Many Interpretations

Photobucket Octoberblog011_zpsd4edae65 PhotobucketHey gals! I wanted to pop back in and show you one of my coziest fall outfits as I continue to chisel away and edit the mountain of pictures from my trip.  They'll be up soon :)

I got a lot of comments from my family on this look. While passing my brother on the stairs he asked me politely if I'm off to train dragons. I coolly replied no.
When I walked into the kitchen, my mom put down her dish rag and leaned a hip against the counter and squinted her eyes quizzically at me. She pointed a finger at me, and did this thoughtful twirling action with it and then pursed her lips. I grabbed an apple and left before she could put words to her thoughts.
When I walked into the laundry room my dad stopped and sniffed the air. He came closer to me, puzzled, and asked if there was a dead animal in the room. This one made me laugh and I playfully punched him on the arm.
When I mozied on over to my boy's house, he opened the door and broke into a grin. He asked me when we were heading to King's Landing (Game of Thrones reference), and I told him immediately. 

Haters gon' hate.

  2. You look sooo cozy!!! i love this sweater, it is so perfect for fall and winter and that fur vest is awesome.
    Sometimes my brothers give me shit about what I'm wearing too, and then I see how they have dressed themselves and laugh. But your boys comment makes me laugh, as does your response :)

  3. Love wearing sweaters as dresses :) Can't wait to see the mountain photos.

  4. Ah outfit hating, I hate how it keeps me from wearing things I really want to, I'm breaking out of that shell though. So right on sister..


  5. hahah! Well, I love this outfit!! Your family just doesn't understand. ;)

  6. Haha! I love all the reactions of your family and boyfriend. So great!
    I wish I could wear oversized sweaters like that. It's so not flattering on me. But you look pretty great! I love the colors, too!

  7. Hahaha, love each of the reactions you received to this. Sounds like you have a pretty humorous family :) I really like the print on the sweater and the necklace is great! You'd be the coolest chick in King's Landing ;)
