winter/holiday style me challenge: week two

The Winter/Holiday Style Me Challenge continues even though I don’t have a lot to show for it this week. I’m currently on day two of a terrible cold that’s keeping me home from work and not providing me with enough energy for anything other than laying on the couch trying not to curse every time I have to swallow. Fun times.

The blanket scarf. In theory I love it, in reality it’s frustrating. This one at least as it’s not quite wide enough for how long it is. I tried tying it in the morning and later in the day I made an infinity scarf out if it by tying opposite corners. I love the pattern, but it just doesn’t seem to lay very well.

This is one of those outfits that looked cuter in my head than it did when I actually put it on. But I’m constantly running so late these days there’s no time for outfit changes. I really wish Stella & Dot had not discontinued this necklace. It’s one of my favorites because it goes with everything and is nice and delicate when you just need a little something.

This outfit was so cozy for a day of traveling up to Canada and hanging out with the husband. I’m not usually impressed with Old Navy quality (but the prices are hard to beat for my temporary wardrobe); this sweater though is incredibly thick and warm.

Super simple and super comfortable Monday outfit. I’m torn on the scarf though. As you can see in the picture from Nordstrom, it lays nice and flat. On me if feels a little wild and unruly. Someone at work also asked if it was made of dead cat.

We were in Canada for days 6 and 7 and being out of my normal routine I forgot to take pictures. And yesterday, day 9, I wore yoga pants and didn’t get off the couch much.

As I do every challenge, I’m joining up with several of the other ladies to share out outfits on Wednesdays. It’s one of my favorite parts of the challenge. If you’re blogging about your outfits and want to share, link up on Alison or Carrie’s blogs – or both!
