outfit of the day: something warm

First things first – my wonderful BBF Sarah of Coming Unstitched is on her honeymoon this week and kindly let me write a guest post! You can read all about my Fashion Bucket List – and why you should treat yourself to that expensive item you’ve been wishing for.

I’m not going to lie – my outfit choices these days are made by answering one question: “How warm will I be?” Seriously, that first leg out of bed in the morning is the worst. During the dead of winter, I keep my Uggs next to my bed so I can go immediately from warm covers to warm boots. Don’t judge – it’s the next best thing to installing a coffemaker in my bedroom (which I’ve seriously considered doing).

  1. I totally had my coffee maker on my night stand in college! It was awesome, you should try it.

    Love the bright mustard against the black!

  2. Haha I feel the same way about getting out of bed in winter…I bought a space heater for the sole purpose of warming the bedside! This outfit is one of my favorites on you! I am a serious faux fur lover, and you already know how I feel about stripes. Love this!

  3. Thank goodness, someone else who actually considers installing the coffee maker in their bedroom! I really am tempted… it’d probably be one of the only things getting me out of bed on a cold winter morning!

    Love the vest. And those shoes? fantastic

  4. Uggs by the bed is GEEEEEENIUS. And now I’m off to find myself a fur vest :)

  5. I absolutely love mustard…my bed is actually a similar color to your skirt! I’m glad you paired it with black too, I feel like people are always afraid to do that. It can look so chic!

  6. Shirt and skirt: love. Vest and shoes: LOVE.



  7. Love that you chose the teal belt!

  8. I love everything about this outfit! So cute. I tend to be scared of vests (I don’t know why), but I may have to try one on this year. And I totally feel you on the Uggs near the bed. Our wood floors are in bad shape and they get really cold, so I always try to keep some warm slippers or something nearby so I don’t have to walk on them much.
