Remember last week or whenever how it got nice? And then it freaking SNOWED at the end of the week? And it wasn’t even nice snow it was gobs of slush. Gross. I was so ready for the week to end already and that was just the ice(ing) on the cake.

Anyway, I guessss it’s ok because it gave me a chance (maybe my last one of the season) to rock my Topshop from Nordstrom leopard fur coat (last seen here). I wanted to be both cozy and cute as I slid into the weekend and I think I got this.

Now, let’s talk weekend essentials. You know I love a good backpack, but the one I got last year was a little small. Hi gorgeous Eddie Borgo for Target Backpack in Thunder. The backpack so nice that my mom bought me the same one. And if you’re constantly on the go like me, you probably have a snack or two in your bag. When Myprotein asked if I could try some of their products, I jumped at the chance. I ordered Protein Cookies in white almond, Protein Chox in caramel nut, and their 100% peanuts peanut butter. I’ll be honest, the cookies were a little too almond-y for me, it was almost overpowering. And I could really taste whatever extra protein was in it. But the chox were great! They taste like a heartier snickers and are definitely better for your if you’re like me and have a 3:30 in the afternoon chocolate craving. The peanut butter? On apples, one of my favorite snacks/ deserts.

How do you get ready for the weekend?

I was born the day before St. Patrick’s Day, so I’ve combined the two holidays since I can remember. It started with green glittery sprinkled shamrock cookies for my birthday snack in grade school and evolved into (for the past couple of years) sharing a hat at The Madhatter with some close pals on the 17th. This year, I really did attempt to cancel my birthday, which is very unlike me, because I was feeling pretty overwhelmed. But I’m kind of surrounded by a ton of amazing people that wouldn’t let that happen. My parents, my friends- everyone I know has made this month special. I even got to see my favorite band and hang out with them for a bit after the show- that was a present to myself.

Parts of my look today were presents as well. The green dress is from my 21st birthday (edit: no it is not? I def got this dress for my 24th or 25th.) and has obviously become my St. Patrick’s Day dress. The jewelry set from Baublebar was a gift from two of my best friends and the tumbler was from my Little- one of my coworkers calls me kitten and I needed a new tumbler when the lid on my trusty giant mason jar broke. Perfect gift, perfect timing.

Anyway, it’s been a great March, and I’m feeling so lucky.

DC winters come on like sleep and love- very slowly and then allatonce. It seemed to me like we went from 60 to 18 degrees RULL fast and despite the fact that I hate being hot more than anything, being freezing comes in close second. Thankfully, we have warm coats, cozy blankets, Starbs, and adorable sweaters to warm us up.

I also find that clothes are just more fun in the fall/ winter. In summer I’m just like yo pass me a sun dress so I can wear as little as possible with the least amount of effort. In the winter, I get to layer and play around with patterns and textures and FUR. This outfit was actually what I wore for my department Christmas luncheon. Even though it’s casual dress at my firm all week, I wanted to be a little festive. Enter the sweater I knew I HAD to have from Whistle & Wild. I sat on ordering this for a bit until Amanda told me she only had one size left. It’s now sold out! #sadface. But she has a other adorable sweaters- you can check them out here. Don’t forget now, her online store is more like a boutique in that it carries a smaller collection, so if you see something you love, grab it before it’s gone! I love that it’s a sassy sweater and a different color for me. I think I like the burnt orange though!

My coat is from last year, Nordstrom on Black Friday and love at first sight. The earmuffs, despite matching perfectly, were an impulse buy last week. I can’t find them online, but here is a leopard pair and here is a cat ear pair. (Head to the Forever 21 in City Center if you want the exact same that I have!) Basically I love being bundled up as long as my personality can shine through my layers. I think I got that covered with the quirky earmuffs that match my coat.
