Three words, 19 letters, say it and I’m yours: fleece. lined. leggings.
(Anyone else binge-watch Gossip Girl over the past three days? Tell me I’m not the only one.)
After being cooped up inside for nearly 48 hours, I was able to get out yesterday and walk around a bit. Because the Virginia Department of Transportation was still urging motorists to stay put, and because I drive a Civic, I didn’t make it too far. But the Vitamin D, fresh air, and opportunity to re-stock on wine was good for my soul.
In all seriousness, I’m pretty sure there is no way I can over-emphasize how lucky I am that I not only have a roof over my head, money to pay my heating bill, and a covered garage and full maintenance staff on-hand. I was able to avoid any and all shoveling, and while its a workout better than PX90, I’ll take a treadmill and the Kardashians any day of the week.
My snow-weekend started off on the right foot. I went into work for a few hours on Friday and then spent the rest of the afternoon imbibing Budweiser’s finest products with my coworkers.
The real brunt of the storm set in on Saturday, as did my hangover. My roommate and I pretty much hung out inside all day, talking how we couldn’t believe it was still snowing, burning our multitude of candles, and reading. I actually finished two books—A Summer Affair and Primates of Park Avenue—and did absolutely nothing for my blog, work, or school. It was basically a mini-vacation that would have only been improved if I had the foresight to buy guacamole.
(Note to self—always buy the guacamole.)
Ask my mom or my best friends, but I usually like to dress up no matter where I’m going. But there’s just something about snow that makes me revert to clothing that could almost pass as pajamas.
For the past three days, I’ve lived in these fleece lined leggings and oversized sweater. I mean, if no one sees you in the outfit, it’s fair game to repeat it, right? (Roommates don’t count.) And you can bet your bottom dollar it’s what I’m wearing today as I work from home.
So for those of you still digging yourselves out, I salute you and empathize with you. (Why not treat yourself to some fleece lined leggings? Too pushy? Sorry, but they’re life-changing.)
For those of you in a tropical climate, I envy you and one day, hopefully before I’m 65, I will be among your kind.
For those of you also working from home today, let’s drink later! ;]

Your relaxing weekend sounds absolutely perfect…has me wishing I was snowed in! And this outfit is styled so well. I love the white sweater against the snowy background and the pop of red just makes it that much better! Stay warm!

Sometimes it really is nice to have nowhere to go :] Thank you so much! xx
You look absolutely adorable!
Thank you, C! xx
Fleece lined leggings are my savior every winter! I bought about 10 pairs while I was at school in New York!
Yes! They really come through in the clutch :]
Yay for snow days! Your outfit is the cutest! Those fleece-lined leggings sound amazing. Awesome that you were able to get so much reading done!
Thank you so much, Rachel! You’re always so sweet! xx
I love the pop of red you have going on with your boots! So adorable! I have a hard time wearing color (it’s a talent, I swear) so the idea of getting some color in through a shoe is awesome!
Aw thank you so much, Kelsey! Usually my winter wardrobe is black, black, and more black! But I bought the red boots in college and love them!
I love this cold weather look! And aren’t fleece-lined leggings the absolute best things ever? They changed my life!
Thanks so much, Anna! They really are.
Even though I’m sure you were feeling a bit stir-crazy, it’s kind of fun to have a real snow day (or in this case, weekend). I still can’t believe how much you guys got down there, but at least it seems to be warming up a little bit.
Loving this simple outfit…and the leggings!
Something About That
Yes! It definitely is nice to be snowed in with nowhere to go. Today it was almost balmy! xx

Cute snow look! Love the plaid scarf!

Thanks so much, C!
Ugh, fleece lined leggings sound like a dream!
Too bad Texas goes from like 40 to 75 in the course of a day.
I’d love to see a little snow around these parts.
Hope you had a great snow-weekend.
Ah yes, fleece lined leggings probably wouldn’t come in handy as much as they do in Texas. Thanks so much Jenny :]
I love your boots and scarf! So cute!
Thanks so much! xx
