Northern Winds

My sister bought me a ModCloth dress for Christmas, but unfortunately it ripped. Not one dress, but two of them. So, I got a refund and picked this beauty out instead. This dress is super beautiful and really comfortable! Despite the three and slightly negative reviews, I took a chance on it and I'm glad I did.

These tights were also a gift and I've been dying to own a pair of these hand made ombre tights. They're from my super mega awesome rad brother, Josh and his lovely wife, Emily. Ever since I started blogging my brother has been whining because I never write about him, but he's just not that interesting, so it's never happened. Just kidding. He's pretty cool, but I'm pretty sure his wife gets all the credit for these.

I finally got around to photographing the watch! It's been weird getting used to wearing a watch, but I think I like it. Plus it's flashy enough that it's a conversation starter.

  1. I think that last dress being total junk is such a blessing in disguise. This dress is so beautiful and I love the empire waistline on you. I am also LOVING how you are curling your hair. It looks fabulous!

    P.S. I just realized my ombre tights are the opposite of yours... Mine go light to dark :)

  4. That dress is so cute! The skirt part is so fabulous and the color is perfect! Hehe, both of my brothers say the same thing about not being on my blog - it must be a brother thing. :)

  5. The tights combined with the shiny shiny shoes make your outfit look a bit wizard of oz-esque. The tights make it look as if the shoes are having some sort of magical effect on your outfit.

    My brother never gets me anything that good. It's funny because it's either totally off (like chocolates I dont eat) or totally right (like a specific book) but whenever it is right I always already have it! Wish he'd just ask. :)

  8. Your watch is awesome, and I love that dress!!! That sucks that the other one was ripped but you were obviously meant to get this one. It looks amazing with the leather jacket!

  15. I'm glad you took a chance on this dress too, it's gorgeous. And don't even get me started on that watch. It's amazing. But this might just be because I think I have a watch fetish. That's not weird to say on the internet, right? Also, ombre tights = awesome.

  23. That sucks that your new dresses broke, but on the upside you got an incredible dress as a replacement!

  24. Those tights are amazing! Actually, so is your dress, your shoes, and your fancy new watch (I also got a really similar one for Christmas -love it!). Your whole outfit is perfectly sweet and edgy all at once. Every last thing you're wearing is completely my style. Very nice put-together :)

  25. I've never worn a watch so, like you, might find it a bit of a switch. But it is gorgeous and I like how the gold looks with the watch. Its a classic combo but with a twist since the watch is large and fun.

  26. Those ombre tights are sooooo cool!!! If you weren't wearing shoes it would totally blend in with the snow. :) And that dress is so pretty. Sometimes negative reviews have to be taken with a grain of salt. I'm glad you took a chance! <3

  30. Love this outfit! Especially the tights. Sometimes negative reviews have more to do with preference, I've noticed that if I read through them sometimes their negatives are positives to me (like longer than expected)!
