Snow Bunny

Trying to stay warm on this grey, dreary day....

What I'm wearing:
Gap Navajo turtleneck sweater
Aerie leggings

I love window seats. As a girl I always read about my heroines lounging about on theirs and I always wished I had one. I would take a couch cushion, lay it under one of my windows, and read by the window. Now that I actually am in close proximity to a window seat, I almost never take advantage of it. All too often I just toss my coats and scarves onto it. I discovered today it in fact a lovely area of the house and I should take advantage of it more often!

This is an outfit I can see myself wearing by the fire in a lovely ski lodge, sipping on some hot cocoa with marshmallows. I am a terrible skier/snowboarder, and I actually don't really like it that much. I haven't been to the mountains in ages, and my snowboard is gathering dust in my parents' garage. BUT if I were to go someday, I would definitely pack this sweater. It is super cozy, comfortable, and looks positively alpine. Yes, it does make me look like a big shapeless blob. But I love it so. Sometimes a girl just wants to be cozy and comfortable. The best part of this sweater is the kangaroo pocket in the front. This sweater is so big I betcha I could fit a baby kangaroo in there (random fact: all baby marsupials are called 'joeys'!)

I also am loving the Sweater boots I just picked up from AE with my AE rewards $$. I love my chocolate Uggs, but thought this chestnut pair would be a good alternative. The soles on these are pretty sturdy and I can't wait to rock them this winter.

Ugg and leggings haters beware! With my aerie Rewards $$ I picked up two pairs of AWESOME leggings. You will see them soon. Very, very soon.

*Sorry for the terrible indoor photos. The rain is putting a damper onto my posts!

**ETA: Do we like the new look? I was bored today and decided I needed a new header. I actually like the way it turned out, especially without the use of photoshop. I just used the pixlr editor! I love how the new colors match the background colors of my recent ootds.


  1. the first pic is so cute! i love that little sitting corner thing! I have house envy. the sweater looks so comfy.

  2. Love the photos! I know the lighting is never as good on indoor shots but that first one by the window is catalog-worthy. :) I actually just posted about how cold weather reminds me of fair isle. I tried on a fair isle cardigan during my lunch break at F21, but it gapped weirdly at the buttons.

  3. I think those boots are WAY more flattering than Uggs! They don't look like giant marshmallows.

    Hubby and I both have the Ugg-type boots (except cheaper brands, lol) and we wear them inside or to go get the mail lol, but that's pretty much it. I'd much rather wear super cute boots, like what you have on, out and about =D

  4. Ooh, love that sweater! Have a sudden urge to go to Gap and I don't even know if that's a current season item!

  5. A Loopy Life -- the sweater is from not too long ago! here is the sweater on the gap website in a different color, the grey should still be in stores!

  6. Love the sweater! Looks so warm and cozy!


  7. The boots are super cute!!! I wish I had a window seat - they are wonderful to sit on and sip cocoa. You look absolutely wonderful, adore the sweater!!!

  8. your new boots are so cute! and i love the big cozy sweater. perfect for sitting in a little window seat on a fall day :) ~joelle

  9. The first pic looks like it's from a JCrew ad! The boots look really comfy.

  10. I love the window seat!! Awesome pic and you look great with the cozy sweater!
