Now that's a word that isn't used very often to describe the weather here! But, blustery it was this past weekend, and it made shooting outfit photos nearly unbearable due to the already-cold temperature and clouds obscuring what felt like all of the sun's warmth. I could barely smile! Can you tell I'm over winter? I mean, I can't complain much because it had been so mild up until now...but since we are nearing the end of February, I'm ready for spring full-time! (FYI: Daylight saving time starts in less than three weeks! Not that I'm counting down or anything...)

Despite the chill, I took my new pair of jeans out for a spin! I ordered these at the beginning of January, but they were backordered and didn't arrive until the end of January. I kind of sat on them for a couple of weeks, not sure if they were exactly what I was hoping they would be (they seem lighter in person than they appear in the stock photos). But, I actually like how they photographed, so I think they are keepers! I love the fit; holy cow, their new "Magic Pockets" really suck you in! The hem is fun, too. :)

For their maiden voyage, I wore the jeans with my voluminous cashmere sweater and a striped tee layered underneath for extra coverage and warmth and because it looks fun. Goodness, I love wearing black, and especially black cashmere...but as a mom to two partially-white cats, IT'S THE WORST! Haha. I can never get it to be completely free of cat hair. I added my velvet boots to mimic the texture of the sweater. I debated wearing my black ballet flats with this look, but the weather won this round.
