Clothing is art for your body . . . that's what I've decided. Everyday, when I get dressed I have the opportunity to put together something beautiful. Half the time I'm lazy and just throw on whatever, but I've been trying to put more thought into my outfits. It's fun and challenging to find new ways to style pieces I already have in my wardrobe. I, of course, also enjoy shopping and finding new clothing treasures.
I bought this adorable trench coat recently and have been itching to wear it for a couple months. We finally had a few days of springtime weather about a week or so ago. Since then, winter has returned in full force with loads of snow and wind. But for a few days I was able to enjoy some decent temperatures. The three days of spring gave me a chance to sport my trench coat but along with warmer air came melting snow. Puddles started to form and the snow was getting rotten. Rotten snow banks are like half melted, but still appear solid so when you try to walk on them you fall in ankle deep, thigh high, you just never know. All that to say, I just can't ditch the big rubber boots no matter how stylish I wish to be. So, they just have to go together up here, style and common sense.
In my endeavor to beef up the fashion in my life, I've been taking inspiration from a few blogs by some pretty awesome ladies. They're beautiful, they're fashionable and thrifty too.

Oh, there's more I follow but I especially enjoy hearing and seeing these girls' take on life and fashion.
Though I don't think I can quite hang with the big girls yet, I had fun taking my first fashion photos.
