Thank you everyone for taking the time to give me some great feedback, I really appreciate it.  Even though this blog is a hobby, I do want it to be fun and enjoyable for everyone who takes the time out of their day to read it. (And I'm so happy that it does load easily, one of my personal peeves is a blog that crashes my computer while it's trying to load.)  Thank you so much, you ladies are amazing and I really look forward each day to reading your comments, you all are so honest and it really means a huge amount to me. 

You'll all have to pardon my lumpy appearance today, I've got long johns, a pair of leggings and fleece tights on underneath and it's still a little chilly!  It was about -36 below when I took these, so this black jacket is one of the bottom layers, under thee other coats layered up.  I try not to post too many pictures of my overall winter outfits, they all just end up looking like this:

That's right, what's a winter post without " A Christmas Story" reference?

  2. If it is that cold, you should leave your outerwear on! I know it's more of a challenge to remix, but it is winter (almost) after all.

    Or you could always be like me and just buy ten million coats...

    Chic on the Cheap

  3. LOL, love that picture! Great outfit, love the necklace :)


  4. I like Lyddie's lots of coats!
    I love the way you incorporated lace into your outfit and the brim of the hat. Stay warm, girlie!

  5. The layers would definitely explain it. I love how you wore those popular polka dot jeans. Very fun and creative - as usual! :)
    And girl, thank you so much for your kind words and support. This is one of the reasons I've enjoyed blogging so much - the people I get to meet through it, and even if we don't know each other in real life, the friendship that's made none-the-less.
    Do you have a facebook? That'd be a nice way to keep in touch.

  6. I hope it didn't feel too freezing to take those outfit shots. I totally know the feeling by the way since Estonian winters can be really tough too. but I still want/have to take my outfit shots, hehe. I try to use as many different coats and jackets as possible then :P
    anyway, I also wanted to say I love the hat you're wearing and also the beautiful lace top and turquoise necklace. nice layering once again ;)

  7. I can't even imagine what 36 below feels like! You are my hero for taking outfit photos when it's that cold! Love that lacy top and the snowy photos are so pretty :)

    The Other Side of Gray

  8. 36 BELOW?! Oh my gosh, I don't even venture outside much once it's 30 degrees here. I admire you so much for taking these photos outside for us! I love your polka dot jeans!

  9. Hi Katie, the snow does looks heavenly here from sunny SA, thats more my kinda weather. Love how you stay so fashionable even in these freezing conditions, the lace top and pendent are so pretty!

  10. 36 below? ... and now I feel bad for complaining about 28 degree weather with bad windchill this morning. You should do a post on outerwear. I bet you're an expert!

  11. You deserve a medal for the photos! Can't believe it's that cold already!!! x

  12. haha...Love that last reference to the Christmas Story!
    Cute look! =) You're so brave to take photos in such chill!

  13. Great :)
    Love your hat.

    Ina :*

  14. What a beautiful look dear! I love the accent on the details. The hat and the necklace are super gorgeous



  15. I can't believe you went outside to take photos - that's crazy! I appreciate it though!

  16. These photos are so cool! Alaska looks beautiful and your jacket is amazing!

  17. i want that fred meyer hat! katie, it looks like you are in a christmas winter wonderland. i'm so glad you showed us a close up of the pretty lace with blue under, and that darling necklace too. :)

    1. Oooh, Fred Meyers has this hat on crazy clearance right now, it's only a few dollars. (Do you have Fred Meyers in your state, or is it Kroger?)

  18. oh and i looked for the necklace, but didn't see it listed. i was wondering if it's vintage?

    1. I'm so sorry Teddi, I'm really bad about listing my accessories. (I'll try to be better from now on.) You're right, it is a vintage pendant!

  19. I saw polka dot jeans like these...but right now jeans are not my friend. Gosh you make snow look warm! haha


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