Winter is Coming

Well, you asked for it. This is me, in pants, on a 9 degree day last week. I still can't say I really love the look on me, but I figured I owed it to you all to show what I've been wearing while I adjust to the cold. These pants are actually teal corduroys, but it's a little hard to see here. I picked up this sweater on major clearance over winter break and it's slowly becoming my favorite winter sweater. After my polka dot one, of course. Nothing beats polka dots.

My good friend Justine got my California necklace for a belated Christmas present and I freaked out a little when I opened it. I actually posted that I wanted a California necklace way back in July and Justine actually remembered after all this time. Needless to say, I've been wearing it a lot since I got it.

Don't get too used to me looking like this. We'll be back to your regularly scheduled skirts and dresses by tomorrow.

Also in this post: my winter coat and snow boots. Oh yeah, I'm just spilling everything today.

And yes, I have been waiting months to make a Game of Thrones reference in a post title. Why do you ask?

Sweater: Forever 21

  1. I can't believe you're wearing pants!!! I think this is the first time. I love those boots though and I totally want that California necklace. Super cute! As for My Fair Wedding, I'm unsure what I want to do... My friend works on reality tv and it kinda sucks. But I'll keep you posted!

  2. This is the first time I've seen you in pants! Hang in with all the cold weather!

  3. You have the cutest snow boots ever! those are so adorable and with practical winter footwear, that is really hard to find. (I just love the lace-ups!) I hate that moment when you go from warm weather to colder weather, it always feel so hard to adjust to that first week. :P Your whole outfit is actually really cute, it's fun to see your practical cold weather outfits and to see another side of you. (That sweater is awesome with the two tones!)

  4. I absolutely love that necklace! I need to get one for myself for sure. Hope you've been doing alright in the cold!

  5. You look fab in pants! I love this look!
    Much love,

  6. You look so sweet - the pants suit you really well!

    Have a great day,

  7. I want that necklace!!! With a heart in NorCal. Hey, this is real life, we wear pants, and if we do, at least let them be teal cords. 9 DEGREES?! Is that even a real temperature?!

    perfectly priya

  8. I like your sweater and the jacket! Nice outfit :)

  9. Game of Thrones: check
    California love: check
    Your qt face: check

  10. This is such a great cold weather outfit, I really like your cute contrast sleeve sweater and the teal pants are great :) And woah those boots lace up all the way, that is sooo cool! So is your necklace, love the little heart cut out :) But I think I would basically look like Michelin tire logo person if it was that cold haha.

  11. Oh thank goodness you're human! I always wonder how fashion bloggers can actually survive the winter months taking photos outside in tights. So much dedication.

    I alos kind of love this sweater. It looks so ridiculously cozy. And I can see why you wanted that California necklace! It's just lovely. Hope you're having a great week & staying warm!

  12. I love those pants!! Skinny cords are a must for me as they are super comfy but still stylish for working with kiddos. You look great in them-especially with this pretty sweater! Plus you have an adorable winter coat. Mine are puffy and ridiculous-but yours is tre cute!

  13. Oh my goodness, a California necklace!! Squeeee!!! I want one *_* Haha, that's my home state and I miss it so much...
    Anyway, its nice to see a new look from you. I've been reduced to wearing jeans lately too, so I like using colorful/printed pairs to make it more interesting at least. Haha, hopefully it warms up so we can go back to wearing dresses/skirts with tights comfortably again!
