Me. Awful, I know. You can’t blame a girl for trying! Well, I guess you can but shhh… look at the pictures.
This lovely sweater came to me from Rebecca. I saw it on the Evans website last fall but wasn’t willing to shell out the cash for something I wasn’t sure about. So when she had this up for sale last month, I took the chance. Thanks Rebecca!
I love the look and feel of this sweater – the stripes, soft material, detail and colors. The arms are probably my favorite part. The sweater is meant to fit loosely and the fitted sleeves keep it from being too overwhelming. I have a tendency to push up the sleeves on cardigans and jackets, but these work better down. I know I wasn’t entirely successful since I caught myself pushing them up in a picture! Habits are hard to break. It was a little shorter than I expected and the draping in front causes a little too much airflow for a cold day, so I wore the belt. But really… I’ll use any excuse to wear a red belt!
Since pulling this skirt out for Five Take, I’ve been wearing it a lot. Funny how you can get reminded of a piece of clothing, then become obsessed with it. I’m sure there is more where it came from… I think my closet multiplies without my help.
Speaking of Five Take, I completely missed last week because I never got the photos because I was too busy having fun. And I might have also forgot my camera in the car… Once I do laundry, I’ll remedy that – promise!
Have you found any forgotten gems in your closet?
