Remember my January spending freeze? Well, I broke it on February first by buying this sweater. I haven’t purchased any other clothes since (I’m feeling pretty proud of myself…), but I just had to have this one. I think that’s been my favorite part about the freeze. Now when I buy something it’s because I reallllllllly want it.
It also makes what I buy feel more special because it’s not one piece in a large shopping trip. It’s making me be more creative with my closet and I hope you’re enjoying seeing some of my favorite pieces re-worn and re-styled. It’s a little tricky as a fashion blogger, but it also feels refreshing.
Right before I saw this sweater for the first time, I saw this little blazer on Nordstrom. I was crushed when it was $2,800, or maybe just flabbergasted. Then an hour later, I saw this sweater and considering it’s under $100, it felt like it was meant to be!
I’m definitely going to wear it in a casual way and I think it will be cute in the summer, too, with espadrilles. For the photos, I paired it with a skirt I got from Uniqlo last year. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available; I found a similar full navy skirt that would be just as cute.
How absolutely darling are those ribbon sleeves and ruffled collar?
