As many of you probably have seen on the news, we [some of the southern states] were recently hit with a crazy ice storm [if you are wondering about my clashing mittens... I was desperate!]. John is interviewing here in Dallas tomorrow so spent the entire day Saturday traveling here. What should've been a 2 hour drive turned into a 6 hour drive.. err! Anyway, while in Dallas, I had the privilege of spending time with Amanda from Backroad Photography. She's mainly a wedding photographer so if you or someone you know are in the market, make sure to check her out! She is so much fun to be around & phenomenal with the camera.

Fact: I have four faux fur vests in my closet. Why? I am not sure but I believe it is because I am not a huge jacket/coat person. I don't like to be hot & if I am out shopping and get warm, I don't want to carry my coat around. Thus, I lean towards vests! Not only that, but they are the ultimate winter accessory - faux fur is so chic! Now, if you've been following, you've noticed turtlenecks are my go-to also... since I don't love wearing jackets, I always layer-up using a turtleneck as the base & they add a nice print if you wear a striped one. :)

Hope you all had a safe/warm/great weekend! Thank you for reading. 


  1. Fabulous boots and vest!

  2. I love your layers! I'm the same way—I think I have four faux fur jackets and two vests?! Can't get enough!

  12. I'm sorry it took you much longer to get here, but glad you both made it safely! Praying for John's interview to go well! Would LOVE if you guys moved here! I need another fashionable sister in Christ in my life. Just sayin' ;)

  15. gorgeous! such a perfect winter outfit.

    jenn @ hello, rigby!

  16. It's been F R E E Z I N G here in Colorado, so I've been taking to mittens all week long too. Sometimes, it's just got to be about comfort.


  17. I 100% agree with not being a coat/jacket person. I always use my fur as a coat and bundle it up with a sweater and layers. This is the best for a day of shopping because you look adorbs but so not have to carry around a big puffy winter coat in the jam packed stores!

  18. Your hair is aspirational. I want! I actually just bought my first faux fur vest, and I'm in love! Unfortunately, Chicago gets too cold to wear only that so I haven't been able to wear it recently. Maybe that will change soon?


  19. Im not a big fan of coats either but i love vest because i love layering!! YOu are so cute and you always look amazing!! your gorgeous!!

  20. Someday I'm going to hire you to be my personal shopper! :) Never really thought about wearing turtlenecks that way - thanks!
