So this scarf goes with everything I own. And it’s soft and cozy, but also lightweight enough for warm-ish weather. So, ya know, an MVP. Which means that, naturally, it got so fantastically stuck in a coat zipper last month that I spent 10 full minutes – no lie – trying to extract it before giving up and cutting it carefully free. (It was stuck high enough that it also meant I was trapped inside the coat. Lots of fun, let me tell ya.) The hole is tiny, but still – I was livid. Luckily it’s also voluminous enough that the hole can be easily disguised. Or so I hope!

Pretty in Batik

You wouldn’t normally associate batik with a jumpsuit – typically, its worn as a dress or a men’s blouse, or as a sarong. So when I chanced upon this unique beauty on Asos, I knew it was going to be mine!

What I love most about the jumpsuit is how soft and lightweight it is. The culotte pant sizes are a really nice touch on this fabric.

For the longest time, statement necklaces have been my favourite accessory. Come to think of it, I’ve been obsessed with them for over a decade! This year however I’m keen on statement earrings. This pair from Lovisa is a new favourite.

Wow. So spring doesn’t generally arrive in Minneapolis until May – I am NOT kidding/exaggerating – but there’s the very real possibility that it’s arrived now and is here to stay. Which means, once again, I’ve got a backlog of snowy photos that don’t match up to the current weather. Including this super comfy weekend outfit that brought together some of my favorites – the jacket, pants, and ankle boots.
