Evening Chill

The past few days had me thinking that spring was already here, but yesterday evening, as the sun was setting, I was reminded that winter is still around. I feel like I need to take in every bit of winter before it's gone. I always get sentimental about my two favorite seasons passing by, but it's nice to know that just like clockwork, they will come back around to me next year and I will get to relive all of the amazing nostalgia that comes with seasons all over again. I swear, I love fall and winter!

My very sweet friend Gaby sells these darling bows in her Etsy shop, Paperplanes & Maryjanes. I've always been a fan of crochet and knit accessories, and these are just darling for adding something special to an every day outfit. Perfect for brightening a spring ensemble! Gaby has been so sweet to offer a 20% off discount on everything in her shop to all Tea Talk readers with the discount code: FRIENDOFCHELSEA PS She always has free shipping!

I'm still loving my Explodes from Blowfish Shoes. I've been really wanting a comfortable pair of shoes to wear around campus and while out running errands, and these have proven to be them. Also, they're on super sale right now over on the Blowfish Shoes website if you're in need of a comfy pair of cute maryjanes!

I honestly kind of adore this outfit. I got this cardigan while in Colorado last winter, and can't believe it took me so long to bring it out this winter. Wearing it kind of feels like wearing a giant blanket. It's seriously SO cozy! I decided to belt it with this sweet dear rose belt from Le Mode Accessories to give it more of a cinched waist look. Cozy and comfortable!

I can't believe tomorrow is already Valentine's Day! A few weeks ago I had a nightmare that I realized it was Valentine's Day and I had nothing planned. I literally woke up in a panic! Because of this dream I made sure to get my Valentine's Day plans and treats in order before the holiday got here. I'm very excited to celebrate with Scott! This will be our sixth Valentine's Day together. Oh my goodness!

Do you have plans for Valentine's Day? XO

  1. I am in LOVE with this outfit so much I don't even know where to begin. I may go home to try and replicate it, I love it so much. Of course I'll throw my own spin on it, but you look beautiful.

  2. Okay, I just got a little paranoid there for a minuet and had to call and confirm my dinner reservations for tomorrow night! LOL My husband and I are going on a hiking adventure / picnic lunch date and then we're going to The Dhaba in Tempe for dinner. I can't wait!

    I have been loving the weather here lately, but I haven't gotten the chance to wear all of my cute wintery items yet! Looooove those shoes!

  3. I so agree about winter! I live in Northern Arizona and just when I had accepted the fact the spring and summer were on their way, it was 50 degrees yesterday and still rainy and chilly today! Love it!

  4. I love this! your shoes are so adorable!! :)

  5. The little bow on the cardigan is such a sweet little touch! I love the simple fall-ish colours!
