Cozy, Warm, Fuzzy

This morning when I awoke to temperatures in the 30's and a cold, strong wind, I decided that it was definitely not a dress day for me. All I wanted on my way in to work was to be warm and cozy (with a cup of coffee in hand), while still attempting to be somewhat stylish. Inspired by the following photo from The Sartorialist, I decided to play with proportion a bit and break out my straight leg black jeans and black oxfords.

I wasn't sure if I'd achieved my two goals, but I was definitely comfortable in my thick, fuzzy J. Crew sweater. I was so excited when I came across it in a local thrift store a year ago, especially after seeing that it was only five dollars. The bell sleeves, length, collar, warmth and earthy colors definitely sold me on it that afternoon, so I stowed it away in my cedar chest for a cold day when I would need it to help me face work and the weather. And boy was I happy that I had it when leaving the house this morning.
