Well this was a doozy of a weekend! All week, the local news hyped up this crazy ice storm that was supposed to hit us. They claimed it would be worse than this epic storm that came through 10 years ago. Needless to say, it instilled fear in just about everyone. Schools and businesses started to make the call on Thursday evening to close on Friday. I get it. It's better to be safe than sorry. I also get that weather is so unpredictable. While certain parts of the city got it worse than others, our suburb really didn't get hit with much. I think we are too far north. We didn't treat our sidewalks or driveways, and the surfaces were completely walkable. I'm not sure if I'm relieved or annoyed that it was way overhyped.
I was scheduled to take the beagle out to the veterinary referral clinic Friday morning at 8am. She needs an ultrasound (long story). It's hard to get an appointment there, and it's an hour drive each way. I had set up my Friday so that it would work my schedule, but in light of the storm, I had to push it off until a random time this Wednesday. Boo. Oh well, like I said, better safe than sorry!
We are also in the process of selling my Saturn Vue and finding renters for our rental property. Adulting is HARD. Having the city completely shut down complicated our ability to meet up with the people interested in seeing the house and the car. Let's just say that we had high hopes of having a productive weekend and it ended up being the opposite. Sometimes life forces you to slow down, and I welcome any opportunity I can take a nap! So, for that I am thankful!
Ok, now let's talk about this flannel cardigan! It's so clever! I love that it has the collar like a typical flannel button up, but it has a cascaded, flyaway front like an open cardigan. Because of its collar, I had the idea to wear my favorite military vest over it and cinch the silhouette with a leather belt. I intended to wear this over a dress, but I decided to go with some winter white skinnies for a little more warmth. I am obsessed with how well this necklace finished off the look! Obsessed!!
The last time I wore this cardigan was for a holiday party. Plaid and stripes go so well together, so that was a natural pairing. These leggings are actually a dark green color, though they look black in the photo.

I thought I would re-post that selfie so you could see both looks next to each other. It will be so cute with a tank, ripped shorts, and some Chucks in the warmer months! Now if someone could tell the ice to go away so spring could get a head start, that would be great!!
