California Winter

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

What I'm Wearing:
Top: Anthropologie "Winsome Pullover" (on sale here)
Dress (worn as skirt): Nordstrom BP
Peacoat: Nordstrom BP
Scarf: Forever 21
Belt: Target
Tights: HUE (similar here)
Boots: Cathy Jean Shoes
Today was truly a perfect Southern California winter's day—crisp, cold, and sunny. It was a day that I could finally wear tights, boots, and a coat and actually be appropriately dressed. 

Another good thing about today? the fact that I'm on my third fourth cup of coffee as I write this. 

The best thing about today? the fact that I restyled one of my favorite old dresses (that I haven't worn since my junior year of high school!) in a new and different way. My whole outfit came together in about 5 minutes after my orignal plan involving a turtleneck looked slightly less flattering than I had imagined. 
Happy Tuesday!

    Adorable! I am so wanting to figure out wearing a dress as a skirt. Stood in my closet last night for 30 minutes trying to 'see' an outfit come together. LOL

  8. Love the print of that dress! Also I'm glad you've got yourself a crisp winter day to rock the tights, boots, and scarf! That's a trifecta in my book.
