What I'm Wearing:
Shirt: Forever 21
Cardigan: H&M
Jeans: Holding Horses via Anthropologie
Bag: Fossil
Scarf (as headband): borrowed
Flats: Steve Madden
I have been suffering from an annoying cold these past few days. Advil cold & sinus and coffee have been the only things getting me through the day. You can't see it in these pictures (because I used sunglasses as a clever disguise...) but my eyes are all red and puffy and my nose is quite red. 

This is the only outfit I have blogged since coming down with this cold, because the thought of taking pictures with my puffy eyes and bright red nose simply did not sound appealing. I only managed to snap photos of my outfit today because I was feeling slightly better this afternoon...and was also feeling guilty about not blogging any outfits for a week.

Anyway, the first thing I thought when I put on this head scarf was that I looked like Rosie the Riveter. Perhaps I am slightly less tough, but I would say my whole ensemble has the same general color scheme as those classic wartime posters. 

Really...the resemblance is uncanny.


  1. Aw, sorry to hear you have a cold! Hope you get well soon.

    I love this "Rosie" outfit. That scarf as a headband is perfect :)

  2. This is so cute! I love how you pulled off the scarf as a headband. I've seen some of these before but they just look too trendy and not something that I'd wear to class. This is perfectly done though!


  3. So cute, love the headband, Rosie :)


  4. thank you! and I definitely think you could pull it off. maybe try with a neutral colored scarf or something!

  5. Love your sweater! I need some of that color in my closet :)

  6. thanks! When I bought it I wasn't sure if I would wear it very often...but I actually wear it all the time!

  7. Aw so cute! I really love the whole outfit and the headband!
    xoxo Maria
