Brrrrrr from the chilly midwest!  I hope you are staying toasty where ever you call home. Late Sunday evening we had a few inches of snow grace us with the first snow of the season.  These are my simple thoughts on snow; I saw it, now I am over it and freezing.  As you can see, I acted like a person who had never seen snow before and started throwing it bare handed. Ummmmm, have I lost my mind? More snow flurries fell from the sky as we took this shoot. Brrrrrr.

Aside from throwing snow, my other favorite part of this photo shoot is my metallic mini skirt. How do you guys feel about metallics? I love metallics and find myself drawn to these items currently while shopping in stores. Okay, maybe not as much the “Tin Man” and dressing head to toe, but some metallic here and there is okay. Although this mini skirt has been a chilly weather repeat for a few years now, it will be a favorite in the coming months. Of course,  I had to pair my knee high boots to keep my legs from freezing and turning to icecicles.  Top it off with my turtleneck and pale pink moto jacket and we are ready.  These earrings I scored over the weekend for only $5.98 at the JCrew Factory store. Who does not love when they have major sales on jewelry? Ummm, no one! Head over to the JCrew Factory online site, maybe you can score some jewelry on sale.

This metallic mini skirt would also look great with an over sized knit sweater or turtleneck sweater! Grab a hot chocolate and your warm PJs to cozy up by the fire.

Keep Toasty!

I know what you are thinking by this title, turtleneck? Really? Many of your first thoughts might go back to those bad memories in second grade when your mother dressed you in a turtleneck with a large sweater over top consisting of a large bear. Okay, maybe that was my idea with my favorite bear sweater from second grade.

These days turtlenecks are thin and flowy. Mine is so comfortable. Here, I simply put my black turtleneck under a sleeveless black dress from my summer wardrobe to transition the dress into colder months. I paired the dress with a pair of tights, booties and a sweater over top. You just might see this turtleneck making an appearance all fall and winter as a layering pieces in my wardrobe. Do you have a turtleneck? What are some of your favorite ways to style it?Turtleneck Work Edition

This is a very appropriate outfit for any office environment. My full-time job allows for me to dress business casual and this was just what I was looking for on a chilly day. This combo can also work great for teachers. Something about this outfit made me feel teacher-ish today. Any teachers feel like this would work well for your work day attire? 

I also added some animal print but not over the top. You could instead add pops of color into shoes or jewelry. I was more of a neutral fan when it came to styling this outfit.
