Last week, the temperature got high enough in the afternoon to completely ditch the coat and tights. I took that opportunity and ran with it. It lasted for all of two hours before I went home and put on pajama pants and socks, but it was a lovely couple of hours nonetheless. I do think I’ll wear opaque tights with this skirt next time; I was a little afraid my bum might make a guest appearance (luckily, it did not).

I’m afraid today will require a coat and scarf, which is unfortunate because it’s difficult to thrift and shop with excess layers. That’s my plan for today – thrifting and a little Christmas shopping. To prepare, I woke up extraordinarily early for a Sunday morning and ate a slice of pumpkin pie for breakfast. Being an adult has its perks.

p.s. Little puppy returns!

    This outfit looks so perfectly effortless!

    I plan on doing some vintage shopping pretty quick too. SO much fun (if you're in the mood for it).

    I never attempted vintage or thrift shopping in NY the few times i've been there but I think that'll be my goal for my next trip.

    I love how you always manage to look so feminine, even in a tougher look! Love the skirt and the booties!

  16. Penny Dreadful says: November 28, 20104:52 pm

    Great combination, love both the skirt and tee. I'm amazed it was warm enough to go with bare legs, I've been wearing tights for well over a month in London!

  17. MJ says: November 28, 20105:24 pm

    I'm freezing just to look at you. But that's just because here in Sweden there is like 1 metre snow now … Take care!

  25. Gudrun and Iris says: November 28, 20107:15 pm

    very cute, very natural and your eyeliner mesmerizes me – mine always looks like an 8year old tried to put it on 🙂

    Your skirt is fabulous!



  37. Kate says: November 29, 201012:06 am

    Haha, I tried on this skirt, and was also afraid that my bum might show! And it's also so funny to see how different the weather is right now across the blogosphere… I laughed when I saw you with bare legs and a teeshirt, as I'm shivering underneath a wool coat, gloves & boots, and there is already lots of snow on the ground!

  38. Rebecca from See You in Sweden says: November 29, 20101:10 am

    cheeky cute skirt!

  39. libys11 says: November 29, 20102:03 am

    so jealous of the nice weather!!! 😀 you look quite edgy there! love it!

  40. Sophi says: November 29, 20105:09 am

    Aaaah I live in constant fear of bum exposure when I wear bodycon things. It is funny how annoying it is to wear layers while thrifting. I forget sometimes and do something silly like wear 9 eyelet boots with socks, tights, a slip, a dress, and a cardi. At that point I have to be pretty much set on buying something to try it on 😛

  41. Leah says: November 29, 201012:02 pm

    Love your bag, the colour is amazing !

  42. Angsthase says: November 29, 201012:43 pm

    Warm enough for no tights? HOLY TAMOLY!
    I'm sitting in bed IN A COAT AND SCARF. How ridiculous of the weather. Well… enjoyably ridiculous for me, not so much for me.

  43. Ashley says: November 29, 20104:27 pm

    love your blog and your oufit!! xoxo
    followng you! follow mw back!!

    gorgeous casual outfit! i agree that being an adult does have its perks! i've eaten too many things for breakfast that my mom probably would've disapproved of. 🙂

  45. supadupavintage says: November 29, 20106:37 pm

    thanks so much for wearing our tee doll! you look amazing and love the outfit! xoxox

  46. A.Co says: November 29, 20107:43 pm

    Pumpkin pie! Breakfast! YES! YES! YES! hehe.

    I've been trying to shred my own shirt but it's sooo time consuming. It takes forever – have you ever done one?

    Isn't it soo nice when the weather surprises us… in a good way? 😉

    Haha … it's snowing here in Germany and you can go out with a mini-skirt .. amazing 🙂

  49. Lidi says: November 30, 201012:54 am

    Okay, I know this sounds creepy, but I'm more obsessed with that puppy that anything else in this post! I love his second "surprise" appearance. He is so cute! I think you said his owner ties him while she sweeps outside? Whatever it is, I hope he is well taken care of. He looks a little scruffy…I just want to bathe him and get him all soft and fluffy for some cuddling time! Okay, I'll stop typing now before this post gets any creepier, lol.
