scarf from Thailand//Target jacket//American Apparel dress//Forever 21 skirt//Urban Outfitters shoes and headband// DIY'd nylons cut into socks
Layering by neccesity. Every single winter it's the exact same story; I will suffer though almost anything in order to not wear pants. I'd really like to add a few pairs into the mix this year but find it such difficult feat to get the exact right size and style so I just sort of don't bother with it all and stick to my trusty skirts + tights. This particular outfit began as a simple, thoughtless blend of a dress/jacket/shoes but quickly turned into what you see now. I figured the dress was too short for a day like today (well, too short for almost any day really!) so I put the polka dotted skirt underneath it which I like to think makes anything look cooler. I stuck the socks on under my [new shoes!] because if my toes are cold I'm cold. And finally wrapped the scarf around so that everything else looked purposeful; well... and because I just can't resist scarves - ever. I love this scarf, it's so oversized I can wear it in a lot of ways and it doubles as a really comfortable mini pillow on 45 minute bus rides at 7:30 in the morning :)
What are you all up to this halloween weekend? I'm working on two costumes for a couple different events. The over-acheiver in me is really excited to have finally come up with two fabulous ideas with only a day or two to left to make them in. I'll try my best to get blog-worthy pictures (always difficult for me on holidays for some reason) and post them soon!
