You know what I just realized I’ve forgotten to be irritated about lately? We had *such* a mild Winter in Nashville this year! We had a grand total of 0 “check my work email and cheer and roll over and go back to sleep and then spend the day eating carbs and watching 80’s movies” snow days. So that was a real bummer. The other bummer being that basically all of my cold weather accessories were left untouched all season long. I try to be pretty strict with my closet, and get rid of anything I don’t wear over a season, but what’s the solution here? Accept that global warming IS the new norm and give all my scarfs away? (I really only wear one scarf every Winter all Winter long anyway.)

So looking back at this outfit it looks a little silly like, if it was warm enough for bare legs, it wasn’t cold enough for mittens, but fashion is pain and aren’t these mittens the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I always say that I’m not a sensitive person but I am *extremely* sentimental, and especially when it comes to what I wear. These mittens were randomly given to me when we spent Christmas 2014 in Finland. I can't be sure exactly where they came from, but I'd like to think they belonged to my mom or someone in the family when they were younger. Otherwise I think this is officially the last outfit I'm cataloging as Winter around here. 

As of this afternoon (!) I am headed to the Pacific Northwest for my girl Katie's Bachelorette weekend AND to work out of our Portland office for two days! I am excited for a little Spring adventure and some time with my best girlfriends. Plus I kinda feel like I knocked it out of the park with packing, but, stay tuned.

I’ll be back in Nashville Monday night with Bachelorette shenanigans to share, but in the meantime, follow along with me on Instagram and Twitter (blog / personal.)
