Come back to Idaho. Realize that I don't have any "spots" anymore like I have in Montana that take careful, careful consideration and many tests to prove worthy of being a blog picture taking location. My rules are generally as follows: within 2 miles of my place of residence, little to no population of people around, flat, out of the way but not far enough that I couldn't be heard screaming if someone attacked the girl wearing heels and a short dress taking pictures of herself, and did I mention isolated...? Isolation is key. I'm still not quite comfortable with a crowd watching me. So at the moment, my backyard is going to have to suffice until I put on my brave face. And also unglue my butt from the sofa for more than an hour. Right now, it's still pretty stuck there.

If you follow me on twitter or on instagram you MIGHT remember (but probably don't) me saying that the dress/sweater laying combination was the best thing I've ever worn. Maybe not for style, but certainly for comfort. Anymore, this is my go to and what I wear half the week. Any crew neck sweater layered over a dress with tights. And most usually with some scarf or pair of boots. It's seriously the comfiest outfit ever and I finally decided it was time to blog myself in this new casual uniform of mine so I can tell you that your body hasn't lived until you've tried it. Comfort at its very best.

I love your tights! And the dress/sweater combo is the utmost of comfort. Also, your dog is so pretty. I mean, obviously you are, but those eyes! So precious. Also, I love that one of your qualifications is that you need to be somewhere that people can still hear you scream. Good thinking.

I wholeheartedly agree with you that a dress + a sweater over it is the comfiest concoction ever. Ever.

Comfortable and super cute!

So cute, the tights look awesome. A bit funny for me to think of people wearing so many layers when it's a zillion degree's here in Australia.

Yeah, such an awesome/comfy winter combo. Usually I add a beret, and voila! Instant bohemian chic.

Shelby said...

I am seriously dying over those tights! You have no idea how long I have wanted a pair! I work with kids, and one of the little girls has a pair of navy blue ones with red hearts on the knees. I practically melt into a puddle of cuteness overload every time I see them.

Abbey said...

Cute puppy! You look lovely, as usual!

Sara, Swing The Day Away said...

This is so, so adorable! Love the tights, scarf, and your smile. :) It's nice that you're having a relaxing time at home - I just came home for the week, and I'm having trouble getting off the couch, too, haha.

Sweaters over dresses = THE BEST though I haven't worn it this Fall/Winter because I just can't get out of jeans long enough, but it's such a cozy and comfy and cute look! I LOVE your tights! If I actually wore skirts and dresses nowadays, I would consider getting them too, but probably not this year :) <3
