Keep it simple

Sometimes I forget it is often the simplest outfits that work the best. This one was brought upon simply due to the fact that is was freezing cold out. I mean, really, bitter cold. The furry cowl was pretty much the starting point; the possibly cashmere (but who the hell knows because there are absolutely no tags) thrifted sweater was next to it in the drawer and looked good. Heavy denim, boots with thick socks, my new mustard clutch for a pop of color, and one perfect Sunday outfit comes to life in just under five minutes (not counting the prior 45 minutes I spent on Pinterest searching for 'winter style' and getting frustrated).

Camel always looks stylish, and sometimes being warm is top priority.

Oh i love this outfit! and I love the concept of your blog, I'm a new follower!
Perhaps you have some time to check out my little blog too! I'm also not spending very much money on fashion - I think desinger things are not better than "normal" brands, and it must be possible to dress stylish for all events with a "normal" budget!

Purple and blue are a wonderful idea. Now on to my closet to look for something purple, something blue! BTW, I agree that sometimes we lost sight of how the simplest thing is the funnest. Your outfit is casual but warm and classy and the clutch and nail polish add air of sophistication to it. stay warm x

I agree. sometimes simple is the best!

Love that scarf. I have something similar, but I won't wear it b/c I look so overwhelmed by it. I think it's b/c my hair is only a little past my chin. Your long hair balances it beautifully. :)

My outfits are usually very simple with a hint of something different. I like to stick with the basics, but I always make the basics my own. I think you look great in this outfit.

Madeline Quaint said...

I love it when you wear something simple but still make it shine with the best accessories!

Anne said...

That furry cowl looks so warm and cozy! And I love the yellow bag - it's some much-needed brightness in such a dark season.

Loren said...

This looks warm & comfy & wonderful. We had a cold snap here this weekend too. But instead of bundling up, I chickened out and didn't take any pictures. ;) I should have put on something adorable like this instead.

Amber said...

oh man did you take this on Sunday? It was soo cold! You are one brave lady.

haha outfit frustration is the worst! I hate those days when you spend like an hour in your closet and nothing works. Awful.

But this is, of course, not awful. You look so sophisticated and I just love that furry cowl-- it looks so waaarm!

chillairandperfume said...

You've single-handedly convinced me I need a faux-fur cowl! Love it and the rest of your 70s-ish outfit.

Alex Elizabeth said...

You have a new place for photos!... where is it? This huge cowl is awesome. Still love the yellow bag. I was in ZARA and they didn't have any more (at least in that store) so it's good you picked it up!

Bravoe Runway said...

I love this, the fur collar adds a gorgeous touch to the whole outfit :)

Laura Go said...

Lyddie, I'd love to have that cowl. It's simply gorgeous and adds so much texture to the whole look!

Your clutch... makes it all happen. Love it. fun blog - I just randomly found it! I'm a bargain shopper too (mostly second hand stores) and love it when I find something fabulous! I just found a vintage Coach messenger bag at a thrift store for $3. Incredible. I'm a new follower!
