A Northface jacket is kind of a requirement for living in Washington State. It’s freezing, it’s always raining, and sometimes style comes second to comfort. Luckily, my cozy Northface comes with a cute polka dot print that works well with the only pair of rain boots I have.

Also–I’m obsessed with this scarf. I bought it before Christmas, wear it almost constantly, and I’m not sick of it yet!

Outfit Details: Cardigan: Old Navy; Dress: Forever 21, gift; Tights: gift; Shoes: Payless (kid’s section).

This frilly little dress was given to me by a coworker. She was worried that I would be offended because the dress is a size large, but I told her I just wear what fits — no matter the size. When she gave it to me, I was delighted. It has a great pattern and I end up wearing it about once a week (no shame). It fits perfectly into my outfit rotation for work.

Also–I’ve been trying to teach boyfriend how to take good outfit pictures. He’s learning!

What, what? Dress posts twice in a row? I know, I’m just as surprised. However with the utterly gorgeous sunshine that has finally hit Washington state, I can’t bear to be in jeans.

As a bonus, I recently fell in love with this dress I thrifted over a year ago. I’ve worn it only once before, with a different belt. For awhile I wasn’t particularly fond of it, but when I put it this day something changed. I belted it, made the top slightly more blouse-y which had the added benefit of making the dress shorter and I went “Oh my god. I love it.”

It’s interesting how, for months, you can be ambivalent about a garment only to one day completely change your tune.
