bundle up, it’s cold outside

Jacket: Macy’s (old) (similar here, here, here

Sweater: Gap (no longer available) (similar here, w/nice details here, also herehere

Gingham Shirt: Old Navy (old) (similar here, here, here and here)

Jeans: Banana Republic (similar here on sale

Boots: Hunter (other option here)

Knee high socks: Marshalls

Bag: RM (this one is super cute) 

Scarf: H&M (old) (similar here, here, here, here)

This time of year you’ll be seeing a LOT of button up and sweater combos, a lot! That’s one way to keep warm during this lovely, at times white, season. Each time I wear a faux leather jacket I think I’m going to be cold but quite the opposite happens. Probably that’s due the material it’s made out of?! Maybe, maybe not. Or maybe it’s all just in my head! Either way works for me really.

On a brighter note, I “accidentally” came across this pretty, and the turquoise one…well I’m kinda loving, especially with an addl 25% off. Do I need it? No. Do I want it? Ummm, YES! 

As always, thanks for stopping by!

    Button ups and sweaters are my uniform in the winter. Love this look with the socks and the Hunter boots. Random question…when you use your RM bag, do you use a wallet? The bag looks too small to accommodate one, but its SO cute!-AJFitTravelerAJ.blogspot.com

      I do use my wallet, it fits just right. I can put my iPhone, lipgloss, gum, keys and that's about it 🙂 It's definitely great for those times when you don't want to carry much around.

    I love the way that scarf is done up. I've been looking for that perfect creamy large scarf but no luck so far.As far as leather jackets go, yesterday I wore my dad's large navy bomber jacket to run outside to catch the sunset, and I was surprised how warm a leather jacket can be. It is now definitely at the top of my "to buy" list!

    Love blue and gray together and you look especially cozy with that scarf.I was looking at that case yesterday for my new Ipad. If I splurged on one, it would be the Proenza Schouler case but that is totally out of the question.

    Love the gingham and the layers – everything looks so chic and cozy – you look gorgeous! I'm going to need to layer up a lot to hide the effects of all the holiday food I've been eating LOL!

    Love this whole outfit, Lily. But especially your purse!It's so clean. I've been gravitating towards clean and minimal outfits lately. Maybe it's because I'm been devouring a lot of Scandinavian street style blogs?! Anyway, I'm your 3322nd follower! 😉 I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Always love your outfits! I'm really loving the way you tied your scarf. When time permits…can you do a tutorial on tying scarves pretty please?!

      December 28, 2012 / 6:58 pm

      Thank you 🙂 My scarves always end up looking like I actually tied them a certain way lol This one I just wrapped around and tucked the ends in, but they kept falling out…so it ended up looking the way it does. 🙂

    Great look!! Did you had to size down on your boots? My hubs got them for me for Xmas and not sure how they suppose to fit.

      December 28, 2012 / 6:52 pm

      I originally went a size up, because I wear 8.5 in some cases 9. But size 9 was way too big so I got a size 8 🙂

      Haha, I know what you mean 🙂 I got mine on Cyber Monday. I'm not sure how often they go on sale. If at some point I hear about this bag going on sale, I'll share it on the blog. 🙂
