Finally! An outfit that feels blog-worthy! I really love this combination of schoolgirl, old-fashioned, and professional. Today was such a yucky day (very cold and windy...and...I'm whispering it...snowy) that I needed something neutral and snuggly. And layers!!
Thankfully one of my friends had just given me this adorable little jumper! I was hoping I wouldn't get to wear it until fall, but alas, weather in New England is notoriously unpredictable this time of year.
I have officially put away all of my winter coats, so this little number had to do. This is only the second time I've worn it, but I really think I love it. It takes some getting used to, being a little bold and all, but turns out it is actually rather neutral.
I don't know if you can tell, but the sleeves on this blouse are great, they are sort-of peasanty. Also love the detailing on the socks...light and dark gray plaid with little velvet bows.I'm very stressed with my thesis final drafts right now, but having a cute outfit definitely perked me up today. So, with that, I'm off to bed!
