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:

Dear hood scarf

Hood scarf: Pistil (via Imelda’s).  Coat: Tulle.  Sweater: Zara. Dress: Gap. Tights: HUE. Brogues: Franco Sarto. Doctor Bag: Etsy.

Dear hood scarf,

Remember when we first met? I saw you at Imelda’s and thought, “Oh snap! That’s hot sauce. I need that in my life.” Then I took you off of the shelf and saw that you cost one hundred dollars and thought, “Oh snap! NOPE.” and I walked away in anger. But. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I would tell everyone about you: “Dude, there’s this hood scarf at Imelda’s that I am in love with, it’s soooo soft and pretty.” and then finally my husband said, “BUY THE DAMN THING SO YOU WILL STOP TALKING ABOUT IT.” And so I saved and saved and finally you were mine. The end.

P.S. I thought black and white was appropriate for the third shot since I look like I’m about to go kneel in front of a crucifix. *softly sings Ave Marie*

P.P.S. I love this bag but I don’t love HOLDING it. It looks good on porches and fences though, don’t it?

Pretty in Plaid

Shirt: American Eagle

Jeans: Levi’s

Shoes: Frye

Skirt: Fossil

Socks: HUE*

Shoes: Converse

Jump, jump. I like jumping pictures because I can be faux arty and my face is usually absent from the shot. Win-win.

These are my outfits from last weekend. The shirt is so soft and cozy that I decided to wear it both days. I usually don’t wear heels on the weekends since I’m running after my kids, but these Frye’s have surprised me by how comfortable they’ve gotten over time, especially considering how painful they were to walk in when I first purchased them. I wanted to feel girlish and relaxed on Sunday, so I wore my favorite chucks with my one of my favorite skirts. I felt something was missing from the outfit, though.

I need a brown belt.

*These Hue socks RULE, they’re so soft and are the perfect color.
