self sufficiency

DIY crochet scarf
thrifted coat 
French Connection Sweater
Target basic tee
H&M jeggings + booties 
MNG by MANGO bowler bag
dollar store mittens 

I'll make up for the fact that I haven't been posting so often with the fact that I crocheted this scarf myself! I was sick of looking for the perfect winter scarf, so I asked my mom to teach me how to crochet. It's so easy that I now resemble the old lady on the bus with miles of yarn in her bag
This outfit transitioned me from shopping to drinks to dinner to more drinks to dancing. I wanted to be comfortable because my evening involved a lotttt of walking, so I went with the classic jean + sweater combo. But adding a dash of red lipstick and being able to take off said sweater to reveal the skintight tee underneath served me well. Always wear versatility

By the way, this is the bowler bag that I am giving away. It's not the exact same one though - I hyped about it so much that I got another for myself. Yours will still arrive brand spankin' new.
