Split Decision


Today I couldn’t decide to snood or not to snood. (Yeah, I went there.) So we took photos of both ways because that seemed like the easiest solution. So for those who like a simple look, images 1 and 3 are for you. For those who like a bit more complicated, see 2, 4, 5. And for everyone else who prefers neither, I fear that I have nothing for you. There is always this. You’re welcome.


Jacket: c/o Simply Audrey

  • http://chaoticdomestic.blogspot.com/ Laura @ Chaotic Domestic

    I love this look… with or without the snood.  I'd probably have a hard time deciding too!

  • Stephanie Lam

    To snood!!! =)

    I like the snood. I have one just like that but its green and navy? Should have got that one.

    love the neutral tone of this outfit. would have never thought to pair the infinity scarf with the military jacket.

    also, bare legs in November? you are a brave, brave woman! 

  • http://grumpsiepoodle.blogspot.com/ Naomie

    Love it! But bare legs? Wowee. I'm jealous! I'm over here blowdrying chairs before I sit down to keep warm. 

    Also, pup in a cup is the cutest thing ever.

  • The Workette

    did Banana republic make a bag like the one you have on at some point?


  • Alissa Futhey

    Is it weird that I also sometimes have thoughts about what I want my blog post photos to look like? I'm all "Oh this will be a great outfit for a serious pose!" 

  • Ioana

    aww i love all 3 options you offer today :)) not only do u have great style, u have a great sense of humour also!

  • lavieenliz

    great look…love that skirt!


  • http://therichstyle.com/ Melody Rich

    I like snood as a verb. Fashion and an English lesson. This blog has it all!

  • http://twitter.com/PPFGirl PennyPincherFashion

    OMG – pup in a cup!  Love the outfit and the subtle print mixing with that striped snood and your skirt – also crushing on these boots!


  • Melissa

    You're hilarious! That picture of the dog in the teacup is adorable. I can't decide if I prefer the snood or lack of snood. Both are equally gorgeous.


  • http://rebeccalately.blogspot.com/ Rebecca Lately

    Ahh.. I like it both ways.  And I love the teeny tiny pup!  

  • http://www.birdfriend.tumblr.com/ Mackenzie Conner

    ahhh! although i absolutely love your outfit (with snood is the best!) i'm going to have to say that the third option was my favorite 😛


  • http://twitter.com/sarahsreallife Sarah H.

    TO SNOOD, for sure. It's a no brainer for me. Or perhaps a no necker? Let's change the subject…I love that skirt.

    The link to a similar skirt didn't work! Would you mind posting another link? I'm obsessed with the skirt…

  • Morgan Liti

    omg. the pup in the cup is to die for (not that you didn't have anything for me here – cause I am most definitely snooding). :) LOOOVE the snood.


  • Typhanie Stewart

    Love the "pup in cup"! I'll take all of the above 😉


  • Caroline L.

    I'll take all of the above.

    You're such a people pleaser!!! 😉

  • Jessica

    What's the brand of the skirt?

  • The Style Storm

    Love the skirt and boots together!

    That is a circular scarf, not a snood.  A snood is a fabric bag pinned at the back of the neck to hold hair.

  • Marcela S.
  • 5thAvenue

    Ok, well I would def call that a snood and I think you look snoodalicious!

  • Kacie Ellis

    So after reading this, I'm like "what's a snood?" I scrolled through your pictures trying to find the difference in the pictures. Thinking maybe its a facial expression. Then I finally looked it up on Google and found out its a scarf. How could not have noticed a scarf is some pics and not in others? lol. Love the snood and love your skirt too!


  • http://Womantoanother.com Nikell

    Super cute boots. That pup in a cup made my day… adorable (^_^)

  • Vanessaadams1922

    Cute outfit. I love how you accessorized with the scarf. It matches the skirt well.



  • Theartisann

    this morning i walked into my roommate's room and said "can i borrow your fur SNOOD this weekend?" and then we tried to repeat snood as much as possible.

    AND the pup in a cup is one of my favorite things i've ever seen on pinterest.

  • Sheislovely

    Love the look!! Not sure what was a snood though….. *looking it up*

    The addition of the scarf adds much more interest to the look and I like it a lot.

  • Sophie Strout

    I didn't even notice. I was too distracted by the awesomeness that is that skirt.

  • http://twitter.com/ErinGlabby Erin Michelle

    I'm glad you snooded! The military jacket is great with the outfit. 



    The pattern on that skirt is so cool. I love it. 

    And I love the snood, but I'd wear it either way.

    SNOOD, for sure!!!It gives the outfit that ''extra''thing!!!!Really nice! and I think the snood makes you happy, you are smilling in the photos u are wearing it!!! Coincidence?? no…..

  • Happinessatmidlife

  • Deanna C

    Can't get enough of the snood!  Love the look!


  • Kristian Satterlee

    "Snood" is the scarf right? I like both looks myself but was way busier staring at the cute skirt than the scarf-thing. 


  • Lily McNamara

    i've been eyeing that tote at madewell for a while now, it looks great with this outfit!

  • http://www.natinlove.com/ Nat

    Cute either way! I'm leaning towards "To snood!" :)


  • lmc1971

    You look lovely, I love the entire outfit! …I have to ask, cause I've been wondering for a few weeks now…are you pregnant? You have a glow about you…

  • http://work-it-blog.blogspot.com/ workitChristine

    I think I like the more complicated Snood version. 

  • http://newpetite.blogspot.com/ New Petite

    Love the skirt! 

  • http://cheesetwinewine.blogspot.com/ Crystal

     when in doubt, add a scarf. that's what i always say.


  • http://gingeradorned.com/ Kat

    Ok, I'm confused. In theatre in college, a snood was a little thing ladies bundled their hair into in the 1920's and it was worn on the back of the head. Kind of a little chignon cover. The old-fashioned sock bun, if you will. This looks like an infinity scarf. What happened? 😀

  • http://gingeradorned.com/ Kat

    Ok, I used my Google machine and looked it up – tubular scarves have been called snoods as well since the 1960's:

  • http://forunendinglove.blogspot.com/ Lauren

    You look so much like Mary from Downton Abbey!  That's a compliment!


  • http://twitter.com/PetiteAdventure Petite Adventures

    I love it with the snood. I also love the colour combo – your skirt and the green shirt work so well together!

    One of the most inspiring outfits ever! Honestly, I love it so much I have no words to describe it. Amazing, I want to recreate it as soon as possible
