when life gives you -12° temperatures [with a “feels like -38º”], you get really bundled up. or you stay inside. I’m sticking with the latter. the weather has been awful. although we’ve not gotten much snow, the low temperatures are enough to cancel schools and keep people indoors.

a chunky, knit infinity scarf is the way to go; it’s on trend + will do it’s job keeping you warm. and thank goodness for embellished + graphic sweatshirts. they’re essential for any cold-weather outfit because they’re comfortable, and they’re fun. also don’t forget to add a little color as to not blend in with the snow.

keep warm!

happy monday.

get the look.

the week in photos.

happy november.

as always, I cannot believe another month has flown by. and sadly, we’re in “acceptable snow weather”. which means as an iowan I am no longer allowed to complain if it snows. because it’s practically winter. on that rather sad note, [I’m not so much a winter person ..unless it’s seen only through a window, while in sweats, under a blanket, drinking a hot drink in front of the fire. or on christmas] let’s reminisce about the month of october.
