Blustery

Another day, another snow storm. We were hit with a blast of winter weather today. What else is new?

I've actually lost count of just how many times we've been under a "storm watch" of some kind this winter. 

The blustery conditions made for an extra long commute into work this morning with good old fashioned bumper to bumper traffic. If I wasn't so stubborn, I would have worked from home.

I know I preach about putting some effort in to feel better about tackling the day and all, but these rules go out the window in this kind of weather. I sacrificed my hair and make up this morning to leave for work early. No photos to be taken in these conditions!

The good news is, I was able to take some photos the other day, when I was wearing my favourite black vegan leather pants. Side note - I love that it's called "vegan leather" instead of "pleather" these days. Classy.

All of the spring clothes are beautiful (and tempting), but I'm just not feeling it yet, so I decided to keep things pretty...black. I seem to gravitate to mostly black when I wear those pants. Makes me feel edgy, I guess.  















OUTFIT DETAILS:

Cardigan - Free People (old) // Tank - Small local boutique, brand unknown // Pants - H&M
Necklace - Brandy Melville //  Boots - Frye // Bag - Roots // Scarf - Target

Tell me, are you as "over it" as I am?!

  1. Ughhh I am so done with winter. Bring me some sun already!
    As for your outfit, I am kind of in love with your pants! I've heard "vegan leather," "faux leather," and of course, "pleather," but I really like the term "vegan leather" the best :]

    1. Tell me about it. Like, is it so much to ask for sun? I just want to be able to wear sunglasses again!

      It's all about the marketing! I mean, why buy pleather when you can buy vegan leather?

    1. Wellies are more fun than snow boots...but I still prefer the sun. Sounds like you do too.

  17. wow it looks so pretty there with all the snow! Snow looks so pretty, but I know from experience how awful it is to have to walk through and clean!! We just got hit with a snow storm recently too and another one is expected early/mid next week!!
    You look adorable by the way! I love the clarity of your pictures~!

  18. I am SO over winter. The only thing getting me through it is the excuse to buy more boots.

  29. I'm not over winter because we just finally got snow. I love snow. But I am over dressing in winter clothes. I just want to be able to not wear socks. ha.

  31. That snow! I don't blame you for not venturing outside for pictures, although you look 10x happier than I would be in similar conditions. Vegan leather sounds a lot nicer than pleather, which is probably why marketing departments switched it up.
