my outfit: winter chic!

Welcome back for another installment of, ummmm, "me, in the snow".  

So original, huh?  I have been trying to think of an un-snowy place to go for pictures... but besides the grocery store and a plowed parking garage. I got nuthin'.  So you get my driveway, AGAIN.

The good news is that the sun has been a little shiny here in old West Michigan, a rarity indeed... so at least with all the cold and snow, we have a sliver of happiness.  And some Vitamin D. And a chance to wear sunglasses, because really, don't you just love to wear sunglasses?

This past weekend I SERIOUSLY cleaned out my closet (seen here) I have about half the clothes now that I did in that post and it feels SO good. I kept the stuff I really truly love and wear.  I haven't actually gotten rid of the stuff yet though.  Sometimes I go over board and get rid of stuff I shouldn't have, so this time I just put it in a storage bin in the basement and I figure if I haven't 'missed' it in a few months then it's fair game to go. {fear not... no shoes were banished in the closet cleaning!}

It almost feels a little like the 30/30 Challenge... with fewer pieces to choose from, it makes getting dressed easier.  Now if the weather would just make it easier to get dressed then I would be set like a jet.

So, um, that's about all that's happening with me these days.  Pretty exciting, huh?

Love the idea of lace under cozy clothes. Hey, I love the snow. Living in the sunshine state where you literally can not drive without sunglasses it is great to see snow in the photos.
Nice with the closet cleanning. I do the same thing get rid of too much stuff than regret it so great idea with storage bin. I have been moving stuff to my kids' closets.

I love the snowy shots. The bluish hue from the snow works beautifully with your outfit. Those boots look super duper cozy.

I have those same boots! I too love sunglasses. Can't wait until we get some sunshine around here!

Les said...

Love that top and sweater combo!

Meggy said...

Winter chic, indeed! Adore that white/ivory lace top. So pretty with the gray sweater shrug, and yet cozy looking.

I'm in the same boat with the snow. We got ANOTHER 3 inches last night. It's white everywhere, and as pretty as it can be, I'm sick of it.

I cleaned out my closet last night too. I took my old stuff to the Good Will this morning. I should've done what you did and held on to a few things for awhile before giving them away...just to make sure. I have had those moments in the past when I went looking for something and then remembered that I gave it away. :(

Fun boots and scarf. I wish it snowed here...

Nothing is better than a good closet purge! I've got to do that in our for sale house - I haven't worn most of that stuff in almost 3 years. Ebay here I come - lol!

i really like the top with the jeans & the boots. i don't think that would be a pairing that i would ever gravitate towards...but it looks like it's a runway look. so cute!

i love your driveway! we don't have one so get out there & think how jealous i am of your really long driveway whenever you get photographed!
