turban: F21
trench coat: H&M
faux fur collar: Foreign Exchange
jeans: Urban Outfitters
boots: Union Bay via Marshalls ($25)
bag: Nordstrom Rack

Laid back, simple, and COMFY that was all I wanted out of an outfit yesterday.  To be honest I was not even planning on snapping any outfit pictures, since all I was planning on wearing was a jeans and a t- shirt combo.  However, a certain situation required me to get a little bit creative.... I had not done my laundry in foreeeever!!! :o  Yes I was running out of options and clothes to wear.  Luckily the weather was chilly (FINALLY) and I just threw on my really old acid wash jeans,  a thin sweater, and as I rushed out of my room I threw on the headband, the trench (with safety pinned faux fur collar) and my new "combat" boots.

If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter you probably read about my $25 flat military style lace up boots, well here they are.  ( little bit cheap-y, but not bad for $25!)

Yesterday we started our family Christmas posadas at my house (a Mexican tradition) so this was the perfect laidback outfit allowing me run around and get everything ready for our guests, but I am planning on "dressing up" a little bit more for the next ones.

have a lovely day !

can i have your hair? haha it's so pretty and has the perfect waves to it. i'm so jealous of it since i have stick straight thick gross hair. haha

a faux fur collar is so on my wishlist right now. i can't find one anywhere! but i guess i haven't really been putting in the effort.

for an outfit you say you didn't put a lot of effort into you really do look great!

You look fab in the turban headband! Mel and I just got the same turban headband from Nasty Gal Vintage. :) You look so laidback chic, esp. with the faux fur collar.

Missed you at the Snowball last weekend!

You have the PERFECT hair for the turban!! It looks amazing on you! Plus you look so laidback cozy-chic with the trench and boots...ah perfection! Great idea also pinning that stole to your trench! It gives it a whole new life for the winter. I see mine in my closet everyday and wish I could still wear it! boohoo to snow :( lol
