Well, the Blizzard of ’15 hit here in Charlotte and we got 3 inches! I am not kidding, this is serious! Schools and businesses close down. What doesn’t is my ability to present you with a cozy winter look for the day!
My dog’s eyes filled with wonder much like the kindergarten kids I used to teach the first time we had snow! What was that white stuff. I remember Truffles, when we went to visit my mom in Pittsburgh one year. There must have been 12 inches on the ground, and besides not being able to find a patch of grass to go,she went inside and found mom’s green carpeting…problem solved! Now, Gibson doesn’t have that problem,but they do get excited to get their little coats on when they have to go outside. Much like their mamma!
It was cold out there, so I decided to wear my tweed black and marroon flirty skirt, with leather detailing for the pockets. I paired it with a grey cardigan with embellishment of silver beads, which I loved as it made it look vintage and really added to the cardigan itself. Having about 4 wool coats in Charlotte is plenty, ( this is not counting the leather jackets I own) but a light winter coat is really all that is needed, so I wanted to wear my black pea coat with this styling. Lastly, my Born burgundy fur lined winter leather boots were what I needed to complete the outfit and keep my tooties totally warm! Adding my vintage earrings from Etsy, added to my vintage-inspired look.
I am not a cold weather person at all, but I will say, especially when seeing other’s blog posts, the snow does make for pretty pictures.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
