Layering (Godiva) Tank - All Saints
Jeans - The Limited, thrifted
Boots - Frye, ebay
Cat Hat - Target, gift

I love when my brother is in town because we're both "go" people. We do so much, I haven't been home at midnight since the 23rd. We shopped, ate, watched movies, even priced my tattoo (gotta make an appointment though! I hoped for a walk-in, but I'm going to need to save up). I'm sad he had to go back home, but we had such a great Christmas. Now I get to look forward to my birthday coming up in a couple of weeks!

Today is to be a rest and recoup day, except for a quick excursion to the post office (Sheila and Keely, keep an eye on your mailboxes!). It's rainy, wet and looking like snow. I bundled up in lots of layers and furry stuff, including my new hat from Mom! It pairs awesomely with my thrifted fur coat. Unfortunately I've been leaning heavily on jeans/trouser based outfits since it's gotten so cold.

What you can't see from this outfit is my socks. My MIL gifted me two pairs of merino wool socks that are the dreamiest things to ever grace my feet. She bought them at a tractor supply store of all places. I've got intentions of getting more.


  1. Love that sweater! I like the lines in it, it's flattering on you.

    A tattoo!! Awesome! What are you getting? I want one too, one of these days I'll save up and brave it!!

  2. Have fun with your brother! I like the kitty cat hat.

  3. I need to shop at tractor supply stores more often, I guess!

  4. I LOVE the layered tank underneath the cropped sweater! Sounds like you had a great time with your brother. I love my little brother too! Can't wait to see the new tatoo! What are you going for?

  5. I buy Smart Wool socks when I can find them on sale. They are excellent. I wore them when I walked during the summer and they helped stop blisters.
    That is the cutest hat! I looks just darling on you.
    The tank under the sweater is such a nice touch, especially with the points of the tank hem and the chevron design on the sweater. Great style.

  6. Oh, you are such a dear! I will let you know when your present arrives. :) Thank you!

    Love the hat! It's so fun - I am far too old for it, but I love it on you.

  7. I dig this layering. I was going through my old mags today and spotted a similar concept.

    Can't wait for my package! I'll let you know when it arrives.

  8. oh, i wish i can see your socks :) you look pretty. have a nice holiday and happy new year :)

  10. I love your jeans :) And I consider myself a "go" person too - sometimes I feel lazy just sitting around and need to be doing something!
