Warm Winter: Stripes & Boots

We had a fantastic weekend.  The weather was great (in the high 60's) and my husband and I got to spend lots of time together.  We celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday Friday (see us here) and then we had an early movie date to see Zero Dark Thirty on Saturday.  We ended the weekend with breakfast in bed and a lazy Sunday.  I wore this to the movies on Saturday.
Dress: Old Navy (on sale $8); Sweater: Calvin Klein (old)
Sunglasses: Cynthia Rowley

Necklace: Street Vendor in Cabo (2011)
Earrings: Flea Market find
Purse: Vintage

Cuff: So Good Jewelry (2011)

This sweater is so old and you can tell it's seriously pilling, but I love it so much and I can't get rid of it.  I've tried replacing it before, but I haven't found anything I like as much as this oversized and comfy sweater.  I always end up giving the replacements away or just donating them.

How do you go about replacing beloved items that are not available anymore?


  1. What a cute striped dress! I am guilty of holding onto items for way to long even if it's past its prime.

  2. You look adorable! I love this look. And about my nude pumps, I think they match my skin so easily because I am so fair. I guess being fair skinned finally does have a benefit?

    And replacing items is not fun. Normally I end up not being able to replace them and move on to my next favorite item.


  3. Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I know I need to let it go, but I really, really can't. :(

  4. So so jealous to see bare legs in the winter! Loving the stripes.

  5. Thanks, Cait! We're back in pants this week. ;)


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
