Dare I say dapper?

 What madness is happening here? I am showing my bare arms in February!


It's getting warmer, people. It's supposed to be in the 60s tomorrow. What is that about?


 An easier question: What is this outfit about? It is about the above necklace. I bought it on eBay last week, and then I was like "I need to wear my new necklace," and then I couldn't figure out what to wear it with, and then I found a thrifted velvet Ralph Lauren vest I haven't worn yet, and was like "With that! I will wear it with that!" And then I did.


It is a good vest. The necklace is a good necklace, but the bright, bright sun kind of makes it disappear in anything but closeups.


I've written recently about these shoes, which are my friends during winter. So it's going to be in the 60s tomorrow? That's great! But right now, there's still some snow in the shade.


Hence this giant sweater. It is an excellent giant sweater. It was a Christmas gift from my in-laws and it is on my body all the time.


Dare I say I look a little dapper in this outfit? I am slightly Three Musketeers-ing it in this outfit. I could possibly swashbuckle, save a pretty lady and (I'm jumping ahead time periods here) go to the opera in this outfit (okay, not so much with the wrinkly jeans, but definitely the velvet vest and swirly-type coat sweater). I do dare. I dare to say I look a little dapper.

LOVE those pants! I have a pair of polka dot pants but they aren't jeans..just like, black pants. What swap did you do for that bracelet? I've been thinking of trying out a swap, just haven't really looked for any..
