What I Wore (Pinterest Inspired)


While thrifting over Christmas break, I came across a Burberry-esque scarf!  I've always wanted one, but the price tag of a legit Burberry?!  Not in the cards.

Anyway, I immediately went to Pinterest to look for ways to style it.  This pin caught my eye.......

I would not have thought to pair it with gray!  I wouldn't have to shop for anything.  All the elements of this pin were in my closet......

riding boots  ///  Gap elbow patch sweater

But wait!  It gets better.

The elbow patches of the sweater match the scarf perfectly.........


I had wanted an elbow patch sweater forever.  I found this one online (on sale) awhile back.  Now I wish I'd purchased every single color.

But there's that New Year's Resolution to simplify.  Not be a hoarder.  Save money.

Blah, blah, blah.... 













MIX MATCH

  8. You look great! I like to color combo a lot. I've recently been trying to mix neutrals lately too. Not sure if I'm succeeding as well as you are though.
    We decided that we'll be going to Alaska in August for me and my twins brothers (why can't I write that correctly, help teacher!) 30th. So now it's going to be sell sell sell, save money blah blah blah. We can blah blah blah together. : )
