Up or Down

Yep -that's SNOW.  I thought it finished for the season and it was time for spring sunshine.  It's like Mother Nature played an April Fools joke on Salt Lake.  I always think of awesome April Fools jokes like months too late and tell myself I'll do it the next one, and then that never happens.  Anyway - I felt like something was missing with this outfit, and decided to put my hair up, and tie the trench differently, to get a different look. 
When I don't have to (or when I can't) take my laptop or textbooks with me to class, I usually just take this little bag with everything I need for note taking.  One of my professors does not allow laptops in class, and it's 3 HOURS LONG.  That's as long as church.  At the beginning of the semester I thought I wouldn't survive without having my computer with me, but it's turned out to be my favorite class this.  Which look do you like better?
What I'm Wearing:
Trench: Banana Republic (purchased for my study abroad in London...it helped me fit in :) )
Shirt: Rag & Bone - found at a darling boutique in Park City - I was told it's a t-shirt dress, for me it's just a shirt
Skinnies: J. Brand (seen here) (and here
Shoes: Target (seen here)
Bag: Vera Bradley

the fact that you did study abroad in london KILLS ME! that was my dream and i never did it! i am such an anglophile nerd that i even netflix british tv shows.

the hair up looks great. it looks like you thought about your look, but didn't lose sleep over it. effortless. isn't that always our goal?

Samantha said...

The mac looks great tied at the front and with your hair up! It shows that spring is on its way, even though its still snowing in places...

down looks softer, prettier. up looks more casual.

i can't believe you got snow, barf.

I like up. Messy buns are VERY in right now. So sad I can't seem to get my short hair up in one... :(

Miss you. Please make contact when you get the chance!

Lisa said...

I like it both ways, but I'd say go up, b/c you rarely have it up (at least not that I've seen).

I'm also crazy about that trench!

Dancing Branflake said...

Up! It shows off the jacket better and the line of your neck. That's totally the dancer in me speaking though!
