It has been so bitterly cold here lately that taking outfit pictures is just not even possible, at least not outside which is definitely what I prefer. I've been putting together all these cute outfits, going out to take pictures and quickly returning without any pictures. I'm so happy I got a chance to photograph this one!
I'm super crazy about this shirt/cardigan combo. I'd been eying up the cardigan forever, on a multitude of websites too! I resisted buying with the reasoning that I wouldn't know what to wear with it, it's kind of strange colors and I normally like my cardigans a bit more fitted. But I've actually had a ton of luck with it already. I'm really glad I finally bought it. Even better I'm kind of glad I waited so long and got it on super sale because let's be real here - getting things for really cheap makes them way better.
Speaking of cheap, this shirt! $1.99! I love how the stripes are all vertical except by the buttons where they run horizontally. I wish it was vintage since vintage clothing really does tend to wash better and last longer but it's so pretty I couldn't resist. It's Tommy Hilfiger, which literally means nothing to me but it does make me giggle every time I see the tag because I remember when I was younger my grandma always used to say "Tommy Hill-finger".
