Something I Wore Before It Got Cold


Jacket – Billy Reid via Mill Mercantile // Sweater – Anthropologie // Skirt – ASOS // Shoes – Max Studio // Necklace – Anthropologie (less intense version) // Sunglasses – Banana Republic

Did I mention that I have a backlog of outfit photos? Well, I do (see: life in grad school). This was taken before winter came (obvs). In fact, I vaguely remember running a quick errand in this outfit, and then coming home and putting on tights. I’m obsessed with this jacket and I feel like I didn’t get to wear it enough before it got cold — although this particular week I did wear that jacket (and the necklace) two days in a row!

Glasses – Fine Arts Optical // Scarf – J.Crew // Sweater – PLAY Comme des Garçons

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Every time I want to write something I think – well, I should probably work on this paper or finish my reading, or wash the dishes in the sink so I can have a clean fork to eat off of. When I started school I was so excited to shoot outfits every day. It might have been possible, but then I started a job, and then another, and then another. I recently quit my 3rd job, which nets me a little more time.

Are you following me on Instagram? Even when things get slow on the blog there’s usually some action over there.

In any case, I posted this photo on Instagram and a friend asked me where I got the sweater. This particular one is from Comme des Garçons ‘Play’ line. I snapped it up at Rand + Statler a couple of years ago when they had a good sale. They’re pretty pricey so I found a bunch of other heart stuff too. Enjoy!

15 Stylish Boots for Winter (Or, Resolving My Anxiety About Winter by Shopping for Boots)

Technically, I’ve done winter before. Four times in Chicago, and once in Iowa. And yet, six years in the Bay Area completely obliterated my ability to deal with extreme weather (both hot and cold). Of all the things I’ve been stressing about, my main thing has been maintaining warm, dry, feet. Preferably in shoes that look cute AND can handle the elements.

Here are 15 boots that I’ll be considering this winter:

Rugged Winter Boots

Clockwise from top left: Nike – $100 // Timberland – $150 // Nike – $100 // Khombu – $69 // Sorel – $94 // Columbia  – $120
Furry Winter Boots
Left to right: Sorel – $220 // Michael Kors – $275 // Bearpaw – $199

Everyday Essential Boots

Clockwise from top left: Michael Kors – $250 // Cole Haan – $298 // The North Face – $165 // Michael Kors – $245 // Madewell – $298 // Cole Haan – $278

Luckily the temperatures haven’t gone crazy cold just yet. Are you a winter-weather veteran? What boots do you recommend?
