Even the Trees Need Sweaters...


Cardigan & Dress- Anthropologie
Necklace-Vintage
Belt-Target  Flats- Payless




First outfit post of 2012! Woooo.

This is probably my favorite outfit I have put together in a long time. I felt so comfy and ladylike in it, esp. considering the perfect knee length cut of this dress. I saw the dress in Anthro's display window a few months back, ran to it with open arms and then proceeded to sob when I looked at the price tag. You know, my usual response to items when browsing in that heavenly store.

A few days after Christmas I wanted to do a little shopping, hoping to score some sweet deals. Well, I did...this dress...for only $50. O.m.g. So happy. From the pretty marigold yellow color, soft wool fabric, and amazing chain link cable knit, I am totally in love. I paired it with my fav. cardigan (which for some weird reason has never made an appearance on here before), braided belt, and lovely vintage necklace my brother and sister-in-law got me for my Birthday.


Also, trees in sweaters!! Isn't that the coolest thing ever?! These cute hand knitted guys have been popping up all over the Seattle area, and I was sooo happy to finally spot a few after hearing so much about them. So fun! :)






P.S. While taking these photos some dude on a bike yelled at me, "I like your style!!" hahahha If only he knew that I was taking those photos for my wee little blog......first time that ever happened. After the fact, we both wished that Tim would have yelled back "Thanks!" lol :)


Hope you are all enjoying the first few days of the new year!

  29. That is hilarious, hahahah! I can only imagine how you reacted to someone screaming at you from the street about your outfit. That would just make my day.
    Those trees? In sweaters? Oh my GOD. How cute is that! I haven't seen anything like that before but it's adorable.
    Lizzie, the third picture down, your close up, is absolutely stunning. You have the prettiest smile.
