A Slight Exaggeration



I had big plans this morning to put my snowsuit on over my outfit and crawl through the snow to get to an old shed but (because complaining about weather is a national pastime here) it was too cold. I only got as far as the bench beside our house.

I've been wearing this outfit (but with jeans) for about 3 days now. When I really like an outfit I feel like it deserves to be worn for more than the car ride to and from work. So it gets 3 days worth of car rides to and from work! Gonna go brave the minus a bazillion out to take the dog for a jog...

bow - from when I was a kid
shirt / cardigan / skirt / scarf - thrifted
jacket - old navy
tights - ardene
boots - ebay
