See the luck I've had...


I was staring at my closet last night, trying to find inspiration but this was the only outfit I could think of. But to be honest, it is definitely my favourite outfit that I've worn in a while! The sweater is Rodarte-inspired, the skirt is a little bit Luella-inspired and the rest of it is just a hodgepodge of textures and prints. Tie dye! Woolly socks! Lions! Tigers! Bears! Oh my!

Oh, not to mention that the topknot hairdo remains in full force. I may not be an effortless Scandinavian beauty, but I sure can try real hard to look like one.

Ohh, majorly awesome! I love the top knot, so ballerina chic!

Lovely outfit, as always.
I'm so jealous of your bun. If I tried to rock the top bun look it would just end up looking like this little weird nub of hair. Not cute. Not cute at all!

I have always tried to get my hair to actually stay in a top knot, but I have never been able to master it. You seem to have accomplished the feat quite well!

oh I do wish I had the drive (or nerves) to knit a sweater! Did you make up the pattern yourself?

Rachel said...

You may deny it, but you're looking pretty damn effortless and Scandinavian to me. Still loving the snow on the ground in your outfit photos. And the topknot is sweet.

Actually, i'm getting a Proenza Schouler S/S 10 vibe from your sweater....either way, it's all good!

diane said...

You are TOO an effortless beauty! whatever.
Great outfit, your choices just get better and better.
I used to have shoes almost identical, and I LOVED them. The weird thing is, I can't remember whatever happened to them. dbl whatever.

you really suit your hair in a top knot - so feminine and chic.
Might try one myself when my hair grows a few more inches.
