Fair Isle Pastels

Fair Isle Sweater- Kensie
Top- H&M
Skinny Jeans- Divine Rights of Denim
Riding Boots- Payless
Bracelets- 31Bits
Brown Belt- Forever 21
Initial Ring- Urban Outfitters

     I have to admit something... I stole this sweater. Okay well, I didn't "technically" steal it but it sure felt like it! I was browsing Nordstorm Rack one random afternoon and this sweater literally fell off the hanger and into my arms! I decided to hang on to it and try it on and it was the softest sweater with the prettiest pastel fair isle print I had ever seen! So naturally I decided to get it. Can you believe my surprise when I noticed that it was only $16!?! 16 marked down from $98! Score! 

     So when we had a rainy Saturday morning recently I knew it was the perfect thing to pull out. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to belt it and still make it look loose and flowing but I liked how it turned out. Don't ask me why I cuffed one sleeve and not the other, I blame the rain! 

     These bracelets were also picked up that very morning at the 31 Bits warehouse sale. Boyfriend kindly let me go do some browsing while he enjoyed a free cup of joe and I picked up a handful of these pretty beads and one gorgeous necklace! One of the things I love about living where I do, is that there is always a fun event to go to or sale in a hidden building to be found. Since we have moved here we haven't had a dull weekend yet! I even managed to make cinnamon pancakes from scratch one Sunday. Yumm!!

  6. Wanna trade houses? Where I live there never seem to be great sales and there are no pretty undiscovered buildings. And there sure aren't any Nordstroms where the clothes I will love just fall into my arms, haha! I just love this cardigan thingy! It has the prettiest colours indeed :) x
