Bundled up!

Beanie and sweater: Target. Blazer: Vintage. Skirt: Fossil. Tights: HUE. Shoes: Bass.

Plaid, argyles, elbow patches and tweed: these are a few of my favorite things. I wore this a couple of days ago to work. I doubled up on the skirts and the tights and was pretty warm and cozy but am never wearing these shoes in the rain again as my feet were soaked! Boo.

I got this blazer from Lady Luck Vintage, a shop I loved to frequent until it closed several years ago. They had the best coats EVER. This one in particular is a little small but I love it so much I don’t care. I bought another one from there, ankle length and green with little shoulder puffs – that one is a work in progress, and by “work” I mean that a tailor is going to do all of it and I will pay her.

Anyway, for some reason I think that a pipe would really complete this outfit. Maybe it’s the tweed? Not a corncob pipe, though. And a hoodie! I adore hoodies under blazers.

Here’s what I wore yesterday:

Coat: Tulle. Cardigan and Dress: Fossil. Tights: HUE. Socks: Sock Dreams. Boots: Frye. Hat: Goorin. Gloves: UP Bookstore. Scarf: Andy’s.

This dress is so soft and comfortable. I love wearing it under layers and all by it’s lonesome in the summer months, it has the cutest little square neckline and cap sleeves.

I’ve been wanting to wear my red beanie lately but it’s disappeared, much like these gloves did for several months (they were in my underwear drawer, duh). Who knows where it could be hiding? Things go missing in this house and it’s not like we’re super messy or anything, but between two forgetful adults, two hoarding toddlers and a cat it truly could be anywhere. Alas, I am too lazy to look so I must purchase more.

Tomorrow is Friday! Yay!

P.S. I looooove this cover:

Don’t you love it when the socks you blindly grab for in the early hours of the morning perfectly match your outfit? Score!

I love my crown badge; my boss saw it and asked me if my nickname had been Queen or Princess growing up. Ha! I was more of a “Mouse”, quiet and shy and always somewhere reading a book instead of socializing. I was fascinated (and still am, quite frankly) by people who oozed confidence and said whatever came to mind. I always thought that when I turned thirty I would be like that. I’m not quite there yet.

This is the kind of outfit that I wore non stop in high school. Sweaters/sweater vests, chinos/cords, my dad’s argyle socks and oxfords. This particular outfit was based off of the fact that I had a chiropractic appointment that day and I needed to wear pants seeing as my Doctor would be lifting my legs up repeatedly. I also wanted to wear my saddle shoes. And voila. MAGIC.
