When in doubt, top it off with a hat! Without going off on a long rant, my hair is insane this time of year. The second I put on a coat/scarf or walk outside, I’m done for. The static is permanent. I’m going to need some Static Guard and dryer sheets to carry around in my purse at this point. These pictures were taken a few days after Christmas, before another round of snow arrived. I spent the new year here in Cincinnati, but drove my boyfriend back to Cleveland on New Year’s Day.
I think I was a little exhausted and hungover during my quick pack for Cleveland. My bag consisted of two pairs of pants, a few sweaters, and a pair of Tory Burch flats. Cleveland is straight up painful in the winter thanks to Lake Erie. We arrived to 10 degree weather and what looked like a foot of snow. For some reason, I forgot how cold it would be. I basically lived in the pair of booties I wore on the drive up. Flats would have instantly given me frostbite, so a pair of heeled booties had to do all the work. To anyone who lives in Cleveland: I respect you. I felt like I was on vacation when I arrived back in Cincinnati to 40 degree weather.
On a sports-related rant, the Bengals got humiliated yesterday. I was enjoying some Dos Equis when I realized early in the game it wasn’t going to end well. By the fourth quarter, I had curled up in my bed and fallen asleep. I unfortunately woke up right when the Chargers scored the final touchdown, sealing the deal. I go into a few day long depression every time the Reds and Bengals lose in the playoffs (which is every year). This game was no different, and now I’m just counting down the days until Reds Opening Day (85).

So I absolutely love this outfit! The hat, the BOOTS, everything. I cannot even imagine how painful the weather was. 10 degrees – Crazy! Glad you’re back and enjoying somewhat warmer temperatures.
Thank you Grace! I thought that was bad until I woke up this morning and it was -4. I spoke too soon!
I’ve been looking for a hat myself – a felt had like Rachel Zoe wears. Maybe I’ll look at Anthropologie – I have a hard time looking past JCrew.
I looked at J.Crew too, with no luck! Definitely check out Anthro. They had a lot of good hats when I was there!
Eeeeeek those boots!!! Are they comfortable (as I hit submit order)…
PS Nice to see sunshine with all the snow you just got hehe
SO COMFORTABLE!! The weather gods hate me. I need to book a flight to LA!

Thank you, Shannon! I know, hair static is the worst. Once I put a coat on, it’s game over.
The hat looks so great on you! I still haven’t found a hat that looks flattering on me. I don’t know what it is. Any tips?
Thank you Jen! I was the exact same way, and thought hats looked terrible on me. I think hats with a wider brim look better on me, so maybe try that!
That hat looks so great on you! I still haven’t found a hat that I found attractive on me–any tips for hat buying? 🙂
Love that hat. It is adorable.
Thank you Jodi!
So chic! Love those ankle boots. That sounds SO cold… I’m shivering here in Portland and it’s in the 40’s! 😛
