What I've Been Wearing

This sweatshirt was a happy surprise from my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. We had all admired the $200 one Cupcakes and Cashmere wore a couple months back, but since our budgets couldn't quite afford that one, they DIY'd one for me by adding a ruffle to a shirt from F21.

top: gift/diy (similar $77), pants: h&m (similar), shoes: diy (similar)

cardigan: target, dress: hand-me-down, necklace: diy, boots: target (similar

I picked this coat up at a new-to-me local thrift store back in August. I was ecstatic when they told me it's price was just $8.  Then about a month ago, I found Little Lady a houndstooth coat at a children's resale event. Now we can match and it brings be a shameful ridiculous amount of delight. 
The earrings are from an old friend's shop in Wicker Park. The top portion is a bullet casing - which I think is tons fun - and the lower is mixed metals, which has solidified them as my new favorites.

    1. Totally agree that $200 is too much. I like variation too much to spend that much on one piece :)
