Wowza. What day is it?!?! The one where my kids finally went back to school so I had time to sit down and catch up on the blog. Sorry I’ve been kinda MIA guys, but really not because I spent a ton of quality time unplugged with my family and that was fantastic.

Fantastic and also really cold! If you saw stories we went up to our neighbor’s cute cabin to ring in the new year where the snowbanks were taller than me and the degrees were in the single digits.

I was daaaaang thankful for these two jackets! The top one is the Phoebe Packable Puffer in the color ginger spice. I’m wearing a small here. “Packable” comes from its ability to fold up and fit in its own pocket, literally. despite being able to do that it’s water resistant and super insulated and kept me nice and toasty. It is considered a relaxed fit, which typically in Free People language means size down.. I opted to go with my normal size because I love layering! There was plenty of room to put the Phoebe Jacket on over my favorite Patagonia Zip-Up Fleece Jacket. Ya know, the one I have in every print and solid?! haha.

My skinnies are Madewell… yup, skinnies. As much as i love my Levi Wedgies and all my other straight jeans, I still love a good pair of skinnies. Does that make me old? Ya don’t have to answer that 😉 haha. These skinny jeans are also old.. so I don’t have a link to the distressed ones, only non-hole ones in the same fit and wash.

My shoes are Golden Goose. They’re real spendy, but the quality reflects that. They launch new unique styles often + sell out rather quickly..

Vans high tops are my second fave high tops, you know I’m madly in love with these ones, but here’s the black ones that look similar to these GG ones!! 🙂 They aren’t exact dupes, honestly GG doesn’t have a dupe I’ve found yet.

As always, I’m sporting my Loopy case (since 2014ish!). My code TARA10 works on one, and TARA15 works on multiple. This is their new sage color and I love it! Green is my fave.
