Oh cord, how I missed ye

I was parted from my camera cord for a few days, so I am doubling the trouble today.

Please excuse the odd leaning and hunching in this photo, I know not what I do.

I've got a hunch

Headband: Wal-Mart
Necklace: a gift from Mom
Denim vest: thrifted
Black cardigan: Old Navy
Dress: H&M
Deco black and gold bangle: Urban Outfitters
Black tights: Target
Boots: Target

When I left my apartment this morning, it was 48 degrees. Now it is -12 degrees with the windchill. Self-pity is comforting, but it isn't too warm.

warm colors = warm weather?

Here I am yesterday, when I was happier and less snow-stung.

Beret: flea market in Paris
Scarf: gift from Grandma
Sweater: thrifted
Skirt: thrifted
Tights: Target
Pewter pumps: Target

This outfit was slightly unusual for me, because my general instinct is to belt absolutely everything. Indeed, I am a huge advocate of the belt. I decided not to wear one because of photos like these, from Moderniteter:

See? No belts! Of course, I am aware I'm no lithe, stunning Swede. But I am one hell of a dreamer.

Yeah! You look super cute without a belt ;-) I like how you are wearing many shades of blue. I have grown to love the color (as a super girly girl used to hate it). You definitely look french (thats a good thing!) ;-)

That thrifted sweater is great, and the whole outfit looks just fine without a belt! Thanks for noticing the header, which most definitely is new. :)

Are you kidding? Before I even scrolled down and saw you call someone lithe, My though of you in the blue skirt was "damn that girl is tiny!"
You my dear are very lithe. Maybe not swedish but you know... :D
