Coat: Anthropologie (similar here)  // Shoes: Nike // Leggings: American Apparel // Scarf: Borrowed from my roommate, Melissa (but this one is identical)  // Bag: Hayden Harnett (c/o) // Beanie: Gap (identical hat twin here) // Bracelet: J.Crew // Tissue Turtleneck: J.Crew (25% off today only with code HELLOSTYLE!)




If you’re in the Midwest,  you’re likely under an absurd amount of snow as you’re reading this (and hopefully you got the day off so you don’t have to trek through it on your way to work.) However, I am glad this isn’t a repeat of the storm we had last year when it was so cold that people kept throwing pots of water into the air to watch them instantly turn into snow.

I’ve been wearing variations of this outfit on repeat lately, and last week was no exception (note: this was during a warm front of 35 degrees). Some of my favorite blogger gals and I grabbed lunch at Nomi (seriously though, those french fries. Holy hell.) and then I hit Michigan Avenue to do a couple errands.

Here’s the formula: favorite sporty tennis shoes + edgy leather leggings (to keep the shoes from looking too tomboyish) + one classic scarf, and top off with my I can fit my whole life in here, Mary Poppins-like bag from Hayden Harnett. I love it because I’m constantly on the go, and there is enough room in it for my computer, my giant camera, my makeup bag AND then some. And it’s gold, duh. It’s also going to come in very handy as the perfect weekender bag whenever we head up to the lake house.
