Nothing Makes Me Stronger.

Hey guys! Such a nice sunny day today! More of the same coming tomorrow and it's the weekend so I couldn't be happier!

This coat is incredibly impractical for winter but it's great for warmer days like this.

What else? I'm still in the process of trying to create a winter wonderland in my own home. I'll keep you posted. We're having a Christmas party at our house next Saturday so I'm definitely looking for fun ideas for that.

Here's what I wore today.

Sweater: Fancy Treehouse
Skirt: Fancy Treehouse
Blouse: Fancy Treehouse
Shoes & Bag: Vintage
Coat: Anthro

Anyway, I don't have much to say today that's interesting (not that I ever do...haha) so you should entertain me. Tell me something fun. :)



Photography: Andrew Nuding


I wish I could remember exactly where I first saw Andrew Nuding's photography so I could give credit where credit is due, but I can't so it will have to suffice to say that I'm quite taken with these images.  Right now I'm partial to the ones that portray a seemingly cold, grey winter sky.  It seems Old Man Winter has finally arrived and I'm digging in my heels in preparation to ride out another long winter.  These photos are serving to remind me that I can do so in a fashionable way and not just wrapped in flannel pajamas and quilts as I'm tempted to do.

Lighting of the White House Christmas Tree

The First Family lit the Annual White Christmas Tree on the Ellipse last night, joined by Carson Daly, Ellie Goulding and the cast of the Muppets. Braving the cold, the First Lady wears a light mix wool boucle coat and a vibrant orange scarf. Daughters Sasha and Malia looked as chic as ever, wearing a navy military inspired coat and a black coat with red edging respectively.

Hiking Boots

I've been thinking about a pair of completely practical, sturdy boots for stomping around town or the woods.  Luckily I found a pair of brown hiking boots with red laces in the boy's section at the thrift store but if I hadn't, I may have sprung for this pair or this pair.  I plan on wearing them with rolled up jeans and chunky cableknit sweaters for comfy days.
