So serious, so dorky.

Coat: Old Navy
Cardigan: Banana Republic
Dress: No labels (thrifted)
Shirt: Nordstrom Blouses (thrifted)
Fleece tights: Fred Meyers
Boots: Rampage (Fred Meyers)
Handbag: Coach (Thrifted)

This is one of those outfits that I thought looked a little weird in real life, but photographed well. (So much better than the other way around.)  

Only eleven inches of snow has fallen so far this year and it's wreaking havok with everyone's pipes in town.  Usually by November we have three feet of snow and that snow helps insulate the ground and everyone's pipes because as soon as the super cold hits, pipes that are only a few feet in the ground with no snow to hold in the heat break.  This is a round about way to say that all of the plumbers in town have been really busy and we couldn't get anyone out to look at ours.  The upside is Evan and I managed to figure out and fix the problem on our own and now we have running water, we can use the sinks, take showers, ect!  It's wonderful.  


  1. The Colour of your Eyes looks amazing! Beautiful Pictures :)


  2. I really like the color of the tights, and they go well with the shoes also.

  3. Wow that's so crazy - the snow causes problems I wouldn't even think of! That outfit is awesome! I love it when they work out better than you imagine haha :)

  7. Oh glad to hear your hot water is back!!! Yay!!! Hope the snow will magically appear overnight, though, for the pipes and everyone's peace of mind.
    Really like the skirt here - so pretty! x

  8. So good to hear your plumbing issues are sorted out! Thanks for your super kind comment - proves my theory on how sweet fashion bloggers are! I was viewing your photos and these look like two completely different outfits, its amazing how a trench coat can change a look - It adds sophistication and elegance and then the second look is so beautifully layered and styled. The snow looks so pristine!

  9. yOUR outfit's help me so much since it's getting so COLD here ;)



  10. yay for solving the problem without paying to anyone else! ;)
    the floral pattern of your dress is beautiful and I also like the mint accent, your bag and the way you have belted the whole thing. great look, Katie!

  13. I never thought of snow as an insulator, but that actually makes a lot of sense. Glad you were able to get everything fixed up!

    Xo Megan,

  16. katie girl, i agree that it photographed well! the blue colors are frosty with the cranberry tights. i quite like it. :) hooray for you and evan solving the pipe problem on your own. just think of the money you saved too? right?

  17. You always find the best places to take pictures! Amazing blazer!

  18. Not enough snow! Now that seems like an unusual problem, haha. But it must have been awful to not have running water, glad you were able to fix it!

  19. We had fix our own pipes once after we forgot to detach the garden hose and the pipe it was connected to burst over the winter. Oops! Thankfully my husband is handy and fixed it himself!

  20. Your dress and blazer combination could not be more perfect. The matching moody hues and contrasting textures are so appealing. The black backdrop for the floral print looks elegant and makes the black piping on the blazer really pop. Speaking of popping, look at those baby blues! You have really pretty-coloured eyes.

    Glad to hear your piping issue was resolved. I can imagine how frustrating that whole process would have been!

  21. I love the plum wine tights. <3

  22. Katie, the pretty color of your shirt peeking out really draws out the pretty color of your eyes!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always like hearing feeback! (It really makes my day!)
