Who Loves the Sun

 Turtleneck: Take Out via TJMaxx, $10 // Cardigan: Pretty Good via TJMaxx, $13 // Jeans: Guess via TJMaxx, $28 // Boots: Vintage, $16 // Necklace: Fred Flare

This sun-drenched picture was taken over the weekend. At the moment, it's dark, grey and sleeting outside. I have to admit that I'm liking the nasty weather. It's a great excuse to get cozy and festive. As for the outfit, it's pretty simple, but there are a couple of elements I really like about it. For one, my new drapey cardigan. Its voluminous shape makes my oversize cardigans from last year look entirely unappealing. Also, I'm really digging the turtleneck with the short hair (which is rather windblown in this shot).

I've been waiting a braided necklace like this one for MONTHS but have had no success in finding it. Fred Flare ran out :( Do you know of somewhere else I can find it?

I just can't get over how cute your hair is! love the outfit, that's a great neclace!

That short hair really suits you! I always end up wearing my hair up when I wear turlenecks because it just gets so annoying. And mad props for pairing the gold boots with the purple - I probably would have been drawn to black, but it totally works!

It's dark, grey and sleeting here in NYC today. You can take your weather back. I don't want it!

Sal said...

That braided chain is to die for! And it looks fab with the simple turtleneck.

Brina said...

I cannot get over how different the new hair is.
I'm looking forward to seeing re-done outfits with it, I think the contrast will be huge.

You're clearly in another part of Kansas, as I am totally snowed out! Love the boots though.
