snow day!!!

first real snow day of the season! it looks like we'll be getting at least 3 inches today. i certainly hope businesses are open, i've got a ton of errands to run.

i love this wool onesie! i've been wanting one but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it because it's such a specific look. i found this one on sale at intermixonline.com, and you can take an extra 40% off the sale price with code "sale40" (note that it is final sale.) it's a fine merino wool, not at all itchy or cheap-looking, and it is so comfortable. i can't wait to play around with it (i'll be checking out alexander wang's fall looks for some ideas), but for now here's how i'm wearing it - nothing like piling on a bunch of cosy layers when it's snowing out!

  1. *laughs* Three inches and businesses potentially close down? Really?

    You're amazing, by the way. I totally don't think that onesie looks ridiculous at all, and I wouldn't have thought it would be possible to wear a onesie, as a serious outfit, without it looking ridiculous. I quite like the outfit, actually.

    my mom got a pair of hunter boots like yours for dirt cheap, i mean less than $20, from some kinda of sale at jcpenny's of all places! i wish she had told me because i would have bought a pair too.

  4. omg...that ombre is amazing..

    Last night I was debating I wear my rainboots but I wanted to wear heels! Later on I deeply regretted that decision lol.

  5. priscilla: i recommend taking your regular size. it was a little snugger than i wanted when i first tried it on out of the box, but it stretched out a little so it's a little roomier now. if you want a slouchier look you can always size up. there's not a lot of extra material to bunch over a belt. hope that helps!
