​ Vest is from h&m (here), leggings are here, similar tee is here or here shoes are here, glove/mittens are from nordstrom, similar here.

 Don’t let the green grass fool you – it is FREEZING here (30 degrees). Today is unofficial St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago, so here is my little hint of green. I had my 5 mile run this morning for the half marathon training, so I was numb by the time I got back! This is the perfect little cozy number to run errands in to keep you warm in windy weather. Vests were my go to this winter since I love that you can still wear lightweight clothes underneath them.
If you don’t have a pair of these leggings you need to buy them now. They don’t fade after multiple washes, they aren’t see thru, and they are SO comfortable! I have 2 pairs and am definitely going to get a few more before next fall! These booties also sold out VERY fast, but Cecilia New York did a restock/pre-order for them and i’m so glad I was able to snag a pair.
Next weekend is supposed to warm up, so hopefully that follows through and I can post some spring options on here. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

This sweater is SO cute and on sale for under $40!
This flannel is SO comfortable and on sale for under $20!! I almost want to get it in every single color!
 I love this camo utility jacket, it can be worn so many different ways with so many different styles.
I also like this bracelet; it’s on sale for under $40 and when you sign up you get 10% off your first purchase!
They have so many cute necklaces like this one that I purchased recently, and many more!

​ Scarf is from Nordstrom (dupe here), jacket is from shophopes but there is a similar one here, similar booties are here, tank is here, jeans are here, sunglasses are here.

 What a fun weekend this has been, although the weather hasn’t been the greatest! I had my long run for this weeks training of the half marathon (4 miles), which may not seem long to some but after running 3 miles three days so far this week it wore me out. Yesterday after that, we went to an early St. Patricks Day parade and celebration in Forest Park. Our uber driver got lost and took us 20 minutes out of the way from where we were supposed to go lol!!!! We eventually got there and it was a ton of fun. I have given up fast food for lent (other than Chipotle every Sunday) so it was hard to not want some fast food on our way home! After the parade we went over to my sisters house to go hang out with them and she taught me how to play the entertainer on the piano. I always remember her and my dad playing piano as I was growing up so it was fun to learn it myself.
Today is just a relaxing day. The golf course we live on has opened up so that means warmer weather is coming – and hopefully sun too so that I can get more use out of these new sunglasses I just bought! As for now, I will get as much use out of my blanket scarves before I have to put them away for the summer.

​Color block sweater is from shophopes awhile back, but some similar styles are here and here, jeans are here, combat boots are from discovery but polyvore has some cute ones.

I’m trying to hold my hair back in all of these pictures because it was blowing around like crazy. The last picture I had my boyfriend snap of me outside of Jimmy Johns when we went to go get a baguette for our soup dinners. Imagine him holding two baguettes and a bag of BBQ chips while taking this picture lol!
Happy hump day! We made it through half the week and boy has it been a long one so far. I have started training for a half marathon so I ran 3 miles on Monday, 3 miles yesterday (got caught in the middle of a thunderstorm), and am going to be running 3 miles today so boy am I sore! I feel like it has been windy here every single day – but I guess that’s why they call Chicago the windy city! ; )
It is now officially March which means it will be warming up soon! February had been such a long short month. To help make it go by, I decided to post a heart on the door every day for a reason why I love my boyfriend. At the end of the month he had 28 reasons why I love him. Boy did he look forward to coming home every day to read them!! Sometimes he even accused me that I didn’t put one up since he couldn’t find which one was new lol:). I got the idea from one of my co-workers who was going to do it for her children. Such a cute idea! Here’s what it looks like now at the end of the month…

Now how long should I leave these up for????? 🙂
Maybe another week or two?
Hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week!!

​ Scarf is here (on sale for under $20!), similar top is here, jeans are here, similar shoes are here, purse is here.

Boy was yesterday chilly! After it being in the 70’s all week in Chicago it dropped down to 20 degrees yesterday and we had snow flurries! Scarves are my go to if I don’t want to wear a jacket which is definitely what I feel towards the end of winter. Asos has the best scarves – i’ve gotten so many of mine from there. Thankfully we had a surprise party to go to so that we had plans indoors, and it was a ton of fun. Right now there are a lot of sales still going on that continued from presidents day. Some of my favorite ones are Nordstrom, Asos, and Dottie Couture. My boyfriend was a sweetheart and bought me four things from Dottie and i’m so excited to get them! Their model is gorgeous so she makes everything look so cute – their site is dangerous, but so worth it! I hope all of your weekends were fun-filled!
