Cinder and Smoke

Today has been deliciously rainy. I say deliciously, because it's given me a good excuse to drink lots of vanilla biscotti coffee. And also because I may be heading out for a really fatty dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. While I love food, rainy days make me want to eat even more than usual. Other things rainy days make me want to do: cozy up in the library with some quality reading (check) listen to a whole lot of Iron&Wine (check check), and wear one of my comfiest sweaters (check check check). Also, thanks to you guys who read my writers block post. It's really been what's been weighing most heavily on me lately, so I really wanted to write about it and maybe (hopefully) help someone out in the process.

Dress: H&M, Sweater: Madewell, Shoes: Dolce Vita via Marshall's






Until tomorrow,

  7. i kind of love this look. it's casual but chic and still is totally you. i wish it was actually raining here still. but it's all sunny and idk how to dress because i'm weird. i need a cozy library rainy day to do homework and listen to iron and wine. i'll probably do that tonight. omg listen to the moth and the flame.

  8. I love this look, the sweater looks really cozy and it's got great colours. Also your hair is so cute, I love it!

  9. I kind of like the idea that a rainy day can be delicious. All too many times I let the rain bum me out...but your positive spin makes it seem not to bad:) Vanilla biscotti coffee sounds de-lish and I had Cheesecake Factory cheesecake tonight myself and it was perfectly fatty, sweet, and delectable indeed!

    Enough rambling...your outfit is perfect! That is both a beautiful sweater and use of pattern mixing.

    As I'm way behind in blog reading, I am going to read your writers block post now:)

  10. Nicole, the queen of mixing patterns has done it again! :) Is that a tiny cat print on your skirt?! It's too precious! I love how you wore the white loafers to make them pop even more. I need to find a comfy pair of white shoes. You are simply adorable. :D

  11. amazing skirt and great sweater, love the shoes too
