Outfit Post: Happy December

Yet another outfit worked around my lumberjack boots. I topped the whole thing off with a buffalo check scarf, just perfect!

Wooly warmth

I have something of a wool blanket/throw collection going - they're one of my favorite things to buy as souvenirs when in sheepy countries (Ireland, Scotland) and they're terribly nice to have around for cozy tv watching. So far I have a great purple tartan one, a purple/cream check one, and an Avoca red/grey tartan.

Someday, I'd love a good classic Pendleton striped throw. Maybe vintage?

But now, I'm loving the offerings from Faribault Woolen Mill Co. I think it's my current love of buffalo check, probably inspired by being back in the mountains and countryside, where homey plaids and rugged leather and plush fur feel so much more appropriate than in the city.

They also have a great Stewart plaid. I'd love either that or a Black Watch throw.

Outfit Post: Pony up

I based this whole outfit off my cute new lumberjack boots. I love the buffalo check laces and I loved the $23 price tag (after discounts and gift card).

Outfit Post: Fine and Dandy

The weather's been fairly mild of late, so there may perhaps be a few more outfit posts before the snow starts again. I had to share this one because it features my beloved Liberty shirt with a brand-new hot pink tie. Plus a new haircut!

We may be coming to the end of outfit posts for the winter - it's getting a bit too cold out to take pictures! There may be some on nice days, we'll see.

Outfit Post: Zips

I wasn't sure about mixing green + red, no matter how soon Christmas is coming, but I think with the grey and navy neutrals it works here. Plus I like the slightly retro feeling of the clogs and the cut-out top mixed with the more modern menswear of the cargo trousers and blazer.

Outfit Post: Twilight

This was my second outfit yesterday, for our fancy dinner for Mom's birthday. Sorry for the picture quality, it was just twilight when I took these - damn that daylight savings time!

Dress, tights, shoes: Target
Coat: Old Navy
Earrings: Anthro

I also had an audience for my photo session - she stuck around the whole time, alternating munching on grass with staring at me.

Outfit Post: Bomber

Yesterday was my mom's birthday, so I spent the morning with her shopping and having fun. I'm taking advantage of the lingering fall weather before winter sets in to wear my shorts once or twice more, albeit with my cozy bomber jacket on top.

Happy birthday Mom!

Outfit Post: Road Trip

Lack of posts lately is due to a little no-internet vacation I took to my family's cabin, then a few days of total laziness. This is the outfit I wore to drive down to the cabin, plus a stopover at my sister's.

Outfit Post: Twirl

This maxi skirt was another purchase of this summer which has been getting a lot of wear. The pleats help keep the volume under control while adding maximum twirlosity.

Outfit Post: Apple Picking

I didn't actually need to go anywhere to pick apples, just up to the road on our property. But I wore a cute outfit anyway! Apple picking is way more fun getting them off a half-wild tree that's been left to over grow because it means using the tractor!
