miley’s style pre-hair-chop was a beautiful thing. 2012 was a great year. let’s call it the era of the bun. via pinterest, tumblr
a good army jacket // i’m loving mine from fjallraven
a wool coat // preferably in black, charcoal, or navy
a good, slouchy beanie
a black or brown flat brimmed hat // i’m still on the look out for one that fits me
a scarf that doubles as a cape, sweater, and blanket
short booties in black or brown leather
sneakers // think vans, converse, supergas and don’t forget socks!
some sort of winter shoe // llbean boots, uggs (i know, i know, horrifying), etc.
the outfit essentials
jeans // i like medium washes, grey, and black jeans for winter
chunky sweaters // double points if they’re men’s and once belonged to your father, boyfriend, or best friend
big flannels // good as pajamas, cardigans, an extra layer under a coat, an extra layer over a coat (i did this the other night and it was excellent)
thick leggings // perfect under a huge sweater and flannel combination (obviously to show that you have a body and are not a man)
neutral nail polish // think reds, greys, dark purples
gloves! // i honestly just like the cotton ones from the drugstore and fingerless ones, but they make all the difference

mac 187 brush // i’ve had this for a while but always preferred a bigger brush for bronzer…not anymore!
