Day 4 (28 + 3 + 11 + 20)

28 Black Oversized cozy sweater + 3 AA Charcol Cardigan + 11 large print floral dress + 20 high heeled docs =

Day 4 (28 + 3 + 11 + 20)

So most of the time when I am styling my outfit for a photo (you know, adjusting everything to look JUST SO), I untuck my hair from my scarf like so:

Day 4 (28 + 3 + 11 + 20)

I don't know why I do that. We all know that it's much more effective and warmer to have the hair in the scarf. Or maybe that's just me! But it is! And some scarves are itchy, and my hair is soft (just ask Reiko, she of the world's silkiest skin). In real life, I normally keep it in the scarf. Unless I'm bein' all weird about volume. I'm obsessed with volume. I have really thin hair, and everyone always wants what they haven't got.*

Are those Mocha tights not GORGEOUS? It's not a color I have ever seen made by anyone else and I just love it. I stared at my legs all day. We all have full length mirrors in our offices** and I held many a conversation with people who I am sure thought I was very vain. Staring at my legs in the mirror. But I just love the color.

Was really cold.

* Speaking of and kind of off topic, but then what is ON topic on my blog, ever? I have been using TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen for a Day Spray for a couple weeks now and I just have to say it is amazing. I don't normally use any styling products other than hairspray (and man do I love me some hairspray, I'm from Texas, y'all). But I gave this a try out of, well, being desperate for aforementioned volume. It does NOT make me have to wash my hair more often and it...DOES WHAT IT SAYS! Imagine! I'm so unaccustomed to that in a hair product! But it does. Amazing. Love it.

**What? Not every office does that? Just kidding. We used to be in cubes and we had them set up along the back in front of us behind our monitors. That way you can see fools creepin' up behind you when you have headphones on and not get startled right out of your skin. They were like 5 bucks at Target or something. But we didn't throw them away. We put them in the new offices. Cause we like to check our selves before we wreck ourselves.

Those mocha tights are unique, I have never seen that color before and who isn't searching for more colored tights! They look great with what you have on today.

A crocheted fox stole, how cool! Actually your outfit looks very cozy.

It was 9 degrees outside today when I stood for 20 minutes waiting for my train. And then the heat in the train was broken. I still can't feel my feet.

You look great, as always. I love the lace details popping out at the top and bottom of your dress.

K said...

I love the fox scarf (and the tights...and the bag...and the rest). You look great and comfortable!

LIZ said...

Um, I know exactly what you mean about adjusting yourself {i'm kinda a freak about it}. This is another great look Erin and I love the camel color of your scarf {and the cute button detail}

Laura said...

I love the idea of a layering cardigan. brilliant!

Franca said...

how adorable is that scarf!

Between Laundry Days said...

That scarf makes me unbelievably happy.

Brina said...

Every time I see your hair up / tucked in in such a way it makes it seem like it's cut to chin-length, I get super excited, it would look so so cute.

Fantastic scarf.

Rebecca said...

It took me a minute to realize that your scarf was a fox. That's fantastic!

grace said...

Those tights ARE a great color!

I get happy every time I see you in one of your little floral dress+stompy boots outfits. It makes me think mid-90s grunge, which makes me nostalgic. And you pull it off super well.

Ummm hmmmm....her hair is stroke worthy...take it from me readers!

I really heart that Fossil bag!

DUDE. my hair is thin and i am on a life long journey to find bigger hair! i feel you! i recently found that teasing just the roots a LITTLE and using a little Fat Hair (super volumizing hair spray! and adds some texture) does the trick for me! thats why im actually wearing my hair down more!

and YES i DO love those tights!!! AMAZING color!

laura said...

love love love that scarf! it makes me happy! and those mocha tights are the bomb.

Kristin said...

Love the layering of your cardi and sweater, especially with those gloves. I'm wearing my mocha tights today, actually, and I wholeheartedly agree: they're such a fantastic color.

April said...

I love your bag! And that your office has full-length mirrors :) and that we share the same flat hair problem :( UGH i want big hair, like the 80s. I'll definitely try that hairspray!

Ok, I have to try that hairspray. My hair is thin but has some wave/curl that helps but I am on a constant quest for volume. I get flat at the back of my head and it makes me craaaazy. And so much of that volumizing stuff just weighs down my hair.... ok, I've written an essay. Digging the outfit :)

Lauren said...

Way to rock some seriously awesome winter style down there in Texas :) I love the layering, the pretty floral dress, and the tough military boots - it is quintessentially an Erin outfit and I LOVE it :)

Call A Spade, A Spade! said...

I LOVE this outfit and the tights, wow. I have been looking at the mocha color on their website, but have been afraid of it looking kind of yellowish and I just didn't want to take a chance but now seeing them on you, I have already placed my order. you go girl!!!

Elissa said...

How do you manage to look so freaking cozy when it's twenty degrees outside and my eyelashes are frozen together just from a jaunt to get the mail? Seriously, how?

I'm placing my order to We Love Colors immediately. You've won me over.

Erin. . . that scarf. That scarf! My accessory basket now seems so empty and . . . in desperate need of a knit fox stole. Where did you get it?

Vanessa said...

I am the jumpiest person ever at work. I get so into what I'm working on that someone could pull a monster truck up beside me and let out banshee hollers and I would jump out of my skin!
The mocha tights are divine!

Jessica said...

That is a really pretty and unique color for tights! I am always jealous when I see the fox, he's so cheeky!

DaniellaBella said...

Mocha tights? Who knew they would be so fantastic? I love hearing about people's work places... I like to envision where you are wearing your wicked outfits!

TrophyBoutique said...

I don't begrudge you your legs-staring. Your legs deserve it. Those tights are dreamy.

And I LOVE your Doc Marten collection.

WendyB said...

We used to stick little mirrors to our computers to look out for creepers.

overcaffeinated said...

that scarf is awesome... AWESOME! It's also really awesome that your offices have full length mirrors.

Louise said...

Gimme your fox, satchel, and tights, and no one gets hurt!

I just ordered those tights, and I can't wait to get 'em! You look lovely, Erin.

Fashion Therapist said...

I would be staring at my leggs too if I had these awesome colored tights. I love this combo - I'm obsessed with florals and am having item envy right now.

I LOVE the scarf...that is so cool and unusual! BTW, you can buy rear view mirrors for your computer screen at thinkgeek.com. But since you've got the mirrors, you're good. :)

Rose said...

Oh. My god. Your scarf. Ok, ok, the rest of your outfit is super cute! But your scarf....*swoon*

I just found you through the 30 for 30, though I'm not participating this time. I love how you are formatting your outfit shoots, featuring the individual items, then putting them together. Rad!
