Winter White

January 10, 2012

Chicago is having SUCH a mild winter. I kid you not, there are highs of 52 and 54 this week. Global warming at it’s finest, I suppose. But hey, I’ll take the warmest temps I can get!

I wore this to brunch at one of my favorite spots in Lincoln Park — Jam ‘n Honey. (Toast & Jam ‘n Honey are my top spots!) The oatmeal pancakes with blueberry and lemon compote are AMAZING. I was literally eating them off of Megan’s plate. So classy.

I’m going to vent here for just a second… It is SO ANNOYING when people gawk/stare/judge as I’m taking outfit pictures outside. I’m sure all of my fellow bloggers will agree. Short Story: This couple walked by and were obviously staring and even pointed. Megan and I get to Jam ‘n Honey and they were actually at the table next to us. THEN they had the waitress take a picture of them at their table. C’mon people, I’m pretty sure you don’t have any room to stare and point at me.

Looks like my Smart Wool “no show” socks aren’t as hidden as I thought.. 🙂

    I am dying over this coat – LOVE! Great choice adding the leopard loafers, too…oh, and I couldn’t agree more with you about people staring during photo shoots – so annoying!

    Great coat! Is that the couple you mention, in the background? Wouldn’t they be surprised to see themselves here? Smart Wool sox – the only way to go, even if the no-shows do show. Love your snappy style in dress and writing.

    LOVE the jacket! Anything that is super cozy but also looks chic is a winner all around! The tie belt is so cute!

    When I clicked over today, your font looks great! Thanks so much for taking my comment into consideration 🙂

    You look so cute!! Love that jacket, perfect for a little brunch. Don’t worry about the people staring and pointing, they couldn’t help it because you look so fabulous! 😉

    This is a perfect brunch outfit! I love the BB Dakota coat, and those sunglasses & flats are too adorable! And yes, so awkward when people stare or make comments during outfit photos. I once had a man lean out his apartment window and ask if I was in a beauty pageant. Either way, you look gorgeous!

    I am loving this coat! I kind of wish Florida had cold weather so I wouldn’t have to miss on all the cute winter wear. Kind of. 😉

    how cute are you!? I love that jacket on you. had seen online and looks MUCH better on you than the model. and thanks for wearing baublebar, love!

    I agree with Real Girl Glam… that’s exactly why they were staring… cause you were working it! I’m pretty new to the blogging scene and have mostly taken pictures indoors (mostly because I take them during the week and by the time I get home it is already dark), but I’m sure it is super annoying to have people stare and point!

    Anyway, you look gorgeous! Loving your ring, watch and coat! Glad I discovered your blog through BDIB 🙂

    I love everything about the coat!

    I love that coat- and it looks amazing on you! And your sunglasses definitely look unique as well!

    I am in LOVE with that coat! It’s amazing! And the loafers! Great outfit!

    Can I just steal the ENITRE outfit??? It is fantastic! You look amazing and that is why everyone stared! Can’t take their eyes off of you 😉

    Oh my gosh, I have this coat! I stalked it forever until it went on sale at UO. Anyway, just found your blog VIA the BDIB sequins challenge. You have great style, which is probably why the couple was staring at you. 😉

    I’ve been admiring that coat since I first saw it on Cheetah Is the New Black- you look great in it too! Enjoy how you’ve paired it with skinnies, leopard shoes and a LV bag.Of coursem the coat manages to make a statement all on its own!

    That sweater is great!

    I couldn’t agree more on the vent sesh…. Like, NO – I DO NOT want you take my picture no more than I want you to stand and stare at me! (I take my own shots)

    Honestly, people make us feel criminal when I’ve seen MUCH stranger things on the streets of CHI 🙂

    At any rate, I’d stare at you too if I saw this coat-and-loafers combo. Love it! xo

    You are too cute! Just found your blog and am loving it!!

    Those people were just staring because you are so beautiful. They are jealous 🙂
