I am slightly upset because I finished reading A Discovery of Witches yesterday, and I was looking forward to my morning walk to the library to check out the second book in the series, then snow happened. And my library closed for the day because of the inclement weather. BOO HISS. I woke up to eight inches of snow and some pretty scary winds which means I'm gonna stay indoors today where it's cozy and a fresh cup of tea is readily available.

Do you like my flower clippie? A few weeks ago, I went through my craft supplies and found a ton of yarn. I thought I'd make a few flowers for myself, but then the flowers kept on multiplying. That and I can't not  be busy. I'm always doing something or else I'd be extremely bored. 

These photos are actually from a while back when it was looking almost like spring here in the Midwest, and then Mother Nature decided to mess with our brains. Despite the cold, however, I remain true to my knee highs and dresses because they're a pretty darn comfortable combination. It may not be ideal for trudging in the snow and ice, but hey, the things we do to look cute.

  1. Yeah, we dumped on with snow too. I wish I could stay home :) I like your collar on your dress and your manicure. Is that the crackle nail polish? Heather

  6. Oh wow, I'm sorry for your weather. :( My friends have been Instagraming "this is why we live in LA" pictures and I was like, NO, I WANT THE COLD. I hope you get to visit the library soon, I know how it feels to not be able to continue reading a book!

  7. Stupid snow. We're getting flurries here, but nothing sticking. It's most definitely not spring, though, I don't care what the calendar says.

  10. I love that grey dress! I am in some serious need of some new dresses for myself.

    It got ridiculously cold here and normally we're close to 75 by this time in Memphis and we're in the low 40s with snow today!

  14. I don't know if it's a deliberate technique or the lighting or not but your lip colour has this cool depth to it which I love. The colour is gorgeous.
