Daily Dose: The girl in the green scarf

I have been reading a lot lately.  My brother kindly found me an iPad mini and so far I've read through A Song of Ice and Fire and the Shopaholic books.  Obviously both clothing and dragons excite me immensely. I don't quite know why the Shopaholic movie changed the colour of a Very Important Scarf to green (it was blue in the books), but that's OK.  Green scarves are better anyways.

I really like this scarf-- the colour's great, and it's big and floofy enough to wear like a shawl when I get cold (which is always).  I've actually used this scarf as a blanket in a movie theatre to great effect.  Unfortunately, it made everything else it rubbed against green, plus it's care tag told me it was dry clean only, but I did a quick hand wash and it's much less bleed-y now!

More than the scarf, I am happy about this dress.  I wanted it when I saw it initially, but it was around $50, which for me, was too much.  I happened to walk into the store one day and find it on super sale and immediately snapped it up!  I find sweater dresses great for work and for my climate and they're super easy for those days that you don't feel like working too hard to get dressed.

I actually never bought these shoes-- a friend asked me if I was a size 7 once and it turned out that she used to be a size 7 before her pregnancy, and wasn't after... basically making these shoes a gift from her baby.  Which I'm OK with.

What sort of tricks do you have to stay warm and fashionable?

Grey sweater dress - Dynamite - size XS - $11
Green scarf - Le Chateau - no size - ~$7
Black fleece-lined tights - Ricki's - size S/M - $16.50
Grey rose bracelet - Claire's - no size - $1
Grey booties - gift - size 7

Total cost = $35.50
