Shop the look:

Guess what? There was another snowstorm in Wisconsin this week. Shocking, I know. Haha. It sure makes for some pretty photos, though. And in case you couldn’t tell. I really love using these pine trees as a backdrop. The way the snow sticks to them makes it look like I’m living in a winter wonderland!

And when you’re living in a winter wonderland, you have to bundle up a bit. I’m really loving hats at the moment. I don’t have as much hair on my head as I did the past several winters…so, hats have been a big plus to keep my noggin warm this year! This is one of a few that were actually Christmas gifts from my husband’s stepmom. I love the button details on it! (Thank you, Lori!)

My sweater is another one that I’ve had since high school. I still remember buying it, because I had gotten such a good deal on it on the clearance rack at Hollister. ($10!) I don’t believe I’ve stepped foot in a Hollister in about 12 years, but I certainly have quite a few leftovers from my high school days!

This skirt paired with these socks and shoes, is one of my favorite combos. I feel like I can pair just about any top with them and it works. I actually have to be careful not to wear them too often. Haha. This skirt is one of my favorites because I can wear it year round…and it’s one of those magical pieces of clothing that doesn’t wrinkle! If I don’t ever have to iron it, you better believe I’m in love with it. Haha.

I had been outside during the storm shoveling. So, I took a moment to snap a few photos while I was out there, too. It was really pretty! I couldn’t believe how much snow we had gotten in just a couple hours…but that’s Wisconsin for you!

  1. How pretty is that snow?! Everything has melted in Chicago already, which is a huge relief given the last few years. I love this outfit–the colors complement the background so well, and that hat is adorable!

    1. Thank you so much, Devinne! Everything is starting to melt again today…so, I guess it didn’t last too long here either. 🙂

  2. In love with this outfit!! It just looks so pretty and cosy at the same time.
    I love the grey and white together.
    I’m a big fan of hats! But then again, not being a fan of hats isn’t really an option in northern Sweden. But yeah – I love hats! I think they are a fun way to add to your outfit!
    Much love,

    1. Aw. Thank you so much, Mona! And you look awesome in hats! Haha, but I do see how they can be a bit of a necessity in Sweden. 🙂

  3. These photos are gorgeous! I love your outfit against the background!! I can’t believe you’ve had that sweater since high school. And I love that the skirt is non iron, especially with the pleats. I also love the socks with the shoes. This is such a beautiful post!

  4. What an adorable outfit. I find it rare that I actually like an entire outfit but this one I do. I am especially crazy about the shoes. They are sooo cute. I want a pair. I want the entire look haha 😀

    1. Thank you so much! I wish these exact shoes were still in stock, but it looks like they’re sold out on ModCloth right now. 🙁

  5. Wow – it’s so pretty there!! We’ve been having some crazy weather recently – it was almost 70 outside this week! I’m also a big hat wearer 🙂

    1. Oh wow that’s crazy that it’s almost 70! It’s a bit warmer here than normal, but we’re still below freezing. Haha.

  6. Dear Lindsey,

    I just adore this outfit!! Your sweater and wrinkle-free skirt are so cute and I just LOVE how you style cute socks with skirts. I am learning so much from you. :0)



  7. Super cute outfit!!! Love the stripes with the green, and then ALL white…everywhere haha! I never got super into Hollister or Abercrombie but the few things I did have from them are still tucked away in my closet! They have held up! XO

    1. Thank you so much, Lauren! And I’m surprised how well their stuff held up! High school was a long time ago, haha.

  8. So pretty! We finally got snow here in MA, and I actually had a snow day today. Always fun to get that call in the morning…no school! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂


    1. Thank you, Jen! And yay for a snow day! Glad you guys finally got some snow! 🙂 I hope you have a great weekend, too!
