Okay, so I spoke waaaay too soon with the whole “it’s been a mild winter thing.”  Last weekend we were hit with the Jonas blizzard and as you can see by the huge piles of snow it was pretty intense!  I was basically trapped inside all last weekend, but it was so incredibly relaxing doing nothing for three days straight. Although it’s super cold, I’m obsessed with the way that the camel and brown in my outfit pop against the white snow and my white pants.  There’s something really striking about neutral colors against a blank canvas.  I hope you guys have a happy Friday and a great weekend!

Hi everyone!  Charming Charlie’s has been one of my latest obsessions.  That’s where I got this cute hot pink bag a few weeks ago.  This top is from forever ago, but it’s been a staple in my wardrobe because it’s perfect for virtually any season.  Also, I’m in love with this House of Harlow necklace that came in my Rock’s Box this month.  Just a heads up – my readers can try out this company for FREE using the code: (theinspirationclosetxoxo)!

BTW I’ve been pinning up a storm on Pinterest lately!  I’m working on some really fun photo shoot ideas for the future.  If you want to see where some of my inspiration comes from follow my Pinterest: (@nicolespataro)!  I’d love to follow you guys back as well so we can be pin friends! (:

Hi everyone!  I can’t believe there is still snow on the ground.  Ugh.  Is anyone else as over it as I am??  I’ve already started shopping for spring and I couldn’t be more excited.  There’s just something about warm weather and light clothes that makes happy. (:  Particularly last week, I had a terrible time trying to shoot an outfit outside because it snowed and rained the majority of the week. ):  I have so many ideas for photography and outfits for spring and I can’t wait to share them with you all!

Hi everyone!  This sweater is from last year from the Bethany Mota collection at Aeropastle.  It’s still one of my favorites.  I have some similar ones linked above for you that I think are just as cute.  In particular, I love that one with the hearts on the elbow patches.  Also, you have to check out the Glossy Balms from Loreal!  They have such rich color for a gloss.  I have a few of them and they are a new recent favorite of mine.  I’m wearing the one in “My Baby Doll”.  By the way, this is my first pair of Keds and I really like how comfortable they are!  I currently have my eye on these Kate Spade New York Keds (and these) (and these).  How beautiful are they??  Time to start saving! (Hah)

Hi everyone!  I don’t wear a ton of black, so this look was a nice change for me.  What I love about these leather pants is that they can be worn to make so many different outfit combinations.  You can dress them up or down, and they can make any look more fashion forward.  I found them at H&M.  If you are looking for leather bottoms, I HIGHLY recommend jeggings!  They have the comfort of leggings, but the look of pants.

Thanks for visiting my blog! (:
