I wore this to church yesterday morning after the temperature decided to drop 30 degrees in less than 12 hours. I walked out the door without my coat, immediately ran back into the house and grabbed the first one I spotted in our entry closet. Of course leopard, in my eyes, is always the print that outshines the rest, plus this is one of the warmest coats I own. I wasn't too sure about how well it would go with my scarf, but I ended up liking how the two patterns paired. Isn't it funny how we find new ways to coordinate accessories on a complete whim? Thank you, bipolar weather for this one. I thought I would show you guys a few shots with and without the jacket as my teeth chattered, hands went numb and hair flew in all sorts of directions.

Speaking of sucking it up despite the frigid temps, I have to give major props to every person who photographs all of us crazy bloggers. Friends, husbands, boyfriends, parents, siblings, children and any others that I missed, you guys are rock stars! Speaking from my own experience, the people behind the lens are gifts from God. Ross was just a cold as I was and never once complained yesterday. He never does. He isn't taking these pictures for himself. He is doing it for me and because he knows how much it means. Honestly, if it weren't for him and his unselfish willingness and support, I wouldn't have a blog. I know many style bloggers set up a tripod and shoot their own photos, but I don't think I would ever have the patience to learn the tricks of taking self portraits with a remote or timer. So, high fives to all of you ladies who do it. If you do have a photographer(s), be sure to let them know how much you appreciate their help. I know I tell Ross thank you at least 10 times every time.
I am linking up with Lauren at Fizz and Frosting to show you two ways I wore this buffalo plaid scarf. It really has become one of my favorites this winter. The post with denim can be found here.
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, ate way too much at a Super Bowl Party (I know I did) and are staying warm.
P.S. We got to see Gus this weekend. He is a rock star and has come so far in just a few short weeks. Ross got to hunt behind him and it was amazing to watch them work as a team. Ross was smiling from ear to ear the whole time we were out in the field. We found out that Gus is graduating a week early and he is coming home in 17 more days!! It can't come soon enough!
