We have a winterpocalypse going on here in the Midwest of the United States, you guys. The snow. The wind. The cold. Good thing I'm a nature lover in general or this would be one rough time for me right now. Although it's not particularly the most ideal weather (would love to be wearing the pretty, vintage 50's sundress I thrifted on Friday), I do appreciate it. I love to watch the snow seem to suspend itself in the air from my dorm window. I've loved having warm tea every night with lots of spoonfuls of sugar while I read for class. And call me crazy, but I don't mind walking across campus in this. Although by the end of the walk I usually can't feel my feet, I revel in the beauty that God has made this earth in each season, and winter is no less.

Now despite all this would I like to have school off the next two days when it's -35 degrees out? Ain't no amount of nature's beauty will I not wish for that. x

With much love, Lauren.

You look very warm and comfy, dear. And, like every wonderful present, you come wrapped with a beautiful bow on top :) Wow how gorgeous you are! Stay safe in the cold. It is hitting here in Indiana right now so it will be there soon.

This is going to sound so silly but I actually really like this look I know it may not be 'high fashion' or whatever but you look comfy and cozy and in whatever crazy temp Ohio is throwing at you at the mo I think that is the main thing. Oh and I would totally steal the idea for this outfit hum lets see I have bf jeans a stripy top and a purple parka looks like I'm all set lol.PS frostbite is never in fashion ;)

Super cute, Lauren!
Sounds cold! That coming from Montana, where it's currently crazily warm for this time of year at 30-40 deg! Insane how the weather has been!
