The first snow . . .

Isn't the first snow always beautiful? Especially when you wake up and overnight everything has magically been blanketed by white. This happened last week in Chicago and I took a few pictures.

My snowy street!

Happy Friday! I'm off to grab drinks and dinner with my big sis who is in for the weekend. I'm excited, we've got some good things planned and even a project in my dining area that I'll share on here (if it goes well!). Hope everyone enjoys the weekend.

Winter Wardrobe, black patent belt

I'm starting a new series to get through the blustery days of Winter. Why not talk clothes? I'm going to be posting several favorites in my winter wardrobe or items I'd like to have! Hopefully you guys will get some good ideas and share things with me too!

Wearing this belt again today reminded me that I need to share with the blog world! I used to think I could never wear belts in the trendy way that's so popular right now. Then, I found this belt at Nordstrom. Problem solved!

It's the perfect patent leather black belt that works on any body type. The front is patent and the rest is stretchy black elastic, which allows you to put it over anything. The belt is a nice larger size, but not so big that it looks gaudy or odd.  Lately, I've been wearing it to work over a ruffled shirt and cardigan. It also works really well over dresses or blazers. It's very versatile. The belt is Lauren by Ralph Lauren.

I also just saw online that it comes in brown with a faux crocodile texture. What do you guys think? Would you wear this belt or do you already have something similar that you like?

Words for Wednesday

Right on cue, we got our first real snow in Chicago today. Mother Nature must have planned that to coincide with the first day of December! I always think the first snow is kind of magical. Something about seeing those big flakes float down from the sky. And my feet were pretty excited to cozy up in their Uggs today. I'll be singing a far different tune come February, but for now, I'll enjoy it. Here's to a white Christmas!
