Oh my goodness, it's here! I am so excited to share the Outfit of the Day video I shot in New York City for Teen Vogue's YouTube channel! Thanks a million to Mary Kate Steinmiller for asking me to be a part of something so cool.

(Coat: Persunmall, Vest: Urban Outfitters, Leather Shirt: Thrifted, Pants: Forever 21, Boots: Vintage, Scarf: Thrifted, Belt: Target, Watch: Fossil)
Hello, hello! Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday. I recently wore this bundled up look for a full day of classes. I'm currently crazy about my new blush colored coat from Persunmall. It's so incredibly warm, and the texture reminds me of a cuddly teddy bear. So, really, what's not to love? Another favorite from this look are these killer vintage boots from the 1960s. I picked them up a few years ago from an awesome street vendor in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They look like they walked straight out of Woodstock, which is why I instantly knew I had to have them. All in all, this is my ideal outfit for staying warm and being comfortable. Win, win.

A pretty crazy thing recently happened. I received a very sweet email from a reader in Portugal who found my blog through her English textbook. Wait, what?! I would have never in a million years expected to end up in a textbook! It's very rewarding when surprising things like this happen.

(Coat: Free People, Pants: Free People, Boots: Target - Similar: here, Shawl: Vintage, Faux Fur Scarf: Thrifted)
I have to admit, it feels a bit odd posting these snow pictures now considering this week it has been so warm that I have driven with the windows down and convertible top back almost everywhere I've gone. Needless to say, Alabama weather is notoriously unpredictable, and it's not at all out of character to have full out sunshine only a week after having powdery, white snow covering the ground. For this look in the snow, I went with a bit more color. I paired my brocade coat with my ruby red velvet pants and a matching lip color. I also threw on a vintage shawl I picked up back in the fall in New York. To avoid ruining any of my leather shoes in the slush, I went with some black rain boots to match my faux fur black scarf. Sadly, this is the last of my snow outfit posts considering snow doesn't seem to be on the near horizon... But then again, who knows...

(Shirt & Skirt: Vintage Neiman Marcus, Needlepoint coat: Vintage, Scarf: Thrifted, Boots: Target - Similar: here)
Snow! We finally got snow! Surprisingly, where I live was graced with a blanket of snow as far as the eye could see. And yes, as the story goes, when snow hits in the South, the whole town shuts down. Basically, my family and I were stuck in the house for almost an entire week. Though, that was nothing Netflix couldn't fix. After being cooped up in my pajamas for a couple of days, I finally decided to get out in the glorious (but very cold) powdery white snow and snap a few pictures. For this look, I played up the white tones of my surroundings and wore my vintage Neiman Marcus shirt/skirt set. To top the look, I added my 1960s needlepoint coat. I kept with the beige tones in the outfit for my scarf. Then, I threw on some antique jewelry and my rain boots to fight the slush.

(Jacket: Free People, Sweater: Zara, Shirt: Free People, Jeans: Urban Outfitters, Flats: J. Crew Factory, Hat: Forever 21, Belt: Lucky Brand, Necklace: Doxahlogy, Bag: Beara Beara)
My new Bella Vista bag from Beara Beara is the perfect slouchy barrel bag. It's expandable enough to throw all of my stuff in it, but the leather's also soft enough so that if it's not full, it's not stiff. This bag is also a prime example of how to make black and brown look oh so good together. Personally, I've never been a fan or follower of the anti black and brown rule. This casual look was for a day spent in classes, so I paired the bag with my charcoal jeans, black bow flats, a navy striped t, and a beige sweater. I played with a bit of mixed patterns and paired my brocade jacket with the rest of the look. Also, because my roots are in desperate need of a touch-up, I topped the look off with a black hat. Another rough hair day, another hat to save the day. Thank goodness for that, right?
