Winter has officially arrived. This is not a drill, winter has officially arrived. The day after returning from Disneyland, we were hit with a snow/ice blast. Two thumbs down, but I'd give it more if I had more thumbs to give.
Luckily the ice melted enough for us to take a little trip up north to attend my friend's LuLaRoe Pop Up Launch, which is in the same town as the coffeeshop that carries one of my most FAVORITE coffee beverages – the Almond Joy Mocha. Normally I get them iced, but since EVERYTHING ELSE WAS ICED, I went with a HOT Almond Joy Mocha for the first time… and I was not disappointed!
Also – because of the weather, I found myself snowed/iced in at Justen's parents house with the suitcase of clothes I'd taken to California. Not only was I weather stir crazy, but I was wardrobe stir crazy.
I finally made it out, though. and this is what I wore.
I like that it's wintery but not over the top. Plus there are sparkles on my head and around my neck <3 I also tend to overheat when I dress warm – anyone else find that? Like I wear a cozy sweater but once I start moving around and going from being outside to being in a warmer inside, I feel sweaty and gross. But seirously, anyone else? I guess that's what coats are for, but I don't really wear coats.
Here are the outfit deets:
Shoes: Mudd (similar) / Jeans: Mossimo via Goodwill (similar) / Shirt: Old Navy (exact) / Scarf: H&M via Value Village (similar) / Bow: Forever 21 (similar)
Almond Joy Mocha: Kalama Koffee 🙂
Let's be real about this for a minute. If you've watched my blog at all over the past year or so you might remember that last year I was at my all-time low, weight loss. Those pictures are kind of hard for me to post because they're dangerously close to my all-time high. I've just been undisciplined and kind of apathetic about my weight/health. I've been noticing it in the way my clothes fit (lol or don't) but lately I've seen it in pictures.
I always think "I'll start when…" or "First I need to finish eating this thing and then I'll start…." but the reality is, it's just like my attempts at debt repayment. It's a small, daily choice. and the past year, I've chosen gluten and dairy and sugar. and I guess I thought it wasn't a huge deal, and I thought nobody would ever know… but like Shakira sang, hips don't lie… amiright?!
As I've been preparing my blog for the upcoming year, I've toyed with the idea of having a monthly health recap, much like I do my debt repayment recap. I'm good at toying with ideas, less great at implementing them, so we'll see. If you've ever lost weight – what has been good accountability for you?! or even just sticking to your overall health goals, in general. Help me out!
Time to adjust my bow and get to work. ;D
THE BOW!!! Oh my gosh, so cute. Love the whole outfit. On Friday when there was snow on the ground I got an iced coffee. I felt like I was probably going to get judged, but I just reeeally wanted it iced!!
hahahaha you got iced coffee when it was snowing?!?! girl you gray!!! ;D
I MEANT CRAY BUT IT AUTOCORRECTED!
Hello. I totally forgot about that bow and now I want to bust mine out. Maybe I’ll bring it with me this weekend. Also, I’m totally with you on the sweating through warm clothes thing. That’s why I don’t really wear sweaters or long sleeves. Tanks/Short sleeves and cardigans are the way to go for me. Layers!
hey did you bring that bow
You’re the real deal. Weight stuff aside, you look amazing and have such great style. And I’m totally with you on overdressing when it gets cold!
