The weekend brings the cold...

This weekend has brought me the worst cold ever!  I was super close to just not posting tonight but, as I sat and watched the season premiere of Big Love I thought, "No, I will stick to my resolution of consistency and I am just sitting here...so..." and thus here is the post.

So despite my cold, I managed to go to the Goodwill and I am so glad I did because I found an amazing shift dress with the best pattern!  I am excited because I adore pieces that have both black and brown shades in them (they are more versatile!).  I took some quick shots of it so just ignore that horrible look of sickness and pain on my face!




Anyways, I have been really wanting a pair of oxfords lately since I keep seeing them all over the blogs.  So I actually purchased a pair on DSW because I had some coupon codes.  I feel like they will be great for now with some thick leggings but also in the spring.  I bought black but I plan to search out some brown ones once my husband starts bringing in money from his new contract job!  (I haven't mentioned that yet but, he just got hired on for 2 and half months as a contractor!) 

So like many of you, I have been just praying for the cold to end early this year!  I am probably even more egged on by this due to both my current cold sickness as well as all the amazing collections I am seeing across my favorite brands. Hopefully, the rest of winter will go by fast!

I've been wearing my really ugly 'extreme snow' boots since Thursday... very unfashionable but practical! I can't believe how much snow we have here. :( I also have a pair of (brown) high heeled oxfords that I bought at DSW last autumn. They're so comfy.

Love the new dress, I have one with similar colours/pattern... I'll have to take a pic of it soon.

Oh also started a new project you might be interested in... am participating in the 365 Project where you take a photo a day, every day for a year! http://show-ntell.blogspot.com/
