I originally thought I accidentally deleted half of the shots from this shoot (which were basically all the good ones) so I got really frustrated and lost motivation to post! But I took some more photos yesterday because the weather was ah-mazin' and realized the "lost" photos were still on memory card! *PHEW* Has anyone lost or thought they lost photos before? It's a terrible feeling!
ANYWAY, I've been wanting to try the fuzzy jacket trend for a little while now and when Sammydress contacted me to collaborate, I decided to get this cute faux lambs wool coat (which is more like a jacket, warmth-wise). I haven't been able to wear it because it's still pretty cold here, but I think it will be perfect for spring! For this look I decided to go with all black underneath to make the jacket pop. I really do feel like the president of the high school drama club in this, aha.

Spring is coming! We actually had crazy thunderstorms today and a tornado watch. Punxsutawney Phil's no shadow prediction sure was right. Here are some shots from Saturday when the temperature reached the low 60s and my best friend Alicia and I decided to go exploring and snap some photos. (She took all of these btw, thanks Leesh x) I usually like to avoid posting photos on here taken with my iPhone, but I really like how these turned out! I was also feeling my outfit this day too, so I figured I'd post it as my first outfit post after my relaunch :)

Surprise!!! After having this blog for 3 years, I finally found a name that reflects what I want this blog to represent: In Search of Sheila. I took a little break from my regular posting to give this space a makeover and a new focus. My blog will still focus on fashion, but it will also be a place for me to share lifestyle content and blogging tips. My overall goal is to encourage my readers (YOU!) to be in search of what inspires them to be a confident and driven woman.

Hey y'all! I'm premiering a new monthly series on here called "My Monthly Buys" so obviously the first installation is what I bought last January! I've been inspired by other bloggers that are chronicling their monthly purchases, which is actually a great idea to 1) show you all what I've bought and 2) help me keep track of my spending habits. One of my goals for 2016 is to spend less money on things I don't necessarily need, but more specifically on clothing. I have done pretty well this month, but there are some factors that helped me achieve this:
-My new job only pays me once a month, so I have been forced to better manage my money
-It's winter and my electric bill goes through the roof from January-March, so I need to save my pennies for that

I'm really excited for this post!! I am collaborating with two brands to review this filament shopping bag from Snupped and camel coat from Newchic. I feel like these two items go really well together, especially with my Topshop jeans that I'm obsessed with.
