what i wear when it's 13 degrees outside.

okay, so in all fairness, 13 degrees wasn't the high, nor was it 13 degrees when i left the house this morning, but 13 degrees is still cold, and that was the temperature when i got up this morning. it was in the mid 20's when i left, and the high today is somewhere in the 30's, so the point is: i had to dress warm! remember the last wishlist wednesday post i did with the vintage fur collars? well, guess what friends, i got one! it smells like an old lady (from an old lady), and febreeze (from me), but i still love it. yep, $2.99 on ebay for a vintage faux fur collar. i'd say it's a deal. so of course you can guess what i wore today...

faux fur collar: ebay, coat: forever 21, dress: old navy, leggings: forever 21, shoes: some off brand.

oh, and that last picture is what happens to my hair when i wear it in a bun. i think it's too long and too heavy to just use one extra big hair pin, but i really don't feel like taking the time to pin a dozen of those things in, because it means i have to take that much time pulling them out. yes, i am lazy when it comes to hair (don't hate me, brandi).

i got that coat last november in san francisco. it was really nice, even kind of hot, during the day, but once the sun started to go down, my sweater just wasn't enough, so i stopped in forever 21 to get that real quick before we got on the cable car. i'd say it was my favorite purchase, because it's the only coat i've worn since then! the shoes i love. love love. you know how there are things that you can't decide whether they're ugly or cute? such is the case with these shoes. i've pulled them out of my closet for some wear time, and the more i look at them, the more i'm thinking that i love how they're a combination of oxford and bootie. they're some off brand that i got a while back for $5 or $6, so if i don't wear them too often, at least i don't have to feel guilty for spending much money on them!

what are you wearing now that the weather has gotten cooler?

  2. No socks? Eeek. I like big, wool socks for the cold days. And of course my very silly hat: http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Accessories/Hats/Brown-Fur-Viking-Hat-122067.jsp

    Stay warm!

  4. I love the shot of your feet but we have snow here and I can't even imagine heading out without several pairs of socks on. Pretty collar - a great find

  5. I gotta tell you, while that ourift is cute it's waaaaaay too skimpy to wear around here right now :) We've got 5 or 6 inches of snow on the ground and are getting more tonight. And yesterday with the wind chill it felt like it was 9 and it's colder today!
    But I do really love your coat & fur collar :)

  6. Cute coat! I'm jealous of your shoes, actually. If only I could go around in cute shoes in this weather!

  7. Those shoes are definitely all love for me. I feel the same way about a crocheted cotton vest that I wear sometime. Ugly/awesome. It's the way to go!

  12. I LOVE this outfit and the collar with the oxford booties (I LOVE those shoes esp!!!) i wish i could pull off the messy hair bun, but alas...

    i'm wearing tights with everything (though i really want to give in to the whole "jeggins"), my sequined heart gloves, and a crocheted scarf a blogfriend just sent :)

    but man oh man it's FREEZING here!

  13. So....I really appreciate fur in theory...but I just feel like it's not usually done in a way that is all that werable and it usually ends up looking costumey.

    BUT...you totally rocked this! I adore that fur collar and it's so perfect with the coat!

    you are cute cute cute!

  14. LOVE the outfit! You found a great deal on that faux fur. I love ebay for really good deals! As for the shoes - adorable! I still have a pair of mens small loafer/moccassin, cute in a very ugly sort of way shoes that I bought from goodwill over ten years ago. I love them and wear them all the time. As for what I'm wearing in the cold - same thing I've been wearing for the past four years - whatever I can nurse comfortably in! LOL

  18. My gosh, if you're going to insist on dressing this impeccably I shall have to visit your blog again!!
    In Australia (you know, that place as big as the US that everyone forgets about :P), it's summer so I'm starting to wear tees and shorts again, and I'm planning on making a few pretty dresses and skirts too out of digital print fabric.
    However when winter rolls around I have some lovely wide leg pants planned that I scored 2 for $15 down from $60 each.
