I'm still on that sweater kick I mentioned. I see no end in sight. How did I even go this long hating on sweaters?! I actually didn't like this one the first time I tried it on. Buuut that was most likely because I hadn't showered yet for the day, had the gnarliest morning hair (which is definitely a daily thing. I'm talking bangs straight in the air errrrday!), and was still wearing pajamas pants. So when I put on the sweater and looked in the mirror I was disappointed it didn't somehow turn me into a pretty pretty princess with perfect hair. Anyway, after a shower, the sweater and I fell in love. It's so cozy and that color looks awesome with my hair color! I'm going to be kind of bummed when it gets too warm to wear sweaters again.

  1. I see people from up north wearing only a couple layers during the winter and I'm down here in Austin wearing 5 layers when it's not even as cold as up there. How do you guys do it?!

    1. That's because you're used to super hot weather so even something a little bit less is shocking to your system. It gets warm here but it also gets really cold, I've lived here my whole life so it's totally normal.

  19. That color DOES look perfect with your hair! This is my favorite hair color on you -- it just seems like it's meant to be. I feel you on the sweater weather, I will be sad to retire mine as well.

  20. This is such an awesome outfit even though it's essentially a simple sweater and jeans combination. I love the fun colors and the polka dot jeans. Your striped shirt layered underneath the yellow sweater looks awesome. I really like that pin you're wearing too. This is just such a cute and comfy-looking outfit while still being unique.

  21. the close up photo of you looking right into the camara is the most beautiful photo I have seen of you yet... so gorgeous!

  22. I love all of the details you put into your outfits!!
