Let it snow!

Coat: Urban Outfitters ($30 sale)
Sweater: Madewell (sale)
Button-up chiffon shirt: AA
Skirt: Vintage thrift ($7)
Bag: Vintage D&B thrifted ($10)
Tights: AA super opaque in "truffle"
Shoes: Vintage thrift ($5)
Bracelets: vintage
It's snowing! I absolutely love unexpected snowstorms, the whole world gets quiet and our ugly winter-ravaged city is blanketed in soft white. I'm already having such a better day compared to yesterday, I'm determined to finish up my christmas shopping and get all our Christmas cookies baked today!

This has been one of my favorite outfits lately, it's comfy, easy, and warm. Perfect for winter. I picked up this sweater at Madewell along with the one from the other day. As much as I love finding an awesome thrifted sweater, nothing beats a new, unworn, cozy sweater! I paired it with an army collared shirt and a skirt to match. I found this vintage wool skirt on a thrifting trip the other day, I was supposed to be searching for christmas gifts, buuut I found some stuff for myself as well! I added my go-to vintage purse and vintage loafers and a simple necklace from Noble Town Vintage, and done!
I haven't forgotten about the giveaway, I'll post the winner of the Bearcat vintage certificate later today! I'm off to search for gifts for people, wish me luck!

I LOVE this look! The colour combination is great! I bought some tights that I thought were that colour, turned out they were like bright pink/purple :( I need some like your colour hah!

It's just started snowing here too, I just love it! I don't understand why people moan about the snow?! Cookies sound so nice right about now :)

I must say, I can not get over those bangs. The haircut seriously is amazing and if you ask me, I think it makes every outfit that much more chic--er (I realize that this may not be a word.)

Love the outfit, looks comfy and co-ordinated, but not in a put-together way, iykwim

I love the change in proportions that wearing an untucked sweater gives to a pleated skirt like this. a little bit old-timey and a little bit modern.

So pretty! You make me wish it snowed here in San Francisco too. The colors of your outfit blend so well with the quiet mood of a snow day.
XOXO

I just snagged a coat at UO for 30 bucks as well. I didn't see THAT one though, because if I had...um, I would've bought that one instead. Yeah. I need more coats with hoods. Since I live in Portland and all. Anyway, your outfit is divine! As usual!

Heather Lynn said...

Marina said...

So lovely! The colour of the tights go so well with the rest of the outfit.

It doesn't snow much at all where I live, but I had the good fortune of spending the holidays in New England last year and it was so pretty - a Winter Wonderland!

Your tights add the perfect punch of color to your neutral based outfit. Love!

D'Andra said...

Loving this outfit! You look so cute!

Danielle said...

I found a purse like that the other day! Except it was a knockoff... But I loved the style so I didn't care!
