Camel & Cream

You guys, what happened?! Just when we thought spring was around the corner, it felt like a whopping 18 degrees this morning when I left for a meeting. I guess I can’t complain, though… The forecast says a high of 71 on Friday! Whattttt? I honestly thought I read it wrong when I first saw it… I can never keep up with the weather here.

I actually wore this outfit last year right around this time, and I found the photos as I was cleaning up one of my hard drives this past week. Somehow it never made it onto the blog, but I think it’s still relevant! After writing this blog for almost SEVEN years, it’s kind of funny to see how cyclical my outfits are. It’s always around this time that I start opting for lighter colors (like camel & cream) and usually when I start trying to wearing my destroyed denim again.

Not that you can ever trust the Chicago weather, but after this random 70 degree day this week, it looks like we might be in the clear with high 40’s and 50’s for the foreseeable future. Here’s to hoping! I love my Canada Goose, but I’d really love to put it away in my coat closet until next winter.

    I’m looking to get a similar Cuyana bag and wanted to know if you have the large or the mini monogram on your tote. Thanks!!

      Hey there! When I got my bag years ago, there was only one size offered. Unfortunately, I’m not sure which size it relates to now. Cuyana has great customer service, I’d shoot them an email with a link to this post or these photos attached and see what they say!
