The weather around here has been crazy town this week! It was in the 60s, which for the Midwest is practically unheard of in January! I took full advantage of this and pretended it was fall again. I returned to my go to color combo of navy and olive with a little splash of red. This ensemble got me through a date day with my honey without needing to break out the winter coat I stashed in the car. A girl could get used to this!

One of my favorite things about winter style is the beanie. Anything designed to hide a woman's bad hair day is a friend of mine! Hair a little greasy? Beanie. Didn't have time to style it? Beanie. Got a cute new beanie? Beanie. The answer is always beanie once the temperatures dip below freezing.

Consider this my official declaration: I am a crazy dog lady. I love anything and everything Scottish Terrier, especially clothing. Need proof? Here, here and here! This sweater was gifted to me by my mom who always keeps her eye out for Scottie items for me. I dress my pups in plaid, so she threw in a purse so I could match my Miss Pearl and Peabody!

This weekend I celebrated my 31st birthday. Last year I went all out with a house party and a trip to Vegas, but this year I wanted low key. I spent the day with my hubby, and we took a cooking class with my parents. The day ended with a spa experience, so I was well fed and pampered all day. I did manage to lovingly coerce Scot into taking pictures in the freezing cold. I believe it was around 8 degrees during this shoot!

At times I find myself in a weird struggle with casual clothing. I find that I mostly like being dressed up in skirts and heels, and when I am "off duty" I go straight to the other end of the spectrum and rock my old Purdue sweat pants and sweatshirt. Those days that call for an easy going outfit can be the days I spend the most time staring at my closet wondering if I could get away with my suede leather booties and silk dress while in the woods. I chose a bit more practically today, but the struggle is real!

This week I had the luxury of spending nonstop time with my husband for over a week. We are apart often due to work, but we both had the week off. We spent our time cooking, playing with our pups and visiting friends and family. One afternoon we went out for cubans at a little hole in the wall place near our house and then did a little shopping, so this was my quick and easy day date look. It was the perfect outfit for spending some QT with my main cutie.
