not-so-spring break

coat: h&m, turtleneck: uniqlo, slouchy, high-waisted pants: h&m, shoes: gap (similar: here or here)

I'm back in Jersey for spring break, and it is freaking cold. One thing I can be thankful for is that it didn't snow! But that doesn't mean it wasn't cold enough for some. Thanks to the freezing temperatures, my ankles were cold while taking these pictures. During the day it's fine because they're exposed to the harsh outdoors for all of 2 minutes (the walk from the car door to the front door), but while taking these blog photos-- that's when the hard times hit. To the bloggers who manage to not only wear, but take spring outfit photos with bare legs and/or arms outdoors during such weather on the daily, you go, Glen Coco. 

I've been wearing these slip ons a lot over the past few weeks. Rolling out of bed, brushing my teeth, getting dressed in a white or black top, some shorts or boyfriend jeans, and the slip ons, then heading out the door has been my routine. Voila, all done. But alas, I needed a more winter friendly version of this look. So I swapped in some slouchy black pants, upgraded to a warm turtleneck, and threw on a maroon court. If you remember the Studio Nicholson aw13 collection which was super popular on blogs and pinterest alike, then you'll know exactly where I got my inspo for this outfit. If you don't, you can get a solid idea of it here


  1. hahaha "you go glen coco". I literally always think that whenever "you go" goes through my head. also, id live in those flats too. they're amazing.

  22. Hate when spring doesn't feel like spring- it's only 45 degrees or so here in KC right not, so I'm not too happy.
    Love the slip-ons! I'm so down for this trend.


  23. love your coat, idk how to called this color in english, rasberry? you look so chic! in my place there is only over 30 celcius temperature so i never have the chance to wear those amazing coats ;A;

  24. Nice coat, and such a cute & comfy look.
