Navy sweater


Sweater - JohnPaulRichard, thrifted
Scarf - thrifted
Jeans - Levi Strauss, thrifted
Boots - Trippen Quick

 Ah back to more normal days! I bundled up in my leafy sweater and favorite dark wash jeans. Simple scarf and boots combo was perfect for shopping with my MIL.


And some excitement today - more Trippens! These were a last minute Christmas prezzie that showed up this afternoon (please excuse the sock lines and blotchy feet). These are the Trippen Tetra from Ped! I really wanted the Ice color in the Good, but it had sold out in my size, so I snapped the Tetra up instead. They are technically the same color as the boots I have on, but it shows how the dusty frosted leather darkens as it ages. I've really wanted white shoes forever, but nothing suited my fancy. This frosted color works perfectly as a not-quite-white shoe.

Also I am excited to present a swap I did with the lovely Kristan. She contacted me a little bit ago wanting an obi and some buttonflowers, mentioning she made glass beads. Admittedly I wear little jewelry, and mostly wear only what has been gifted to me. However I clicked through to her pictures and fell in love with her craftsmanship. So we did a partial swap and she made me a custom koi 'bead' to wear as a pendant. He is so gorgeous!! She worked off my idea for a bead to match my socks. I cannot wait for him to come in the mail. Click the picture to take you through to her blog and see more shots and more of her work.

  10. I wore something similar yesterday, my sweater had stars instead of leaves - which of course made me think of you! You can never go wrong with a cozy sweater and scarf though!! I love your new shoes and cool fish!!

  12. Gorgeous near-monochrome outfit, such lovely lines! Great new Trippens - again with the marvellous toe detailing - and the glass fish bead is out of this world. Incredible colours and scale-shapes!
