The Looks

Wednesday: What I wanted to wear vs. what I should really wear.  I didn't really love this look...I think it was the scarf with a poncho that was new to me.

Then the next day I tried it again whilst heading out to the kid's Cmas concert...and I LOVED this look:

Thursday- cozy outfit for morning school run. This one lasted all day and the puffer was even good as a jacket later on when it got above zero warm.  Practically bikini weather, if you ask me.

Friday- the new sweater (same, similar)  which was cozy for a day where I needed some extra warmth and cuddles.   
Saturday: Embellished sweater and skinnies. Nope. Cozy sweater with pearls and the go-to leggings. Yup, that's more like it.

Note: the outfits end here. I've been wearing the same lulus and Harry Potter Tshirt all week. I've gone rogue, but when grieving one must be cozy, so says me.  Thursday is my Grams' funeral, I promise I won't wear said lulus and Tshirt to it.

Also sharing the scarf that I got in our blogger's scarf exchange.
I sent my scarf to my friend, Vanessa and I received a scarf from a girl I went to high school with. It has been great reconnecting with her over Instagram and through this exchange.  Also...she picked out a beautiful scarf!!! It's pattern mixing defined, with my favourite patterns: plaid and polka dots!
Thanks, Johanna!!
