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?
You locals will know that we had our first snow of the season this week. Weeelllll, here’s the thing. I’ve got a backlog of fall outfits AND I am still fighting off a wicked stomach flu that took me out on Friday. (This after four weeks of a cough and five weeks of a cold. BAH!) So we have this recent but not immediate outfit of black upon black.
The cardigan is one of a small but growing group of items featuring gold hardware. Still a silver girl at heart, but black and gold sure do look fresh together. I love the off-kilter shape of this sweater, too, and the way the zippers almost match up … but not quite.
