Guys, the weather is so nice in Minnesota right now!
Just kidding. It’s a frozen hellscape.
We did have some slightly warmer weather this Saturday – and by slightly I mean above zero degrees – so my husband and I visited the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, which is very close to our home. They have free admission for the whole month of January! A perfect opportunity to visit an indoor farmer’s market and take some photos 🙂
I realize I am insane for not wearing a coat, but I promise I was drinking warm liquids and wearing my coat in between photos! The photo below features a two-week-old Jamberry application – my first full mani 🙂
In full-on survival mode, I opted for some very warm fleece leggings and three – count ’em, three – pairs of socks. They were all similar tones of beige so it’s not noticeable. You’ve gotta stay warm somehow, right? What else am I supposed to do – wear pants and seasonal-appropriate boots all winter? Please.
Something about a cloche hat will always make me feel like I walked right out of the 1920s in the best way. All of the cloche hats I own are made with a wool blend material so they also double as extra warmth. Just don’t ask me to take it off, ever. Hat hair is real and it is here to stay.
We are excited to be back at the blog for 2015! The first thing we are itching to do it give away some gorgeous wood earrings – speaking of, have you entered our Instagram giveaway yet? We have a pair of wood arrow earrings from A Delightful Shop that will find a home on some lucky entrant’s ears as soon as we reach 500 Instagram followers!
