A while back I got to spend an afternoon with my friend Anda. Remember her Dream Job interview? Well, we finally met in person and it was such a nice afternoon in Madison. We had a lunch, went for a walk, and then enjoyed some afternoon tea. She was sweet enough to take a few photos that I wanted to share with you. Anda even took some of the photos on film…how awesome is that?
I love this one she took in front of this blue door!
I also have to tell you about these awesome gloves I’ve been wearing this winter. They’re from etre, a design agency turned shop inspired by the understated but characterful traditions of British workwear. Their products look to the past and each piece is beautifully crafted in the British Isles, using responsibly sourced British materials. I just love their aesthetic (check out their awesome lookbook!).
The missing thumb and index fingertips allow the freedom to text, Instagram, and tweet, all while staying warm! It’s been a few years since I’ve been to Great Britain, but I love thinking about that wonderful place (and those accents!) while I wear my gloves.
If you live somewhere cold like me, you can never have too many gloves. Plus, they’re now on sale! I love the stripes. Check out etre’s shop if you’d like!
Thanks so much to etre for the gloves and Anda Marie for these photos!
Spring may be around the corner, but we just had another snowstorm here! Hope you’re staying warm. :)

Happy Monday! How was your Thanksgiving? We had a wonderful long weekend away in the country with Nick’s family. Now to get back into a routine and productivity mode for the holidays quickly approaching!
Today I’m sharing a gift guide for the stylish friend in your life. There’s so many possibilities out there but here are a few of my picks.
Also, I’m over on Inspiration Cooperative today participating in Theresa’s awesome Mini-View interview series. She asked some great questions, check it out here!

Winter is fast approaching and I’m gearing up. Or rather, I’m just trying to accept it and stay warm. :) I tend to complain about winter while wishing I could be somewhere warmer but this year I’ve decided to stop. I’ve changed my mindset. I’m excited for winter. It’s time to start appreciating what I have…and enjoy it to the fullest…the magical first snow fall, the cozy nights in, thick sweaters, and extra hot tea. It really is a wonderful time to appreciate the simple things and I’ve already got the holiday spirit. (Proof: here on Pinterest)
When it’s cold and snowy, I hibernate. I actually look forward to it. Here are a few items on my winter wish list for getting cozy at home…
What are you most looking forward to about winter?

I’m feelin’ foxy. Maybe it’s the new blonde hair? ;)
I recently spotted a little fox trend and I’m kind of digging it!
What do you think?

With some encouragement from friends, I wore my first maxi dress! I’ve always wanted to wear a long dress but never felt like I could pull it off because I’m petite. But I think paired with the right shoes (wedges!), it totally works. This dress was a great find at our local thrift store and I think this look is perfect for a casual chic lunch date.
I also love it when I randomly find a cute pair of shoes at Target for $10. Now that’s a happy ending.
Have you worn maxi dresses this summer?
Get the look:
Similar items: turquoise maxi dress, fun necklace, floral clutch, yellow wedges (or I love this brown leather pair!).
