long weekend

chelsea 28 sweater {last seen here} . american eagle denim . michael kors boots {sold out / similar} . zara scarf {last seen here / similar} . trina turk earrings {in coral} . catbird + virginie millefiori rings . opi nail polish in "privacy please" 

This weekend was a nice long, three day, real weekend for me and it was amazing. I'm so into my current routine that I forgot what it was like to have a normal schedule with Saturdays and Sundays wide open. We took advantage of this special treat and got out of the city to visit with the pups and our families, as well as do a little wine and beer tasting, and some furniture scouting for our new apartment. This is what I wore on Friday for our errands and scouting. With all of the snow we've been getting, it's just not practical to wear these boots in the city. Between the near constant slush and splashes and mystery puddles they'd get destroyed. But, if you're traveling by car that all of a sudden doesn't matter. Sometimes I do miss commuting by car instead of on foot. And yes, most of those reasons are shoes. The others would be singing really loudly by myself. It's just not the same on the train... 

Happy Monday and thank you so much for reading, I hope you had a great weekend!

  5. You look so cute! I commute by car and still put like half off my shoes away when it snows or rains because I don't want to ruin them! Bring on spring!!

  6. LOVE these Michael Kors boots! Isn't it so nice to ditch the snow boots? I insisted on wearing heels to a friend's birthday party over the weekend and even though I almost killed myself on her driveway, it was worth it to wear something chic and stylish for a change!

  7. Beautiful boots! I know it's not as easy without a car to wear nicer shoes, I don't have a car at uni so also have the issue of mostly wearing flats :(. Lovely outfit, totally thought there was a blouse under your jumper :) so pretty

  8. Aren't long wknds the best?! Nice to hear that you were able to relax and enjoy family time. Not to mention a few adult beverages, wink wink. We had a long wknd up at our ski house in Vermont. Sad to say, none of my outfits looked this cute.

  11. After years of living downtown I'm still not used to the fact that if I'm driving to work, it is actually okay to wear suede footwear and it won't get destroyed. I love these boots on you, gorgeous!
