*listening to Bat For Lashes Fur and Gold "Prescilla"

It's been so cold here (and everywhere it seems) that I'm usually bundled up like an Eskimo just to step outside. I'm still sort of enjoying the cold weather, I just don't like being cold. There's a difference! My favorite thing to wear on these days is my Maine fisherman sweater. At least that's what I call it. It reminds me of those sweaters that you see lobster fisherman wearing as they bring in their daily catches. Hmmm... I just checked the label and it says "Handmade: Kennebunkport". Ah ha! So I wasn't just making it up after all.

those boots are amazing and you paired them up with your outfit in a way i never would have thought to!

amanda lee said...

I love that those boots have a bit of a heel. I'm looking for some warm snow boots like that--I wear heels so often that when I'm forced to wear flats (like boots), I feel off balance!

ZombieLace said...

Those boots are killing me I love them so much.

Amelia said...

I love the texture of the sweater!

Thanks for all of your comments!

anja louise: Thanks again for sending me the purse. I really love it!

amanda lee: I usually wear flats so I was afraid the heels on these boots would make me fall but they're actually super comfy.

eyeliah: Ha! It's called "I need a haircut!"

sasha said...

this outfit is so cozy looking. I'm envious, it's so warm here I'm wearing my summer clothes!

Alice said...

I know someone who lives in Kennebunk.

Where do you live that it is so cold?

I know they're impractical, but I like over-long bangs.

This is a lovely and practical outfit, I just wish I could see all of it! Your blog pictures are always cut off to the right. :(


blessings,
Alice

Great outfit! You really have a way of putting things together. Those are cool boots, I've seen something like them in black, but I've never seen anyone wearing this style. They look great!

Love those boots! Snow boots areusually so ugly but yours are so classy!
Also, I like a lot that you're including your "currently listening infos" in each post lately: I can't help but search for every song I didn't know!
