Muumuu-rific

Yes, this is a muumuu and I think it's terrific - hence muumuu-rific.

Daily Outfit, Tuesday, 2/1/11




The Breakdown:
  • Black turtleneck - Old Navy
  • Vintage muumuu - thrifted (label says Punahou Apparel)
  • Studded belt - Michael Michael Kors - Nordstrom
  • Black leggings - INC - Macys
  • Riding boots - Born Crown - Nordstrom
  • Scarf - gifted (thanks, Kathy!)
  • Trench - Kenneth Cole - Ideeli
I don't know why I love this muumuu so much, but I really do.  I like that the length, the pattern and the colors are all atypical.  It is very voluminous, so not belting it was not an option if I wanted to have any sort of waist.  As it is, with this much volume, I still only have sort of a waist but I still really liked this outfit.

Last time I wore this I wore it with black tights and my double strap brown shoes (seen here) and it was just too short.  If it were less full, I think it would be okay with just tights, but this much volume and this little length, I am far more comfortable with leggings instead of tights.  Especially riding into work.

Speaking of which, the ride in was freezing today!  I forgot to cover my ears and regretted it immensely when I got to work.  At least we're not getting the snow storms much of the nation is getting.  As you can see from the pictures (blurry though they are - I'm working on that, I swear), it was very sunny today.  Very sunny and very cold.

How is the weather where you are at?  Are you getting tons of snow?
