Lately I’ve been operating under the theory that if I wear a lot of florals, it’ll make spring come. That’s how weather works, right? 😉
I wore this outfit for a short nature walk over the weekend, where there was plenty of snow but also plenty of sun. We also saw a few cute dogs, including a tiny lab/husky mix puppy with one blue eye and one brown eye!

Blog note: I haven’t been doing Fatshion February posts for the past few days because I’ve been sick, booo. I’m hoping to be better, and back to daily outfit pictures, within the next day or two.

Dress + leggings + cardigan/shrug/blazer = pretty much my winter uniform. Dress: Perceptions via either a clothing swap or the Big Thrifty, leggings: Re/Dress, shoes: L.L. Bean, shrug: SimplyBe, necklace: gift shop at Disney World, earrings: really old I don’t love this dress, but it’s a good basic work dress, so I end up wearing it a lot.

SO MUCH SNOW.
I took a walk around the neighborhood to check out the scene…
Where’s my ball? ….I think it’s under three feet of snow…

The first snowstorm of the season is always exciting, when it’s sparkly and powdery and soft.
I know it’ll turn into dirty slush eventually, cold wet feet, slippery ice…
But for now, it’s beautiful. It’s a cause for celebration, and drinking peppermint hot chocolate.
I did some decorating last night.
This morning, I broke out my beloved faux leopard coat, which my mom found for $12 at a thrift store. Yes, she has magic thrifting powers.
