{Boots: B.P., Jeans: 7 for all mankind, Blazer: Frenchie, Shirt: Forever21, Bracelet: Juicy Couture, Bag: Coach}

I love florals year-round, but I don't always wear them during the winter months (be prepared for more floral inspired ensembles to come!) This outfit was from last week when we had some sunshine, just before the snow came! This blazer is proving to be one of the best purchases I've ever made (although, I think that can be said about all of my blazers). I love it with these skinnies and a casual flowy top. All of these photos were taken in a matter of about 5 mins, haha so I chose the few that came out well! Anyways, I'm looking forward to more sunshine this week... It makes me feel so much more productive and inspired! Do you find that you're more productive when the sun is shining?

I have yet to meet an italian dish that I don't like. Most people have sweet tooth's, and while I like something sweet from time to time, I have a weak spot for pastas and all things carbohydrates. I found this recipe here, and it's definitely going into the pile of "things to make again". And, naturally, I served this with french bread. This blog, skinny taste, has a lot of great recipes that are low in calories and taste beyond amazing! I hope you all get the chance to try this soon! Happy Monday! :)

 Here are a few photos currently inspiring me. I love Bridget Bardot and sweet things like the teacup candles... I did a variation here. Have a wonderful weekend!! Mine will be filled with mostly homework and sleep. Lots of sleep hopefully!

I don't often become obsessed with pieces of clothing, okay... that's a lie. But I only get obsessed with the ones that are truly fabulous! This skirt is one of those pieces. I love it, from the moment I got it I knew that I would want to wear it all the time. Unfortunately, January in Washington isn't exactly skirt weather, but hey, who cares! I didn't know how well this skirt would work with the other pieces in my wardrobe, but it's surprisingly versatile. This shirt is has everything I love, stripes and a comfy fit. However, sometimes it looks a little too boxy (as was proven today), so I tied it with a hairband to cinch it up a little.

{Ring & Clutch: H&M, Watch: Forever21, Shirt: B.P., Jeans: Hudson, Blazer: Necessary Objects}

I've been obsessed with dainty rings lately (like the one above), I love how just a simple band is so chic. I got this clutch not long ago and I think it's just the sweetest thing ever. It's big enough to fit all of my things and who doesn't love a great bow? I'm off right now to have dinner with a friend, so this is a quick post!

Last week was my best friends birthday. As a part of her birthday present I made this cake, which was delicious (we started eating it before the dinner got to the table)! This cake is really sweet, I love the light pink frosting with simple sprinkles that add just enough decoration. It couldn't have been easier to make with a box cake mix and store brought frosting. I hope she enjoyed eating it as much as I enjoyed making it. Happy birthday, ness!

{Cut-offs: 7 for all mankind, Tights: Betsey Johnson, Scarf: Nordstrom, Jacket: Topshop, Bag: Steve Madden}

I love the look of cut-off shorts and tights, I never would've thought to put the two together until I saw someone wearing the combo. It keeps me surprisingly warm while being really easy and comfortable to wear. This bag was gifted to me a couple of years ago and it still stands as one of my favorites! As most of you probably know, we got quite a bit of snow in the Seattle area recently... well, now it's melting and while I'm glad I can drive again, I hate the way it looks during the process. It's all messy and dirty on the side of the road, yuck! On the plus side, the sun was shining! Happy Monday! :)

{View from our living room, we got more since the time I took this}

Keeping warm these last few days has been tough, but I like having the snow around for a little while, so it's okay! I read an article written by someone in New York about all of the snow in Seattle, they said people of the northwest were trading their umbrellas for snow boots or something like that... Little do they know we don't even use umbrellas (it rains all the time and carrying an umbrella is a hassle) haha! This sweater was knitted by my grandmother in the 90's, I recently saw my mom wearing it and stole it from her closet. It's so warm! I love it :)
