In honor of Valentines day, I will be shopping my closet (like I did for new years eve) to find the best Valentine Day outfit. Snow doesn't fall often here in Atlanta, so my boyfriend Chris and I knew we wanted to take some photos in the snow. I threw together an outfit that I'd wear on a date and we went to Grant Park to shoot. In these photos it doesn't even seem like we are in the city. Snow makes it feel so magical out.
Skirt: Actually a vintage dress (same dress seen here) (similar one)
Turtle neck: Black & white stripe from target (similar)
fur vest: Old Navy (find similar here)
Belt: Thrifted (similar)
Leather Jacket: Gap (similar)
Necklace: Vintage (chris' grandma's) (similar)
Gloves: Target (similar)
Boots: Target (similar)
Stay warm out there!!! But mostly- just have fun, this doesn't happen often. SNOWLO!
Oh, and Ill be posting more outfits leading up to valentines day, and will do a little re-cap at the end :)
and P.S.- I actually wasn't freezing at all....I had fleece lined tights, fleece lined leggings and then leather leggings underneath the dress, with wool socks and boots. I was toasty!
So as the whole country knows- Atlanta had a 'snow storm' that started Tuesday afternoon around 11:30. I was at work, until 2:30. We had a regular dismissal time, so as soon as the kids were gone, so was I. I do not work in a very good area of Atlanta and I was not about to get stranded there. Unfortunately, some of the teachers at my school did get stuck- or didn't make it home until the next morning. So I am VERY, VERY thankful that I made it home safe and sound. I did get down to 14 miles left in my gas tank, and started to worry- but luckily found a gas station and took back streets home.
Despite all the chaos it has caused the city, we made the most of it. Tuesday night we hit the 'slopes' and got drinks with friends across the park. Yesterday Chris and I went out adventuring (had a little photo shoot) and grabbed some coffee. Thats the great thing about living in a neighborhood in the city- you can walk where ever you may need to go, and businesses stay open because they know they will make bank! Atlanta looks so beautiful under a blanket of snow. I will enjoy it while its here. Fingers crossed for one more snow day- as Monday is my b-day and this would make for the best early bday present!
Happy Monday Everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have gotten your week off to a good start this morning!
This weekend (in about 15 minutes) I did this little DIY heart sweatshirt. I had all the supplies just laying around the house. Chris and I went into the studio yesterday, so I took it with me to snap a few photos of how I would style it. I LOVE- LOVE, so I will be doing a lot of valentines day crafts and outfits on here I'm sure!
