Unconditionally by Katy Perry

Happy belated Valentine's Day! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend whether you celebrated the day with a significant other, friends and family, or none of the above. Hubby and I dressed up and went out to a nice dinner Friday night. We had planned to go to The Cheesecake Factory because its a favorite of ours and we had a gift card, but they don't take reservations and had a 2 hour wait when we called before we left. So we went to Duke's Chowder House instead which has a great view of the Sound and fabulous food. We both had to work on Saturday and had a cozy night in because Sunday was our fun day... we went skiing! This was Hubby's first time ever and my first time on skis after about 10 years. I took lessons in elementary school and was in ski club in middle school, but haven't skiied since my junior year of high school. We went to one of the ski resorts nearby that had a rental, lift, and lesson package. I got right back into it and Hubby did awesome for his first time. The lesson was helpful to teach him the basics better than I could, although we did do a few things to get him started beforehand which made the lesson really easy for him. Afterwards we did the easiest run about 5 or 6 times. We loved it, and will most likely be going back this Sunday on our day off! :)
Sweater: Target / Skirt: Corilynn / Heels: Macy's / Earrings: American Eagle


This is what I wore for our Valentine's Day date. I recently purchased this skirt from Corilynn when they were having a big sale. I've seen lots of bloggers that I love wearing her skirts and have always wanted one. The regular price for her skirts is a little more than I'm willing to pay so I was super excited when I found this one for half price. It fits perfectly too. I'm so excited to pair it with lots of other items in my closet and wear it again!

Chillin' It by Cole Swindell

This weekend it snowed a whole two inches! It started Saturday night when we went out to dinner with some friends, continued all night, and didn't melt away till Monday! And the best part was that Hubby and I both had Sunday off and could enjoy it, and give Bentley his first real experience of playing in the snow. So we bundled up, went for a snow covered walk on the trails in our town and loved every minute of it. I took a few pictures because it was so beautiful and we fully enjoyed some sweet family time playing outside and snuggling up on the couch. We are also fully inspired to go skiing next weekend, which will be Hubby's first time and my first time in quite a few years. :)
Sweater: Old Navy / Skinny jeans: American Eagle / Boots: Crocs / Scarf: Target / Earrings: Old Navy

Part of the reason that I haven't been posting as daily as I used to is because I wear pretty much the same thing to work everyday. In the warmer months, I wear a black polo with the golf course logo, dress pants, and black flats. In the colder months, I wear a black sweater, dress pants, and black boots. Occasionally I'll add color with scarves and accessories, like this outfit, which makes it a little more blog worthy :)
