      Not to start off another blog post of mine by talking about the weather... but it was literally in the single digits in Charlotte last night! And not much warmer during the day. The whole week here has been absolutely frigid. We had a "snow day" from school on Tuesday (though it was mostly a day off due to ice I think). As someone who moved to NC for college mainly to escape the frigid winters up North, I am more than ready for some milder weather to come back! 

     And speaking of single digit temperatures, over Christmas break when I was home last, it was definitely cold. The above pictures were taken in 14 degree weather! (I still don't know how I was brave enough to take off my coat and gloves at the beach to make it work for these photos!!) My friend Shara did these pictures for me, and I love her because a.) she is a great friend, b.) she is a great enough photographer so that you cannot tell how freezing cold it was here and c.) she went along with me to the beach on a 14 degree day in the first place! ;-) Good times.

     The black sweater that I am wearing in this outfit has become one of my favorite sweaters to wear this winter. It is from Vestique, which is a favorite Southern boutique of mine (they have two Charlotte locations). It is so comfy and slouchy, but not too casual to that it can't look nice or be worn with some nicer outfit pieces. Vestique is one of my favorite places to visit for really unique tops and sweaters! If you don't live near a Vestique store then you can always shop on their website!!
