Dress (ebay, old) and Bag (ebay, old) / Softt Boots (thrifted) / Isabel Marant for H&M Scarf c/o H&M (2013)

I threw on a crop top over this dress to help out with the super deep V-neck and I like how it looked in real life but it didn't really come across in the photos.  It was also a super bright day so the photos are really blown out which always bugs me.  It's hard to balance the light when there's so much snow reflecting it!
