Winter White

Jacket: Calvin Klein (similar here), Shirt: J.Crew, Jeggings: Democracy, Boots: Nine West (similar on sale here!), Scarf: Michael Kors, Necklace: Eddie Bauer (coveting this next), Bracelets: J.Crew and Simon Sebbag, Watch: Michael Kors, Ring: Elizabeth Ngo (antique button), Sunglasses: Armani Exchange (similar here)

Every single time I wear this necklace I find myself telling someone, "Guess where I got this necklace. No, seriously, guess. You'll never guess." So why should this time be any different? Guess where I got this necklace, you guys. You'll never guess. EDDIE BAUER. I know what you're thinking. Eddie Bauer? The same Eddie Bauer known mainly for quilted jackets, outdoorsy supplies, and camping gear? Yes, the same Eddie Bauer where I buy my grandpa's Christmas sweater every year. Who knew they even sold jewelry, let alone great sparkly jewelry?! Not I. This discovery was as mind-boggling to me as when I discovered that Ann Taylor was more than just a place for my mom to buy suits and sweater sets. (Hint, they also have young-people clothes and fabulous jewelry.) 

In other unbelievable news, we're having some amazing, unseasonably warm weather here in Minneapolis right now, hence me getting brave enough to take my coat off while shooting these photos. Outdoors, no less! It's like a post-Christmas miracle. Mother Nature must have finally heard my pleas. Rumor has it it's supposed to get up into the 40's in the next few days. That's practically a heat wave! Not even practically. Literally. I'm usually buried under at least a foot of snow around this time and vowing to never leave my apartment again. Who knows, if this keeps up, maybe I'll even get brave enough to attempt a skirt. With tights, obviously. Let's not get too crazy.
