I’m not going to lie, outfit pictures have been/probably will be few and far between for awhile. For those of you who aren’t experiencing the polar vortex, it can be summed up in one word: painful. Even a few seconds outside feels like whiplash. I wish I could say that I’ve been wearing cute outfits despite the weather. That, however, is just not the case. My morning routine looks something like this: slip on J.Crew pixie pants, struggle to find a sweater I haven’t been wearing on repeat, do absolutely nothing to my hair, and put on a swipe of red lip stain (to look put together). Not exactly picture worthy!
Even though Valentine’s Day is a few weeks away (and will likely be freezing), I’m using it as an excuse to want all things pink and red. While in the past I would have opted for pink or red, I’m really loving how they look worn together. The real struggle is figuring out how to wear it in the winter. My fingers are crossed that I’ll pull together the perfect pink and red look, but if the weather doesn’t permit, accessories are a must!

Same here- it’s unbearable out there! I’m losing enthusiasm for dressing, which is frankly, just not right!! I love your Valentine’s Day inspiration though! Maybe I should just start thinking of that instead! :)!!
Glad I’m not alone! I just do not care right now! I’m using Valentine’s Day as an excuse to not think about the cold!
Those heels are too cute! You’ve picked some fun pieces to help anyone through these freezing temperatures. And I LOVE that clutch!
How cute is the striped heel!? Looking at bright colors is the only thing getting me through right now!
In the vortex here, wearing Sorels, Jeans, Sweater and big coat/hat. FREEZING.
Oh no! I feel your pain (or should I say frostbite). That sounds like the perfect cold weather uniform!
ohhh I love them all! I hear you, I’ve resorted to taking bad indoor photos because of the frigid temps
I love them, too! I should probably do indoor pictures, but my laziness has taken over!
Okay, LOVING that lips dress- so cute and perfect for Valentine’s! Great post, doll!
How amazing!? I am so tempted to get it!
I love that Alice + Olivia dress! I have been eyeing it forever and with our lack of winter weather in SF it may end up in my closet!
So have I! I go to the Alice + Olivia site just to look at it, which is embarrassing! You should totally get it with your nice SF weather!
Love these picks! What fun colors. 🙂
THAT DRESS THOUGH! Sorry for the caps but I had to emphasize how happy it just made me, neeed it!
I know, right!? I can’t even explain how obsessed I am. Like, I might have to splurge.
I like the pink and red accessories. I have a feeling that it won’t quite be dress weather yet in Cincinnati!
I know! I’m in denial right now, but I already know my Valentine’s Day outfit will probably be all black and as warm as possible!
Love your picks Olivia! I would love that TB clutch or that hot pink dress for Valentines! Thankfully we’re not experiencing the polar vortex, although we hear about it a lot on the news. I can only image how frigid it is, stay warm and hold off on the outfit posts until it warms up!

Thanks Jen! You’re so lucky you don’t have this weather! I think a trip to BC sounds amazing right now! Enjoy the weather 🙂
Great selections! This post reminded me a new wallet on the Kate Spade website… super cute: http://www.katespade.com/2-park-avenue-lacey/PWRU3530,en_US,pd.html?dwvar_PWRU3530_color=680&dwvar_PWRU3530_size=UNS&cgid=ks-accessories-wallets#start=10&cgid=ks-accessories-wallets. Stay warm!
That’s so funny, I was going to put that wallet on my collage and ran out of room! It’s adorable!
I hoped I wasn’t the only one struggling with the weather. .it’s truly unbearable and frankly depressing. 🙁 I tried and tried to make some pics I took outside yesterday work but with the snow falling, wind blowing and me grimacing they just wouldn’t. I hope it warms up for everyone soon! Love this post..Can’t wait to see your warmer weather posts too! Cortneybre
I know! I don’t even feel cute this time of year. It’s depressing! Hopefully we can catch a break soon with some better weather!
