The hard part of buying things off-season is having to wait to wear it. This sweater is a perfect example of that- I found it last May and had to see it staring at me from my closet for 6 months before I could break it out. But I’ve definitely made up for lost time this last week.
sweater, boots, scarf: vintage
dress: F21 (also styled here)
As much as I love everything about this sweater, one of my favorite parts is that it’s homemade and someone stitched a copyright symbol at the bottom. Priceless.
Well, I’m off to tackle my to-do list and maybe get around to putting the Christmas tree up tonight.

Yesterday I was over at Flock Together wearing Jessica’s license plate top and talking about my incurable wanderlust. Hope to see you over there!
Also- today is the last day to sign up for the Gift of Thrift swap, so get on that if you haven’t already!

Ever since things cooled down over here, I have found my go-to outfit. I’ve been obsessively wearing my Mitla Moda top, thick leggings, boots, and some long sleeves. I took outfit photos in one version of this look, and then decided I’d share another one too. There’s not much variation- I just really like them both :)
This top is the Chickadee in orange from Dus’ non-profit shop, and right now all orders get free US/Canada shipping and gift wrapping! And all items are fair trade! You can read more about her shop mission here.
top: Mitla Moda
denim shirt & sweater: F21 (years ago)
brown boots: vintage
black boots: Last Chance
necklaces: all in my shop
I actually wore the version with the denim last night to meet up with Amanda from Little Lady Little City. It’s been so fun to get the opportunity to meet some blogger friends in real life, unfortunately we were the worst bloggers and forgot to get a picture- oops!

Oh man, did I enjoy this long weekend! It was my first time in a loooong time that I wasn’t working in restaurants and actually got to have the whole 4 day holiday weekend off. It started with me leaving work early on Wednesday due to some family scariness, but everything is a-okay now.
On to the good- I got the Etsy shop up and running (thank you so much for the tweets, comments, and messages!!!) and my best friend is in town from Italy for a few weeks so I finally got to meet her perfect daughter (how cute is this mohawk???!).
The past 5 years a couple of our friends have come over for Thanksgiving and this year their dog kept insisting it wasn’t too cold to swim, although she would just quickly jump in and then shake the water all over us :)
Our littlest cat is such an Arizona native! Our house is about 70º right now but she is cold as can be. We keep catching her burrowed under the blankets, smashed up against the other cat, or standing in a beam of sunlight from a window- it’s pretty hilarious.
Well, everyone loves pictures of babies, dogs, and kitties, so there ya go. How was your weekend? Please tell me you didn’t finish all your Christmas shopping!

Happy December! Like everyone else, I really can’t believe we are at the last month of the year.
I’ve had intentions of getting my Etsy shop up and running for awhile and finally dedicated the time this weekend to photograph and list some jewelry I’ve been working on. As you can see I used the same color scheme as the blog, so even though the names aren’t the same, they are somewhat cohesive.
I’m really excited to have this up there and hope you find something for a unique gift or to wear yourself!
As a celebration you can take 20% off your purchase with the code LALAFAUXBOIS, and that will be good until December 15th. If you have an idea for a custom piece or any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
