Festive After the Fact

Sweater: Thrifted, $3 // Jean shorts: Old // Boots: Target, gift

I kicked myself when I realized my favorite holiday sweater didn't make it out of storage till after Christmas. Our relationship began humbly when I purchased it for an ugly sweater party for lack of a tackier option. My initial disappointment was quickly replaced by swooning over the shawl collar and classic pattern.

Oh well, it's still winter, so I'm going to wear it with pride. Igby's just lucky I didn't make him wear his holiday best!

I bought a sweater, too, that was supposed to be "ugly". And then I ended up loving it. Whoops.

It is really pretty. I think you can wear it for the remainder of winter and you will be all set.

omg....i thrifted the EXACT SAME sweater about 3 weeks ago!!! seriously...exact same. i thought it was more "fair isle-like" than "christmas", until the guy gave it me half off b/c he thought it was christmas-y. then i got all paranoid about wearing it now.

Cute sweater, but even cuter pup! I'm a crazy pug lady (obsessed) so I always love seeing my favorite little fur balls.

Love the sweater and you are so cute but time to ditch the raggedy shorts. Seriously!

Tami said...

YES. YOU GO WEAR THAT WITH PRIDE! Hah, you look lovely in the outfit, and I love how the red just pops in the cold wintertimes. :) Your pictures are always amazing, and I can't wait for your next post!
