199. (Mellow Yellow)







Sweater and Chelsea Boots Thrifted | Skirt Dorothy Perkins | Tights Wal-Mart | Belt ASOS

Here's an outfit for today. It's chilly outside but not too chilly for me to layer myself in many layers of clothing. I bought another chunky knit sweater from the thrift shop ($5)! Can you tell that I'm obsessed with chunky knits? I've also been yearning for a yellow midi skirt since spring, and when Dorothy Perkins had this lovely skirt on sale I had to grab it quickly. One of my criticisms is that the skirt is a bit on the thin side as you can see, but it is still comfortable because of the elastic waist.



Did you also notice I cut my bangs to become blunt again? I feel like a quitter for doing so. I was growing out my bangs but I got so sick of it being in my face constantly that I went to the hairdresser across the street and chopped it off. I clearly have no self control in this regard.

I didn't dress up for Hallowe'en because I don't really celebrate it to be honest. I only like it for the candy. I guess if I had to go on a stretch I am a grandma. LOL.

Anyways, until next time everyone.

  3. I love that sweater! It looks soo cozy and comfy. I should go hunt for some new chunky sweaters...all mine have lost their shape or have become pallid in color.

    I don't celebrate Halloween either, though I wish I did, because I never say no to free candy. Maybe when I have kids later in the future I should steal their candy...mwahaha!

  5. You look so cozy and adorable! That sweater is an amazing find. I usually have good luck finding skirts and accessories at thrift stores, but very rarely do I find good tops. =)

  10. Oh I just adore this outfit, seriously you look gorgeous! I so wish I could find $5 sweaters when I go thrift shopping, that's a real find (I loove chunky knits as well). Also really loving the mustard yellow skirt - paired with the cream knit and black stockings and boots it looks perfectly balanced and totally cool weather-appropriate :) xx

  11. A girl can never have too many cozy sweaters! :)

    I think your seasonal outfit is just as fab as any Halloween costume. Since you don't celebrate, at least you don't have to go through the stress of getting a costume and everything that goes along with it. Not a bad deal. I think I would miss the excitement of the whole thing. But to each his own!
