Silver Bells and Cockle Shells


My New Years resolution? To get up, go out, and start fashion blogging again. Since my last post I have moved to an old New England seacoast town, and started a modest new life with my boyfriend of over four years, Bretton. While it's no Edinburgh, I think the setting is more than pretty enough to be deemed 'chimerical.' So, here is my first outfit post of the new year, with many more to follow. I'm super excited to dive back into this. Not only was this blog good for my fashion sense and my confidence, but it was a wonderful way to chronicle my little adventures.

I'm absolutely obsessed with my new sweater dress. It's remarkably comfortable (I hate when sweaters are itchy), and surprisingly flattering (I have to be honest...I usually feel like sweaters add bulk and frump in all the wrong places). While it does require a waist belt for some shape, it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. The tights and flannel are from target (gotta love it), and these stunning earrings were a Christmas gift from my dear friend, Mysterious Cat.













Dress: Nordstrom; Flannel/tights: Target; Brogues: Office Shoes; Backpack: UO; Belt: F21 (only $2!); Scarf/earrings: various presents

I love the worn-in look of your shoes. Does your place look like those houses in the background because I WANT TO LIVE THERE.
