Winter Weekend StyleI wasn’t much of a sneakers girl as a kid. In fact, I never owned a pair of the super popular Converse and I don’t really remember buying my first pair of sneakers until I was in college. It’s not that I didn’t like them, I just thought they didn’t fit my style. I don’t think that any more (or my style has simply evolved, as it tends to do over the years).

Pink HM Cargo JacketAfter wearing boots all winter, I’m happy to now slip into something lighter. These sneakers are super comfortable and they were only 15 bucks (win win!). They have a few other patterns and I’m kind of tempted to go back and pick up another pair!

Leopard Slip On SneakersBurgundy Ribbed Beanie HandmadeHere’s the beanie I knit last month. Although we’ve had some days with highs above 50, the temperature dipped back down to the 30s yesterday, so I’m still getting some use out of this hat. Also, I kind of can’t help matching my lipstick to this beanie every time I wear it. This burgundy lipstick from MAC is definitely a favorite from mine.

What did you do this weekend? After two straight weekends that were filled with social activities, it was nice to have this quiet weekend as a change of pace. A few friends and I had drinks on Saturday and then we did a bit of shopping. On Sunday my roommate and I ran out for a bit to take care of an errand, but then we scurried back inside quickly when we realized how chilly it was.

    LOVE the sneakers! I really want a pair of leopard print sneakers. Have been eyeing the pair from Steve Madden…But $15 sounds like a much better deal…where are they from? Anyway love that you knit your own hat! So cool.

      Thanks Heather! I saw the Steve Madden ones too, but these H&M sneaks were definitely a cheaper option :)

    Super cute sneakers! I love this trend but still can’t decide on a pair. That lip color is really pretty on you.

      Thank you Rowena! I wanted to try this trend but didn’t want to spend tons of money, so these H&M shoes were a good option.

    Those are so cute! I need to buy sneakers for spring! I spend most of my weekend taking care of my mom, she came down with the flu really bad, but she’s better now :)

    You did a great job with the beanie, it looks good enough to sell in stores! Also, I love the blush color of your new jacket. Too cute!

      Thank you Jenmarie- that’s such a sweet compliment about my beanie. Also, I’ve had this jacket for a few years now- it was $30 bucks at H&M and it’s one of my favorites! :)

    What cute sneakers! I really like how you styled them. I’ve definitely added some sneakers in fun prints to my wish list for Spring.

      Thank you Shenneth! I’m really loving how comfortable they are and I’m definitely tempted to buy another pair.

    I love your leopard print sneakers. I love that they are slip ons. Your jacket is also wonderful.
