No one notices the contrast of white on white

It's cold out there gals. Really cold. And for the first week since I started taking outfit photos for the week over the weekend, I really didn't feel like getting dressed.
I was seriously contemplating spending the rest of the week under layers of fleece and not stepping foot outside of the house. It's a slow week at work, would they really miss me??
Right now my survival is resting on a pair of fleece lounge pants I got at Old Navy for $8.
The moment I walk through the door after work I make a beeline for the pants and slip into cozy fleecy warmness.

I think I'm doing really well with the No Repeats Challenge, and I did stratigically wear this leopard sweater right before the challenge started so I could wear it again during. And I'll probably put it on again soon after the challenge is finished. I really love this sweater!

I'm also happy I didn't pack my white jeans away with my summer stuff. I can totally wear white in the winter, and stuffed into boots, I don't have to worry about the hemlines getting all muddy and ruined with the snowy mess outside.

Small announcement: my kittycat @ snet.net email address will be no more as of the first of the year. I'm almost a little sad to lose it, it was my first ever email address and I've had it for 14 years. Hence the reason it is something as immature as kittycat.
So I now have a new email just for the blog, which is ChicLyddie {at} gmail{.}com and is maybe just as silly as kittycat, but both lyddiegal@gmail.com and chiconthecheap@gmail.com were taken, so I combined the two.
Be sure and direct all your future questions, comments, love letters, and belated Christmas presents to ChicLyddie {at} gmail{.}com

I love this outfit! Great pattern and fabulous white jeans. I am impressed you have been taking outfit photos in the snow - I only spent 5-6 days in New England and all I wanted to wear were turtlenecks, tights and warm pants!

Oh laziness! How it impacts us. ;) Why do you think I'm such a slow poster? Teheheheeee. I do like that sweater on you, as well! It's such a fun print and fits you so perfectly. :) Stay warm and cozy, Lyddie!~ <333

Wow, I"m not usually big on white jeans (or leopard, for that matter), but this throws it all into question! Super-cute winter look that really suits you.

White jeans in knee high snow drifts is pretty genius. I like how you styled it with your leopard print top.
Stay warm, lady.

I love the leopard print top with the white pants - and you're right, tucking the pants into boots is a great way to wear them through the winter!

I've barely gotten out of pajamas myself this week - fortunately I did take the week off from work so it's justified!

I'm glad you mustered up the energy to get dressed - I do love those white jeans against the snow. I purchased a white winter coat last year and it's tricky to keep clean. At least jeans you can toss in the washing machine! :-)

Kristin said...

I just love the color of those boots! And I've been living in my hubs' old baseball sweats at home!

Amber Blue Bird said...

love the sweater and that you wore white pants, I love wearing white in winter

à la Modest said...

That is a nice and warm-looking leopard sweater! What a cool necklace too. Yeah, I love my fleece pants during the winter. If nobody was around watching, I'd wear this all day in and out of the house.

About your Christmas no-no gifts comment: Candles. Totally. Actually I appreciate them more now (just a wee bit) that I have to keep my place smelling nice around guests. My parents used to drown us in incense. It wasn't very appetizing around meals.

you look great!

Marella said...

Amazing outfit! <3

Sally said...

I'd never think of white pants/jeans in winter, but this is so chic!

I also love the jacket layered over an animal print.

jamie-lee said...

oh you look so sweet - I usually think of white jeans as summerwear but glad that you have proved the contrary! x

dotty said...

the winter white is amazing!

gypsyroxylee said...

Great animal print sweater! Oh and I love the necklace!

The Backseat Stylers said...

I love, love, love this outfit. Animal print top, white jeans, red circle scarf...a rather unlikely combo, but it works amazingly!

Hope you're having a fabulous holidays!

You look great!:)

Fashion Therapist said...

I'm glad you didn't pack away the white jeans. With the exception of the snow you really can't tell what season it is.

Mochachocolata Rita said...

I've been looking for a good leopard print piece...but haven't found the right one. sobs....

Vikki said...

Hooray for leopard! I can definitely relate to diving right into comfy clothes when you have the chance. i work from home and sometimes stay in my jammies all day (a habit I'm trying to break).
