What I wore; winter uniform - The Dainty Squid

What I wore; winter uniform

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

the details:
sweater - Target
dress - Target
tights - JC Penny
nail polish - Essie Pretty Edgy with Ulta Pinata-Yada

Oversized sweaters paired with short-ish dresses are my winter uniform, not that we've had much of a winter (also, not complaining!) The pair make me feel comfortable and warm yet still like I put a little bit of effort into my looks, which in turn helps me with staying productive.

Today is my Monday, and I am excited to get back to work. Over the weekend Kevin and I did some intense thrifting then I took off work yesterday to thrift with my mom. (who adopted her first kitty yesterday! eeep!!) I found so many great things for myself and CBV (children's floral doc martens!!!) I'm just dying to start cleaning, photographing and listing everything.
Hope you have a fabulous day!
xoxo

  17. love the glitter speckle on your nails!! i live in florida and it's still not cold enough for sweaters!! we had about 3 days of a really cold front and now it's tank top weather again.

  18. Love the whole look! Also, thanks for including the nail polish, I am a nail polish addict and always looking to add to the collection. As Kristie said, Florida hasn't had much of a winter, I get so bored with the weather sometimes because it's always the same.

    Anyway, can't wait for the CBV update, I'm dying to see if the floral doc martens are in my size!

  22. Isn't it crazy how mild the winter has been so far!? Erie hasn't had hardly any lake-effect snow at all yet. Like... 1 storm. Right now the ground is bare. I'm not used to this!

    I LOVE this outfit. I keep trying to decide which part is my favorite. I love the stripes on the dress -- how they change from chevron to strait -- and the little fawn pin is TOO adorable! :)
