faux fur

Sweater:  French Connection from TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Vest:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Jeans:  Banana Republic  |  Necklace:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Watch:  Michael Kors (similar here)  |  Earrings:  Etsy  |  Sunglasses:  Lola  |  Bag:  Michael Kors  |  Heels:  Nordstrom Rack Enzo Angiolini (similar here)

Happy Chowderfest Ya'll!  It was a cold one today, but this was shot earlier this week where the weather was bearable!  Check out some fun photos on Instagram of the adventures @closetsandcorks and see what I'll be doing Sunday with a girlfriend! :)

Poncho:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Sweater:  Loft (similar here)  |  Jeans:  Banana Republic  |  Booties:  6pm (similar here)  |  Bag:  Michael Kors  |  Scarf:  Loft (similar here)

It's a bright and sunny day in this shoot {but it's been snowing all day today} so I opted out of wearing a coat and pulled over this poncho!  It's so great to wear layers, but not have to wear coats when running in and out of the stores!  It gets SO warm sometimes!  Plus I can add a colorful or stripe sweater underneath for a pop!  Tomorrow will change back to cold and I'll have to bundle up for Chowderfest unfortunately!  :(  Don't worry I'll try and get some fun shots of the activities!

warm tones

Sweater:  Gap  |  Turtleneck:  J.Crew  |  Leggings:  Gap  |  Scarf:  Etsy  |  Vest:  Gap (similar here)  |  Booties:  6pm (similar here)  |  Boots:  Hunter Wellies  |  Bag:  Longchamp  |  Headband:  Lola  |  Earrings:  Etsy

Today I'm channeling these warm tones as yet another storm approaches.  The wind was whipping around on this shoot so I should have tossed my hair up, but opted for another cute headband from Lola!  I also wanted to show it with two pairs of boots that I love - I swear I need more opportunity to wear my wellies!

Saturday is the annual Saratoga Chowderfest, which is always a good time with my friends, but it's supposed to be a cold one!  I'll have to get a cute {I mean warm} outfit together here tonight for it!

cozy by the fireplace

Sweater:  Calvin Klein purchased at TJ Maxx in plus size for the oversized look - similar here  |  Leggings:  Gap  |  Slippers:  UGGS  |  Earrings:  Etsy

Sweater:  Nasty Gal  |  Leggings:  Gap  |  |  Earrings:  Etsy

Today I'm channeling warm vibes with two snuggly sweaters as we're getting over the "snow storm" of the century.  The storm  didn't start at 1 am yesterday morning as it said it would, but rather at 11 am.  I was expecting to look out my apartment window and see snow everywhere, but there was nothing!  We got about 3 inches and a lot of wind, but it was a pretty snowfall that's for sure!  As winter lasts up here, I haven't started to channel spring vibes, but I'll be getting there soon!  I'm definitely up for a warm vacation, but it looks like we're staying put this winter.

Valentine's Day for Her

Valentine's Day for Her

What woman doesn't want jewelry, candles, makeup or a new handbag!  These items are too cute to pass up!  If your hunny doesn't treat you to something so nice, you might as well pick these sweet treats up for yourself or a friend! :)

Valentine's Day for Him

Valentine's Day for Him

Valentine's Day is right around the corner!  Are you ready!?  Here are a few ideas for your man's gift, but don't worry, I'll get some ideas ready for your man to give you! ;)  

I worked on a little project for John's gift and his birthday is two days later so I'm planning a ski weekend in VT!

Happy shopping!

green mountain attire

Sweater:  Gap  |  Vest:  Kohl's (similar here in gray or here in blue)   |  Jeans:  Banana Republic  |  Scarf:  Gap (last year) similar here  |  Bag:  Michael Kors  |  Gloves:  The North Face (less expensive version here)  |  Earrings:  Etsy  |  Booties:  Dolce Vita (similar here)

It was a great day skiing at Mount Snow! We did 10+ runs and the day was perfect (almost a little too warm)!  It snowed off and on but was not too cold! It even cleared off for some gorgeous views. FYI - I even did some black diamonds! (SO PROUD) After a great day we grabbed some yummy treats at Stickyfingers {after already having a waffle with chocolate - no judgment!!} and headed back to relax in the hot tub! Such a great day. I'll have to see how I feel for tomorrow if we want to hit up Stratton again...I'll keep you all posted! :)

Here's one more post for the weekend, if I don't get to one Sunday, but check out my Instagram account @closetsandcorks for updates!  I'm happy to wrap up another 2015 work week and enjoy another ski weekend!  

trains, planes and automobiles

I get my hair done next week and I can't wait!  I'll show you the before/after soon.  I went a bit darker last time with my ombre as I didn't want it to look too sunkissed, so some of my natural colors were added back in.   

These Irish Sheepdogs were soooo sweet!

Sweater:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Cardigan:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Leggings:  Gap  |  Flats:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Necklace:  Jennifer Zeuner  |  Bags:  Michael Kors & Longchamp  |

I would say that 99% of the time when I'm traveling I love throwing on a pair of leggings, flats (easy to toss off at the airport security check) and lots of layers!  These are my go-to items and I usually have either this LC bag or a LC travel bag so I don't have to check any items.  I also loved caring a neck pillow wherever I travel too!  It's a lifesaver as I'm the first to crash on a car ride (must have been from all those Midwest road trips) :).  

Speaking of which I'll probably toss this on after work as I will be heading back to VT for a ski/birthday weekend at Mount Snow for a friend! It should be fun!
