Wrapped

Meeting rooms are usually freezing and snuggies are not considered “business casual.” From now on, I’m bringing my blankie-in-disguise on all work trips.


Wrap, Coldwater Creek. Sweater, Laura Leigh Ltd. Dress, I Heart Ronson. Tights, I Love Colors. Boots, Rampage. Bracelets, Birch Hills.

I LOVE that wrap! And mmmmm...purple and green!
Hope you aren't snowed in!

Hannah said...

Aww, this wrap is so clever! Well, you're clever for wearing it.

Also, I just wanna say that this green and purple look fabulous together!

Okay I am completely loving the purple, and green. It looks so good together. I never would have thought it would work. You really make me look at my closet more creatively.

I love that wrap! The rich colour and the ruffles really elevate it beyond casual.

Awesome colour combination too!

Blankie in disguise FTW! Bonus points for purple (which would be perfect for my workplace ;-).

OMG - this is absolutely one of your loveliest combinations in the past three years! The blue/olive colors are sheer genious! And I could totally steal this look from you and live happily here in Minnesota until spring. Great job, read your blog daily and you are a real pip of a gal!

I almost bought this wrap last year at Coldwater Creek...seeing how great it looks on you, I wish I had not thought twice. Incredible color for your entire outfit!!

I love that wrap! I freeze at work everyday, seriously, it's so cold in my office. This so cute!

WendyB said...

Ooh! I love a lot of purple.

Londyn said...

Totally agree! I'm always freezing!!

Charlotte said...

That wrap does look cozy! I am always cold. I will have to see what I can find.

I have been in love with that wrap the first time I seen you post it a year or two ago. It looked like a rose the way you had it draped last time I remember.

As an aside, I think your longer hair style (and the red color) has been really flattering you lately even if blond is your natural color.

I love the wrap too! I am rushing to Coldwater Creek website to find one!

Fab color combination! I love clothes that feel like wearing a blanket or pajamas. It's like a comfy, chic secret.

I feel so fancy now.......I have that same wrap! I've never really known how to wear it so it's just hung in my closet. Now I know.

Rose said...

My god, woman. The things you do with color.

Its so good it ought to be illegal.

Mickey said...

Better late than never, but I really like your winter shorts. Who knew?

Rachael said...

I love that wrap! I'm knitting my own version of something sort of similar - it's a combination wrap/cape thing - so I can stop wrapping up in a fleece blanket at work. I'm not kidding; we all have "work blankets" tucked into drawers for use all winter. Not exactly fashionable.

Alex said...

Your brilliant charm never ceases to amaze me, I love the whole outfit! The bracelets, along with those gorgeous boots, accentuate it very nicely...it looks like you had fun with this one.

I had to post and tell you that our company gave us all Snuggies with the company logo! It was so cold in our office...it is funny to see people wearing them in their cubicles, though!

Love your outfit!! some of the outfits you put together I wouldn't dare have the nerve to wear. Purple and green!!! looks lovely the way u put it together. I just recently read another bloggers post where she was using the color wheel. You all have encouraged me to venture out, maybe I'll try purple and green!!! lol!!!

i love the color!! nice dress !

This must be my favorite outfit of yours lately. Not because purple, along with red, is my favorite color (and this exact shade too!) but because you actually were quite mitchy-matchy as the exact opposite to your other outfits. While I like how brave and creative you are, it somehow became more experimental than anything else, so when I saw today's outfit I almost wondered if I'm on the right page. So smooth, so eye pleasing, so rich, so beautiful.
