Yeah... It's Wintertime

Pictures Taken by My Tripod

When: Thursday, December 8, 2011

What:  Poncho - Love Your Size, Love your Style; Long-sleeve Tee - Merona; Jeggings - Lane Bryant; Sweater Boots - Sketchers; Ring - Premier Design; Watch Cuff - Lane Bryant

Where:  Work, home and doing homework with my son, working on my blog, and dinner out to our favorite Chinese spot.

Oh man!  Is it getting cold here or what?!  I know it will only get colder (ugh) but I am already over it!  My bed felt so warm this morning...  Getting out from under the covers was the last thing I wanted to do!  So to stay comfy and warm as much as possible today, I opted for a casual look of a sweater poncho, jeggings, and my sweater boots.

The watch is a gift I received from a friend quite a few years ago.  We're talking before my son was even thought of old...  But I have always liked it and thought it would be a nice minimal accessory to go with my casual look.  (Psst - the batteries were dead!  I didn't realize this till around lunch time.  I looked at my watch and though huh, that secondhand isn't ticking...)  The ring is another Premier Design piece from the party I had a few years back.  I especially like this ring right now because it reminds me of the Aztec designs that are really in style right now.  Another outfit with my sweater boots - how could I not?  These are perfect to wear on a chilly day!

I ended up putting my hair in pigtails right before I stepped out of the house this morning.  I tried to wear it down, but I couldn't get it to work right.  Wait - what's that you say?  Didn't I just get it trimmed the day before and I thought you loved it?  YES!  That hasn't changed!  She washed it that evening when I had it cut, and I avoid washing my hair on consecutive days almost religiously.  But this morning I was realizing I must have slept on it weird cause I didn't like it so I put it up. 

So I'm 30...  Is 30 too old for pigtails?  (Obviously I don't think so.  Especially when I'm doing a comfy-casual outfit day!)

Other ways I have rocked out my sweater boots:


  1. I have the same boots! They do keep your feet toasty warm :) Definitely rock the pigtails, they are adorable. Heather

    Thanks. I love the pigtails.. But sometimes I just never know!!

    It seems we have a lot of the same shoes as I'm pretty sure the light brown booties you have, if they're from Kohls, are the same ones I do! Great minds think alike!
