Snowy Sunday


Coat: Forever 21 // Scarf: Target // Cardigan: H&M (old) // T-Shirt: J.Crew // Leggings: American Apparel // Purse: Therapy // Boots: Sam & Libby // Ring: Julie Vos

Last Sunday, we woke up to birds chirping and a dreamy dusting of snow, so we shrugged on our coats and headed off to brunch. Two new breakfast spots have opened up in town over the past few months, effectively doubling our brunching options. Hooray!

We decided to check out Pullman, an upscale diner with an open kitchen and some beautiful red leather banquets. One bloody Mary, a bowl of cheesy grits and some delicious house-cured bacon later, we headed home via College Green and the scene was just too pretty not to snap some pictures. Next up on the brunch tour: Ride.


Navy + Black

Jacket: Zara (old) // Scarf: Master Peace // Hat: Forever 21 // Sweater: J.Crew // Pants: American Apparel // Boots: Sam & Libby // Bag: 3.1 Philip Lim for Target // Earrings: BaubleBar // Necklace: BaubleBar // Ring: Stella & Dot // Bracelet: Julie Vos

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s hard for me to find hats that fit my extra-large head. But on a recent trip to Forever 21, I had a bit of a Cinderella moment with the lovely wool fedora pictured above. Picture this: I’m waiting in a long line to check out. I’m browsing the displays near the registers and notice a lone abandoned hat. I absently try on said hat. The second I put it on, I knew it fit perfectly. A quick glance in the mirror confirmed that it would indeed be coming home with me.

I love how structured the hat is, and I love the way it effortlessly combines black and navy. I decided to carry that color scheme throughout this errand-running outfit that—thanks to serious statement jewelry and a bit of faux fur—feels as luxurious as it is comfortable. Another of my recent accessory obsessions? These new BaubleBar eyelash ear jackets. I love that they add a unique wink to every outfit I wear, no matter the style.

Another Christmas (and New Year!) has come and gone, and again I’m wishing for just a bit more of the holiday season before entering the cold, cold months of January and February. My family has always gone all out for Christmas: freshly cut trees, sugar cookie decorating, never-ending snacks, candlelit Christmas Eve service, and, of course, loads of presents. It’s a time of year I greatly cherish.

This year, I was so excited that I got to introduce Max to the joy of Christmas with my family. Sadly, we didn’t get to take part in our usual double celebration with family in California, but we did get to spend a whole week in Texas with all of my siblings (plus a new brother-in-law)! Since my sister Sarah has been living in Egypt for the past year and my brother is still in school in Virginia, getting everyone together was no small feat.

Spending quality time with my family is always my favorite part of Christmas, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t look forward to exchanging presents every year. Beyond the pure thrill of ripping open beautifully wrapped gifts, I like that each time I wear earrings from my sister or a coat from my mom, I think of them.

On the day after Christmas, I took several of my newest wardrobe items out for a spin at my favorite mall in San Antonio for some sale shopping. A preppy tassel adorns this structured Kate Spade tote that’s perfect for carrying my camera and all of my essentials (plus all-important extra layers). And I couldn’t be happier with this cheerful pink cocoon coat that will brighten even the drabbest of winter days when I’m back in Iowa.
