Happy Tuesday, everyone!! Not only do I have a new outfit post (with my favorite pom pom hat!) for you all, but I also need to ask you a favor. Since I finally updated my site, I decided I should put together my first Reader Survey, too! Eeeep! As this little blog grows, it becomes more and more important for the content/photography/design/etc to grow with it… and your opinions are incredibly valuable to me. You guys are the reason Lake Shore Lady is even a thing, so I think I’m overdue for a check-in, right?!
You are more than welcome to remain anonymous when you fill out the survey, but you can also put your name in at the end to be entered in a GIVEAWAY for a Nordstrom Gift Card! I almost went with Starbucks, but I figured both men AND women could have some fun at Nordies ?
Fill out the survey HERE! Thank you thank you thank you in advance!!!
I’ve had a lot of people ask where they can get this pom pom hat on Instagram, and I always get SO SAD when I have to say that I don’t have a direct link! Ali’s sister works in China as a teacher, so she had a bunch of them made before Christmas. I didn’t even know I wanted a pom pom hat, and now it’s probably my favorite part of my winter wardrobe.
I also highly recommend these boots. They’re made by Uggs (surprising, right?!) which means they are super practical. Not only are they well made and water resistant, but they also have shearling and a memory foam-cushioned footbed in there to keep you warm and comfy! Plus, the 2+ inch heel and nice suede make them feel prettier than your average winter boot… the answer to my Chicago prayers!
I’m assuming some of you are huge fans of navy like me, so you’ll also love my quilted coat and overnight bag. While this might not be my first winter jacket, this is definitely my first adult overnight bag. Haha I’m serious! My old LeSportsac used to be my only option… so this Cuyana beauty was long overdue. I can’t wait to bring it with me to Connecticut this weekend! Woo!!
