I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Sleeping on Snow Look
This is a very boho look to me. It’s what I’d imagine someone hanging out in the artsy neighbourhood of any city, wearing to walk to the market to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Stereotypical? Maybe, but it’s darn comfortable and a very cool look.
The shrug is actually covered in gold flecks of cloth, which is hard to pick up but you can kind of see here a little better:
I made the necklace myself, out of sea stones I strung together with some gold beads, on a tiered chain, and then painted them gold.
The boots are only about 2″ high and when I bought them 8 years ago I wasn’t sure how often I’d wear them, but they are BELOVED boots. They’re a perfect, comfortable height, suede, and soft, with a nice dip down the front to show a bit of leg, while being a neutral. Literally a PERFECT boot.
I love this super soft eyelash shrug with gold flecks throughout because it’s so glamourous without being too glam, and so glam that you can’t wear it out on an everyday errand without feeling too ‘dressed up’. (Who am I kidding, I dress up all the time no matter what).
The cuff is a large, statement turquoise piece on hammered gold, which picks up the gold flecks in the shrug, and the necklace has gold flecks on it as well. The sea stone necklace also picks up colours in the shrug as well.
I also picked the booties in a neutral colour to go with the shrug and the gold, and to stop it from being so put together, I wore it with super distressed jeans, and I can just imagine painting in this outfit too, getting paint drips all over my jeans.
