The skirt from this post can now be found on ebay

Remember when I told you about my awesome Loft haul from their awesome sale? It turns out that only about half of it worked out- sizing issues. I’m a petite, through and through. The Petite Diamond Shimmer Skirt was definitely one of the items I kept. I just feel so happy + pretty in it. Isn’t that the point of dressing? Finding something that that makes you feel good?

The skirt kind of speaks for itself, so I didn’t want to do too much with the rest of the outfit. Enter trusty black OTK boots and a black shirt I’ve probably had since high school. The necklace is great though, isn’t it? I also caught that one major sale. I don’t think the Courtney Pearl Bib is available anymore, but the original Courtney can be found here.

My new wristlet will probably be making a lot of appearances. Unfortunately right before New Year’s Eve, I lost my entire wallet with license, house key, credit card, debit card, Metro card, JRINK frequent buyer card… EVERYTHING. I got everything replaced, but the wallet was so perfect that I was hard pressed to find another with the exact shape and functionality with brass hard-wear. Like, I got really weird about how specific I needed this wallet to be. I wanted it to unzip all the way around so I could swipe my Metro card easily. I ended up finding this new one at Target, of all places. This was after checking the usual suspects- Nordstrom, Macy’s, even Kate Spade.

I’m loving these little rooftop photo shoots… even if I do freeze.

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?

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.
