Chambray: Madewell | Cardigan: Gracie B Boutique | Skirt: Target | Tights: Target | Socks: Forever 21 | Shoes c/o Blowfish | Necklace: Meredith Jackson (won on Kendi Everyday)

The weather is way chilly right now (like 17 degrees chilly) which calls for comfy cozy cardigans, fleece lined tights and boots to keep me warm when I still feel like being a little dressy and wearing a skirt.  It’s crazy to think that last week we went to the beach in California and this week we’re staying inside because it’s so cold and snowy out.  I didn’t make any official New Year’s Resolution this year, because I know that I can never keep them, so let’s just say unofficially, I’d like to go to the gym more so I can lose 10 pounds (this is my resolution every year), finish cleaning out my closet, buy more investment pieces and less cheap items, be better about cleaning our house, rekindle our date nights, and help my little guy learn how to stand, walk, talk, and learn Chinese.

What is one of your New Years resolutions?

    That sweater and necklace are so awesome! I don’t really have a resolution. I want to be healthier and lose weight always, but it never happens, hee hee!

    Love the cardigan and those wedges and the peek of your cute socks!! :) I agree about the weather. I was just in Florida last week and I came back to lots of snow! Big weather shift, haha.

    I love your style so much! That tribal cardigan is perfect on you. I enjoyed reading your resolutions. Good luck with them! I have a little brother and he can be pretty reluctant to learn Chinese (: Glad to have found your blog!

    Love your cardigan! Looks so cute and cozy, perfect for this chilly weather! I like your resolution to buy more investment pieces and less cheap ones, I need to start doing that too.
    One of my resolutions is to get more organized!

    I’ve got to find those tights! I prefer wearing dresses, even in the winter and I’m always in need of heavy duty tights. My goal has always been to lose 10 pounds but I’m just trying to be realistic.

    That’s an adorable sweater! This year I’m hoping to to slow down more and enjoy the mini-moments in life…you know, focusing more on family and less on work (shhh….don’t tell my boss!)

    I love that you’re going to teach him Chinese. Fully support that!

    Very cool and comfy cardigan/sweater! And yay for teaching your lil guy Chinese! We spoke to our then baby in Mandarin all the time, but then he started speaking English b/c of daycare and we felt we should encourage that, so we stopped with the Mandarin. Now at 2 yo, he doesn’t seem to have any interest :(. So, moral of the story is keep at it with the Chinese!
