Ugly Sweater Party





Outfit Details:
hat - Bobby's
ugly sweater - thrifted, hand-me-down from my mom (she wore it to an ugly sweater party)
tank top - Parker
cut-offs - Free People
tights - H+M
Bernice Gold heels - c/o B.a.i.t. Footwear
lipstick - MAC Absolute Power (from their LE Strength collection 


If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen some of my photos from our stay in the Hudson Valley. We rented this entire house for less than what a tiny hotel room costs around here, and it was on a beautiful, snow-covered property complete with an icy pond and deer tracks abound. I didn't spot any deer until our last day, but I got pretty excited every time I saw their little prints. We went antiquing, played with little Miku in the snow (she was born for it), and explored the general area. If you're ever looking for a nice little getaway outside of the city, I highly suggest checking it out. It ended up being exactly what we needed. I have a lot more pictures to share from our trip, including sooo many of tiny Miku having the time of her life. Turns out, we all needed a little bit of nature in our lives.

  4. I don't think the sweater is ugly at all. You styled it perfectly!! Anywho - I am definitely missing the snow, I hope we get some before spring but it's not looking good with these mild temps creeping in every other week!

  15. I grew up in the lower Hudson Valley. Definitely a beautiful place that not too many people are aware of. Actually, most of New York state really is beautiful and a sharp contrast to the five boroughs!

  23. I like your outfits with the yellow cape that your mother fished out from a dumpster so much. I hope you don't mind that I put some of these outfit pics on my blog when I did a post about capes. If you don't want to see your photos on my blog drop me a line and I will remove them immediately.
