I hope everyone survived the long Thanksgiving weekend full of food and sales! I generally don’t go out shopping on Black Friday, though I did manage to snag a few sales online and later on Saturday at some boutiques in my neighborhood. I’m so excited about this hand-painted silk scarf from Eliza Dot Design. It’s luxurious and is the perfect way to add a pop of color to any look. Each scarf is unique in that it’s handmade and painted with a palette of vibrant pigments. Have a great Monday!

It’s so rare for me to wear skirts in the winter.  I really do love the idea of it; wool skirts, tights, and fun boots! It’s just so difficult for me to agree to the idea of not wearing pants and knee high socks in bone-chilling temperatures lasting for months. Though, on occasion it does happen!

puffer coat + knitwear

One of my cold weather staples is a warm puffer coat. I’m always cold, so layers and more layers are how I make it though a Chicago winter. I love the huge collar on this (super) soft cardigan. The over-sized buttons and front pockets make this a great option to wear with jeans or pair it with a skirt and tights.
