Romping about in the Snow


Hello! The rainfall here in Richmond finally stopped yesterday evening. Instead, snow flakes began to spiral down throughout the night due to the winter storm "Iago". Luckily for me, Henrico County public schools cancelled school today.

On this lovely snow day, I decided to don my olive green romper. I know wearing a romper in the midst of winter seems a little silly but is totally do-able when layered correctly. I layered a pair of black opaque tights under my romper and slipped into a pair of combat boots(a stylish alternative to UGGs) to keep my feet from freezing. I layered a huge, leopard print faux fur coat on top of my romper. This coat is a life-saver for keeping me nice and cozy. You know, not to mention that I pretty much adore anything leopard print....

To keep my head toasty, I grabbed this vintage beret. Oh la la! So French. Sometimes, I love to imagine and ponder about the others that have worn vintage/thrifted pieces that I now wear, like this hat. This could have been someone's favorite hat or the hat that they wore to a glamorous banquet dinner. The possibilities are endless.

I also accessorized with black heart sunglasses (a classic in my book!) and a Kay Adams necklace. I won this necklace in a giveaway a while back and it is such a vintage-y, quirky piece. It has five pendants on it; each being a piece of an old watch. Talk about cool! If you want one for yourself, you can find one HERE.

Did you guys get any snow from the winter storm "Iago"?
