SURELY, SHEARLING. While everyone else is glued to the tube watching the Golden Globes, I'm huddling inside as close to the heater as possible, sorting out my final college semester schedule. 2012 has been a great start for me so far, and my first 24 hours back at the
North Pole St. Louis have been productive, try-new-things-fun, and bloody COLD. Going from 80 degrees to a sharp dunk into snow-covered 30s is not pleasant, and riding my rickety bike uphill on a particularly windy day is even less pleasant. Either way, it's nice to be a busy bee again.
This is an old pre-break school outfit (11/28): SHEARLING + TURTLENECK. Can't even remember what I was doing that day but it was right after Thanksgiving. This jacket was $10 on sale in the spring and my homage to the raging shearling trend last year. Layered with a cropped turtleneck sweater, it's pretty warm. Nothing to write home about. While it's nice to dream fantastically and imagine myself swathed in light chiffon and bohemian layers, true winter necessitates warmth so hopefully this is the year when miraculously I learn how to layer without looking like a mid-hibernation bear.
You remember my previous giveaway sponsor, Unestablish, right? They're introducing an Australian line into its store: Finders Keepers. They have romantic neutral light grey, cream, black tones with a nice spring coral thrown in. I also see interesting cutouts. Check it out here. (Image credit: Unestablish)
