I’ve Waited For You Winterlong

January 23, 2012

H&M sweater, booties & scarf, Club Monaco cardigan, tights & skirt,
Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Wilfred blouse, belt from Mexico
 These pictures were taken last week before a) the snow and slush came and b) my body finally decided to get sick. A perfect example of why you shouldn’t “tempt fate,” as one of my friends likes to say. I kept boasting to my boyfriend over the past two weeks about how miraculous it was that I hadn’t gotten very sick yet all winter. It’s like I was waving a red flag or something.

Though I felt less than amazing, I still had a great time at Mount Baker over the weekend. My friends and I did absolutely nothing other than bundling up in blankets on the couch next to a fire, watching the snow fall down outside. Kind of the perfect thing to do if you’re not feeling well actually. I’m staying home from school today in the hopes that I feel 100% by the end of the day then it’s back to reality tomorrow!
How did you all spend your weekends? Hope you lovelies are all of to a good start of the week so far! To Vogue or Bust

    Love the color of blush pink with purple tights. Brilliant! Hope you will feel better soon. I am quite superstitious and I won't say I haven't been sick for this long and next thing you know, you will be the one being sick. Guess I have done that a few times and every time I got sick after that.

  • Reply Cee January 24, 2012 at 1:59 am

    This look is just cozy and perfect for winter, pally. I must say, I admire the way you've been styling up coloured tights lately. I live in fear of tights that are anything other than black, gray or nude… Let's just say I experimented with neon tights that I modified with a pair of scissors back in the day and I'm still scarred 🙂 Plus that sweater (hello, elbow patches!) is pretty much perfect in every way… Any chance there is absolutely no animal fibre lurking in it? I'm guessing no. Alas, I'll just have to admire it on you 🙂 Hope you're feeling better soon. Can't wait for our date this weekend!

  • Reply Marisa January 24, 2012 at 2:24 am

    I adore the soft colours you're wearing. It's so romantic and accented really well with your fishtail braid. Hope you recover quickly!

    Aww I'm sorry you're not feeling well, but you look gorgeous as always in your photos! I love this outfit, it looks so cozy. Glad you had a nice weekend despite being sick. My weekend was so-so. I had to write a paper, bor-ing.

    You have such an amazing knack for layering and colours. Every piece you've chosen here works effortlessly to add to the overall look. And is that a fishtail braid I spy? Soft and romantic, I really like it on you!
