These Automatic Flowers.

This is what I wore out last night after work. I am please to announce that I have finally acquired boots that are the exact color I've been looking for since August. Other than that, I dressed to keep warm because it was freezing and extremely windy last night. The cardigan I wore is the softest, warmest thing ever. It's roomy, slouchy, and works with the shape of my skirt! And to think I originally bought it only because it was $10 and I couldn't say no.


Some lovely plastic Christmas flowers.

This skirt looks eerily similar to my other black, high-waisted, button-down skirt from H&M (the one with the suspenders). They sure know how to beat a trend to death.

In case you can't tell, I'm becoming more comfortable in front of a camera.

Only posting this because of my face.

You wouldn't believe how comfy I was.

I'd prefer real cable knit to this silly fake look, but I'll take what I can get. I was so worried about crushing those pleats.

Buckles make me so happy. These boots are clicky when I walk, I think they have a little hidden heel action going on. They're pretty warm for fake leather, too.

K.B. - Thanks! I think they're pretty sweet myself.

Toni - It's all one piece - I wish I was that good at skirt layering!! It's always a lucky find when something gives you a 2-in-1 look.

Rissa - Thanks! I'm actually jealous that you're having summer weather, although I feel a little more inspired to dress up for winter weather. :)

Sam - Thank you!!!! <3
