pink lady

fair isle sweater/cords/chambray shirt~the gap
faux fur collar~ taken off an old sweater
nude patent shoes~steve madden
wow, i don't think i've worn an entire outfit from the gap since tenth grade! last night i tried to plan out what i was going to wear but the outfit i put together in my head didn't work in real life. as a result i was scrambling around trying to figure out something to throw on. this is what i came up with. the sweater is the same one i wore with my rodarte dress but in a different color. and yes, i will totally buy multiples of something if i really like it, especially if it's on super clearance:) i've been lusting after a pair of cords since the jcrew matchstick cords made their debut in the fall catalog. i never made it in to buy them(and i can't buy pants online because i'm always worried about the fit) so when i ran across this hot pink pair i had to have them. apparently chambray/denim shirts are making a comeback. i think for my dad and men of a certain generation they never really left:) i love how ruffles on this one make it a little girly. i added the faux fur collar on a whim after seeing it in the closet as i was getting my coat.
don't let the sun in these pictures fool's cold! but i'll take sunny and cold over dreary and cold any day. i'm having lunch with my mom today, followed by a short meeting and dinner this evening with one of my best friends from high school. the plan is to change before going out but just in case i run out of time i think this look is good for dinner and drinks at a favorite indian restaurant. have a happy wednesday!


  1. Work it girl! Your outfit is the best example I've seen of a fair Isle sweater! Looks good with the pink pants!
