OOTD 11/12/2011

This morning I had some errands to run and it was very chilly here, so I thought, "What's a better way to warm up, than with a cup of hot chocolate?" (I'm not a coffee drinker  :o))  So, I pulled through the Starbucks drive thru and ordered a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate.  Yummmmy!!  It's a mixture of milk, mocha sauce, toffee nut and vanilla syrup topped with whipped cream, caramel sauce and sea salt.  Try one and let me know what you think.  :o)

As for my outfit, it was inspired by a friend on polyvore, and I added another jacket to help fight off the cold.  It started with my J Crew stripe painter this shirt!  My cost per wear has to be change by now.  If you missed out on the retail version, the factory store is offering it now in three colors (navy, cedar and charcoal) for $24.50. (Check it out here)  It would be a great piece to add to your wardrobe that you can wear year-round.

Over the stripe tee, I layered my wool-cashmere hoodie...and over that, I layered the LL Bean Corduroy jacket.  I like this "layering thing" and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.  I also added my pearls and leopard flats which added a little touch of polish and panache.
