Picture me in purple (and a cape)

Snow Day
As predicted, the skies dumped piles of snow over the state of Connecticut and the roads didn't get plowed until mid day, so I stayed home.
Tempting as a day in pajamas always is, I decided to get dressed instead and have an outfit to show you.
Today was supposed to be green in colored tights week, but Iris and I agreed to push it to tomorrow. I wasn't going to ignore a perfectly wonderful pair of purple sweater tights on a day like today though!!

The Cape

It also seemed like the perfect day to show off my vintage cape which was gifted to me by a family member.

I got a little creative and turned my fur collar into a hat.

On days like these I kind of wish I had a photographer. I adore getting wonderful snowy photographs, but the AF gets confused sometimes with all the falling snow - not to mention my poor camera getting wet!

Just in case you were wondering how deep the snow was...

If you had a snow day today, I hope it was a good one! And did you fall victim to any online shopping?
I'm really tempted by this cardigan at Express for $24 ($32 after shipping). Do you think it's a lust, or a must?

Oh my gosh, that dog is a sweetheart! :D

The purple tights are really pretty, especially with that scarf. Looks really cozy, too!

You look so beautiful in the snow! I love the layers. I'm pretty jealous of snow days too...

I really love this look on you, and the purple tights are really neat! I think the cardigan is a must ... I just wish you and Iris had notified me that you pushed the green tights off to tomorrow :(

Iris said...

I love the outfit I think it was perfect for the snow!

The cardi seems more like a lust item since I feel like you have similar pieces.

YAY SNOW! Sadly I had to stay inside and work, but at least I could work in my pjs! Definitely going to have to play in the snow this weekend, its at least 2 feet high, haha
I'm liking that cardigan! But I'm cheap so I wouldn't want to pay $32 on it, haha.

THIS is my FAVORITE ONE YET!!! The snow falling gently, the amazing purple and the HAT/Collar turned to HAT. Total Narnian dream, Lyddie. Love it!!

xo,

Alex Elizabeth said...

I would be your photographer... but I'm too far away. I love the way you repurposed your fur collar. I've always wanted a hat like that! Your outfit looks so comfortable and cozy! Lucky you, I felt frozen all day!

Ashley said...

I'm with you on the wish-I-had-a-photographer-sometimes thing! It was snowing yesterday when I took photos, and it was so annoying! So many of them were out of focus due to the falling snow. Oh well...at least it looks pretty!

I love what you did with your fur collar, by the way! So fun!

Rad in BK said...

We definitely didn't get that much snow. Your picture are beautiful. Way to look stunning and dramatic on your day off.
As for the cardigan, I'd say get it if you can picture it in at least 4 different outfits!

Ali said...

Need to get that iPhone app now. IT IS AMAZING. And your pictures are lovely-- I love the one of the bird house all covered in snnaaoowww! <3

Your purple tights look nice and cozy on such a cold day, especially compared to some normal ones. :D Cute cute hat, Miss Lyddiee!

Nadine2point0 said...

Looks like the weather we've had here all day! Great snow style! :)

MarchMusings said...

OMG, that snow looks serious but you look great in those colours. And your pooch is cho sweet.

Shey said...

I love how your hair looks with the snow! And the cute puppy! Also I totally thought that was a vintage fur hat! I think that cardi is a lust =) don't you already have some similar to it? If not, why don't you go to the store instead of buying online? That's what I usually do to skip the shipping.

Emily Saltzberg said...

CAPE! I just got a similar one. And I can't believe the snow up there is one lapdog high! Is your pooch part poodle perchance?

Marie said...

You look so warm and stylish!:D

I like the cape and the purple tights.:D

You saw the BCBG wrap I bought at the GW for 5.49. I think you can find a thrifted cardigan (or even a vintage sweater from an estate sale) for much less, and you'll appreciate it that much more. Anyone can shop at Express, and by the look of your glamorous outfit in these pics (and every pic for that matter), you're definitely an original with such beautiful style. I say pass, but it is lovely. : )

Sissi said...

Omg how much snow is that???!!!! :D wow, here in rome it's almost getting warmer! i am looking forward for summer, going to visit US for the first time. sooo excited!

northwest is best said...

Wowzers, I can't believe how much snow you have! And that is a perfect winter outfit. Enjoy the snow.

cathy. said...

Such a perfectly perfect winter outfit :)

Jessica said...

Why in the world do you have to make me start thinking that snow isn't that bad?! These photos are gorgeous, your outfit is perfection, puppy is darling, ... !

I still want to hate snow.

Poppy said...

Fantastic photos, I wish it snowed where I am, but alas it is the middle of summer. Crazy backwards country.

Courtney Erin said...

I'm sort of loving all the snow - and the day off yesterday wasn't terrible either! And I really like the cardigan, I think the price is good and it looks like it would be a versatile piece (I'm also from the "you can't have too many cardigans" school of thought).

What glorious snow! I love your photos and your outfit, especially the hat.

That is a fun drapy cardi - do you have anything like it already?

Kristin said...

The snow sure makes for fabulous photos...and the purple looks beautiful against it!

Jamie said...

It looks so beautiful! I love the contrast of the purple against the white snowy background and that cape is fantastic!!!

Anne said...

Your snow pictures are so pretty! It's hard to resist the temptation to sit around in my pajamas all day when I'm snowed in, so I'm super impressed with your snow day outfit! And purple sweater tights? I had no idea such a thing even existed!

daisymay aka Chantele said...

You look totally cute in that outfit! The purple tights are lovely and your cape is great. The snow looks great wish ours got that thick!

Wow..those snow photos look amazing..I really love them:) The outfit looks so cozy and beautiful
Hugs and kisses, darling

Sara said...

Oooh I love the photos! Also super cute idea to wear the fur thing as a hat! hehe

Lorena said...

YOU ARE BRAVE!
I would not have gone out there if you paid me!
Well, it actually depends on how much...
I say NO to the cardis, I am certain you do not need them.
Also Chloe does not think you need them.
SHe thinks she needs a cardi.

Anna said...

You look so great! I'm impressed you put "real" clothes on. We had a snow day recently and I lived in my pajamas for two days.

CHECKS AND SPOTS said...

Such magical shots! The pop of purple looks great against such a wintery backdrop...

Amber Blue Bird said...

Yasemin said...

Orphaned Apparel said...

Wow, that is a LOT of snow! And here I thought my yard looked deep!

Beautiful outfit and photos. Love how you converted the collar into a hat. Nice thinking!

Terri said...

Lyddie--that is some serious snow!

gypsyroxylee said...

Lady you look quite a vision in the snow! Your outfit is out of this world gorgeous! I would never have thought your "hat" was not a hat! Your doggy is super cute!

Vanessa said...

Wow, you did get blizzarded! Not a word, but I shall make you a verb, blizzard. So there, by decree! Hmm. can you tell someone has cabin fever? And it's only early January?
I am loving this bright tights challenge. I should have joined, for that's pretty much what I wore all week, too!

Mochachocolata Rita said...

OMG! How picturesque! Gorgeous!

I love snow falling photos so much. These are beautiful captures.

Obsessed with your hat.

I adore this look, the purple is what makes it. How fun to pose in all that snow! hehe and a very creative hat too.
