Fall Sniffles

Nov 17, 2013

SCARF: c/o The Seam Designs (get the same one here)| DRESS: for sale in my shop here!| SHIRT: Forever 21| BOOTIES: Macy's

Sooo has anyone else been hit with the Fall sniffles? Our apartment has officially turned into a quarantine, where we walk around with blankets over our shoulders and have chicken soup simmering on the stove exclusively. The breakout started on Thursday, when we were supposed to go adventuring through a rain forest here in Washington. We woke up bright and early, laced up our boots and shrugged on our backpacks and were all ready to go...when Marc turned pale and said he was going back to bed to die. 

So here we are on a Sunday, shaking off the last of it and melting of boredom indoors. I don't think I've ever watched so many bad Netflix movies in my life. But anywho, now that we're feeling better we decided to poke our noses out from under the blankets and go hang out in Fremont just to give us some space from those four walls we call home. And seeing how wearing my old high school sweatpants wouldn't be socially acceptable in public (they're cherry red and the size of a child's tent), I went for something that felt like jammies but didn't earn you the same sneers. Like, say, the coziest infinity scarf I can get my hands on? The Seam Designs oatmeal scarf was just the perfect thing to pop on top of my polka dot maxi (which is for sale in my store here) and instantly kept me warm and snuggly while I willed my body to do verbs all afternoon. This scarf goes with just about everything and anything- with dresses, grandpa sweaters, over sized cardigans- anything you can think of! And if you like this one in particular, check out the Seam Designs here and see all the other colors they have to offer! 


And this is how I wore this Seam Designs knit scarf in this post- see, it makes everything cozy!

  1. man your pictures of around town are always so pretty. and you always look amazing in long dresses! i wish i could pull them off like you can. hope you're all recovering quickly, we're just perpetually stuffy w/ it so dry all the time here. & hmm on the scarves, tricky tricky. i love the little kid bear beanie but i suppose i'd look a little goofy trying to squeeze my head into that so my next favs are prob the autumn scarf or the circle scarves, so many beautiful colors!

  2. Heather Gray Oversized Circle Scarf, is everything I need & want!

  3. Oh, so sorry to hear that dear, glad the sniffles went away hehe! ^^ Haven't caught a cold yet surprisingly, although I always do this time of year. Fingers crossed this year's the exception!

    LOVE what you're wearing of course, super cute dress and brilliant layering! And yes, that knit scarf does make everything look cosy! Love it! Perfect as always! ♥

  4. I loved the dress with the jean shirt, and the colour of the cardigan is completely amazing♥


  5. Oh no, hope you're both feeling better. That must be the only downfall for cold weather for me, that pesky flu b****! Blah and it dampened your weekend adventure, such a party pooper. Dislike.


  6. These outfits are absolutely GORGEOUS.

  7. There's my favorite scarf again! I love all the uses it's getting. And aw man, the sniffles suck. I'm starting to get them :/ Netflix time!
    I'm so entering this giveaway too, I'd LOVE the Emerald Green Cowl Scarf

  8. Fall sniffles indeed - I feel like a walking germ-factory at the moment.
    On a sartorial note, I really love this look - I'm a sucker for polka dot anything so your dress really spoke to me!

  9. I don't know if I've made it clear how much I love your style, but it really does kick butt. You know how to layer like no other, my friend!

  10. Ah- the Cold of Death has been going around here too. I've literally never seen a cold so bad. It is taking people down (like, have to call into work and/or school) for multiple days and weeks to be truly over. Ugh. Sounds like you guys got it too. Feel Better!

    Must say though, that maxi dress is great on you. Accentuates in a such a great way your slender-ness and height.

  11. Being sick SUUUUCKS, but snuggling on the couch watching bad Netflix movies sounds awfulling appealing to me right now for some reason.
    You look adorable, this scarf looks so cozy, perfect with that polka dot dress :)

  12. Oh I feel ya! I've been feeling all "ick" too.

  13. WOW I love your pictures sooo much. I had to start off by saying that first because that's what drew me into your blog in the first place.

    I'm sorry you're sick. I was pretty bad last weekend and I'm just getting over it now. Darn this weather.

    Ps. I of course love both looks but the very last one is my favorite. I would so totally wear that! Something JUST like that.


  14. Awwww I hope the fall sniffles leave you alone soon! Having a stuffy nose is no fun :( But hey, at least you look cute :) Love your layering as always!

  16. I haven't been sick so far this fall (KNOCK ON WOOD), but any excuse to snuggle up with bad cheesy movies is good for me! I love maxi dress!

  17. I hope you feel better soon, being sick is no fun at all! <3
