What I wore: 
Sweater: J.Crew
Dress: Vintage/ Beacon's Closet ($18)
Lace top c/o Lulu's
Tights: American Apparel Super Opaque ($25)
Boots c/o Lulu's
Bracelet: Thrifted ($2)
Bag: Vintage Coach/ Thrifted ($7-ish)

Where I wore it: to the office

Let me start by saying: this outfit is not practical. at. all. I know that. Tuesday was one of those hurried mornings that resulted in me throwing on an outfit that I had stored away in my brain, with no thought given to the fact that it was six degrees out. Whoops. Needless to say, my hair didn't exactly make it "in" to the outfit, which is fine because it spent the rest of the day buried beneath a hat (I had a puffy coat and moccasins close by too, for the drive to and from work). January has finally shown it's true colors, and those colors are cold. Sometimes it's nice to be able to escape the cold to my warm office, but I've spent this whole week daydreaming about hibernation.

That jumper is probably the greatest thrift find ever. I am beyond jealous.

Brrr! It's a beautiful outfit, but you must've been frozen stiff! Love the earthy tones and cheeky leopard wedges.

This is such a cute outfit and everything is super!

Aw this mini dress is so cute on you. I absolutely love the color of the tights you paired with it. Your leopard booties are pretty awesome too! I don't think I'd be able to stop wearing those boots if I owned them. I'd make any excuse to pair them with every outfit.

practical is overrated anyway, isn't it? i can't decide if your dress, the lace blouse, or your shoes are my fave. i like the whole outfit. :)
