After the Blizzard

In all honesty, I was severely lacking inspiration for Looks by Lau before the blizzard. I tend to overthink my ideas, which often leads to a packed computer trash can of never-to-be-seen shots. Upon waking up to the aftermath of Winter Storm Juno, however, I couldn't help but feel like a giddy middle school kid again. There is something about a fresh blanket of snow that instantly lifts my excitement, even as a twenty-year-old who now understands its hindrance to commuting. As a result, I am now sharing with you one of the most spontaneous posts I've created to date, and I couldn't be happier with it.

Dressing for the Northeast's snowy weather involves two important things: comfort and practicality. As a blogger, I welcome the challenge of throwing style into the mix as well. Accessories are the key to taking on the winter, so today I'm relying on a sturdy leather backpack, plush-lined gloves, and quilted boots (borrowed from my momma). Each piece ensures a stress-free commute through the snow in style. Let's worry less and enjoy more, shall we?

    1. Thank you!! :) FIT has a great business program, and I think just being in the city alone has opened up amazing opportunities that I wouldn't find elsewhere. Please feel free to shoot me an email so I can give you more specific advice!
