Winter has finally decided to show up. Better late than never, I guess. I swear, I live in the most bipolar state of America! Of course it would be hot during our actual winter, but for spring break? Now that seems like the perfect time to have some cold and rainy days. Great logic.

I'm so glad I invested in a pair of rainboots a couple years ago. They have saved me from cold wet feet more times than I can count, and they're in my favorite print! I could have gone the "all matching" route with my houndstooth scarf to go with the boots, but I thought I'd switch it up a little with some stripes. Same color, different print! What do you think?

  2. Do we live in the same state? Ha, because I could swear that I live in the most bipolar place in the US! I'm telling you, it once snowed on July 4th...now that is memorable. And during spring, you don't want to know how often it shifts from snowing one day to sunny and warm the next. Crazy!
    Haha, anyway, love this outfit, you mixed prints so effectively. Those rainboots are too cute <3

  5. I love this cozy winter look! I agree, the houndstooth scarf would have been overkill, but the stripes look great. I also loooove how you wore legwarmers under your boots!

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog!

  14. You are a layer queen!! Wow! Very cool. You're very beautiful! I love your smile. Beautiful nails too :)

    Btw, I saw your comment on Linda's blog (The Lovely Memoir) regarding labels on your make up brushes. One thing you can do is tape different color post-its on the ends. Just trim them so they're a little shorter and then tape it on! The colors are very bright so it'll be easy to distinguish quick!
