It was cold outside (-7) and I may have started running mid-snap! Beckett is such a trooper for being so nice and willing to take these! I keep waiting to hear him complain, but he even asks me sometimes if I want pictures that day! 😍 husband points.  

Blouse: 14th & Union from Nordstrom Rack || Leggings: Hue || Necklace: original sold out, but here’s a similar by Simply Vera Wang || Earrings: sold out, but similar by Simply Vera Wang || Sunnies: Michael Kors || Bag: Kate Spade (merlot color though) || Shoes: old, similar by Hush Puppies 

Whenever I find statement peices that I love I like to keep the rest of the outfit simple because I like the contrast. This outfit is an example of that simplicity because I wanted to show off this great necklace and earrings set my Grandpa Neil & Grandma Sonija gave me for Christmas this year. And I have to say, Grandma (+ Grandpa) you have great taste! I think every time I see Grandma Sonija I wonder where she got her shoes! 

 Besides my outfit, another thing I want to show you with a little contrast is the drawing below! I’ve been waiting to share this until I gave it to the happy couple, but I did this for my sister-in- law and her husband as a (late) wedding gift! But I may have given it to them and then taken it away.  

I originally planned to do an oil painting, but my Dr told me the fumes are dangerous for Baby Witzke so I used my time to do this drawing instead. I started on New Year’s Day and I think it took me just under 40 hours to complete. I have to admit though, as happy as I am to be done, I’m sad it’s all over. Now I need something else to work on! Suggestions?
