I was a big loser when it came to the Missoni for Target collection last fall. Luckily for me, though, I have a friend in Texas who manages a Target and was able to keep her eyes peeled for returns of the one dress in the whole collection I was really keen on. And voila! When she sent it to me I immediately had it tailored, because this particular dress was cut a little, err, generously. The one thing I couldn’t have the tailor adjust, however, was the length – it’s a little short, yeah? So I knew I had to wait and wear it with some thick leggings to make it work appropriate. Throw a cream shirt underneath to give it some sleeves and slap on beautiful brown riding boots, add an infinity scarf up top and I’m ready for the brutality of January in NYC.

Long overdue, but here is my..11th outfit at my new job. Can I take a moment to talk about how much I love infinity scarves? Because I really do. In fact I wish I had more (this one is my only one, but luckily it goes with everything in my closet!). My favorite part of this outfit though, isn’t what’s happening around my neck. Here’s a detail shot:
Since in the winter I repeat outfits a lot, tights are a major way I mix things up. When Missoni for Target happened (and I got left in the dust) I missed out on a really cool and funky pair of zig-zag tights. Fast forward a few weeks and I’m rummaging through H&M to find things for my Halloween costume – be still, my heart! – I found a pair of tights so strikingly similar and definitely not sold out that I just had to snatch them up.
