I'd like to think I've always appreciated a beautiful day. But now, as a fashion blogger (should I capitalize that, Fashion Blogger? maybe you'll take me more seriously?...), a beautiful day means a great opportunity for an outfit shoot. We had beautiful weather on Saturday and Matt and I drove up to the St. Jacob's Farmer's Market. On the way home I kept asking to pull over and do an outfit shoot but the truth was, my outfit was all function and Matt was a little lost, so he had other things on his mind. After going back and forth across a bridge 4 times, we did make it home along a gorgeous scenic route. I was glad however, when Sunday ended up being a glorious day as well. The setting sun on a clear winter day across snowy fields is a reminder that a cold winter isn't all bad news.
I feel a little jet-set in this outfit (especially in the last photo where I'm yelling at Matt that we had enough shots and we needed to get back to the car...now). The big bag, the over-sized sunglasses and the expansive blue sky give the impression that I have a plane to catch and somewhere important to be. And I did. No, I didn't have a shareholders meeting in NYC or a client waiting for me in Dubai , I had a family dinner. And with my brother and his wife leaving again soon, and most of my family in one city, I think it's pretty important to take advantage of family time when it arises.

I just created a DIY project sweater that looks just like the one you are wearing, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to pair with it. This just gave me so great inspiration- thank you!

You look stunning as always and i love your bag!!

This outfit is so classy and gorgeous! Your sweater is too adorable with that bow detailing...it reminds me of an updated Elsa Schiaparelli design.

Great photo shoot! I love the outfit. I am obsessing over boots right now because we're so deeply into winter here. The skirt, sweater, boots, and gloves work so well together. Inspiring.
