#OOTD Gloomy Weather Edition


So, this year, Nate and I celebrated V-Day 2 ways - first with a cozy, late night dinner at home on Valentine's itself and then we tried a new local spot that weekend - The Improper Pig in downtown Fort Mill! This place is the PERFECT addition to our little growing downtown area!! It's quaint and cozy, and currently a hoppin' place, so if you want to get there without having an hour to an hour and a half wait, definitely get there early! That's what we did. 

On the Saturday after Valentine's, we headed that way around 4:30pm and by the time we walked in (maybe by 5pm at the latest), the place was already packed! We're traditionally bar people, so we kept the traditions going strong and luckily found 2 available seats at the teeny, tiny, cozy bar top. It was the perfect spot for us. 

We had the nachos with smoked chicken, edamame, and the smoked chicken wings (which oh my gah are to DIE FOR). We also tried a few of their signature cocktail beverages - me in particular that is - and went with first the Pomegranate Margarita and finished off the evening with a few of their Resolutions. The latter is basically a gin and tonic with champagne and rosemary - so delicious!!

It was a gloomy day - much like it is as I sit here and type this right now! Side note: we haven't seen the sun around here for about 4 weeks now! I mean where are we - Portland?!?! Anyhoo, I kept my outfit casual, functional, and cozy to mostly accommodate the weather conditions, but also to feel comfortable and uniquely myself. This outfit basically doubles as an-almost-any-occasion outfit, especially during those cooler and gloomier times of the year!

1 // Sweater, Necklace, Jeans

All 3 of these babies are from Loft! I absolutely LOVE LOFT! #loveloft They are one of the few places where I can find sizes that fit me REALLY well! When you’re petite on the top and regular on the bottom - it can get confusing! I love the flare arms of the sweater especially. Turns a simple sweater into a unique piece! All of these pieces were purchased in store a few seasons ago, but I’ve linked some similar options from Loft and Amazon below!
