Brown Snow is Icky!

One of my least favorite parts of winter is the dirty snow that develops when the fluffy stuff starts to melt and the remaining show gets mixed with the mud...so icky! 
Jack informed me this morning..."You cannot eat the brown snow."...ok...noted!

Pardon the wrinkles...
I picked up this skirt last week at Target while I was "supposed" to be grocery shopping....I did manage to get the groceries too.  I love a good key motif, so I could just now pass it up.  It is definitely a spring/summer item, so I tried to make it winter appropriate with the sweater and tights. I can also see styling it with a denim shirt and even a blazer for a meeting. This necklace is also a target find...loud and chunky...perfect for dressing up a plain sweater...amongst other things.

Had a pretty relaxing weekend.  I did not do much besides go to the gym, watch football, grocery shop and most importantly relax.  I am trying to get better with that last one, but it is not so easy!

I knew I was going to have a long day Friday, but I still needed to look business casual, so I went with a wardrobe of favorites.  My favorite comfy dress, reigned in by my first ever swap item, a very cool belt, topped by my ruffly cardigan.  This infinity scarf is so comfy and keeps me all toasty...I think I am going to have to pick it up in gold also.

Clean snow is so pretty, but it does get dirty awfully quickly. I am glad Jack knows what not to eat!

I love the new key skirt! And you winterized it perfectly (and you know how much I love a good black turtleneck!).

Very nice outfits...love the statement pieces for accessories! And yes, brown snow IS icky...Luckily we don't have too much of it here because we don't have much snow period. But it's usually pretty bad.

I'm glad to hear you had a good weekend! You CAN learn to relax. Trust me. I used to not be able to relax at all, and now I manage to do it like nobody's business...

Brown snow is one thing, but that top necklace is quite another. I love it!

Haha I love the stuff kids say! That sounds exactly like something my 3 year old would say. lol

I love both of these outfits. But I especially love the pattern on that dress!

I love spring/summer clothes that can be winterized, they make me feel like I am getting my money's worth.

It is impossible to go in Target and come out with only groceries :) Great find on the key skirt!
