My spaghetti noodle arms (along with the rest of me) have officially gone into hibernation; no more tank tops, t-shirts, shorts or sundresses.  I have traded in all my summer gear for mountains of layers in hopes of actually staying warm this winter . . . you would never, in a million years, guess that I grew up in Alaska, seeing the way I bundle up when it dips below 70 degrees!  Thankfully it was not as cold as it looked yesterday, so I did not need to bust out all 23 layers quite yet; but I did finally get to break in my snazzy Express pants that I have been holding out on.  I picked these up a couple months ago, but have been waiting for the cooler weather to hit - so that teeny, tiny sliver of me was sorta-kinda glad to see the clouds roll in.  I was so excited to dress up these fancy pants in true lady-like fashion, with a silky button-up, pointy toe pumps and gold jewels; and was even more excited when I realized a fur vest would be the perfect topper when it gets even colder . . . until it hit me that I don't have a fur vest . . . minor detail.

  9. This is a stunning look on you. The bold red of your pants is perfect for making the print of your blouse pop. Your accessories only add to this great look and don't take anything away. great look and great balance.

  34. Beautiful outfit! I'm the same way about the weather. I grew up in Connecticut and live in Florida now and it dipped into the 60's yesterday and I was soooo cold! We went to an outdoor event last night and I was literally hanging out by the outdoor heat lamps most of the night! It was shameful.. haha.
