I'd Rather Be Here...

Excuses, excuses...What can I say but sorry for being so MIA lately! I stink...i know!

I'd rather be here right now:

Things have been hectic around here lately. Not just the usual, I have twenty different things to do tonight kinda hectic, but something deeper. I've been thinking about a lot of things lately and those things being changes. Change can be a scary thing...especially when the change can be so big. Guess I'm just trying to figure out what I want to do with my life and where I want to go. I'm confronted with big scary questions like, "Do I still want to persue my jewelry biz..." Yucky stuff like that that makes me wish I was on a big beach somewhere without a care in the world. Anywho, I did manage to squeeze a small shopping trip with one of my girlfriends into the weekend yesterday and got a little something-something I hope to share this week. Till then, take care friends!

What's Black & White & Yellow All Over?

Sorry I've been a bit MIA, but if you only knew what a trainwreck my home is right now, you would totally understand. This past weekend, I got a couple bookcases off of craigslist and spent the entire weekend organizing them and also making jewelry for an upcoming sale I have this Friday.

This is going to be a crazy busy week for me, but here's a quick outfit shot for something I threw together:

Skirt: Steinmart?
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft (just scored it off the sale rack for $20!)
Shoes: Vintage Ferragamos

Must Shop: The Boyfriend Sweater

I've long been a fan of layers - especially cardigans - since I get cold rather easily. So, you can imagine how happy I was to hear that cardigans were "in" for this season. I suppose the "boyfriend sweater" has been "in" for awhile now (remember this?), but let's just say I'm happy that they're still popular and the stores are still selling them.

My newly tight budget has had me looking even closer and more often at more affordable shops like Target and Forever 21, but I am loving the boyfriend sweaters currently available at Old Navy:

Women's "Boyfriend" Cardigans - $20 on sale from $29.50!!

Girls, I have to say, I think these sweaters are a STEAL at only $20!! I have the sweater pictured above in the same color - "Monaco Plum." It is super comfy and the material is sooo soft! The cut is nice, too - not too baggy and boy-like. You want to look cute in your boyfriend cardi...not like you're wearing your cute boyfriend's I right? This cardigan has a nice, feminine fit - slim through the waist so you can add a belt to your look for extra flair. I also am a fan of the slightly longer-than-normal sleeves b/c I like to pull them over my keep them warm...and probably as a bad

Anywho, dress this cardi up or dress it down...wear it for play or for'll love rocking this cardigan out. And, at this price, why not rock out a couple different colors?! :) I'm eyeing "Powered Milk" (off-white)...

Cardigan: Old Navy (duh!)
Skinny Jeans: Guess
Tank: Banana Republic
Pink Patent Leather Mary Janes: J Crew
