It's no surprise I enjoy dressing up like a little (French?) boy sometimes, hence the obsession with these overalls. I mean they are just so easy to style up, down, or in between- like this look today. With my no-fail trusty button up, and the help of my friends at Les Méchantes, I was able to elevate an otherwise weekend look and pull it off for a day of Friday meetings. The silk lady tie feminizes the aesthetic and brings a pop of color in an otherwise two-note situation. 

I know what you're thinking, where can I get that tie? Well not only can I tell you, but Les Méchantes was kind enough to offer all Allergic to Vanilla readers a special discount! Use code allergictovanilla for 15% off anything on the site. That's major because I am definitely coveting this one, am I allowed to use my own code?

Happy Friday, friends! Is anyone doing anything exciting?

New year, new 'do. I've been needing a hair cut since 6 weeks after I got my last one, and I won't tell you how long ago that was! I love the new length, and it's even more bouncy when it's curly. Can we talk about this sweater though? I've had it for years and don't ever pull it out of the closet until it gets really cold. It was packed and ready to go for Montreal but realistically I wouldn't have been able to wear a coat over it, so it didn't come with. And I of course wanted to wear it as soon as I came back. I love it with these sleek pants, and prim pumps- it def tones down the crazy faux fur sleeves. And we all know how much I love my fur!
