First Real Snow

22 January 2011













As promised, here are some photos of the snow we got
two days ago! I had two snow days, and they were both
fabulous. The first snow day, I had a mini-party at my
house and would-you-rathered for about 3 hours and
drank wine. Yesterday my classes were canceled, yet I was
still able to get around, so me and my boyfriend got breakfast
at this amazing local bread company, thrifted, looked for
records, and looked at cute cats. I wore this outfit above
on the random adventures I had yesterday. I think I got
some odd looks, and even my boyfriend said I look like
a "spring flower" or something like that. I just think colors
look best against the beautiful white snow!

Anyways...I hope everyone has a lovely weekend

PS- Every single thing I am wearing, I have worn before
on this blog. With a little innovation, you can be a
fashion blogger who doesn't have to go shopping
all the time :)

Laura @ The World Looks Red said...

I really love the colors in this outfit; especially this shade of pink. Snow looks pretty BUT I'm really really happy that the snow has melted here. Hopefully it won't come back, I need it to be spring now!

Heather said...

Sometimes I don't understand why people think winter attire should be gray and dull. Personally, I would rather see pretty colors to contrast with the gray weather. You look beautiful in these pinks and you make me think of Spring, which is something I need to be reminded of!

Lindsay said...

i thought i had to wait for spring to wear floral shorts and semi-sheer blouses, but obviously i am wrong! you look gorgeous! i love your hair in that topknot, it looks so nice and messy i can never seem to get mine to look as good as yours haha. the colors here are so beautiful, really this is such a perfect look!

About London, I'm still not there. I'm having a little vacation at my boyfriend's, just before I move to London. There's still some stuff I need to take care of before going there permanently.

vogueish said...

Loving the outfit and you look so cute!

Kate said...

I absolutely love that you chose to wear such spring like colors on a snow day! This is good inspiration for me, as I tend to drift into mostly grays & blacks this time of year, with colors being mostly pops of red but I imagine this would be such a pick me up on a dreary winter day to be decked out in pretty pastels & florals! Love it!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

that pink blouse is soooo pretty! i thrifted one similar not too long ago ... i may have to do a little "spring flower in the snow" look myself!

Michelle said...

Absolutely beautiful look. The colours remind me of marshmallows! Which is a totally good thing, especially for such a dreary season.

Mich said...

And the remixing is what i love best about your blog! You look so cute!

Mila Rock Baby said...

gawd, you are so shallow. why do you base your being on clothes??? that concept is mundane and ridiculous. you basically live to wear clothes, what a shameful existence. maybe you need real therapy, not retail therapy.

jamie-lee said...

You look absolutely gorgeous! I love the blush colourtones :) Wish it snowed here.

And it's funny you mention wearing those on your blog before - I was reading some articles earlier today about how much financial trouble some bloggers can get into

Style-Pursuit said...

What a cute outfit!
The bad thing is that my mom used to have a similar blouse and I cut it into shreds to dress up my Barbie doll... :o))

I love the colors and tones of your outfit! :) Great ensemble.

And I remember a long time back you were selling your old canon camera; i know it's been ages but i was wondering if that's still up for sale? :)

Pretty as a picture. And you got all those looks because your outfit so gorgeous. Great message at the end about wardrobe remixing. Sometimes it's hard to resist buying more and more.

I love the floral print of the shorts, such a beautiful contrast with the surrounding white.

Oh, Bonnie. How is it possible your outfits take my breath away EVERY time? Loving this. I have similar items that I could use to mimic this look but sometimes I feel like I can't pull it off or feel super self conscience that other people will think I'm like a crazy grandma-looking lady walking down the street hahaha. They just aren't on our level ;)
