all buttoned up

So… what do you think of this look? Does it look good?


Becaaause, yeah, I definitely buttoned my sweater wrong at first this morning. Haha! It was too funny not to share. :) IN MY DEFENSE, it is Monday morning, and I had not yet enjoyed any coffee!

Anywho, silk dress: Simply Vera (as you can see at right, I did fix the buttons!), purple cardigan: NY & Co., boots: Bandolino. And these are the fleece-lined leggings I got at Akira yesterday. OH MY WORD, THEY ARE INCREDIBLE! Fleece-lined leggings, where have you been all my life?? Here, buy some. They may actually be worth paying full price. Otherwise stop in to a store and get them for $5. They are so toasty warm! But beware: they only come in sizes S/M and M/L, and they still run on the small side. I am 5’8″ and generally a size 10-12 on my lower half, and the M/L still required some careful pulling and tugging so that they fit properly where they should. Ladies, you know what I mean.

And here’s a close-up of the pretty jeweled neckline and a pair of faux antique gold feather dangle earrings from Target (click for larger).
