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?
Have I mentioned that I’ve been sick for about five weeks now? (Definitely did over on Instagram.) This is from several weeks ago, but I was sick then, too. And when I’m sick and my brain is in a fog, I reach for my favorite cool weather formula: Prairie Underground hoody, leggings, and boots. Comfy and cute. Done and done.
This particular hoody used to be a dusty rose color. It wasn’t my wisest purchase since dusty rose generally makes me look ill – even when I’m not! – so I overdyed it black. As you can see, the zipper didn’t dye, what with being plastic and all. I thought it might annoy me to have a mismatched zipper, but I actually kinda like the effect. Which is fortunate because I’ve got the skills to overdye, but I can’t swap out a zipper. I KNOW MY LIMITS.
