Here Comes the Sun

MAC clutch - courtesy of Rebecca Minkoff
dangle bag charms - made it at my friend's DIY party


Last week, the temperature got high enough in the afternoon to completely ditch the coat and tights. I took that opportunity and ran with it. It lasted for all of two hours before I went home and put on pajama pants and socks, but it was a lovely couple of hours nonetheless. I do think I'll wear opaque tights with this skirt next time; I was a little afraid my bum might make a guest appearance (luckily, it did not).

I'm afraid today will require a coat and scarf, which is unfortunate because it's difficult to thrift and shop with excess layers. That's my plan for today - thrifting and a little Christmas shopping. To prepare, I woke up extraordinarily early for a Sunday morning and ate a slice of pumpkin pie for breakfast. Being an adult has its perks.







p.s. Little puppy returns!

  6. This outfit looks so perfectly effortless!

    I plan on doing some vintage shopping pretty quick too. SO much fun (if you're in the mood for it).

    I never attempted vintage or thrift shopping in NY the few times i've been there but I think that'll be my goal for my next trip.

  11. Great combination, love both the skirt and tee. I'm amazed it was warm enough to go with bare legs, I've been wearing tights for well over a month in London!

  29. Haha, I tried on this skirt, and was also afraid that my bum might show! And it's also so funny to see how different the weather is right now across the blogosphere... I laughed when I saw you with bare legs and a teeshirt, as I'm shivering underneath a wool coat, gloves & boots, and there is already lots of snow on the ground!

  30. so jealous of the nice weather!!! :D you look quite edgy there! love it!

  31. Aaaah I live in constant fear of bum exposure when I wear bodycon things. It is funny how annoying it is to wear layers while thrifting. I forget sometimes and do something silly like wear 9 eyelet boots with socks, tights, a slip, a dress, and a cardi. At that point I have to be pretty much set on buying something to try it on :P

  32. Love your bag, the colour is amazing !

  33. Warm enough for no tights? HOLY TAMOLY!
    I'm sitting in bed IN A COAT AND SCARF. How ridiculous of the weather. Well... enjoyably ridiculous for me, not so much for me.

  37. Pumpkin pie! Breakfast! YES! YES! YES! hehe.

    I've been trying to shred my own shirt but it's sooo time consuming. It takes forever - have you ever done one?

    Isn't it soo nice when the weather surprises us... in a good way? ;)

  40. Okay, I know this sounds creepy, but I'm more obsessed with that puppy that anything else in this post! I love his second "surprise" appearance. He is so cute! I think you said his owner ties him while she sweeps outside? Whatever it is, I hope he is well taken care of. He looks a little scruffy...I just want to bathe him and get him all soft and fluffy for some cuddling time! Okay, I'll stop typing now before this post gets any creepier, lol.
