H&M Dress (thrifted)
Lucky Brand Leather Purse (gift)
Leather Over the Knee Boots (gift)
This is one of those outfits that I just really like. I like a long coat over a swing-y dress and while I know most people hate over the knee boots, I personally like how they look on short people. These boots were a Christmas gift and I adore them, they have a lower heel so they're easy to walk in for the winter time and ice and I think they sorta make me look taller.
One of the un-sung heros of my closet has been my Banana Republic black cashmere cardigan. I've worn it with almost every outfit this winter, it's a perfect layering piece for over dressed and under coats, it's usually not visible but its very warm. I love cashmere as a alternative to wool, I think it's just as warm and not nearly as itchy. I have a couple "junk" cashmere sweaters that I've worn out so that they're no longer pretty but they're great for work or getting firewood.
