Black and Blue

In this outfit:
Jacket: Urban Outfitters ($30 sale old, similar)
Top: American Apparel
Jeans: J.Crew "Pixie" ($10 sale, 2010)
Booties: ModCloth
Bracelet: Thrifted ($2)
Bag: Vintage Coach/ Thrifted ($10-ish)
Beanie: Brixton (Chris's)
Lipstick: Rimmel Kate Moss #12

Where I wore it: Holiday shopping, a coffee date, wine night with lady friends

I've been craving comfort lately, partially due to the disaster that is my closet, I've been falling back on easy outfits and this hat- which, let me tell you, provides a quick fix in the morning when I don't have time to do anything to my hair.

Swap the polka-dot wedges for some gold glitter ankle boots and you pretty much have the outfit I have to fight myself not to wear every. single. day. Honestly, if it were socially (and professionally) acceptable, I would just buy ten identical chambray shirts and five pairs of Uniqlo ultra stretch jeans in black and call it a damn day already.

Wowza, you look awesome. This is my go-to outfit right now as well, you can never fail in a good denim button down. I wish I had awesome shoes like that though to spice up my outfit.

Also...I haven't taken a toque off my head since winter came. It's the perfect solution for growing out bangs, which I'm doing! Plus it looks reallly cute, lets be honest!

You're a babe!!

I will never not adore your beautiful long hair. I swear, every time I see a photo of you I want to grow out my hair. AHHH

You are beautiful! I've been also craving comfort lately, so for me that means less heels. Haha

those are seriously some swanky boots, sort of reminiscent of mod-inspired wall paper. i totally dig, especially paired with very simple classic staples.

Looking lovely! You're wearing my daily uniform, save the fancy polka dot booties. Snow boots are the only way these days....sigh
