A Robber Who Pays for Everything

Guess who my sartorial inspiration was?

What is this, an honest to Gandhi outfit post??? I have to say, getting back in the saddle felt good, even though the saddle was remarkably dusty. And yes, I'm still talking about a figurative saddle. Aaaaand that's honestly all the pseudo-witty things I have to say for today. I believe any and all possible one-liners went out the window once I drank that salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks today. I hypothesize all that sugar went straight to my head and sucked out all funny things to say-- but that could just be the sugar talking.

I wanted to post this to show that there's a good amount of bona fide WINTER here. Unfortunately, any pictures taken as this angle were all dull and junk, which explains why the majority of pictures don't have a pretty snowy backdrop.

I've always loved black, white, and red...and the yellow chairs are fun! And I've melted crayons before, but never did think to actually put them in shaped pans. Great idea!

AHHH YOU LOOK SO FABULOUS. Black and white can occasionally look boring. BUT YOU TOTALLY ROCK IT LIKE CUHHRAZYYYY.

And woah. Those tights are such a good colour. It reminds me of robin's eggs. Adore it!

Merry (almost) Christmas!

You do such a fantastic job mixing patterns here! That sweater is fantastic, and I love how you've worked it with the tights, boots and skirt! Also a huge fan of those yellow chairs =)

Those crayon creations are so fun too! Is the wax damaging to the pans or easy to remove? Why have I not tried this yet? It looks fantastically fun!
