Winter is Florida is approximately 76 degrees at all times. We’ve had a recent dip around 68 during the day but it’s so infrequent and with the sun it’s really too much to wear a big jacket (though you do see it, along with boots and sweaters!). I’ve worn this leopard coat once so far but couldn’t resist layering it just to show you how I’d wear it. I’m actually in Minneapolis right now for a thinking-I’m-in-a-dream-this-is-so-amazing trip, part of being in the Target Inner Circle. Today, we’re getting a tour of HQ, meeting some very cool execs to understand how they pick and market products and so much more. Then tomorrow, we’re doing a photo shoot! OK, die. I have no idea what it’s being used for bt who cares; I’m so, so grateful. Anywho, I digress. I brought along my more practical white marshmallow jacket just to ensure extra warmth. Too weird to layer it with this, right? If only I could carry it all!

I’ve been a bit obsessed with the polka dot craze. I mean who’s not right now? However, I’ve been making my purchases at affordable shops like Old Navy, Target and Gap, avoiding $260 J. Crew (incredible) cashmere sweaters and $150 jeans. Unlimited budget, sure, but otherwise it’s not going to happen.
Instead I had it in my head to DIY polka dotted jeans. I had a pair of Forever 21 oldies that I was ready to get rid of or cut-off so this was an ultra affordable, no-harm-done, DIY if it flopped. I intended to take fabric paint and dot it on the with the back of an eraser until I saw c.w. frosting use a Clorox bleach pen to achieve the same result. I was off…
Denim skinnies (just $10) or anything else.
Clorox bleach pen (2); I used about one and a half.
Lay denim flat, apply bleach dots with the thin side of the pen to one side. You can first use a pencil if you want to perfect the location of each dot.

Is “mountain style” a thing? Ha, doubtful but that’s the best title I had (been a bit under the weather). This is the last Vermont-related post, promise, however just had to share these amazing views, and the outfit I wore. When Adam and I took an overnight to Stowe we heard that at the top of the mountain — about a 10 minute drive — you could take a gondola further up for breathtaking views and to enjoy lunch at the Cliff House (or bring your own for a little picnic!). It really made our mini getaway so special, and one I’d definitely do again. Beautiful, right?

As much as I love my standard skinny jeans I’ve been looking for some new jeans options and noticed loads of celebs, style bloggers and awesome women going for big cuffs. Some, really big. A year ago I would have thought this looked ridiculous yet I’m now equally drawn to it because it’s such an awesome solution to hemming some jeans for my heels yet being able to roll them to wear with flats or to better show off said heels. Check out how some of these stylish women work the major roll.

A few tips: the boyfriend jean that shows wear with a few slight tears is definitely on trend, just don’t go so baggy that it makes you appear four sizes larger (not flattering, even on Katie Holmes). Also avoid cropped jeans which won’t give you enough to roll; your regular jeans are perfect. And, opt for a heel if you can swing it because it gives you great length and it’s also an awesome way to give your heels more play since we often only get to see the teeny-tiny part right by your toes. Solution!
