Winter Uniform

Coat- Old Navy (major clearance!), Sweater- Target (similar), Button-Up- Old Navy (major clearance!), Jeans- c/o Aeropostale
Boots- Sole Society (on sale $36), Bag- Michael Kors, Necklace- Shop Lately ($10 off first order when you sign up with Facebook)

I posted last week about how I am not going to be doing daily outfit posts anymore. But when I get the chance to shoot an outfit I'm already wearing that day, why not? This was my casual Friday outfit from last week. I dragged my somewhat reluctant boyfriend out to take some shots of me before I changed for dinner that night- didn't he do a good job? This was his first time using a DSLR camera and I think they turned out great. And now that I know he can take successful photos for me, that means more outfit posts for you! Yay!

This outfit is a good representation of what I've been wearing since my last outfit post- any variation of the sweater/button-up combo you can imagine, paired with skinny jeans and boots. Layering is just so much fun, and of course it's functional for cold weather. I liked this combo of leopard and plaid since its more playful that wearing two solid pieces. These boots have been on my feet pretty much from the time I got them in the mail until now. They are extremely comfortable for everyday wear, despite the heel!

What's your winter uniform?

  1. I'm glad to hear (and see) that we'll still get outfit posts here from time to time. :) I am tempted to join instagram just to be able to see your outfits! I totally understand your reasons for making the changes and decisions you made, and I admire you for following the path that makes the most sense for you. -Gina

  2. Yes, this is what I typically do as well! Make the husband take pictures of the outfits I'm already wearing. Your BF def did a great job! And I love this! The subtle pattern mixing and pop of color! I would wear this in its entirety!

  3. Love this outfit! This is pretty much what I wear everyday too. I'm still a little scared of an overall animal print on a piece so large as a sweater but you're inspiring me to try!

  4. Thanks Gina! I think i'll probably be posting more outfits than I originally thought. As soon as I decided I didn't want to do them, I missed it! And you should totally join Instagram...its so much fun! Though it gets very addicting :)

  5. Thanks Carylee! We just took our second round of outfit photos yesterday and he did a great job with those too! He doesn't like doing it very much, but I think he's a little bit prouder of the end result than he lets on :)

  6. Thanks Jacquelyn! You should totally go for it with animal print! I find it so much easier to mix and match than you would think if you pick a print with all neutral colors :)

  18. Yay, more photos! :)
    I'm currently living in sweatpants, hoddie and a fluffy hat because it's about 28 degrees and snowing here, and I am studying for finals ;)
