This may shock you, but winter whites in Chicago are not a very practical look for those with the Casper-like complexion I'm rocking these days. With envy, I leave this look to those with skin tones at least 75% less pasty than my sad, vitamin-d deprived self.

In positive news: baggy, tunic-style shirts are a VERY practical look, particularly post-holidays when I haven't exactly gotten around to that healthy eating spree I'm definitely embarking upon any day now.

So I'm 1 for 2, but this little lady is winning on all fronts.

Happy January, friends!
