Poncho and skinnies

outfit 2 Blowfish Tarta Orla Kiely

You might remember a few weeks back, where I said we were going to try shooting outfits inside more often due to the onset of winter, and the related complications (cold, less light, etc.) Well, daylight slipped slowly away from us yesterday. And after a day of sleeping in and horsing around, there was no more time to take photos. So this was our first attempt at doing so inside... we set up a white sheet, and a few directional lights Matt got at Home Depot. I think they came out swell!

This outfit totally makes me feel like a grownup... perhaps it's all the neutral colors.


The outfit contains some of the awesomest scores. The poncho was thrifted, and the jeans were procured from Urban Outfitter's mega-sale for $10!! There were, however, some drawbacks... such as the fact that they're low-rise. Not my preferred fit, but I can't lie... they look great on me :) So I grabbed them.

It's crazy. Because of their 50% off sale merchandise sale in NYC stores, I've literally bought three pairs of pants from them in the last few weeks, all in the $10-$20 range. Stocked up, fo sho.

Also, Blowfish was kind enough to send me their wonderful Tarta booties, and I love them. I'm constantly on the lookout for shoes like this- the heel just high enough to give me some height, but still manageable enough for city-walking. Plus the style is so cute, with the rounded toe and buckle strap. They're basically perfect for this winter.

    1. thank you! i don't know exactly which ones he got, but i know they were cheap... like $15 or so. i actually think they're just floodlights that you would buy for your driveway. he found a way to attach them to some chairs and voila!! cheap directional lights. x

  9. All the love for this outfit! Plus you and I look for the same thing in a shoe/boot. I'd love to wear proper high heels, but seriously now, anyone who's main mode of travel is walking simply can'nae do it!

  16. Yay for awesome deals on clothes! I grabbed a few basics to add to my wardrobe on black Friday; fortunately, we managed to avoid the madness.

    Those boots look awesome and comfy! And I love ponchos! It's just it never feels the right kind of weather to wear one here! It's usually hot in spring/summer and I'm always too cold to put a poncho on in winter, hehe.

    Have a wonderful week, my friend! ;D
