❄️ Snow Day ❄️

Yesterday was a snow day in Southeast Texas, but we only got sleet. I’m a little salty about that. We were indoors pigging our on king cake and chips and salsa 😩. Our first and last true snow day was back in December, and my sons and I had a blast.

We don’t get snow days often, so when we do, they’re extremely memorable. So because we were snow-less, I’ll show some of our pics from the last snow day.

Baby boy was truly amazed.

He was super excited about a snowball fight

He’s not too fond of the snow.

Even though we had no snow day yesterday, our December snow day was pretty cool. It inspired me to plan a vacation to somewhere with better snow. As a kid I lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and I think it’d be pretty cool to take the boys. I vividly remember our snow days there.

Do you enjoy snow days? What are some of your favorite winter destinations? Do you live in a place that gets snow regularly during the winter?

I’d love to make friends with other moms in various cities. I just think it’d be cool to say “Hey! We’re going to visit insert name here over in DC this winter”.

In the age of social media, we have opportunities to make friends all over, but I think we’re all scared for whatever reasons.

Anyhow, I’m still salty about no snow yesterday!

Pastels in Winter, whaaaat?

It’s 2018, and people are still holding onto those traditional rules of fashion. “Don’t wear white after Labor Day, no bright colors in winter”.

Where is it written that we HAVE to wear dark colors in winter?

Wherever it is, throw the whole book away 🚮

Just last week my mom was freaking out about a wearing a dress because it was too bright.

I personally feel as if bright colors should purposely be worn in winter. I think the colors will liven your spirits as most of us are already salty about the cold.

With anything, it’s not what you wear but how you wear it.

Make your winter wardrobe pop with some pastels. Wear that pastel peacoat over your favorite turtle neck, dark wash denim, and a fly bootie.

With your personal style, your winter pastel possibilities are endless.

The dress featured in this post, I’ve owned since November 2016. It was originally purchased to wear to the Formation World Tour. ( Check out that experience here ) Thanks to a mix up, it was delivered the day of, and I had to scramble for an alternate, as the dress would be delivered while I was en route to the show.

As a person who would wait for a special occasion to wear items in my wardrobe, I’m telling you to WEAR YOUR PIECES. The occasion may never come, so wear them.

Bottom line, wear what you want, when you want, how you want.
