Brights for a Gloomy Day


Today's weather was absolutely dreary - high 30s/low 40s and rainy, rainy, slush. It all but completely washed away last night's snow. Around 5 AM, I looked out my window and everything was covered in a thick blanket of glittery snow. It was absolutely beautiful. By the time I woke up, the snow became hail, and then the hail became rain. Oh well, at least I was able to use my new umbrella. Bobby always gets me the most thoughtful gifts!






Outfits details:
umbrella - gift from Bobby
sunglasses - forever 21
vintage dress - thrifted and altered. It was a huge, shapeless (and sleeveless) house dress but I gave it a trapeze fit, shortened it and added  sleeves with the extra fabric.
belt - thrifted
tights - look from london
coat - zara
navy flats - thrifted

  5. I always layer my tights, in cold weather. They keep me warmer than jeans.
