I'm going on a very unexpected, last-minute ski trip this spring break and am trying to figure out what I am going to pack!! Aside from the problem of figuring out what I will actually wear to ski, I also need to decide what to pack for all of the time I will be off of the slopes. I don't spend too much time in the snow, so I have quite a bit to buy. I already have plenty of sweaters, sweater tights, and jeans, but I need to get my hands on a pair of warm mittens, wool socks, and some waterproof shoes by Saturday. I think I'm in for a marathon shopping trip after work tomorrow!
P.S. Do cute snow shoes exist? Want to loan some to me??

I've been conditioned from a young age to avoid combining black and brown like the plague. Still, I couldn't help being drawn to this stripey pleated skirt, especially when my husband pointed out that it was only $14. After trying it on and discovering that it fit perfectly, I obviously couldn't pass it up, despite my reservations. "Will I be arrested by the fashion police?" I wondered. Well, I can happily report that I received no citation for my fashion transgression. Phew.
Do you ever combine black and brown? What fashion rules are you afraid to break?

This is an outfit that I wore visiting Lauren in The Woodlands last weekend. It seems crazy to imagine that I was able to not wear socks and was actually too warm in a sweater just one day before getting stuck in an ice storm. The weather was so bad on my drive back to Plano on Sunday that I was worried I wouldn't make it. I saw about twenty wrecks (we Texans aren't much for driving in ice and snow), but luckily slow and steady won the race and I made it back in one piece. The drive was one of the worst I've experienced, but at least I got a snow day out of it on Monday!

In honor of the warm, humid, springtime weather we got to enjoy this weekend (which has vanished, sadly), I went a little prints crazy when I got dressed to go out to lunch on Saturday. I dug these tropical-printed jeans from the depths of my drawer when I realized that the weather finally merited wearing them. I had gotten them on ridiculous clearance back in October, and it was the first day it actually seemed appropriate to wear these summery pants. Sadly, the weather took a turn on Sunday, plunging from the 70s to the 30s within a few hours, so it's back in the drawer for these jeans.
Have you gotten the chance to break out your spring clothes yet?

Sweater: Loft // Jeans & Shoes: J. Crew // Earrings: Borrowed // Stacking Rings: Limited // Quartz Ring: Vintage
I wore this outfit on the last day of TSHA Convention--a place where highly caffeinated SLPs gather once a year to learn about new speech strategies and collect all of the free stuff we can carry. I always over-think what I will wear to convention, and this year was no exception. It's just hard to pick something that will be comfortable to sit in for long periods of time that is also cute enough to wear in front of the hundreds of adorable women who are sure to be there. One fellow speech-pathologist who was rocking heels, perfectly curled hair, and a swoon-worthy pink coat may have put all of my efforts to shame, but we all hate her right? Right.

We had an extra jeans day at my school yesterday, so I wore this purpley casual outfit. My room has been blazing hot all week, so I went the safe route and wore a thin, sleeveless top, even though it was cold enough this morning that I had to scrape ice off of my car. Luckily, I threw a cardigan over it because my classroom was a bit on the chilly side. Go figure.

Lauren turned me on to consignment shopping last summer and accompanied me on several trips to a great place just down the road from my house in San Antonio. This was definitely my favorite piece I've found on consignment so far, and wearing it today reminded me that I need to explore some shops here in Plano. I have a feeling that there may be some really great deals to be found up here. Google, here I come!
