Hearty Dots



Sweatshirt: Sundry (here or here) // Faux Suede Pants: H&M (here or the real thing here) // Purse: Madewell (similar here) // Boots: Zara (sold out - very similar but $ here) // Sunglasses: Madewell (here)

This outfit got a positive response on Instagram so I thought I'd put up a quick post with specifics. This sweatshirt with teeny tiny heart patches is the only thing I've bought this month that I haven't returned. Not only haven't I returned it, I've worn it four times already! My favorite was with my Madewell cropped overalls and a red bandanna but surprisingly I didn't take any photos. Which means it never happened and you can count on seeing it at a later date on the blog. Ha!

Giant Blouse Now and Later





Now
Coat: thrifted (see below) // Shirt: ASOS (here) // Faux Suede Pants: H&M (similar here) // Booties : Vanessa Bruno (similar here)
Later:
Shirt: ASOS (here) // Jeans: Mother (here) // Loafers: thrifted vintage GH Bass (similar here)

So I guess it's not really "later" since I actually wore both outfits today. There's just no way I could have worn the inside outfit outside. But I will. . . later.

This might be the dumbest post I've written since I started blogging. And that's saying a lot.

Pale Wide Wale



 Hat: Forever 21 (similar here) // Sweater: H&M (similar here) // Pants: Mango (here) // Coat: H&M (similar here) // Boots: Sam Edelman (similar here)


I wore my navy coat so I wouldn't completely blend into the scenery haha. I've been acquiring a lot of corduroy lately. I'd love to thrift more but most of the cords at the secondhand shops have a 3" rise. I'm well out of the phase of my life so retail it is! These Mango cords are 70% off and I looooove them. Nice substantial material with a soft wide wale. If you decide to order them though go up two sizes, they run very small. I think the blush color is going to work so well through spring too!

Plaid Coats


Coat: thrifted vintage (see below) // Top: J.Crew (here) // Jeans: Madewell (here or here) // Boots: Sorel (here)


 Sweater: Press (love this similar here) // Coat: vintage Penguin (see below) // Jeans: Madewell (here) // Boots: Zara

Plaid coats are everywhere this winter and I was lucky enough to thrift two the other evening. If you want to get in on the action check Etsy (The Edit usually has good ones) or shop new from the widget below:




See other ways I've gone mad for plaid (coats) this winter here or here.

Burgundy and Blush


 Outfit 1: Sweater: Madewell (here) // Tee: J.Crew (here) // Faux Suede Pants: H&M (here) // Purse: Madewell (similar here) // Boots: Madewell (almost exact here)
Outfit 2: Top: vintage (similar here) // Sweater: Madewell (here) // Jeans: Mother (here) // Boots: Lucky Brand (here)

I've had a slow start to 2017, how about you? I guess I should say plenty has been happening but not much I actually wanted to do. This was a very weird winter break. Ha! Anyway, these are my first outfits back from being sick and they're perfect for that slow transition back into the land of the living. Stretch pants (denim or otherwise), flat boots, and a soft sweater. Done and done.
