Spring Outfit Post #1

So it took a good couple of months for Spring to arrive (in the frozen tundra of Minnesota), but now that it’s here I’ll dust off my computer and do a couple of outfit posts. The post today will be #1 in a mini series, as I have some catching up to do! It’s safe to say I’ve been MIA the past 6 weeks or so, but all for good reason, I assure you.

This first outfit was one I put together (kind of recently) when I decided to break a long couple weeks of not going out (by going out, of course). I love metallics and polka dots almost too much, I think.

cardigan: H&M. slim jeans, hoop earrings, and metallic belt: White House/Black Market. polka-dot top: Aqua (at Macy’s). Olive boots: Via Spiga





I am a huge dork. 

I missed this blog. I should get better about posting.

That’s all for now…more clothes later. 




Happy Snowstorm!

Really, what are you going to do besides online-shop, movie-watch, and bake? I personally am planning on making a snowy trek to my fitness center, but I can see why that doesn’t sound appealing to everyone.
