Oh no, bros! It was snowing when these photos were taken, so I apologize in advance for the specks of white on my person. Hehe. If I had a nicer camera lens, I could have done some fancy shmancy effects, but oh well. >_< You'll see later on, but I'm wearing high waist shorts. Shorts in the winter? I know, f*cking crazy, right? Of course, you should know by now that I don't care about such things. I just do whatever I want. ;P Also, these denim bad boys are for sale, so I wanted to show off the fact that they can be styled for year round enjoyment! But first, let's start with what we can actually see, yeah?
On the whole, this outfit is very simple. I've got a patterned sweater tucked into my shorts and over that is a basic, but cozy oversized cardigan. I'm also sporting my new snowflake tights from Chicwish and some other basic accessories. The exciting bits are the splashes of bright color, textures and seasonal patterns. Oh and did I mention that two of the items I'm wearing are from my XMAS wish lists? Aww, yeah! Someone got lucky this year! Click here and here to see my lists of covetousness.
Also, can I just say that thermals are your friend. Seriously. Hehe. Underneath my sweater, I wore a thermal long sleeved top and then I layered another soft long sleeved top over that. You can't tell, but underneath my tights, I'm wearing thin thermal pants. The temperature was in the 30s also, so I felt great. That's the funny thing about when it snows. It's usually more temperate than when it's not snowing. Oh and that vent behind me was belting out hot steam, which I obviously didn't mind. :D
The black and white sweater is ModCloth's Black Box Theater Sweater. It's fantastic and I just had to have it as soon as I saw it. It's solid black in the back, by the way. You'll see what I mean in the side shot below. Beautiful design! The brand of the high waist denim shorts is 2.1 Denim and the size is 24. Much too small for me! The shorts can barely contain my hips. Hence they are for sale! I'm normally a size 27/28 in denim. Ugh. I love these shorts, too. They look so vintage. Click here for measurements!
I'm so happy to finally have an opportunity to wear these tights. I treated myself to them last XMAS. ^_^
The beautiful boots are from ModCloth. I snagged them during their Black Friday Sale. They're called the Buckle Downtown Bootie in Whiskey on the site and they sold out like hot cakes! O_o o_O
The spiked handbag is from ModCloth, also. It's called the Bright Companion Bag and it was available for 50% off during ModCloth's Treat Yourself Sale, but I ended up getting it as an XMAS gift from my mom. Thanks, mom! :3 She knows what I likes. <3 I wanted a blue bag forever! Very happy!
I hope you all had a wonderful XMAS! Did you get anything fun? ;D
