Style: December ’10

This is a pretty typical winter outfit for me. A sweater (this maternity sweater rocks, by the way), a colorful skirt with tights, knee-high boots, and big statement necklace. I’d add a cool roomy bag and an interesting ring too.

p.s. Frye boots? Expensive but worth it. I bought a pair last year and they are going to last forever.

p.p.s. I wanted to use this locket, but the shop is closed for vacation and I wasn’t sure if they’d have them in stock again when they reopen. Wouldn’t it look great with this outfit though?

    I actually purchased those exact same Frye boots about three weeks ago and LOVE them. I wore them on our trip to Germany and they are super comfy. Totally worth the investment.

    This is a cute outfit. I may recreate it this week. :)

    I have to agree about the Frye boots. I bought a pair this fall and the quality is wonderful and I have no doubt I will have them for years and years.

    My husband got me the locket for Christmas (I’m just impatiently waiting it’s arrival!!) Merry Christmas!

    I desperately wanted that locket, too, but I felt shy ordering it for myself! I don’t think my guys-guy of a husband would think to order it for me. :p

    I totally agree about the Frye boots. I bought that exact pair (in brown) a few years ago and they will truly last me forever!

    What a great look! I’m so frumpy, I wear sweatshirts and jeans mostly in the winter. I need to get with it! But yes, that closed shop with the locket–holy cow, gorgeous.

    OK, well I picked that feather duster necklace in an attempt to not show something that was unavailable, and now it’s out of stock. I should have just used the awesome locket instead!

    I love the skirt with those tights and the funky feather duster necklace. Ahh, I kinda miss winter right now… actually… no I don’t. ;)

    Very cute!!! Do you own those tights? Can you comment on how they run? I always fear that everything from anthropologie will run very small . . .

      The tights are by Hue, and I have several in different colors. They’re my favorite brand, and I’m still wearing them through my pregnancy (though they are starting to get a little snug now, but I’m getting huge).

    I love this outfit. I’ve been debating about investing in a good pair of Frye boots. I’m just so sick of things wearing out after one or two seasons!

    How do you find all that wonderful jewelry on Etsy? I can find wonderful vintage dresses easily, but jewelry always eludes me. Any tips?

    The Valhalla Brooklyn bags have been on my “lust” list for almost three years now! I think I just need to bite the bullet and buy one already.
