That Girl With The Pom Pom's






She wore colorful girlie-girl clothes, Mary Jane's and lots of ribbons in her hair.  Her winter wardrobe was a mish-mash of loud printed jackets, furry hooded coats, tons of mittens and pom pom beanies in every color.  She was stylish before her time.  That girl was me, when we lived in New York,  until I was about 6.  When my family moved to Florida, my wardrobe became a cluster of flip flops and bikinis. Until today.

Now that I'm back in a winter wonderland in Atlanta as a grown up, I am loving the winter gear as much as that little girl did.  The trendy pom beanie being worn today, brings back happy days of playing in the snow and dressing up as a kid.  I know the pom pom mittens are a bit overboard at my age, but hey, the nostalgia from my childhood are well worth the stares.

Thanks so much for reading!

What I'm wearing: Beanie: Urban Outfitters // Mittens: Joe Fresh, TJ Maxx // Sweater: Express, TJ Maxx // Buffalo check shirt: Forever 21 // Jeans: Zara // Boots: Tory Burch, similar // Bag: Kate Spade
