what i wore {fluffy and flannel}

A big blanket on my back.  I love it.  this is a super cozy sweater that I feel somehow is still flattering.  that makes me happy.  a MOPS morning and then a hectic work afternoon.


my undershirt is so soft.  do you know Splendid clothing?  its always great comfort and fit, mostly basics but some flair.  its a little bit of an investment, but you can often find it at Nordstrom Rack.


yep.  same bottom combo as last week.  and maybe a few times in between.  if it works I kind of just go with it for a while. 


I spotted this pearl and sequin vintage trim and had to do something with it.  I added it to a thick piece of raw edged dark leather.  then a snap and now its a bracelet.  I love the mix of tough leather with the sweet, old-fashioned, and a little bit fancy trim.  we will see how it holds up {before I can think of selling it on the site}.  love the test phase.

sweater - the clothing co, shopruche.com {from last year}
white shirt - splendid
jeans - J brand
boot socks - old
boots - frye (on sale here!)
earrings - Lucia K. Jewelry
bracelets - Lucia K. Jewelry

***
Warning:  Sadly, there are dishonest websites using a photo of me in this sweater, and selling knockoffs.  Even though it is my picture, they do not have permission, and I can not validate these sites or the quality of the product.  If my picture is used to advertise this sweater, I would recommend not purchasing from that website!

so many of you have been asking, the sweater above isn't available anymore.  Here are 3 very similar and in my opinion just as fabulous.  Best part, they are an additional 40% off with code TAGTIME

  11. So glad I finally found the original post for this pin!!! The second picture of you (in the slouchy sweater) looks so much like me I had it as my facebook profile pic for a while and I had a hard time convincing people (including my children) it wasn't me. Alas...you are only my twin when looking down while pushing your hair behind your ear ;)

  15. Hi there...did you know that these photos of you are used on the Dress Lily site advertising this sweater? I made the mistake of ordering from them and the sweater is probably somewhat similar but is sized very tiny. This company is in China I should have known better than to make purchase as I am stuck with a sweater way too small for me. I should have researched them a little as I am only seeing negative reviews. :( Just wanted to let you know they are using your photo to lure people in with the way you look wearing their similar item. I do enjoy your style immensely!

    3. Lesson learned! Just thought the person they are using to represent their product should be aware! Hope this may save someone else the disappointment and headache.
