Evergreen Lake

I took a little relaxing Sunday adventure to Evergreen Lake today with Eric. We've been mostly in pajamas all weekend, because I've been home with a cold. But it was good to get dressed and get outside. We've had insane weather this weekend with yesterday almost hitting 60 and today felt freezing. I honestly don't like the jumping temperatures; I'd rather winter just be winter. Let it snow! Plus, I swear I get sick anytime we have such drastic changes in the weather. Here's hoping for perfect health this week though. It's going to be a busy one!


I have my final practice and show with Circle Maybe this week. Ah! Crazy, right? It's been an amazing few years but we're all moving on and ready to wrap it up. You can download all of our music here for free and we're having a half off sale on all merch too. On Wednesday, Eric and I are starting a 6-week puppy training course with Winny! I'm really excited. And Thursday, I'm starting a zumba class with a couple of girlfriends. Next weekend, Eric and I will be in Holland because he's playing drums for a band. Phew! I'm excited though. I honestly like having plans and being busy.


I've been a little stumped at what to wear lately. Autumn, spring and summer are so easy. And I feel like winter should be too, but when winter doesn't look like winter... I'm at a loss! I've just been trying to collect as much inspiration as I can on Pinterest and go from there. I saw an outfit recently with a navy coat and white dress, and I loved it. So I thought I'd give it a try! Plus, this is the first time I'm wearing the boots Eric bought me for Christmas on the blog! They are my absolute favorite. He honestly spoiled me.

  6. This is a really pretty outfit! I love those boots Eric has good taste. And I love the white dress with the navy coat great pair. Sounds like a busy couple of months, I am excited to hear all about it.

  8. I love that dress! It looks like it would be so easy to dress up/down with it. I recently bought a short-sleeved lace dress that is similar, but I like the line of the skirt on yours much better.

  15. This is such a pretty outfit. I love the blue paired with the white, it makes it look so crisp. It was the same way here in Buffalo too. My body does the same thing when the weather changes, it's terrible. I can't wait for it to snow again so it feels like winter again.

  16. I think this outfit works really well for winter, with the colors and everything. the weather here in Birmingham has been in the 70s lately, so you're preaching to the choir about winter not looking like winter. :) [or in my case, not feeling like winter!]

  17. So cute! I love this and yes, those boots are amazing! I am kind of jealous that you've had warm days mixed in. It's just been cold cold cold here. And probably will be for a few more months.

  18. I love that dress! I've been looking for a white dress to wear to my bridal shower and this one looks perfect! Love your pairing with the navy coat and dark tights too! I always really enjoy your outfits!

  19. 1. You're gorgeous

    2. Do you shoot your photos in raw format? I just got a Canon T4i for Christmas and I absolutely love it, but my photos are sometimes grainy. Granted, a lot of them are shot indoors in poor lighting. But I could use some tips!

    3. How do the small Circle Maybe tees run? ;)

  20. Your style is always stunning. These pictures are so beautiful! Looks like fun. The weather where I live has been pretty extreme lately as well! You can borrow some of our snow. Haha

  22. You style is just too cute! And I love your hair and the clarity of each photo! They are filled with personality. And I know what you mean about jumping weather. Indy has been all over the place:: Snow & ice then spring warmth & rain then cool temps & forecast for more snow. I see why people are dying from the flu this year. It is crazy out there...(especially here in the midwest)!

  30. That first picture might be my all time favorite picture of you, it's an amazing photo! Your hair looks awesome in these pictures and so does your skin. (But that's actually always the case.)

  31. Ahhh it's insane how good you look! The dress, the jacket, the boots... you are such an style icon for me! I hope you are feeling better, i know how it feels. Winter in Estonia is weird this year too - couple of days ago it was SOOO cold (and yet we still did outfit shots) and now it's barely over zero and weird to be outside.. I think I have also that tendency to get sick every time the temperature changes so radically 0.o Anyways, AWESOME outfit!

  41. The white dress is awesome. I totally agree about not liking temperatures going all over the place (same thing is happening where I live and it's SO annoying. the weather just needs to make up its mind)
