More Snow






H&M Hat / Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Madewell Wool Sweater (thrifted) / Joie Silk Dress (ebay) / Trouve Belt (thrifted) / Mulberry Bag (second hand on ebay) / Rag and Bone Boots (ebay)

I normally have a hard time winterizing this dress but I really liked it with the big shearling coat and the gray wool sweater.  I would have thought all the black would have been too heavy visually for the florals but the gray sweater seemed to help balance that out a little.

Snowed In








UO Hat / Old Navy Scarf / Banana Republic Cardigan (thrifted) and Pants (thrifted) / Madewell Silk Top (thrifted) / Coach Bag (gift, thrifted) / UGG Wedge Boots (thrifted)

This was a school field trip day outfit, my eldest's class went to the Alaska Room at one of the local schools.  It's a classroom where our elders from a few different Alaskan Indigenous tribes teach the children about their cultures and pass on skills.  The ladies whom teach at this classroom are all so kind and  we are very fortunate to be able to hear them pass on their stories and knowledge and that they are so gracious in donating their time to such an important project.

Bring On The Cold (please don't)








UO Hat and Cardigan (thrifted, old) / H&M Scarf (thrifted) / Isabel Marant Shirt(ebay, older) / Current/Elliott Leather Pants (ebay, older) / Alexander Wang Bag (ebay) / Vera Wang Leather Boots (consignment)
Hey, a hundred percent second hand outfit, not bad!  At this point however I think most of my closet is second hand either through ebay, thrift or consignment stores.  A few things I buy new in stores but for the most part second hand prices have really spoiled me for paying retail.
Ignore my dopey faces, it was cold and my eyes were watering like crazy.  We're down to just a few hours of daylight right now and it will be scarcer as we get closer to Winter Solstice ad end up with about two hours of twilight on the Solstice.  After that the days will start to get longer again but it's a long time before warmer temps head back around.  We haven't even hit the rough stuff yet, ugh!

Just A Little







UO Hat /Helmut Lang Coat / Banana Republic Sweater (thrifted) / AEO Bodysuit / Elizabeth and James Silk Maxi (old) / Vince Boots (consignment, old) / Mulberry Bag

There's some crazy proportions going on here with the midi skirt, the long coat and cardigan, the high waist of the skirt and the tall shaft of the boots - none of this is suppose to work for petites but I really like how it all came together.  It's a little awkward but in  good way.
The title obviously doesn't refer to the snowfall, it was dumping the day, in the five mins that I took pictures it had built upon my hat brim. Weve gotten about two feet of snow so far and it's all dry fluff - no good for snowballs nor snowmen!

Twee It Up







Hat (state far vendor, old) / Buffalo Coat (thrifted) / Elizabeth and James Sweater (thrifted, older) / Winter Kate Dress (ebay / Michael Michael Kors Boots (consignment, old) / Free People Bag (ebay, old)

Well, this is a throw back to the twee of 2010 but I sort of dig it.  I don't think these boots are suppose to be slouchy but they don't really stay up now and since slouchy boots are suppose to be the "in" boot of he season, I'll just roll with it and pretend it's intentional.

We Wear Black On Black Friday







...in remembrance of all those poor souls who work in retail today.  Good luck and ....well, good luck.  Retail is rough any time of year but Black Friday is a special sort of hell.
