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


  1. Such a beautiful scarf and I love the bow on you too :) Definitely bears repeating!

  2. It is nice to know that people wear the same outfit multiple times during a week, which is what I do too. hehe. looks cute too!!!!

  3. I find both your style and photography, so inspirational. I adore this outfit and I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who likes to wear an outfit over and over again! xx veronika

  4. i love the bow and scarf many pretty colors! :)
    when i find a outfit i enjoy i wear MANY are not alone.
    stay warm...would you hate me if i told you it was 60 degrees here today..!?! haha..

  5. the bow is SO adorable! love it. :) and your scarf reminds me of spring - it's right around the corner isn't it?

    so cute. i love the second photo. hope your week is going well!


  6. Bitching about the weather is definatly a national pastime here! I love the cardigan, and that scarf is sooo prettyu. Such gorgeous colours :)
    You are brave for going out to jog the dog. I barely want to go outside to feed the fat (rabbit).

  7. So many perfect little details make up this outfit- the floral pattern on the scarf, the polka dotted bow, the lace, your pretty mittens- LOVE! Your hair looks SO awesome too.

    Oh and it's minus a bazillion here too so you're not alone. i want spring so bad.

  8. HAHAHAHA national pastime. Brilliant.

    This is one of my favorite outfits of yours, Shy!! The scarf!!!!!!

  9. Oh, you're just the cutest! I love your bow and scarf :)

  10. The print on your scarf is lovely! And the bow is cute too :p And you're definitely not the only one to re-wear something, it's such a shame not to when it's something so nice! xx

  11. Aw, I love that you're wearing a bow from childhood, that's adorable! And I love that scarf-- good thrifting!


  12. hey shey-ana! and no you're not "in trouble" ;)

    i saw your entry on joe fresh's tumblr - too cute! was on it b/c i was going to send in my own submission today but didn't realize all the other stylish/rad, from canada too! that were there as well.

    love your snowy goodness photos and that snow picnic (i was on a stroll and saw it on a previous post) is such a clever idea. way to brave a cold bum for fun times! very pretty outfit lades, the bright scarf is beauteous and your bow (from childhood - cool) is darling!

  14. I love the print on your scarf and the bow in your hair, so fun!

  15. your photos are always so so beautiful and i totally wear the same outfit over and over and over maybe changing one or two things, i think you definitely need a good staple outfit to turn to!!
