I played around with several different scarves before finally deciding on this (also furry) collar. Even though it's a different color than the hat, I think it works well in adding more texture to the entire outfit.
It's been such a long time since I busted out the red lipstick, but something about the furry accents and the bright red nail varnish called for it.

To celebrate finishing the last of my final exams, I poured myself a delicious glass of sparkling cider. Happy winter break!

I love the circular scarf trend - this one was left over on the sale racks at H&M for $5. They always remind me of the Thneeds from The Lorax...
This thing is a Thneed.
A Thneed's a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need!
It's a shirt. It's a sock. It's a glove, It's a hat.
But it has other uses. Yes, far beyond that.
You can use it for carpets. For pillows! For sheets!
Or curtains! Or covers for bicycle seats!"

You might remember this coat from last year - a thrift find for less than $10! It's really bulky, so I like to balance it out with long legged looks on the bottom.
This outfit is exactly the same as this one except for the color of the tights. It's amazing how one little detail like that can transform the look completely.
I put off taking pictures until later today to see if snow might start to fall, but it held off...until I stepped back into my house. Of course now, as I stare out the window, it's coming down as if we're in a Christmas fairytale.

This dress is probably one of my best thrift store finds ever - it's so classic and practical for chilly winter days.

Anyhoo, I've been dressing so casually lately so, even though I had no occasion, I decided to whip out this leopard print number and prance around the park taking pictures. I'd love to wear this dress to a party. I countered the short hemline (and would totally conquer the dance floor) in these cute metallic brogues.
I seemed to have ended up with some sort of '80's jungle mixture with my jewelry choices...chunky wooden earrings and a big obnoxious gold pendant. Rawr.

And here's one from a visit to the pumpkin farm...hayrides, corn mazes, good company, and, of course, pumpkins. What a lovely day. (I told you I'd get a lot of use out of this dress, didn't I?)
