When I shoot an outfit for the blog, it’s usually something that I either a) already wore to work that week, or b) have planned to wear later in the week. And due to my busy work schedule/aversion to mornings in general, I can usually only meet with my photographer once a week so we usually will shoot two or three looks before work on Thursday morning. I plan everything (down to jewelry, which I often forget) out the night before to stay organized. And so, I had everything planned for this shoot (of course I was wearing a dress, and for the record no – my outfit did not involve tights) and then it snowed. A lot. Oh. Crap.
In a pinch I ended up just throwing together a few of my favorite things (I live in some combination of flannel shirt / skinny jeans / ankle boots most days since it’s been so cold!) We shot these (literally) right outside my apartment so that we wouldn’t be too cold, alas, we still froze. A brutal reminder that winter is very much here. Really, truly here. Ooph. There will be no more bare legs or light jackets til Springtime, friends… it’s time to bundle things up!!!
Shop the Post: Emerson Fry Jacket (from two years ago) // Vintage Fur Stole (bought at a really cool thrift store back home a few years ago… but check Etsy – they have so many great vintage furs!) // Equipment Flannel Shirt (now on sale!) // James Jeans (so comfy that you can – allegedly – do yoga in them!) // Old Navy Ankle Boots // Elie Tahari Sunglasses // Kate Spade Saturday Bag (c/o)
On an entirely different note… I wanted to tell you about some great sales going on over MLK Weekend. Here are my four faves. Happy Friday!

- J.Crew is offering an extra 40% off sale styles with code SHOPNOW. I’ve had my eye on these cashmere stripes forever and also really love these sandals and this “dazzling” sweater. Lastly, if you need a great classic black bag, this one is really nice.
- Net-a-Porter is offering an additional 20% off of sale styles with code 20SALE. There are so many good things in the sale… many of which they only have one or two sizes… so search by your size and snap up some good deals!
