what i wore :: totally fraujjing

:: head to toe ::
ear warmer :: c/o Manzanita
circle scarf :: Prairie Hen
glasses :: Warby Parker
shirt :: Threadless
cardigan :: target
skirt :: thrifted
coat :: thrifted
tights :: mall
boots :: c/o Blowfish

I have entirely too many things I want to talk about in this outfit post. I'll start with the title. One day, a long time ago, it was really cold out and Ivan announced to me that he was 'frausja'. I was like "what the heck is frausja?' Turns out it was a word he made up to mean really freezing. So now obviously we say that all the time when we are cold. And let me tell you...when I was taking those photos outside, I was fraujjing. See, you can be frausja or fraujjing, it is a very versatile word. Make sense? 

Something to help with the fraujjing-ness was my cute granny square ear warmer and my scarf! I love how they came from two different sweet ladies but they match each other so nicely.

Third thing...my coat! I almost fell over when I saw this at the thrift store. It is not exactly a cold winter day coat but it is perfectly fine for milder winter days and quick trips to and from the car. I love it.

Fourth...my boots. I know I always say that I love my Blowfish shoes but these are possibly the best boots I have ever owned. I have been wearing them with absolutely everything and a few times Ivan has said "Those are nice boots but they don't really go with your outfit." To which I reply "Of course they do!". Boys. 

Ok, I think I covered everything. Except for that cute hutch behind me. I'll tell you about that another time. Oh and my lack of bright hair. Maybe I don't want to talk about that. I'm sad it's gone so please don't make me sadder by telling me that I'm not fun without it ;). I'm only half kidding. More on that later too.

ps. Ivan and I had a conversation about how we each think "frausja" and "fraujjing" should be spelled. I don't totally agree with this spelling but since Ivan made up the word I decided to let him have the final say.

  16. That coat is awesome, awesome, awesome. And don't feel bad about your hair - its lovely! Besides, you're on your way to getting it healthy, and healthy hair is far prettier than bright hair. Plus, think of all the crazy fun styling it can handle when it's healthy :)

  20. You guys are seriously the nicest ever! I love you! I'm sending you all virtual hugs.
    Leona, yes! I have been thinking about it ever since I saw you with it. I finally bought it when I was doing the "buy lots of things for yourself" thing around Christmas.

    Nova, no they are just from some mall store. A department store maybe...can't remember. I would definitely recommend We love Colors though! These mall ones have a big run that i'm hiding in the photos! hehe!

  25. Hey Elycia, I was admiring your amazing earwarmer and then noticed that you've found a hair colour that changes in the light, like petrol or those new nail varnishes. I just spent 10 minutes trying to look up the name of that effect but couldn't find it but the point was: I love your new hair colour. And your scarf.

  26. I think your hair looks fabulous - ESPECIALLY with all the colours in these photos, such a nice colour combo in all of them :)

  40. I think your new color is very fitting with your skin tone and it really makes your pretty eyes pop! And I am right there with you. I had "Cruella De Vil" hair for the last 3 years. I kept it through my wedding in September (http://dixiepixelphoto.com/custom_gallery/justin-ashley/) then knew that it had to go. :( The hair on my blonde side had broken off at the crown to about an inch. As much as it saddened me, I colored it "natural" red and cut it short to even up my layers a bit more. I know I will never be able to have it like that again because my natural color is too dark to lift up to that level of blonde without it eventually breaking off again. I work in a hair salon and it really stinks when clients OFTEN remind me of how much "better" they liked my hair like that. I miss it daily. But guess what the both of us will be doing in 2-3 years? Running our fingers through our long, luscious, healthy locks (without fingers getting caught halfway down) while it blows in the wind.
