daily outfit: the “these boots are supposed to be hibernating" edition.

i thought i’d seen the last of my favorite leather boots until i woke up to 30 degree temps.

just like that, they’re re-entered my life…along with a dress that may or may not be testing the boarding school skirt limits (it’s below my finger tips!).

hello, wednesday. i’m glad you’re here.

daily outfit: the “it feels good to have a [little] tan" edition.

this morning’s 6:15 am office arrival was made a little easier thanks to a simple outfit & a slight tan.

there’s something about coming back from vacation and realizing you did, in fact, receive some sun kissing that naturally lightens the mood.

plus, a bright pink cardigan & a gold giraffe necklace naturally make me happy. 

now, where’s my coffee?

daily outfit: the “Baby B’s Baby Shower" edition.

yesterday morning, i had the honor of attending Ashley's baby shower at Rick’s Boatyard Cafe.

close to thirty ladies came together to celebrate the baby boy who will be lovingly welcomed this July.

it was a beautiful celebration…one where floral pants seemed totally necessary.

i’m thinkin’ imma need some spring floral on my stems.

Jocelyn: [at a board meeting over the April issue] Well… they’re showing a lot of florals right now, so I was thinking… 
Miranda Priestly: Florals? For spring? Ground breaking. 

yup, doin’ it.

daily outfit: the “purple poncho” edition.

a few weeks ago, Mama & i stopped at the outlets down in Edinburgh en route to Louisville.

always one willing to add some spring color to an otherwise neutral look, i slipped on this ralph lauren lavender poncho & kind of didn’t hate it.

i sent a text to Ashley who confirmed it would be a good option for a rainy day,

& turns out, rain is indeed in today’s forecast.

never the less, after a month having passed since the original procurement, i still don’t hate it, & in fact, with all black, i kind of love it.

daily outfit: the “Denim & Supply" edition

this one of my favorite spring button downs.

it’s a thicker linen & it’s plaid. these two details alone urge me to whip out this beaut for a 50+ degree day.

done & done.

daily outfit: the “still sweater dress weather" edition.

deciding to wear a sweater dress was the only appropriate thought that crossed my mind when i heard the weather man announce the 18 degree temperature outside.

at least it’s sunny?
