30 for 30 | 18: Boucle and Fur and Ombre, oh my!

Coat: F21 | Fur vest: CoffeeShop via jcpenney | Sweater: F21 | Jeans: Jolt | Flats: Steve Madden Vegass | Necklace: F21

This morning I was greeted by the Weather Channel app informing me that I was about to wait for the bus while it was three degrees out.

Three degrees. Twenty-nine degrees less than freezing. Three degrees shy of being awarded no degrees, and may God have mercy on your soul.

So I put on a snuggly sweater and a fur vest and a surprisingly warm coat and called it good.
I forgot about the five inches of bare skin on the tops of my feet.
Frostbite is the new fetch. I'm gonna make this happen.

Which reminds me -- because frostbite reminds me of the tropical two-stepping paradise I'd rather be occupying -- I'm slowly sifting through your Texas advice emails - I love all of them! Working on answering each and every one of you little angels. In the meantime, if you think of anything else I should know about the Dallas/Fort Worth area (where to live/where to live only if you want to get shot, where to eat/where to eat only if you want food poisoning) tweet me or email me or send a carrier pigeon.

And when I get there, consider yourselves invited to my housewarming party. Unless I end up living in a cardboard box under a bridge. Then consider yourself rainchecked.

  1. I know how you're feeling, girl...when I woke up this morning it was 8 degrees with a windchill of -6. I was NO a happy girl! Your super-warm outfit is adorable, though! My winter coat? Not so much :)

    1. UGH I HATE THIS WEATHER. I hate being cold and I hate rain and I hate seasons. I think that pretty much eliminates living anywhere on planet Earth

  2. Hahaha, my feet are the first things to get cold, so I think I haven't worn any non-boots for WEEKS now. So many of my outfits would look so much better with cute and dainty flats, but no. the tops of my feet cannot brave the cold. And when I do, I wear nylon trouser socks that hopefully aren't too noticeable, but will provide a smidgen of warmth.

    Three degrees. That should not be allowed.

  4. Nice Billy Madison reference ;)

    I'm with Kimmie, nothing but boots for me here in Nebraska, either. However, in a week I will be moving to California and able to wear my flats again, sooner than anticipated! Win.

  9. I have heard it has been brutal weather in many areas in USA this year. It was -2 degrees in Michigan today. You managed to look gorgeous though. I am in love with your Boucle Coat (it looks so warm) and Ombre Skinny Jeans.

    By the way I featured your Boucle Skirt & Sweater combo as one of My Best Looks, last week. Also, check out what else is new with me. ;-)

    Have a Fab Week Ahead & Stay Warm, Ada. =)
