A Snowy Secret

Yesterday morning the snow was coming down extra wet, but somehow it felt warmer than the icy stuff we had been getting. I took advantage of this "warmness" and worn only one jacket outside (a big difference from the past few days).

Headband: Goodie
Jacket: Nordstroms Rack
Shirt: H&M
Gloves: Target
Pants: Levi's
Socks: Target
Boots: Steve Madden

Today I took a little me time, which included a walk in the snow down to a local shopping plaza, a hot soy latte from Starbucks, and some people watching. Since we are in Vail during the busy season there are so many people in town. While hanging out at Starbucks I heard some of the prettiest accents from all over the world!

I think it's safe to say that I've been having so much fun taking these photos. The snow in Vail is absolutely beautiful, and the change of scenery has been a lot of fun for my outfit choices, and my photo taking. Things are so different in Vail compared to Phoenix, and the cold is really starting to grow on me (although, I do prefer 60 degree weather rather than 30!).

While in Vail I've learned that thick socks are totally necessary in cold weather. In Phoenix I don't really worry about my feet getting too cold, or wet, but in Vail I am very conscious of how warm my feet are. They do say if your feet and head (that's why I've been wearing that knit hat every where) are warm, than your whole body will stay warm.

Ok, I have a little secret to tell. This grey jacket is actually from the Eclipse BP collection. I bought it on sale for $10 at Nordstroms racket about a month ago because it was so cozy, and well, because I thought it was kind of cute, in that fangirl kind of way.

Colorado has been good to me, but I'm ready to go home. See you very soon Phoenix, and Colorado, I will miss your beautiful snow and cold weather.

The snow has been very inspiring to me lately. What has been inspiring you?


  1. Looks like you've had a good time there! The "me time" sounds wonderful...I could really use some of that right about now.

  2. What a cute casual winter outfit. I've never tried wearing socks over pants before. Is it comfortable? It sure looks cute though! I'll have to try it out sometime. Glad that you got some time to yourself!

  3. All of your snowy shots are making me jealous, I bet it's great getting out of the Az weather for a little bit! I'm still wearing tank tops and sandals! Ps. I love your overcoat from the last post.


  4. you look adorable, I love the socks over pants look! cold weahter is always so refreshing from the normal Phoenix weather. It makes coffee taste better too! (: Merry Christmas sweetheart!

  5. its true! keep your feet and head covered and warm, it makes everything else quite bearable! :)

  6. I'm loving all of your outfit posts, and the snow makes the prettiest backdrop. :) I've also been wearing thick high socks a lot, mainly over tights.

  7. Oh my gosh I'm loving these CO outfit posts. So magical and I love your style so much. I am still obsessed with those boots...gosh dang it, they're just perfect!

    Thank you for the sweet wishes about our engagement :) I'm SO EXCITED :D :D :D
