Inspired by...

Thurs12/8

Thurs 12/8
works cited: loft cords; sweater c/o ruche; j. crew tee; not sure where scarf is from but possibly target or a street stall; breda watch; boots c/o blowfish; socks i'm not sure either (gap maybe?)

I pinned these two pictures a few weeks ago (from this post at Calivintage) thinking that I would try to make a slightly-updated 90's grunge outfit at some point. I loved the thick sweaters, tights, and boots in the photos and the combination of several neutral colors at once. In general, I go for structure over slouch but lately I've really been in the mood for thicker sweaters, cords and jeans, and boots. And this is pretty much made for a drizzly day reading, writing, and grading.

Love it! The colors are pretty together. I'm actually wearing a similar color combo today, minus the burgundy.

Ha! I love this - and no surprise, as it's exactly what I've been wearing for the last week straight. Swap the boots for brogues and you even have my outfit of this very minute - nothing like drizzly weather and a little stress to have me reaching for something cozy and warm every day - and now you've inspired me to mix it up with my gray skinnies for tomorrow. :)

Perfect end of the semester wear!
On a different note, my husband forwarded me this yesterday, and I thought you'd enjoy it (I laughed until I cried):

Good luck with your end-of-term paper grading! I quite miraculously have a bit of a "lull" between today and next Tuesday...and then I get to read and grade final portfolios and calculate final grades for my undergrads. But to GET this lull I went through a mad rush of paper-grading between Monday morning and, well, ten minutes ago. I love your outfit...I'm totally stealing grey cords/navy sweater for sometime soon. :)

I really like how casual this outfit is but still styling because of the shoes and pops of color.

I love it! I especially love the way you styled the skinnies with those boots. I do have one request, though... stop dressing so freaking cute! It makes me want to go shopping, and I've got xmas presents to buy!!!!

It's funny, somehow you look "put together" even when you are just wearing such a comfy outfit. I love your style, seriously.

I am digging the top-of-head bun lately! And I think this outfit has just enough slouch but not so much that it looks sloppy at all.

Annie said...

Love those cords...looks super comfy!
