Warmer Weather Now Please by superchicmom featuring sleeveless tops

Dear Mother Nature, enough snow and sub zero wind chill temps, please? I am dreaming of warmer days and perhaps a vacation to somewhere warn in the next few months. Here is how I would love to dress in the tropics - preferably with a pina colada in my hand! Everything in this post ( except the clutch) is under $100!

Loving the snow and all the school delays or ready for Vacay?

Sequin Pants and Snow

Coat: Old Navy (last year) similar from J. Crew here // Pants: Wyatt from Nordstrom (last year) // Boots: Sorel Tivoli (kid's size 6 and half the price!  // Sweater: BCBG (old) but similar here // Lipstick: NARS heat wave
It was wonderful being with family this Christmas and I really enjoyed it. Having a little one brings so much of the magic back to season and brings out the kid in me as well! I hope you all had a very healthy and happy holiday.
In my spirit of wearing things I already own there are not many currently available items in this post. I wore these pants several times over the holidays and boy did I get my money's worth out of them. They could not have been more comfortable since they have an elastic waistband! I threw on black pointy heels when I came in from the snow.
I have been taking longer and longer breaks from blogging due to feeling super busy with work and the activities of the holidays. I don't make any real money from this blog and I really started it as a hobby to share my love of fashion and to see what the blogging world was like. I think over the year or two I have been blogging I have realized all the effort it takes to make a blog become lucrative - and it is work I have not yet been able to commit too! I barely check my Facebook once a day and the thought of setting up accounts on Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter to grow my audience just doesn't feel authentic to what I wanted to do at this point. I have a lot of respect for the work it takes to have a financially successful blog. I don't think I am ready to totally quit blogging but posts may be fewer and farther between. I hope you follow along when you can. I am always flattered that anyone is interested in my content here and want to Thank You!!
Happy New Year! And how lucky are we Breaking Bad and Walking Dead marathons on AMC this week ( after the kids go to sleep of course)!

Camel Oversize Blazer

Coat: Forever 21 // Jeans: Current/Elliott slouchy stiletto // Bag: vintage YSL from E-bay // Boots: rag & bone from Nordstrom Anniversary sale (sold out) // Sweater: J. Crew Factory // Sunglasses: Celine baby Audrey ( from E-bay)

The right camel coat thrown over anything (even distressed jeans) just elevates a look. It is simple and classic. I appreciate anything that can make dressing quicker and easier! Plus the coat in this picture is less than $40 and I think it looks way more expensive. See this coat in this post from November here. I sized up for an exaggerated oversize look and plenty of room in the shoulders for reaching back to the car seat behind me!
What are your thoughts on camel coats? What styles are you loving this winter?
Have a great week and, as always,  thanks for stopping by!
