I am just about wrapping up the last of my Winter outfits around here, before I transition into Spring (psst: did you know you can view each of my outfits by season? Check it out —> Winter / Spring / Summer / Fall.)

Stephanie killed it with these pictures, didn't she? I was so lucky to have my talented best friend come visit me back in January (and the pictures did not hurt!) Did you catch the first and second outfits from my shoots with her? We took these just down the street from my house in my neighborhood "strip mall" - using the term loosely, because, while strip malls are usually sterile and suburban, this little one is made up of old colored brick buildings! I don't know if I've mentioned lately that where I've been living in Nashville (for going on two years now) is my favorite place I've ever lived in the entire city. And let me tell you, I have done my homework, living in virtually every part of town. I guess I shouldn't hand out my address, but let me know if you want to hear more about that. :)

So this outfit is definitely one of my favorite looks of the season! I just can't get enough of my OTK boots, and to think I avoided them initially because I didn't think they were my style. Pairing them with a mini-skirt was even more of a step outside of my comfort zone, but Steph assured me, and hey, it works! I think the combination of OTK boots + tights + a mini at my natural waist actually looks pretty elongating, which is my end game any time I get dressed (short legs, right here.) 

This decent pair from Target appears to be sold out (boo!) but I've linked to the dreamy #bestlife Stuart Weitzman's. Quick poll: should I use my entire tax return to buy a pair? (Kidding, mom!)

This flannel is one of maybe three that I own, and I stole it from my little brother years ago (thanks Tup!) But anyone in my family/friend/boyfriend circle KNOWS that at any time, an item in their closet may appear on my blog. It comes with the territory. 

But for real, this button-up is a great reminder to me that it is way better to have a couple of something you really love, instead of six of something you don't really care for. And THAT is a lesson you can apply anywhere in your life! There you go, an outfit and some real life advice. Don't say I never did nothin' for ya.
