January Thaw

Over the weekend we experienced some of the warmest January weather the north east has had in quite some time - in many places it was even record breaking. In comparison to the below freezing temps we had the other week, mid-sixties and sunny felt downright blissful. Even the wind felt pleasant with the sunshine at my back, a stark contrast to the bitter and biting winds we've been contending with for months.

Such a weather event needed to be taken advantage of, so my sister and I packed up the car with four sets of outfits and shot until the sun set. Naturally when we finished we had to join everyone else and partake in an ice cream cone from Arethusa.

The cold and snow will be back soon, spring will feel just as distant, but it was nice to have a weekend getaway from winter without even having to hop on a plane.

  1. That top is so fun! I love the texture!
    I wish I could have taken advantage of the warmth for a ton of pictures but I had to go to Grandma's and Christian stayed home to catch up on his own stuff since we've been busy every weekend since before Christmas, haha.

  2. It's nice that you had a break in the weather - we're at -30 here today with the wind and it's really intense!

  3. You look great.. those jeans fit you so well and I love that top.

  4. That wrap top is so beautiful on you and I love it with the jeans - they are perfect together! it's nice you got to enjoy some warmer weather in the middle of winter! :) I do find taking outfit pics tricky when it's so cold but we are lucky it doesn't get too cold here! No snow ever! haha!

    Hope that your week is off to a good start :) The weekday wear linkup is up on my blog, I'd love you to join! :)

  5. See? That's the kind of weather I thought we'd be having here in AZ. But it's been chilly....LOL!!
    Lucky girl.

  6. Oh wow you're certainly quick ! Glad you made the best of your micro summer weather :) Lovely top.

  7. How nice you had some amazing warm weather! It really helps break up the long winter when you have a few days like that. Your top is beautiful!

  8. Bare ankles, no cot and an ice cream cone in January?? Sign me up! At the same time you were experiencing record breaking warmth, we moved into our usual January cold - the kind that makes it so you need to avoid going outside unless its absolutely necessary. It's warmed up a bit again now, but only enough that a slightly lighter coat is acceptable. I'm honestly looking forward to going to Chicago because it will be warmer there than here, which is saying something :P Enjoy every moment of this weather!

  9. Such a cute look girl!! I'm really loving that pretty bag!

  10. Love this wrap top so much! It will be perfect for spring. I heard that NYC had some beautiful weather this past weekend, what a lovely treat!

  11. What a gorgeous outfit! I am obsessed with this top! Need to grab this for my wardrobe asap!


  12. This weather has been so crazy. It's 70 degrees today in Atlanta and although we're usually warmer in the south, this is unheard of!

    This is the perfect outfit for that weird weather in January, love the bag!

  13. Wow to the warm weather! My family in Ohio says it's warmer there than it is in Cali! That's so fun that you and your sister can photograph each other and go out for long photoshoots- that's gotta be the best! I follow her on Instagram and love her style as well :)

  14. Well hey there, gorgeous! I'm loving this look so much. That top is beyond stunning. The details are to die for. I'm glad you enjoyed the warmer weather over the weekend. I, for one, stayed indoors to avoid it because I much prefer the cold haha. I want SNOW in Virginia much more than I want a muggy, hot day in mid-January!

  15. This outfit is so cute! I love that top and the bag is so cute!!

  16. New York also had some wild warmer weather and I made sure to enjoy it! Love the bag, so cute with your outfit! xoxo, Sarah

  17. This looks so pretty on you dear! Such a chic look for the season.
