I am so happy it’s finally cold here in VA! I know many people love the warm weather, but I want my winter to feel like winter and to be able to wear all my layers.

I had to run an errand to the all dreaded Walmart (I’m a Target gal!), where of all places I found this gorgeous lace trimmed sweater. I love random style finds like that- especially at a the great price of $13.95. I tried to link it online, but I couldn’t find it; they have a lot of in-store only items. You never know where you will find a style steal! Btw did you notice- no topknot! I can’t even remember the last time I wore my hair down like this, so happy to be cold enough to wear my favourite beanie though.

So far 2016 has been going well for me, hence all the smiles in these photos. After taking these photos my Sweet Baboo and I had a coffee date with some wonderful conversation.  I hope all of you are having a great year so far as well loves!

    Hi Kait,
    Your outfit is perfect for these strange days we’ve been having in the DC area lately. Layers is a good idea when it’s so cool in the morning, but gets warm. Very cute and love the backdrop too!

    Its true, Walmart can be unavoidable sometimes ( I’m a Target girl all the way) but they do sometimes have some cute finds for a great price. Love the boots too! -Anna
