What I Wore: Week 1

Here are a few of the outfits I've been wearing this first week in January. It's been super cold here in MN! (like -30 wind chill...) So I've been trying to work with more layers. But it was warm enough I got a couple pictures outside. And by warm enough, I mean it wasn't cold enough I'd get frostbite in 5 minutes...

1. Honestly, I'm not sure when I wore this outfit. New Years Day maybe for running errands? Not sure how I like the collared shirt with the scarf, but oh well. You live and learn.


I love Zoe in these next pictures! Whenever we take pictures outside, she goes crazy running around the yard! :)

Jeans: Gap
Chambray: Old Navy
Scarf: Gift
Boots: Gift from hubby when we were engaged :)
Belt: Off another pair of pants

2. I haven't worn a skirt and tights in the winter in a long time, so I decided to wear it on a warmish day before the deep freeze. All day, though, the skirt was riding funny and doing weird things, but maybe it was just clinging to the tights? I don't know.

Skirt: The Loft
Shirt: The Limited
Sweater: Old Navy
Scarf: Gift
Tights: Probably Target
Shoes: Hand-Me-Downs
Earrings: The Limited

3. I talked a little bit here about my quest to find a black vest for winter. But seriously, I guess everyone else had the same idea, because EVERY store was sold out in my size or in the color black! I didn't want to settle on something I only kind of liked and I wanted to get an investment piece (I've already worn it every day since I got it and I know I'll probably wear the heck out of it this winter!), so I finally found this beauty at REI. Even though it isn't down, it keeps me SUPER warm! and it has a nice blue color on the inside. AND it packs conveniently up into a tiny, built-in pocket! I think I got my money's worth for this one. (As you can see, too, Zoe wanted to be featured on my blog! I know I posted a lot of pictures, but she is seriously too funny in all of them not to!)

Jeans: Gap
Shirt: Banana Republic (I do miss the 50% employee discount!)
Boots: Just Fab
Vest: REI
Necklace: Target
