snow day

It’s quite an exciting day here in Alabama–IT SNOWED! It’s been years since I last saw snow, so of course I was delighted by the winter weather. You can kind of tell in my face in the picture below!

I used the opportunity to cuddle up in my reindeer sweater and Hunter boots. I didn’t really do much all day, but it sure was fun to build snowmen and drink hot coffee.

the shearling vest

I actually thrifted this vest quite some time ago, but I haven’t worn it because I didn’t really know how to wear it. You would think it would be relatively easy to style, given its neutral color…but I just couldn’t find the right pieces in my closet. I recently acquired both this ivory blouse and the tan mule booties that happen to match the vest perfectly, so I seized the opportunity to try out the combination.

It’s pretty simple, but I really like the look. It was perfect for a day of grocery shopping (amongst crazy pre-Thanksgiving crowds!) and cooking. But now I need more inspiration…how would you wear a shearling vest?
