wear: when it's 11 degrees...

though we've been blessed with amazing weather this fall/winter, a few days ago the temperatures dropped into the "normal" range and it was freeeeezing.*
i had plans to go to this opening with some friends and was dreading the thought of possibly standing outside in the 11-degree weather while we waited to get in. rather than back out completely, i just layered up and was actually able to stay fairly warm. (luckily we did not have to wait in line after all...)

i snagged this little hobo clutch on super-sale the other day and it's perfect for nights when you just need the necessities: phone, id, chapstick, debit card.
this wool sweater dress may look a little bulky with a long-sleeved shirt underneath, but fingers-crossed it was dark enough that nobody noticed the extra padding.
dress: j.crew (old)
belt: old navy
tights: target (?)
booties: mia via dsw
clutch: hobo via von maur
watch: timex via target
bracelet: f21

*midwesterners loooove talking about the weather. it's the one thing you always have in common with anyone you meet!

  3. Your hair is really leaving me pretty speechless these days. Gorgeous. Especially with the black turtleneck. Very 1970s Ivy League.
