I wore this today to the aquarium at the mall with my very crabby two-year-old.
This is the epitome of what I have been wearing this winter. Boots? Check. Ambiguous tunic/dress type of dealy-do? Check. Wool sweater and a jaunty cap? Check and check. Belt optional.
I'm in love with this hat that I found in Austin while visiting my awesome friend Rudy. It looked good on both of us, but he graciously allowed me to purchase it. I usually don't like caps, but this one has the cutest little brim:
The dress/tunic (it has pockets!) is a color that I always am drawn to, but feel like it washes me out, especially in winter, so I like to pair it with darker colors. I am quite fond of finding ways to wear colors that are not "good" on me. How about you? Do you like to be "bad" and wear another season's colors?
