:: Sweater Weather ::

Oklahoma got a snow day – Dallas was just flat-out cold.

We spent (semi-snowy) Sunday recovering from being wedding weekend warriors (think that brings us to lucky number seven this year) and catching up on work. Taylor and I argue over who has the better neighborhood constantly, but Sunday he brought his A game.

Less than a block away, he located the most incredible coffee/wine shop which felt like my little piece of Oklahoma in the middle of Dallas. We walked in and it was perfect. Warm air hit my face and a sea of comfortable couches filled my eyes. The latte was incredible, the football game was playing (silently!!!), and I was in heaven. Plus, any barista who can make latte designs will keep my business.

While it was freezing (literally) out, this sweater practically acted as a coat! In our home, we didn’t wear coats growing up. When you’re heading to a mall, the last thing you want to do is lug around a big coat. So we either required our driver to drop us off (that’s what dads are for) or ran from the car to the door.

If you’ve seen me run, take a moment to soak that image in. If you haven’t, click here.

:: Casual Kicks ::

You know when you have an image in your mind, but just can’t find exactly what you’re looking for? That’s me. Basically, every day. I spend more time than I care to admit googling and pinteresting different variations of key words, just waiting for the right thing to pop up. Currently, I’m seeking a variation of midi skirts, leopard high heeled booties, and the perfect oversized sweater.

These shoes? Prime example of my patience finally paying off. I loved the tan/gold variations I kept finding, but with as much as I wear any form of sneaker to begin with, I wasn’t about to pay an arm and a leg on a shoe that I might end up hating in a year. I found an incredible black wedge sneaker with a white sole, but it just didn’t seem right for me. (Such a Goldilocks!) Finally, I just happened to be roaming aimlessly through Kohl’s with my mom and these jumped out at me for a whopping $34.99. Why hadn’t I thought of silver to begin with?! Not only are these the most comfortable shoes I own, but they are perfect for Thunder games and even better as my set-up shoes on the day of events! You might think the wedge would be uncomfortable, but it’s actually quite cushiony and thus far, has served me well. This is a trend I never saw myself succumbing to, but I am SO glad I did!
