Bye, Winter. It’s Been Real.

It is officially the last day of winter! I think I speak for all of us when I say: Good riddance. But I must admit, I did cozy up to some great outfits during these past few months. Just for kicks, I decided to choose my top 10 favorites to share today. I hope you brought your snow boots, because we’re taking a walk down Memory Lane.

Fur and plaid: a combo I saw on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try // Being a ballerina at Barristers’ Ball // Something about this outfit gave me a whole new appreciation for last year’s coat

Wore this to see the Christmas tree lighting downtown // It was incredibly frigid this day but I managed some cute and colorful layers // First time wearing my OTK boots and it was an instant friendship // Sparkles and leather for NYE

That day it felt like spring in December and then it all went downhill // Letting my accessories do the talking //  A really fun outfit for a really fun night

What’s your favorite?

Happy (almost) spring!

It has been a very silver white winter, and it needs to MELT INTO F$%&ING SPRING ALREADY. I knew it was coming, but waking up to cold and snow yesterday was still so hard after 2 days in a row of 60+ degrees. And it wasn’t just snow – it was huge flakes of really wet snow. And it was windy. So walking outside was kind of like being in a snowball fight with Buddy the Elf. It’s mid-March. #snoverit

Even though the weather was totally inappropriate, at least this top kinda looks like it has cute little snowflakes on it. I do love a theme. But this top is still SUPPOSED to be for SPRING. I want to wear it on its own with a floral pencil skirt and nude pumps. One day soon…

So I was heating up my lunch at school earlier this week and a girl I didn’t know walked up and asked, “Are you Sarah?” Turns out she’s a first-year student who got paired up with me for some help studying. How did she know who I was? “They told me you wear a lot of hats.”

Really? When did I become Hat Girl? I mean I don’t wear hats that often, do I?

A couple weeks ago when it was negative a million degrees, I assumed this “polar vortex” thing was a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. Apparently it is a twice-in-a-month occurrence. Awesome. The first time around, I was lucky enough to be able to stay safely inside. This time I actually have class and other things to do. In addition to what you can see above, I’m also wearing tights and socks under my pants. (Let me tell you: it makes a big difference!)

And because I’m amazing, I managed to pile on all these layers without wearing any black! That’s right, no polar vortex is going to stop me from completing my challenge. Who else is doing the Black Out challenge? Be sure to share your outfit photos on Twitter or Instagram and tag it #BlackOutStyle. Nicole and I will share the names (and links for bloggers) of participants at the end of the week!

Greetings from Sarah’s couch. Sarah is deep into studying for finals. Her brain can only handle very short sentences. And apparently she’s speaking in third person now.

Anyway…this is what I wore last Thursday, which was the last day of class for the semester. Why so fancy, you ask? I had to give a presentation, and I always think if you look smart, you sound smart. But I also had to wear this outfit for 10 hours, so that’s why I went for a top that feels like a sweatshirt, a stretchy pencil skirt, and low wedges. See – I’m all kinds of smart. Now I just need to channel that smartness into the 4 exams I have to take between now and the 18th! Wish me luck!

I Wear Your Grandma’s Clothes; I Look Incredible

So what did we learn yesterday? We learned that I am really ready for spring. What are we going to learn today? We are going to learn how I entertain myself (clothes-wise, that is) while waiting for spring.

A girl with an overstuffed closet like mine always has some things she doesn’t get around to wearing for a while. So for my entertainment, I’ve been seeking out the winter-only items in my wardrobe that still haven’t stretched their legs (or their sleeves I guess) this season. This sweater is one of those items.

I remember thinking it was the greatest thing ever when I bought it, but I guess my tastes have changed a bit and I just don’t get as excited to wear it as I used to. I wish it were a little longer and looser so I could do that oversized-on-purpose look. Instead it’s very fitted and conservative and grandma-ish. But looking at these photos, I still kind of think it’s cute. Plus who doesn’t like grandmas?

So what do you think: Keep this sweater around for next year, or should this be its last hurrah?

I just grabbed this skirt and these shades from Madewell a couple days ago (and when I say “grabbed,” I don’t mean I stole them – I literally did grab at these sunglasses as soon as I walked in the door and saw them because they’re so freaking awesome). I’m pretty excited about the skirt because I’ve been wanting a black and white striped skirt for awhile, but it’s hard to find one that doesn’t make my lower half look like a bloated upside-down pear. I like this one because it doesn’t taper into the knee, and I think the way the side panels break up the lines creates an optical illusion that’s a little more slimming.

In fact, I love this skirt so much that I’m making it my Take One, Pass it On item, so you’ll see it again tomorrow! (In case you forgot already, this cardigan is my repeat from yesterday.)

Controlling the Weather

Yesterday was nice and toasty, all the way up in the mid 20s! As you can see, I got a little braver than yesterday and went outside, but I didn’t get quite brave enough to take my coat all the way off.

There was supposed to be a chance for snow showers all day, so I prepared by wearing my rain boots with fleece socks. And of course there was not a single flake. I know they say you can’t control the weather, but in my experience you can. For example, if there’s a chance of snow, the best way to keep it from snowing is to wear footwear appropriate for snow. If I had worn suede flats, there would have been a blizzard I’m sure.
