A girly polar bear

Dress: Anthropologie
Sweater: Anthropologie
Tights: HUE
Shoes: gift, Clark's (thanks Mom)
Necklace: Forever 21
Lipstick: Wet N Wild, "Coraline"

We wet from 63 degrees to 36 degrees in about 14 hours. #Chicago.
Sooo, it's officially bundle up season.

I've worn this outfit at least 10 times. Working, playing, eating, drinking.

There are a few distinct moods to my outfits. 
1 - boyish prep
2 - glamorous grandma
3 - easily excited 12 year old girl
4 - mildly inappropriate drama queen
and then the fifth, 
which this outfit is the prototype of:
5 - snuggly person who doesn't ever want to get out of bed.

So what if the cardigan is an XL? So what if the dress is also 3 sizes too large?

That chair in the foreground was an alley-way find over the summer! I fell so in love that I drunkenly carried it on my back for a mile to get it back to my house. Hilarity followed. (Many apologies to my very patient friends Julia and Ashley, who I roped into helping me.)

Maybe I'll do a decor post in the future and show him off.

How do you guys get pills off of your sweaters? It's clearly time I invest in some little contraption.

These were a birthday gift from my Mom and they're AMAZING. They look right with everything I own. And it looks like I'm not the only lady who likes em! I saw them on Bonnie of Flashes of Style a while ago, too. Have you guys spotted these on any other ladies? Do you have them?? I'm curious to see how other people are wearing them. Get them here.

Sweater: here, here


Happy Black Friday to you! Be nice to the people working, and don't trample each other.

I am so glad you are back. I would say number 2 and 5 are my favorite descriptions of this outfit.

And yes to a decor post! Hope you are having a Happy Thanksgiving...weekend!

I like that you have 5 outfit moods. :) Makes me wonder what mine would be ...
Those shoes are so cute - Clarks are so well-made, and usually comfy, too. Looking forward to seeing you style them different ways.
I'd like to see that chair - it already has such a great story behind it, I'm curious!
