Snow Day

8 7 6 5 4 9 3 2 1

Our first “married” Christmas together was definitely a beautiful one. Arkansas received a ton of snow and we were so excited. Unfortunately, the mint sweater from this post didn’t make it through the first snow ball fight before it ripped. Oh, and my glove ripped. It was so worth it, though. This is just a few snapshots of our snow day.

I’m wearing a NorthFace jacket, Macy’s scarf, gifted cashmere gloves (similar), and gifted Karen Kane beanie. My boots are old but I love these

Our Christmas vacation was filled with at least four different climates and a ton of driving. Road trips have become a familiar thing to us lately, since we live 4-6 hours from both of our families and friends and we love to see them as often as we can. We had weather that was way too warm to be Christmas, fog, rain, and then snow. We actually had a white Christmas and I’m so excited that it fell on our first married Christmas together. Even though our break was short-lived, it was fantastic. We got to spend QT time with our loved ones and relax. My hubby even bought me a new Canon Rebel T3! Have you noticed the photo change? What do you think? We took it into the woods behind my parents house to catch some fun shots!

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas! New Years Eve is right around the corner!

What’s In My Bag?

Ever since Melie Bianco so graciously sent me their “Jill” cross body, my Coach bag has pretty much taken a far second place to it. While it may be small, never judge a book by its cover. When I first received it, I thought that it’d be ideal for shopping in New Orleans, nights on Bourbon Street, or for times when I just don’t feel like carrying my bag. I was so wrong. This bag is useful for so much more and I absolutely love it.

Our 5 month old Golden Retriever is a little bit hyper (he’s still just a pup) so when we go for a run and I need my house and gate keys, this bag is ideal. I also love to wear it grocery shopping (I hate taking up the front space of the buggy with my larger Coach bags), and for running errands. I even like to wear it to the salon because who wants to put a $600 purse on the hair-infested floor? Not this girl.

I love it mostly because I can fit so much more into it than meets the eye. I’m a little obsessed with brushing my hair. I have a mild panic attack if it’s messy, I’ll admit it. So, I love to carry around my small Estee Lauder comb/mirror compact. I also always have my iPhone, Ray Bans, keys, ID/debit cards, and lipsticks. It’s a HUGE plus that I still have room for extra bobby pins, my fave Essie nail polish for touchups on the go, and a little sampler of perfume for dinner dates.

It’s amazing and insanely affordable. Grab yours here.
