How’s this for a pop of color? Even though it is still officially winter, thanks Punxsutawney Phil, I am craving some “spring” looks. I already have my spring manicure, and now I have a beautiful hot pink purse, thanks to my hubby. (Valentine’s present) I don’t care that it looks a little out-of-place with the bulky sweater, that’s how I roll. Lol!It is even time for the drunken snowman to go back in storage. My “S” is still under construction, so I am scouring the house for something else to hang on the wall. I am sure there is something that would work out in one of the storage sheds, but since it is still about 15 degrees outside, I am not going to go spend 15 minutes looking for something. I am just going to stay in the house, and sit in front of the fire. This cardigan is another thrift store find. I haven’t been thrifting in a really long time, and I hope to remedy that soon. This cardigan is a man’s sweater, but that doesn’t stop me, and it shouldn’t stop you. Go ahead and raid your husband’s, brother’s, or best friend’s closet, you never know what you will find. Here is where I wore the cardigan earlier, not a lot different. This sweater is very similar, but would probably not have all the bulk that mine has. And here is the plus size version.
How do you like my Vera Bradley purse that Joe bought me? The one he didn’t know he bought! Hahaha I don’t think I have ever had a Vera purse, I have tote’s, scarves, eyeglass cases, and wallets. But, I have never been a huge fan of the printed purse. I had no idea that you could even get a leather purse by Vera. (we are on first name basis) My mouth dropped open when I saw it, and I think a little drool might have eeked out. I will tell you now, that I did not pay anything close to that price. Mine was less than half of that price, so if you are interested, it would be worth finding an outlet.
The necklace is by Premier designs. I like that it is so versatile with all the different colors. It was a little long for this outfit, so I took the chain and tied a knot in it. I have on a shirt with a collar and a cardigan, so no one is the wiser. Well almost no one, since all of you now know. Haha Here is a link to Ebay with a buy it now option for the necklace.
The belt just had to go, I am just not feeling like being confined today. I may not look as stylish, but I feel cooler. Really cooler, who knew that having the sweater belted tightly against my body would have been so much warmer. All together now, duhhhhh!
If you have followed my blog for a while, you know how I like to hang on to my clothes for years. Here, and here. My youngest child is 26, and the shirt I have on is a maternity shirt. Now, it is your turn to shut your mouth. Haha Here is a shirt from Old Navy, and here is one from Amazon that comes in every color in the rainbow.It is a good thing I have a pop of color in this outfit, otherwise I just blend right into the wall. Note to self, check the paint color of your background when picking out a cardigan.
