Owl Style

Okay, so I may have had a little too much fun shooting these photos. There was a slight overabundance of energy that day, mostly due to the heady combination of Christmas spirit and a few hours of freedom from sippy cup enslavement. Truth be told, I love those little people, but a couple hours to myself is just the ticket to feel rejuvenated enough to take on a whole mountain of poopy diapers.

After hearing back from a lot of you that you enjoy periodical outfit posts about how to wear a dress that's comfortable enough to chase toddlers, I wanted to share another comfortable, winter-friendly outfit that I wore recently.

One of a girls' best friends for winter wear is cotton. It's toasty (as dresses go) and it's far more breathable than a light, feathery blend that would be more summer-appropriate. Most of my go-to dresses for winter are entirely cotton or a blend that I can pair with a comfortable sweater and some nice, thick tights. And let's not forget a good, old fashioned pair of boots to keep a gal's feet warm. In Minnesota, those are non-negotiable for stepping in the snow.

Most of the items I'm wearing in the pictures above were purchased at a steep discount thanks to some pretty intense sales awhile back, but in case you're searching for a great place to spend that holiday gift card, I've included links too. Happy owl-ing!

  1. Sippy cup enslavement, I like that. I might have to use that some day. I usually stick with toddler wrangling but that has a nice ring to it. ;)

    1. Around here, it totally depends on the day. Some days it's wrangling... but on the hard ones, it's all about enslavement! Hehe!

  2. Absolutely adorable! I love this outfit and am thinking I must copy it ;)... I'm with Verna on the toddler wrangling, but enslavement? Genius!
