First Day of School

It was my first day back to classes, and the weather was horrendous. I needed something cozy to brave the snow, so I threw on this sweater dress (with a VERY generous cowl) and a pair of thick woolly tights I picked up in Chicago. For a quick pop of color to pull me out of my winter blues, I dug out this bright red Birkin knockoff - it's gorgeous and big enough to carry around a few notebooks... (although, I feel bad calling it a knockoff - I bought it when I was living in Florence, and it's handmade from real leather...)

Dress: H&M
Tights: unknown - picked up in Chicago
Boots: Steve Madden
Bag: Vera Pelle, purchased in Florence


  1. adorable! the red bag really adds to the whole outfit!

  2. Wonderful outfit! It is perfect for a cold, snowy day and I love how you paired the red bag with the olive dress. Never would have thought of that combo, but I love it!! :)

    Hope your first day back went well.


  3. Fainting - consequences of seeing the bag and the belt. LOVE THEM!
