Cover Girl

I was surprised to discover last night that I'm on the cover of Ink. The feature isn't about me (just zombies in general), but still ... pretty sweet, right? Thanks, Ink!
Sweater: Old Navy Men's, borrowed from boyfriend // Button-up: Vintage, thrifted, $1 // Jacket: Vintage, thrifted, $12 // Jeans: Tilt, TJMaxx, $18 // Shoes: Patricia Field for Payless

Here's what I wore for a casual Friday of running errands. Don't get me wrong, I love to get dolled up as much as the next girl, but I tend to feel my best in outfits like this: thought-out but comfortable, laidback and involving denim. Maybe it's the Kansas girl in me. Oh, and I'm allowed to wear three different types of plaid, right? That was a rhetorical question. You don't have to answer.

Congrats on the cover! That is awesome. :)

p.s. I am interested to see how you manage to stay stylish during our winters. I find that I always struggle once the temperatures drop below 40 and the winds pick up. Ug...I hate the winds!

I adore this outfit! Definitely one of my favorites. You look so comfy and laid back, with the perfect amount of plaid and masculinity mixed in (in a good way - it feels delightfully androgynous). Congrats on the cover!

Love the mixed plaid! I'm so lacking inspiration this morning... it's icky & rainy out, but I think a good pile of plaid might make me feel better!

Thanks to all of you for the kind words!

Victoria -

Kansas winter definitely poses a fashion challenge! I struggle too. Hopefully I'll think of some creative solutions to share with everyone!

I'm glad you like the shoes! They are actually from last season.

I absolutely love the combination of plaids you used here. That jacket fits you so well. Is it thrift-ed? Wow. Also love how you paired the agile sweater into it as well. Fabulous job!
