Ohhhh sweaters over collars, my favourite thing about cold weather. This sweater and blouse are two recent thrifts I didn't think about wearing together when I got them, but they work nicely together.
Thinking about different ways to show off my layers on my sleeves. I'm tired of cuffing my blouses over my sweaters because it usually results in a stretched-out mess. I'm kind of imitating a Joe Fresh promotional image I saw, with a buttoned cuff peeking out from under a sweater... but of course I can't find that image anymore, whoops.
I also thrifted a coat. All my wintery coats are flashy in some way and I wanted something more understated. This is just a plain boring black coat with a hood. It's relatively new and came with horrible, horrible plastic buttons. It seems like most new clothes I find have the WORST quality buttons. Luckily, after spending a couple dollars on some new buttons from Fabricville I don't have to worry about them anymore. This coat actually has an invisible placket so you can't even see them when I'm all bundled up, but I like knowing they're there.
