More Snow

Fred Meyer Cap / Burberry London Shearling Coat (thrifted) / Isabel Marant Top (ebay) / Rag and Bone Suede Pants (ebay) / Sam Edelman Boots (ebay) / AEO Bag

I so happy to be able to wear this coat again!  It's not only fabulous and an amazing thrift store find, it's also REALLY warm.   I also like it's vibe with this cap and have been having a lot of fun wearing the top this winter.  (On another note, I'm also happy to be able to wear these pants again because they are one of my favorite pairs and it feel pretty good to have achieved a goal I set for myself earlier this year.)

Boots and Skirt

Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Marni Sweater (consignment) / Wool Skirt (thrifted) / Sam Edelman Boots (ebay)

Well, it's hard to beat wool with a side order of wool and a bit of cashmere thrown in to stay warm. I really like this longer wool pencil skirt with the tall boots but I think neck time I'll go with a slightly more fitter top, this one kept bunching up a little bit too much for my liking. I do like the chunky coat over it, it's warm and I love the proportions of a slim bottom pair with a heavy coat on top.

How To Wear A Muppet

Fred Meyer Cap / Free People Kimono as a scarf and Sweater (thrifted) / Rag and Bone Pants (old, ebay) / Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Jeffrey Campbell Boots (old, ebay)

Step one - skin a muppet.  Step two - put it on.

I know, this is a goofy sweater.  It resembles either a skinned Muppet or the bathroom rug and yet I still like it.  Maybe because it's orange?  I dunno but like it I do and roll with the jokes I will.

Party Dress

UO Hat/ Fred Meyer Scarf / Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Isabel Marant for H&M Dress (ebay / Vera Wang Boots (consignment) / Dooney and Burke Bag (thrifted)

This is a party dress!  And I actually have holiday parties to go to this year!  Exclamation points!!

That aside, this dress is wowza in person - the material does not photograph well but it is amazing in person, the prints a little more subdued and is really cool looking.  I think the Isabel Marant collab with H&M was one o their best collabs, almost every item looked very Isabel Marant-ish and not chap tall with most items being nicely made with nice materials.  It's been a few years since I came out so I'm slowing finding them for cheap and I've been very happy with each one so far.
In other news, Happy Christmas Eve!  Or is it Merry Christmas Eve?  Christmas really snuck up this year with being on a Monday but it's been a really fun season with lots of events oig on around town. My sister and I took the kids to see the Nutcracker (which was great and everyone loved) and we've been pretty non stop with events at school and the library.  It's been great and I feel very grateful that it's ben such a nice December.   Merry Christmas everyone!

Hat On Sunny Winter Day

H&M Scarf (thrifted with tags on) / Hinge Leather Jacket (thifted) / Joie Top (ebay) / Paige Jeans (thrifted) Vera Wang Lavender Boots (consignment) / AEO Bag

I love this scarf!  It's thick, heavy and so long which sounds awful but it's amazing!  I found it at VV with tags still on and while it might be a cheap scarf, it's worn nicely with no piling and looks pretty expensive in person.  (Not as expensive as the cashmere A.L.C Canada scarves, those are swoon worthy)  The gray also works well for my wardrobe and helps tie the browns in with all of the black.
