Winter has finally arrived here in Charlottesville and with that came a giant blizzard that kept me way from work for almost 3 days! And I must admit that during those wonderful snow days, I went into hibernation, which pretty much means I wore nothing but leggings and sweatshirts all day long! But now that I am back to work it is time to step up my game a bit!
I am definitely a dress girl, no doubt about it. They are so easy and comfortable, but for some reason when you wear a dress everyone thinks that means you have your life together, which is perfectly fine with me! However dresses in the winter can be pretty tricky since it is so cold and they don’t provide all that much layering!
I found the perfect little dress that gives you great shape, it is fun & flirty, but has a sweater material to keep you nice and warm all day! To be honest, I bought this dress, returned it, and bought it back because I loved it that much! The best news is that it is now on sale for under $100!
We really can’t deny that Taylor Swift has been KILLING IT with her style these days! Whether she is on the red carpet or going to the grocery store, her outfits are always on point! So of course I had to do another look for less when it comes to this super casual but sleek look she rocked! It’s perfect for those chilly days that you have tons of errands to get done as it has lots of layers but isn’t too bulky as you move around.
Another day, another snow storm for Southern Virginia…. Here I was hoping that Spring was right around the corner. I do have to admit though, the first flurries of snow are one of my favorite things. They just feel so magical that it’s difficult not to love them, until they turn into a foot of snow and everything shuts down.
Thank goodness I have this amazing knit headband by Monroe & Harlow to keep my tiny ears nice and toasty! I have been getting a lot of use out of this bad boy throughout this winter, it is truly one of the best gifts I’ve received (shout out to my big sisters!) Monroe & Harlow have so many styles and prints to choose from, y’all should definitely go check them out! Especially (hopefully) with Spring coming soon, they have tons of beautiful floral prints that are light weight and perfect to accessorize those sun dresses!

I can’t be the only one over the “snow” already. In Virginia it isn’t even snow anymore, it’s completely frozen solid…(fun fact: I busted my butt straight on the snow and already have a bruise.) Well any who, today was the first day that I made my way out of the house and completely some errands which of course led me to Target. This has to be one of my favorite outfits. It is super comfy but still looks like I have my life together & haven’t been spending the past 4 days in bed watching Criminal Minds on Netflix!

Recently, I have been really loving adding touches of bohemian chic to my wardrobe. Celebrities like Sienna Miller and Vanessa Hudgens have been rocking the boho look for years and know how to go all out or just have a slight boho vibe to their looks. I was recently on pinterest and found a photo of Sienna Miller looking so classic and cool that I had to try my own version of it!
Here is the image of the lovely Sienna that sparked my interest!

This snow situation is make me long for spring weather! I personally do not get a spring break due to graduating college 2 years ago, but that doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through you all! Now I wasn’t one who went on crazy trips during my break but I did have a goal for things I wanted to get done! So here are 5 things that I enjoyed doing during my spring breaks and you possibly could too!
1.) Read a book that YOU want, not anything assigned for class. When I was in college I lost the desire to read due to all the chapters necessary for classes. So when I am given a time all to myself I really like to put myself back in a world where reading isn’t just about education but enjoyment!
2.) Plan a day-date! There is nothing better than not having anything to do in the middle of the day! Take advantage of that! Plan a beach picnic with friends that includes a game of volleyball or corn hole! Anything that gets you out of the house and away from Netflix will work just fine!
3.) Eat at your favorite local restaurant. One that you can’t get anywhere else but at home! For me, it’s Taste Unlimited! I used to work there all through high school and it is the best place to get a gourmet sandwich! And sometimes they will still give me my employee discount depending on who’s working, so that’s always a plus!
4.) Having a family day! My family is everything, my biggest support system so of course I want a special day to just be with them. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but just have everyone together under the same roof. I suggest a big of family game night to get the excitement going!
5.) Spend an entire day in bed! Preferably one that is closest to the end of your break. When I was in college, I found that once spring break ended, school became crazy busy. So take a day to just be lazy. Watch that Vanderpump Rules Marathon, I don’t care!
