Before we get started today, I want to announce the winner of the 5 Kitchen Aid Mixers!
I also want to take a minute to say Thank You for all of your entries and kind words last week!
We were overwhelmed with the level of participation and were just thrilled that y’all seemed to be just as excited as we were about everything! All 4 other winners have already claimed their prizes and everybody was so appreciative and gracious!
And like I said before, we are already trying to figure out how to make next year even better.
Yeah, we are super Type A.
So I saw this picture on Pinterest several weeks ago and knew I had all the pieces.
|click HERE for source!|
So I threw it together, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to be wearing it once a week from now until the end of time. Or at least until summer.
scarf HERE / denim shirt sold out, but options below / MUST HAVE leggings HERE /
Frye boots sold out, but many of you have THESE and they have FANTASTIC reviews
oatmeal heather colored tank HERE / earrings HERE / similar watch HERE / bracelet HERE
Above I just wrapped it around my neck once (I’ll show you how in a second).
And here I wore it more like a cape.
Actually, I think it’s more like a shawl, but I’d prefer not to sound like a grandma, so let’s just all agree to say cape.
And then I took the pics below with my rain boots.
I wanted to show you how I wrapped the scarf, and I wanted to show how different the outfit looks with the boots.
And then the next morning, I wore the exact same outfit.
Yep. The same outfit. 2 days in a row.
Are you judging me?
Like you’ve never done it.
I was running errands that day, and I wasn’t going to see anybody that I had seen when I had worn the exact same outfit the day before.
You might call it lazy, I call it genius.
Want to get the look for yourself?
Well, let’s start with some chambray shirt options.
I love mine, and it’s from J. Crew Factory, but they no longer carry it.
I think any of the shirts below could work for leggings, as long as you order a size up.
I am featuring shirts from many different retailers and at varying price points.
There are more to see, so scroll to the right, and just click on what you are interested in!
One of them is even a maternity option!
Now, if you are interested in getting the entire look for yourself, here you go….
I’m telling you, it’s the ULTIMATE TOTALLY COMFY BUT STILL LOOK PUT TOGETHER outfit out there. Feel free to quote me on that.
The second part of today’s post is in response to some e-mail questions.
I have received several e-mails each day over the past week of so from you ladies still needing present ideas. Most of the e-mails were about getting presents for for the men in your lives and your teenage daughters and sons.
I knew IMMEDIATELY that I was going to recommend things that I had already recommended last year. So new readers, LISTEN UP!
These next gifts are TRIED AND TRUE.
Click HERE for the Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker.
If your guy is in to gadgets like my guy, he will totally LOVE this.
And he will love you for getting it for him.
We take it to the ranch, we sit on the back porch with it, we even take it to friend’s houses if we know we are going to be on a back porch or out by a pool.
It is awesome.
This could be one of those 1 and DONE presents. And he’ll be THRILLED.
Chris loves all BOSE products, and Nordstrom carries several HERE.
(If you have any reservations about this speaker, check out the comments section below! People LOVE IT!!!!)
I received a Clarisonic as a gift from my sister several years ago (THANK YOU SEESTER!), and I love in it and BELIEVE IN IT sooo much. She had one and loved it so much and she knew I had to have one too.
This product totally lives up to all of the hype.
(The one pictured is sold out, but there are LOTS of others to choose from HERE.)
If your loved ones are

Mix and Match Mama says
Ohhhhh! I love!!! The mysterious girl looks a little like Erika, right? Maybe it's her secretly pinning images of herself :).
Erika Slaughter says
Love the look!!! And the same outfit two days in a row. I have no clue what you're talking about. 😉
Whitney Nichols says
Your recreating looks great! The photo is actually mine. Here is the full post:http://www.polishedandpinkblog.com/2012/10/cold-weather-gear.html
Hi Whitney! I just updated the link under your picture! Thanks so much for sending it to me and for providing today's inspiration!
Michele @ The Joyful Home says
How cute is that cape? And, the Bose speaker is a great guy gift- thanks!
Rob loves his North Face Jacket!! Such a great gift idea for men!!! Xoxo!
Jackie T. says
I second that Bose speaker! Just bought it last week for my son's birthday…that little thing has some POWER! It's great because it so portable…back and forth from dorm room to home, over to a friend's, etc…and I believe it will automatically pause if you get a phone call…or something like that anyway. 😉
Stacy Gardner says
What size do you wear in the tank? Thanks!
Hi Stacy! I wear a small in the long and lean tank!
Natalie Zambreski says
LOVE this! I love how easy it is to be cute and at the same time COMFY in winter clothing! This year especially!
Denise Holthaus says
Good Morning Sheaffer! I'm sorry to hear you are under the weather. Regarding two of your suggestions. I gave my 25 yr old son the Bose speaker and he LOVED IT!! Also, the Clarisonic is AMAZING! I bought it about a year ago and used it for a couple weeks and then quit, not sure why. I saw a story on TV about a month ago, so charged it back up and started using again. I was amazed the difference in my skin. I get a monthly microdermabrasion and even my anesthetist commented on how it looked!! It is definitely from using the Clarisonic! It cleans your skin so good that when you use your moisturizer, it can penetrate your skin and really work on those fine lines. :). It's worth every penny! Love your blog and thank you for your commitment to fashion and everything you do!!
Charming Lucy says
Oh my! I wore the same outfit to church yesterday with a different scarf. I am even starting to think like you now(: Susan
Slightly Askew Designs says
LOVE the outfit! I'm notorious for wearing the same outfit on Sunday and Monday – because the last thing I want to think about on Monday morning is picking out an outfit 🙂 Happy Monday, friend!!!
We LOVE the Bose Soundocks! We purchased these for our very hard to buy for parents last year, and everyone still raves about them. So of course we had to buy one for ourselves as well.
And you make me feel so much better knowing you "recycle" outfits too! 🙂
Oooo…I am so glad you shared the Bose speaker today! Needing an idea for the hubs and this looks awesome!
AHHHH COMPLETELY FREAKING OUT!!!! (as I've just told you and Shay via e-mail)
Just… a million times thank you. The odds were infinitesimal and I'm thrilled to share these with my loved ones!!!
Because Shanna Said So says
This outfit is so spot on….I think I need to copy too!!! I wish your shirt wasn't sold out…been on the hunt for a longer chambray to wear with leggings!
Laurie S says
Hope you are feeling better. The mystery girl looks like Shay to me
Jen LaPittus says
Oh! I wore this same outfit last week! I love my Hue leggings and my denim shirt with tall brown boots!! 🙂
Amy Kleis says
You are adorable!!!
Jodi H says
That is a cute and simple look.
kimm atwood says
Any outfit with leggings is a win in my book! Love it!!!!
One of my favorite outfits! So comfy and cute!
Mary G says
Hue leggings on sale for $27 (Nordstrom) as of today!!
So Cute! Where do you get your layer tanks???
Hi Happy Fish! They are linked in the post above, but they are the Long and Lean tanks from Target!
You always look so cute Sheaffer! Love your scarf.
I just have to say… I love capes. 🙂 oh, you could call it a wrap though… that sounds very proper doesn't it? Going to get my wrap… Feel like I'm in a different century, one where men wear ties and women wear shirtwaists. ahh.. anyhoo… sorry about that. 🙂
