You Were Warned

Here are my most recent post-Christmas steals...a $54 skirt from Urban Oufitters that I bought for FIVE DOLLARS...and a lovely white angora cardigan that I found for $10 at Old Navy (and had a gift card).

Sometimes I feel like a frog when I wear these green tights...but I just love that sage colour, it matches with so much. And I get so tired of wearing black, cream, and gray tights! Subtly-coloured tights add a totally new dimension to any outfit, I think...don't you??? Or maybe you just think I look like a frog :P

And as I warned you...that necklace is making another appearance. Told you so. I'm stuck on it!

On a totally different note, these boots are wondrously's been pouring rain all day...but I've been hopping through puddles quite comfortably :) I don't know how I could ever wear regular shoes during the Minnesota winters. Boots are just so cozy and warm and dry!

The New Deal

Finally, today settled back into a normal routine! I got to see the fiance (five days without seeing him really does a number on me) and got in some after-Christmas shopping. Aren't gift cards wonderful??? AND clearance racks???

This sweater is from Forever 21...little secret, I often buy sweaters in an XL or L even though I wear an XS. That way they have a little more Bohemian or vintage feel to them...and I love the comfort level :)

Also, I found this necklace at Old Navy (somewhere I really never shop). It was on the 75% off rack! I've been dying to have a chunky gold chain necklace for some time, and really loved the double-strand design with the smaller chains woven into the larger one. So versatile. I don't why, exactly, but I'm just really stuck on this necklace right now! So be prepared to see more of it soon...

On that note, be prepared to see the rest of my sale-rack-gift-card deals this week :D What was the best after-Christmas sale YOU found?

Wrap Me Warm...

Today I thought I would follow suit with the gorgeous and gifted Victoria at Justice Pirate...who recently posted on how she stays warm in the cold. Here are my coat buying criteria:

1--I definitely live in a cold climate (we've had record-breaking snow this December), so I have to bundle sometimes! Must have a warm, chunky this red one I bought for $8 at Express :)

2--I have TMJ, which is a condition where your jaw joint swells and/or gets locked if it gets too cold. Must have a hat that is versatile, covers my ears, and looks adorably this Target 30s-inspired black one :) Plus, it has a bow.

3--Vintage is my mantra, so I must have a coat with at least a nod to the glory this Express coat with the glamourous Old Hollywood movie-star collar :)

4--Since I walk to school year-round and often in skirts, I must have a long coat to keep my legs warm...LOVE the way this one flatters my hour-glass shape with its cinched waist and flared skirt :)

P.S. Please DO head on over to Tashrin, blog of the beautiful Trishna...she recently featured me!!! Check out the photos and my interview HERE!!!

Christmas: Part 3

Not gonna lie...I'm cheating! These pics are from the 23rd...we celebrated Christmas/my mom's birthday all on one day :) This is my darling sister and I at the tea shop having Christmas tea...

I LOVED the Wedding brew tea...and NO, NOT JUST BECAUSE I'M GETTING MARRIED. How dare you suggest it?! It was a lovely blend of mallow blossom, lavender, and vanilla.

P.s. This necklace was my special Christmas gift from the beautiful Jessica...oh my word, it's peerrrrrrrrrrrfect!!! Did you notice that it's TWO FOR TEA?!?!?! Two tea cups and a teabag charm :) I cried when she gave it to me. I'm just blessed with such awesome sister-friends.
