Winter Staples & An Update

I really don't know where this year has gone. I think the older I get, the quicker time seems to pass me by. Somehow November is already here and with that, much cooler temperatures have arrived. Of course, in Louisiana, we won't have 'winter' until about January. 

I think dresses and skirts are fine in winter but something about the cold months makes me lazy and I always want to wear pants. It just takes too much effort to put on tights and skirts sometimes. The look above is one that would be a winter staple of mine. The top, pants, and the coat are so versatile and I can imagine several looks incorporating all three pieces throughout the winter.


I know I've been MIA the past few weeks and for that I am only slightly sorry. It's been nice reading other blogs and not feeling the pressure to post anything. I've also been really sick the past two weeks and super busy on top of that.

I'm wrapping up my pilates training this week and I have my first real client this morning (wish me luck!!!). I'm 23 weeks along with this pregnancy and only have 17 to go (I'm sure you could have done the math), but I still feel like there is so much to do! My next big hurdle is to choreograph seven dances for recital and teach them in January. When I'm done with that, I feel like I will be able to relax again. Hope you are doing well! 


  1. J'aime the leather and grey coat; so original! Like the leather details, and the grey color for cold weather :)

  3. And why can't anyone make tights that are comfortable? Would that be asking too much?

    I love that you don't feel bad for being MIA- blogging shouldn't be a chore! Good luck with all your big events!

  4. I was just thinking about you is morning, glad you're doing well! Yay for 17 more weeks!

  5. I've missed reading your blog! But I figured you were busy with the pregnancy :) I also prefer to wear pants in the gets freezing here in Jersey and sometimes tights/dress just don't cut it!

  7. First of all, I love the winter look! That coat is goooooorgeous. Secondly, I'm sorry you've been not feeling well and super busy, but I'm happy that the Pilates thing is going well-- good luck! I hope things slow down for you a bit soon, I can't imagine being as busy as you are AND pregnant on top of it! Be well, lady.

  11. oh my goodness, that coat is stunning. 7 dances... omg. I'm sure they're going to be amazing though. When in doubt, resort to classic 80's moves. lol. Fabulous as always, love. If you get a moment, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest interview. :) xo
