What I wore as the blizzard began ripping through my town. Okay, so it wasn’t the sixteen inches we were promised, but the winds were absolutely wicked. The weather has been preventing any decent posts lately so today I decided to bear it for the sake of my precious readers. Just kidding. But really.
I had to post almost all the photos P took because they were all so fun! Sorry for the overload.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Wool coat: Macy’s
- Kitten Sweater: vintage (taken from my childhood wardrobe, circa 1997)
- Skirt: Asos UK
- Tights: Calvin Klein
- Lasercut Wedge Booties: Modcloth (old)
- Neckalce (worn as bracelet): thrifted
- Earrings: Vintage, last seen here
- Pear Pin: Vintage
- Hair bow: Primark UK
I hope everyone has a great holiday and safe travels.
Until next time,

Check out my outfit post on The Fashion Serf, it’s all about winter layering!
Fun fact of the day: snø is the Norwegian way to say snow. This is what I wore on the morning of my town’s first sprinkling of snow:
- parka – stolen from sister
- chambray shirt (underneath) – thrifted
- wool sweater – vintage
- mini bodycon skirt – Urban Outfitters
- over the knee stockings – Asos UK
- tights – Primark UK
- knee high boots – Patagonia (last years’ Christmas present from P)
- telephone pin – vintage
- bauble earrings – thrifted
I. Love. Winter. So many chunky sweaters and layering possibilities! Options are endless, especially when coziness is the goal. This season is the time to toss the idea of always being flattered by your clothing choices and call in your fisherman’s sweaters and flannel-lined trousers. Although, if you’re gong seriously oversized, I suggest a balancing scheme: bulky up top, fitted on the bottom, and so on.
As I’m typing this, my cozy little house is getting doused with a fresh blanket of snow and my kettle is whistling away. Time to break out the snow boots!

What I wore today, on this lazy Monday. It’s been unseasonably warm these last few days making for a rather wet and foggy climate which I can totally dig but which also leaves me wanting to stay hidden away indoors with Anna Karenina and a piping hot cup of earl grey.
This weekend the social butterfly in me was in full swing, however, while attending my city’s first-ever Improv Festival. It was such an incredible accumulation of talent. My sincere congratulations to my closest confidant, Lois Louis for more than one spectacular performance.
One last thing to note: my sweater is Donna Karan. Yes, a real life “designer” is clothing my pauperish body, it’s true! No, I did not pay the requisite 350 smackaroos for said sweater. I got it at Opitz. I got it at Opitz for five dollars. What is this Opitz’s you ask? Solve the mystery by clicking this link.
In other news, here’s the breakdown:
Hat: Asos UK (last seen here), Jacket: Macy’s, Sweater: Donna Karan at Opitz, Leggin’s: thrifted, Crossbody: thrifted, Brogues: Asos UK (kinda like these but not), Necklace: Mawi London, Rings: all vintage/thrifted.
Until next time,

This is what I wore on a recent day trip to Marquette, Michigan. I’d never been to Michigan before and we didn’t get to spend much time there but Marquette seemed like a sweet port town with tons of cute shops and old historic buildings and houses. We were lucky enough to find a great spot right on Lake Superior to take these photos, just LOOK at that huge barge loading dock (or, the “corridor of doom” as P so aptly described it). Very industrial-chic or something.
Anyways, here’s what I wore: Wool sweater (thrifted, vintage), Floral trousers (stolen from my mother, particularly her 90’s business-lady wardrobe), Wedge booties (thrifted, Nine West), Black leather belt (thrifted), Basketball champs medal/pin (vintage, from great grandmama), Bracelets (thrifted, thrifted, and American Eagle (?))
Until next time,
The other day P and I finally made it out to a local orchard to pick our own peck of apples. It was an incredibly beautiful autumn day and we treated ourselves to a HUGE caramel apple, made right on the orchard.
P shot all of these photos on lovely black and white film. The colours were great that day but I love the vintagey feel of monochrome.
Above is my “I’ve got caramel all over my face and the wind is blowing my hair right into it” face. Yeah.
Anyways, here’s what I wore!
Dress/UrbanOutfitters, Belt/Vintage, Woven Flats/Vintage, Earrings/Vintage, Bag/Lucky Brand, Scarf (on bag)/Stolen from Mom!
witching hour noun ˈwi-chiŋˈau̇(-ə)r : the time of day when supernatural creatures such as witches, demons, and ghosts are thought to appear and to be at their most powerful and black magic to be most effective.

My favorite part of this outfit is my jewelry. I’m wearing three vintage bracelets, one with all ten commandments as charms, one with ‘best’ and ‘friends’ charms; I love them both! One of my rings is from UO and the creepy clutching hand one is a design of my own, wrought out of sterling silver with a blue agate stone.
After all the hocus pocus, we retreated inside to relax over hot chai lattes and a cozy movie night.
Here’s What I Wore:
