Like A Hurricane

I really hate inclement weather because it mostly makes everyone all excited and irrational. I've always been the person who ignores weather. I drove to Louisville and around the strangely amazing and dead city while it was covered in ice in 2009 and like all the street lights and power were out (see here). So I still find it weird that my work was closed for two days and that I made the decision to leave for a day so that in the high chance all hell broke loose I was in Ohio and not trapped in Harrisburg. It was worth it just to get good pizza and bagels and some of the awesome apple cider spice blend that was sitting in my in laws home when I got there.

So when I end up at Target and there is no water left, I buy nail polish, because obviously, that's gonna help me. To my defense, Essie's winter collection is totally adorable.

  5. This dress is adorable. I wish I was more like you. I hate weather and I'm basically terrified of snow. I hibernate.

  6. I looove this outfit and these photos!! Such a wonderful combination of that pretty floral dress and the jacket and scarf. I am constantly checking the weather, we get such bizarre weather here sometimes and it definitely controls my life in the winter months.

  7. I never ignore the weather since it's actually the number one thing I'm terrified of, haha! I seriously go into a panic attack/frenzy when there is any kind of mention of tornadoes within a 100 mile radius of where I live. I have just always been terrified of them for some reason. So odd!

    You look gorgeous anyways, I love your color mixes and your floral dress just brightens up everything so much :). you're gorgeous <3

  10. Another reason why I hate not living in America: we have no Target! This dress is so beautiful. And I think I'm officially on the look out for a cozy hat now.

  18. glad to hear you got out and into a safe place! did harrisburg get damage after all? either way it's always better to be safe than sorry since i know that's how a lot of people get hurt thinking it'd never happen. I def feel for everyone suffering and w/ losses over there but honestly was quite jealous of friends who had days off also but no damage whatsoever around them (or maybe they were under-exaggerating not to scare me?). anywho, you look adorable! I like that little dress remixed for fall : )

  22. My work wasn't closed for the hurricane either, so it was bizarre that my friends didn't have work when I did.

    Your outfit here is so cute, and it looks so cozy! The beanie is adorable.

  23. I don't pay that much attention to weather reports either, but this has led to me getting stranded because of road closures a lot, especially in college (my alma mater's town regularly had road closures about once every two weeks or so October to May).

    This is a cute, cute dress! Glad that you are doing well.

  24. Love that your scarf is handmade! Is it an infinity scarf?

  26. "So when I end up at Target and there is no water left, I buy nail polish, because obviously, that's gonna help me." So funny! But it's like something I would do as well. Haha! Lovin' the cute bag, by the way! Such cozy style. :)
