This is my last outfit post from my visit to Massachusetts, so there won't be anymore magical snowy backgrounds after this (I know, bummer). If you take a look at my past few outfits, you might notice that I had to borrow some essential clothing items during my stay like boots, gloves, and coats. I can get away with not owning legit snow boots (#becauseTexas), but a coat? I couldn't believe I forgot to bring a simple coat to one of the coldest places in the country right now. Thankfully my hosts lent me anything I needed, but it was a major doh moment for me! Oh well. It's nice to be back in a winter where a coat is pretty much always optional (again, #becauseTexas).

Outfit details:
Banana Republic turtleneck
H&M grey jeans
DSW boots (gift)
thrifted scarf
F21 beanie
borrowed peacoat
borrowed gloves
Lancôme lipstick in "All Done Up"

After being stuck inside for a few days, the weather in Massachusetts was finally bearable enough to go hang out outside for awhile (a high of 25 degrees was now considered warm). We went for a long walk around the neighborhood, marveled at the insane icicles that formed along the houses, and I learned how to make a snowball. This casual stroll was probably the most exercise I had gotten all week, haha. I also added that last photo just to give y'all an idea of how crazy high the snow banks were. I've said this before, but I'll say it again: I don't know how you northerners deal. If I lived in a place with harsh winters that lasted for months, I don't think I would ever leave my room. At least snow makes a pretty backdrop for photos though, right?

Snapshots | February



Is it just me or does February always seem to fly by? That's a good thing though because at this point I am so ready for spring. Plus March is the month of SXSW which I have been looking forward to since the last one ended! February was good though; I cut my hair, had a nice Valentine's Day, enjoyed a week off from work, traveled to Massachusetts and played in the snow, and I'm finally starting the process of moving into my own place. Hopefully March has even more good things in store for me! How was your month?

Wine, burgundy, maroon, oxblood... I literally don't know what to call it anymore because the fashion blogging world keeps changing it up on me. But whatever you wanna name this color, I love it. I wear it probably more than any other color in my wardrobe; it's even my favorite shade of lipstick! To say I'm obsessed is probably an understatement. You may be thinking, "It's a little too much" but for me it's not enough! If I owned burgundy denim and boots, I probably would have thrown those on too. I'm telling y'all, I have a problem. What color(s) do you always seem to gravitate toward?

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have been caught in a frozen tundra for the past week up in Massachusetts. Everyone thought I was crazy when I said I was heading to the northeast during the crazy snowstorms they've been getting lately, but I had bought the plane tickets for cheap back in November, so there was no way I was backing out. 

I have visited New England during the winter before, so I'm no stranger to the snow and cold weather, but wow. This winter was intense. I couldn't believe the amount of snow that had piled up (and continued to...) along the streets and how physically painful the wind chill became. Needless to say, I stayed indoors the majority of the time. At least it gave me an excuse to binge-watch my favorite TV shows, so no complaints here!

Edit: This also just happens to be the outfit I wore for Valentine's Day this year. The red scarf & lipstick was my best shot at looking as festive as I could, ha!
