Alpine


When I put on this outfit Josh said, "You look like you're going to go hiking in the Alps." I knew what he meant. Although this outfit would be entirely impractical for hiking, it does kind of look like something a woman from the 1940's would have worn at an Alpine ski lodge. ("Kind of" being the operative phrase there - I have a feeling women from the 1940's didn't embrace the dorkiness that is slouchy socks worn with tights, or blazers with sleeves that aren't long enough. But I bet they would have worn skirts like this one - and that may just be where the similarities end.)



Turtleneck: Kohl's
Skirt: Vintage, from an antique show
Blazer: thrifted
Hat: from my dad, from a hat shop in York, England
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Belt: thrifted from Goodwill
Tights: Forever 21
Socks: Gap
Boots: Crossroads Trading Co.

  1. Perfectly matching outfit from head to toe. Nice shots also. One of the few sunny days in your place, right?

  2. never mind the too short sleeves - the seaming on that blazer is amazingly perfect.

  5. This is the absolute perfect fall outfit. I love your cute derby hat and the socks/tights combo is something that I have been obsessing over (in fact, my post yesterday had tights and socks . . . ). I love all the colors, textures and patterns in this outfit. Very ski lodge chic!

  11. So the sleeves of the blazer may be a tad short. Who cares? You look amazing. You don't look like your going hiking but a ski lodge or √Ępre ski club for sure. I find the ensem fabulous.
    Cheers,
