Not sure why I felt inclined to put together an outfit of warm, autumnal colors post-snow, but here we are. I’m always late to the party, and apparently that counts for colors, too. Or maybe I was thinking ahead to the browns and oranges of Thanksgiving supper. Yeah, that’s it. Yeah.
I haven’t felt much like dealing with the tights/dresses combo lately, but this cozy Gudrun sweaterdress drew me out. We had a minor thaw this weekend so I was able to do 3/4 sleeves without risking frostbite. But now? Back to the deep freeze, and my forearms may not see the light of day again until spring.
Still mining my stash of pre-snow outfits for now … but fear not, you’ll have six months of photos of me in the snow.
Like all Minnesotans, I’m terrified that we’ll have a repeat of the brutally cold winter we endured last year, and have been seeking cozy sweaters and sweater dresses accordingly. This is another Twice find, originally from Macy’s, and I realize now that those sleeves are gonna be a problem now that it’s truly frigid. Layering over or under should help. I’ve been scouring Twice for secondhand garments to flesh out my revised style, and have been thrilled with the results. Tip for shoppers: Always peek at the “New” tab, since they’re uploading new goodies all the time.
We really did have a lovely fall, friends. It was absolutely amazing to be able to wear a top this lightweight at the beginning of November and be perfectly comfortable. I can’t remember the last time that happened.
I went through a moon and stars jewelry phase back in high school and honestly never thought I’d head back down that road, but this super simple, surprisingly bright crescent moon pendant looks so natural against dark and muted colors. I also wore overalls in high school and have sworn off the revival of that trend. Kinda hoping that swearing-off sticks …
Do you find yourself wearing trends or items from your childhood or teen years?
