Is there a more delightful way to describe an outfit than “pink and fluffy”? I like to think not.

I’ve mentioned before that wearing cheery colors and patterns becomes necessary for me towards the end of winter. I need it to cheer myself up, try and forget the constant gloom and chill outside, and remind myself that spring is imminent. Maybe it’s because we haven’t had a hard winter in a few years–and this winter hasn’t even been too bad–but I’ve not spring fever real bad this year. Winter seems extra long and depressing. I’m so mopey and tired all the time. I just want to hibernate and be lazy. It’s finally March now, though, so I’m hopeful we’re almost through!

I’ve been wanting a faux fur collar for ages and I finally snagged this super cute one on clearance at H&M last week! I will wear it to death during these last few cold weeks!


On another note, this Saturday is the Green With Indie Craftshow! My second time ever selling at one! You can read about my first time here. Sounds sexy right? Totally was. ;)

Oh god, don’t let my creepiness scare you away. I’ll be extra busy and rushed this week getting my shit together for the show, but I hope to have some sneak peaks to share and I’ll be hosting a giveaway really soon for an awesome collection of my goodies! Prints, postcards, and cute little hand-painted jewelry/accessories!

If you’re an STL local, please come up and say hi! The show is on Webster University’s campus and there are some really awesome vendors and tasty food trucks participating! xo

  • You are so super cute. I love the fur collar on you.

    Good luck at the craft fair!

      Thank you, Lauren! You are most super cute, so that’s a fab compliment! :)

  • ahhhh I’m so jealous – I had my eye on those ASOS shoes and when I got my paycheck, they were sold out! They look so gorgeous on you! β™‘

    • Michelle

      Awww, they were an impulse buy during their after Christmas sale. I snatched them up when I got my sneaker wedges, but I’ve actually been wearing these more! I love them!

  • I love that collar! :) Good luck with the craft show, I’m sure you’ll do great!

  • That fur collar looks great out you!! It looks so very snuggly and cozy. I am currently freezing my buns off in my office (the air conditioning is on. WHY?!?!) so seeing a cute and warm outfit is totally doing it for me right now!
    I feel you on having to incorporate bright colours and fun textiles into outfits this time of year; it’s just too damn dreary out, and I need something exciting in my life, even if it’s my clothes.
