Geez, this outfit has a lot of STUFF in it. I didn’t even realize until I listed everything out.

I feel like I can sneak in one more wearing of this Icelandic wool wrap before packing it away for the warm seasons. Especially since it’s got such a lovely open weave.

And yes, I’m wearing a watch. Stop the presses! Although I haven’t been a regular watch-wearer for years, I’ve always loved Skagen’s clean, minimalist designs. And since this watch was a whopping $41, I sprung for it. Gorgeous + bargainous = happy-making.

  • Oh my goodness, I am loving this outfit so very much. The colors are absolutely amazing, but I am especially loving that wrap/belt thing around your waist. And it looks like spring is finally headed your way!!

  • Nadine

    The watch-wearing was the first thing I noticed – looks GOOD!

  • I love that wrap!

  • I love the wrap! I would not put it away.I would use it for times in the summer when you want to look really elegant, but know that the AC will be cranked to 11.

  • Lisa Walter

    So cute, Sally! Love the patterned tights..it makes the outfit..oh and the wrap! It’s all so adorable!

  • I LOVE that belt! And the shoes! Everything about this outfit just works đŸ™‚

  • Teresa

    I like some of your outfits, but the most attractive feature of all is your brilliant smile. You wear your smile and I think you pretty shine in any outfit.

  • PHX Mama

    Your snow! It’s almost — dare I say it? — gone!!! Hooray for spring! (And nice obi belt, too!)

  • I agree with Lisa – the tights really make this outfit. The more I see those pumps, the more the crackled effect grows on me.

  • What a charming outfit! Well done!

    (I’m not dead, I’m just in O-Chem.)

    • Sal

      Yay! I’ve missed you!

  • Kaitlin

    You look great! Your legs are hott in those tights. yes, two ts.

  • That wrap is stunning. Iceland produces some fantastic knits.

    Really like the shoes, also!

  • Gorgeous, it’s all in the details! I love the shoes paired with the tights.

    Hi Sally…I have been foloowing you for about a year now and enjoy your blog very much….always one of the first I look at when I have a “blog catch-up” moment. Love your style and love your commentary! I have a question…I often notice that many articles of clothing you wear you list as “thrifted”. Perhaps I have missed a post or two on thrifting, if I have, forgive me. But do you have any tips on the wheres and hows of thrifting? I live in the suburbs of Chicago, and unless I go downtown, my thrifting options seem limited, but maybe I am missing the boat somewhere. Would love a post on thrifting!

  • I think gray is a wonderful color on you. Love your Icelandic shawl!

  • I love the wrap! I keep thinking of knitting something like that, but I’m not sure how practical it would be. Do you find that it stays put during the day, or do you keep needing to adjust and rearrange it?

    • Sal

      This particular type of wool is super sticky, so when it hits itself, it sticks and gets all wadded up. I adjust it constantly, but I’d bet a fiber that is a bit slipperier would work better!

  • Oooh, I love that watch! <runs to Amazon)

  • Susan

    I love this outfit on you! You look great in it.

  • So pretty! I love this outfit, especially the reds and the grey, and the multiple layers of “wrapping” going on with the belt and the wrap!

  • Cel

    That wrap is lovely, and those shoes are so cool! I don’t know how I’d live without wearing a watch personally, I feel naked without one. I get a watch tan in the summer even haha…

  • I am loving the combo of the textures wrap with the textured tights…great dress, very versatile!

  • Eleanorjane

    Beautiful outfit! Love all of it, especially those gorgeous tights! đŸ™‚

  • I love all the textures here. The wrap, tights and pattern on the shoes really lift this from lovely to amazing.
