I have sat down a few times and just cannot come up with what to say other than I am OBSSESED with this outfit and it’s been one of my favorites lately.

To be honest, there is a lot on my mind right now. I really try to be transparent with y’all so I thought I would share my feelings. I am the type of person who bottles up my feelings and that’s not healthy. I am generally an easy-going, happy person. Don’t get me wrong, I am still very happy and life is great.  However, lately I have been very very anxious! I am blessed to generally have a low stress lifestyle, but not knowing Jake’s Match results yet is causing me to be anxious. I feel like my life is on hold in a way. Match Day is in less than 50 days. This could realistically mean an out-of-state move in the months to follow before he starts residency in July. I am a control freak and not knowing is hard for me. This anxiety is causing my acid reflux (GERD, as Jake insists I refer to it) to flare up and I haven’t been sleeping as well. One day I 100% want to stay in Oklahoma City, but the next day I 100% want to move somewhere completely different and start a new adventure.

I know ultimately the Match results will be in God’s hands. I am trying to take a deep breath and take a step back and let his plan unfold. I am a huge believer that everything happens for a reason, so I cannot wait to see where we end up. For now, I am going to try to keep myself very busy and pray this time flies by.

About this outfit 

Faux fur details, tweed and A-line styles are a few of my favorite things. As I mentioned above, I am obsessed with this outfit. It is one of those outfits I didn’t even have to think about how to style. I knew exactly how I wanted to style it before even trying it on. I ordered a size small in the jacket and it fits PERFECTLY.

Tweed is something that I have seen around a lot lately and I am pretty excited about it. It is so classy and elegant, and it reminds me of Chanel. Over Christmas, my sister-in-law asked me if I wanted this dress and I didn’t hesitate to take it off of her hands. I knew the perfect jacket to style it with. This outfit inititally reminded me of Blair Waldorf. Gossip Girl is one of my favorite shows (you can see why here).

blair-waldorf-inspired-outfitAfter posting this look on Instagram, another blogger said she thought it was more Cher Horowitz from Clueless and I completely agree with her. The glamorous fur details on the bottom of the jacket and the tweed fabric are exactly something she would have worn in the popular 90’s series. It is glam to the max, which is very Cher.

This jacket is perfect to bring into spring or to finish off winter. The faux fur detailing on the tweed jacket was the perfect touch to get the “glam” look I wanted. I am really into preppy outfits lately and can see myself wearing this to a date night or a brunch. I especially can see it for a brunch in New York.

What is your go-to look lately?

    The rooftop vibes make this feel extra Gossip Girl. I secretly hope you stay in OKC but are excited for you and Jake regardless!

    I know exactly what you mean with feeling as though your “life is on hold” when you don’t know where you’ll be living in a few months. BUT it always works out. 🙂 Just have to get through that waiting part…it’s always worth it in the end! I do hope you feel better soon!

    And this outfit is amazing! I need these booties! Also, wherever you shot these photos was the perfect backdrop. I love it!!

    So much love and prayers for you my sweet! I can’t wait to see the adventures you are about to go on (although I secretly hope it Oklahoma). You and Jake are going to have so much fun in the next few months so don’t stress! How fun will it be to let go and find the amazing things that are coming your way.

    So glad blogging has brought me you no matter what state you are in… OH and this outfit was made for you! Love it!

    Hello Courtney, I feel for you girl! You are in a waiting game situation not knowing where you will end up I totally get how you can be anxious. God will guide both of you, he will put new adventures and new people in your lives! I hope the time goes fast for you. How nice of your sister-in-law to give you this darling Tweed dress! The jacket tights and booties give it a really cute look. Here in Minnesota jeans and pants are really common especially in these cold temperatures right now! Wishing you and Jake a beautiful weekend hugs Terri💖
