Plaid, Snow and Some Brew

Hey ladies! Hope everyone had a good weekend!

First things first, don’t forget to vote for me over at Circle of Moms to stay in the top 25 fashion and beauty blogs! My goal is to remain in the top 25 until voting closes on the 23rd! So far I am holding strong and I have YOU to thank for it! You can vote every 24 hours right here!! Thank you so much for taking the time to vote!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of heading up north to Ithaca. If you have never been I highly recommend going. My husband and I go with friends every January for a weekend and spend our time hopping from winery to winery. We tend to stick to the same ones because we know we love them and they have good wine. Typically, we all come home with a case or so of amazing wine!! I had every intention of getting some blog pics but honestly, the weekend wine got the best of me and I only managed to get some pics after we got there Friday night. Probably the best view I have had thus far for my backdrop!!

Knowing how cold it was going to be, and that I was going to have a loooonnnggg car ride ahead of me I wanted to be comfy (but still cute of course). Sometimes I think its such a challenge to manage to not look ridiculous while bundling up, am I right? I just kept adding on layer after layer though!!


Plaid shirt: Old Navy

White Tank: Target

Zip Up Hoodie: Old Navy (in store)

Jeans: Gap

Boots: Target

Vest: Old Navy (sold out)

Bracelets: Stella and Dot: hereherehere

 And enjoy these last two pictures….I believe I am trying to do the Sound of Music spin except I am no Julie Andrews and I don’t think she was drinking some beer when she was doing her spin.

 And I think I look strung out in this picture but for some reason my husband liked it and told me to use it….hahahahah. I think it might have been after several drinks he said he liked it so we will just go with it 🙂

When you have to dress warm and all else fails…pull out the plaid and your boots and you will be good to go. I feel like plaid button ups are sort of Old Faithful, you know?

Linking up today with Molly for YOLO and Sami for Weekend Update…head on over to their blogs and link up! They are lovely ladies! Also, don’t forget to vote here!

Have a great day!

    Following from Sami's weekend link up!Love the plaid, but I can't believe I don't have one! I'm a suck for some knee high boots, though!

    Looking so cuteee…is it wrong that these pics made me happy that I no longer live where it snows? And, I thought you might like to know (though it's been awhile and you've probably forgotten), I finally got my hands on a pair of leopard print flats…I've been coveting them since seeing them here on you…but I've been picky! Found perfect ones though, featured in today's post!

    Thanks for linking up with us for Weekend Update! Sounds like a fun weekend going wine hopping. And you look adorable! I can't imagine looking cute in snow. I'd be so afraid of freezing haha 🙂
