I was pretty excited about the snow that we got this weekend, despite how incredibly cold it’s been. Snow makes me feel giddy like a kid and all I want to do is throw my own “snow day”, which is exactly what I did! I made a big breakfast and headed out to do some shopping and exploring. One of my favorite things about this weather is watching to see how creative people are when it comes to layering. For me this typically means throwing on a tee, then a sweater, adding a lighter jacket that will fit under my heavy coats that way I can adjust the layers as needed—it’s all about planning the right amount to get you through the day.

DIY denim top, Gap jeans and beanie, F21 boots & clutch
I present to you–the DIY top from my previous post. Nothing too complicated but it definitely brought new life to one of my favorite denim button ups. As you can see, the snow is melting! But I still want the cold weather to stick around, I was made for it! I’m peacing out for a few days (snow days do not mean rescheduling tests, they mean I need to start studying), but I’ll get back to all of you wonderful peeps as time permits!
Finish the weekend off strong…whatever that means to you!

90s sweater dress, Target earrings, F21 boots and belt
I found this sweater in my mom’s closet a while back and love it. The pattern on this knit sweater is so fun, not to mention the billowy sleeves. This was taken before we were dumped on again…with an additional 12″+ of snow! I’m trapped in the house again, but this time I’m prepared! This is a fake flower I had laying in my room, because Zeus decided that chewing it off would be more suitable. Well, I guess his mischief turned out positive.
Speaking of Zeus, he is the best little cuddle buddy during this weather but he finds it fun to take up half of the bed. Ok, I’m starting to sound like a crazy cat lady! The last photo was me playing around in photoshop of course, it almost reminded me of my favorite dress from the McQueen’s 2010 Resort collection (here) …ok, well at least I wish!

***Note: for those who asked about my “ring” in my last post…well, it wasn’t a ring so shhh
Allen B leather jacket (thanks mama), Target boots, thrifted dress,
F21 beanie & tights
I’ve been taking full advantage of this weather, in terms of taking photos. It wasn’t too cold today, but we’re getting dumped on with more snow. This is what I get for wanting so much snow right?! But seriously, this is not good for a busy-body like me.
This has to be one of my favorite dresses, its so long and comfortable. I feel like Morticia Addams (I wish) lounging around. If you couldn’t tell, I was feeling a little edgy and this jacket is so perfect for those days where I’m a little girly and tough.
I focused my energy and finally did another DIY and I will be posting that soon! Productivity & boredom at its best! I hope you all have a warm and safe weekend!

Greetings from a snowpocalypse Fayetteville!
Remember how I was talking about warmer weather? Well that only lasted for a day. We’ve had a snow day WEEK since Tuesday and I just got word that class is cancelled for tomorrow too. Doug and I are trapped in his house because our driveway is pretty much on a mountain and our cars are worthless in the snow. But hey, I’ll make the best of any situation!
I found this fun sweater where I work, and I’m so glad I got it just in time for this weather. It has definitely been a week of catching up on sleep, cuddling, and experimenting with creative boredom!
Oh and my giveawayends this Friday at 9pm (central)! You still have time!
