A Cozy, Warm Winter

 Wow, I cannot believe tomorrow is the first of December, this last month feels like it flew by, despite Thanksgiving been quite late in the month.  Our weather has been unseasonably warm this year so I haven't really had to break out the heavy duty coats, layers and boots yet.  I'm kind of enjoying it!  This outfit is actually a skirt over a dress- I found this dress after being inspired by someone on Instagram wearing it and then found the skirt version at the consignment store and yeah, this skirt got worn a lot this week. I've really enjoyed midi skirts this winter and most of mine are full A-line skirts so it's nice the have a "softer" version of the midi skirt.  I really enjoyed the volume and movement of this outfit.

 My boots have stars and moons embroidered on them!  I've really been into galaxy and star prints lately so I get excited when I find something like that.  This was just a bunch of layering and possibly over the top but I liked it.

 The midi skirt by itself, I wore the Victorian influenced Free People jacket I found on ebay from the last post and I loved how it worked with the skirt.  The boots are just big chunky Fryes but I liked the slouchy look f them and wanted to give my lace up boots a break.

 Yeah, I was really into this skirt this week, it works so ell with everything. I really went for it with the layering and I liked the western influences going on - it's cool that this skirt can be worn in a few different style genres.

The red cloak returns!  I'm really in love with this cloak, it's totally over the top but that's what I like about it. I went hardcore for the folklore vibes with this outfit and wore a green velvet dress and then amped up the look with the embroidered jacket from the last post, my big belt, lace up boots and I'm really pleased at how it all came together.  The red and green feels a little Christmasy but it is hat time of year so I don't care too much.

It's Cape Week

 I found a few vintage opera capes and they are so gorgeous - this red one has a deep hood and the velvet is so high quality.  I went with a fairly over the top outfit but I feel like a long red velvet cloak deserves an over the top outfit.

 I'm a 1930s wizard ya'll. This was for the 19302/1940s challenge on reddit's FFA subreddit, this is an actual 1930s opera cape so...t works? Haha, I don't think mixing formal wear with everyday wear was a thing but I really loved this outfit.

 Layers, layers, layers!  I just piled on a bunch of sweaters and a cape and called it an outfit.  I liked how the two sweaters worked together with he different prints and shapes and then the brown lace up bots and bag helped with that vintage " collecting random shit in the woods because that works great when it's freaking cold and tons of snow" look.  Lol, it wasn't actually cold but I've been super into that look this winter.

 Lots of layering again, this time with a wool poncho and I like parts of I but I feel like the white dress was too stark here.

 Almost the same exact outfit as the 1930s wizard because I really loved that outfit, I just wore a bright red coat with it and a big scarf.

 Again for the 1930s/40s challenge on reddit's Female Fashion Advice subreddit, this time I took inspo from some photos of Russian women in the 1930s and some sewing patterns - this wasn't suppose to be a really literal cosplay but what I could throw together from what I had on hand. This skirt has been getting a ton of wear, I love the midi skirts righ now and the embroidery is really fun.

 Just a quick photo of a plain outfit, leg warmers a huge sweater coat, a skirt ad some Sorrels.

Told you I was into midi skirts this year. It was fun to try styling this coat in a new way, I liked it with the plaid skirt and the tall boots- these boos have been in almost all of my outfits this week! One of my best buys for sure.  These are not the most exciting photos, our sun is setting and it's dark by 3pm and we'll continue losing light until the /Solstice where we get a whole whopping 2 hrs of twilight as the sun won't even hot over the horizon on that day. It isn't awful, it just makes taking photos hard and I have tosnap them when I can which means sometimes I can't get too fancy. Ugh.
