Spring Is Taking It's Time

So returning to the lingering winter of Illinois has not agreed with me very well. On top of being sick, I miss the ability to throw on a t-shirt and shorts and show off my pedicure. After falling into a quick slump of sweatpants and mismatched sweatshirts with the sole intention to stay warm, I thought I would go through some of my favorite winter looks from the Sartorialist for inspiration. That and downing Halls and honey drenched teas in an attempt to get my coughed-raw voice back. 

But first, I want to share something that certainly brightened my day and is probably one of the coolest things I've heard in awhile. Whether you're a fan of Foo Fighters or Guns N' Roses, both or neither, I think you'll really enjoy this mash up. For those of you who aren't familiar with "mash ups", a dj takes two different songs from different bands (often polar opposites) and mash them together to create a new song. the song is kind of long but it's really worth listening to the entire thing, the video is unnecessary to watch (so you can go about your work while simply listening) but helpful if you aren't too familiar with the two songs and want to see what part is which band. This is my favorite one to date, so enjoy:

And now on to the fashion!

The Sartorialist is known for his sharp eye on the streets of New York and at various fashion weeks. (If you don't already you should make thesartorialist.blogspot.com a daily read) These photos I've saved over the last few months showcase impeccable tailoring, clean black pieces, tight pants, big jackets, and even bigger scarfs. So until that warm weather rolls around take some cues from these well dressed men and women to keep your days fashionable and warm!
