Fun In Floral

I have a love-hate relationship going on with the snow we are getting. I love how beautiful it is outside and how we get to miss school, but boy is it hard to do anything outside with all this snow around! lol. It's pretty interesting too this year with when the snow is hitting us. All my snow days so far this year seem to occur on "A" days. Our school has this schedule where we have "A" and "B" days that rotate back and forth. When we miss a day of school, we just skip over that day and we "make it up" at the end of the year. Because of the snow days, we have missed ~4-5 A days .. hehe A days are my easy days since I only have calculus to deal with. On B days, I have 3 major classes. Because of all the snow days on my "easy" days, I feel like I am stuck in an endless cycle of B days.
Okay, enough of my rambles! For my outfit today, I chose to style another piece I had gotten in my Dresslily haul. 


DressLily Floral Jacket Review

DressLily Floral Jacket Review

This jacket is quite unique in my opinion. The material is very different and though it may look like a thicker type jacket, it's made of a more lighter material. In fact, it's actually quite lightweight. That doesn't mean it's bad though because the jacket is quite comfortable and can be perfect for spring once the weather warms up. The jacket itself is a bit stretchy near the sleeves and bottom. It feels very comfortable on and I love the way it fits me! I was actually worried before that it wouldn't fit since it was "one size."

I am loving my hair in this picture!
The jacket has a zipper in the front and it's very easy to zip up and down. The back of the jacket is a bit sheer, but that just means you have to wear something underneath. I paired this lovely jacket with a black cami and a pair of dark colored jeans. I think a pair of shorts would look really cute with this outfit, but unfortunately it is still winter hehe!

Black Flats

Love You Ring

For shoes, I chose to wear a pair of black flats and for jewelry, I have on a silver ring from! I was lucky enough to have my sister help me take photos these past few weeks. Even though I have a remote for my camera now, it's still a lot easier when you have someone to take the photos for you. I don't have to worry about if I am standing in the correct position or if the lighting is good. My sister can check for me and that saves a lot of time!

snow in Connecticut 2014

To complete my post today, I wanted to share with a picture of what I saw when I woke up Thursday morning. (No school that day!) I awoke to a snow covered street and it was crazy how big the snowflakes were. Usually snowflakes don't show up in photos, so the fact that they are visible here shows how big the flakes were! We also got more snow yesterday, but it seems to be melting now! =)

Have you guys been receiving a lot of snow this winter?

  3. Hooray for sisters! Lol. When my sister was visiting a few weeks ago, I was thankful to have a photographer! My camera doesn't have a remote option so it is HARD to get any good outfit photos since I have to keep checking my position, the camera position, lighting, etc.

    That jacket looks absolutely perfect for spring - now the weather just needs to get the memo! Lol.

  13. I feel that same way about the snow. It's so pretty when it falls but walking in it is no fun. That is one pretty floral jacket. It looks great against your black outfit.

  21. On the brightside, you have a love-hate relationship with snow. I just hate it. Being in Canada, we don't get to miss school and it's so cold that it hurts. I want spring! And summer.

  26. Hi Mindy,

    Ugh I know how you feel, this snow never ends!! It FINALLY started to melt a little the day before yesterday, but then we got some more snow dumped on us last night. My fiance had to shovel the driveway at midnight when he got home from work because the stupid plows put a wall of snow up right against our driveway. Grrr. He was NOT happy. lol. Your outfit looks super cute! I have a couple floral tops and I love them. I'm super picky with floral prints, some I think are gorgeous (like the one you're wearing) and some look too "grandma-ish" (LOL) for me. haha. You have such a great shape!! You can really tell in the outfit you're wearing. I'm so jealous!

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.

  38. The snow is so beautiful, thats a lot of days to miss, does the local education board make concesions for snow days, would there be time to make it up at the end of the year or do you have to then come in over the holidays? Love your pretty floral jacket and your hair looks superb Mindy! Thanks for sharing your opinion on my last post.
