Wow, so it’s been a really really long time since I did an outfit post- over a month! I wore this outfit a couple of weekends ago, when I went to the coffee tasting and the Driscoll’s Holiday Craft Brunch. I knew that there were going to be kids at the brunch later, so I wanted to look cute, but still pretty covered up. Plus it’s getting cold anyway- definitely time to bust out the warm sweaters! I finished this sweater a few months ago, but didn’t get a chance to wear and photograph it until recently (dedicated On Nnenna’s Needles post coming soon!) I decided to put up my hair that day, just as a little change from my usual way of wearing it down and straight. Also, I’m still loving my ankle boots from DSW- they’re great to dress up an outfit a little, while still being comfortable. Speaking of ankle boots, the lovely Lydia snagged me a pair of adorable glitter ankle boots from TJ Maxx- I can’t wait to show them off here on the blog!

  • You made this sweater?!?! That is amazing. Can I pay you to teach me how to do clothes?? :)

    • Haha, I did! How about you don’t pay me and I can help you work on a knitted clothing item? :)

      • Yes, yes, yes!

        • Awesome! Let’s work on a project together after the new year :)

    Wow, I am amazed.

  • I feel like I’ve seen heart sweaters all over the place this season, and I’m loving them. I’m also pretty impressed that you made this one yourself! AND lastly I love your hair here. The braid is so pretty.

    • Thanks so much Jackie! Same, I saw lots of hearts sweaters around, but I needed a new knitting project so I decided to make my own! :)
