Sleet day and no Jury Duty

Monday, February 23, 2015

Jacket: Rice and Beans Vintage, similar, love this // Dress: Ann Taylor loft (old) similar // Button down: (men's) J. Crew, similar, love // leggings: Betsy Johnson (TJ Maxx) similar // boots: Hunter (pictured in Jade and not available usually in summer), similar on sale Necklace: Emerald Bling (old), similar // Lipstick: Stila // Hat and gloves : target  //

Well We got an ice storm here in the big D which basically means that everything is closed, well everything but my office.  I can't really complain since it got me out of having to go to Jury Duty, so I guess a scary drive into work was OK by me.  Luckily my office provided pizza and we got to leave early.  Ava was super pumped for the cold.  We took her over to the adjacent field and let her run until we got too cold, she had a blast and is officially worn out.

Since I didn't get the memo we could wear jeans to work I tried to make a warm yet work appropriate outfit.  So Fleece lined leggings and a dress with a button down under it.  I added my hunter boots for the crap weather and my vintage faux fur jacket..which by the way is super warm.  For our play time outside I had to add a beanie and gloves the wind was just too cold.

My favorite part about the outfit, besides the Jade Hunter's, this great button-down I scored for 15.00! Did you know its from the Men's section in J. Crew? I always try and scope out their shirts because they tend to be cheaper and longer than women's.  The only issue I have found other than the buttons being on the wrong side is they can be a little tight in the hips if you tend to be a little curvy, but if layering under a dress or sweater you can't tell!  One of the many ways I can cut costs on clothing, plus they have some really good patterns and colors!

I hope everyone stays warm and safe during this cold front!
