Lazy Saturday

Today is a lazy Saturday for me - my plans consist of homework and errands. To liven things up, I decided to try milkmaid braids, courtesy of The Clothes Horse, and got a compliment on them! I was so surprised and flattered. It's amazing how something so simple can look so great. Clothes-wise today I wanted something very comfortable yet warm (still -4C here) so I mixed some of my favourite pieces - the gingham dress from last week and my first and only handknit sweater. The sweater is 100% bulky (really thick) wool, so I'd wager to say it's the warmest thing I own. What are you doing on this lazy cold Saturday?

Dress: H&M
Sweater: handknit Owls in Cascade Ecological Wool
