{Fashion} Coral + Stripes

Black knit dress: Nordstrom (2 years ago!)
Striped sweater: Meadow Boutique
Cable knit leggings: Meadow Boutique
Belt: Target
Boots: Steve Madden
Hair: Spiral Waves Tutorial


Well, it certainly ain't fancy Oscar attire, but stripes and coral are two of my favorite things! When I found this sweater last week at Meadow {and there was one left in my size. Fate, I tell you. Fate.}, I knew it needed me. Or I needed it...whichever ;) I layered the striped sweater over a simple long sleeved, black, knit dress.  A belt polished it off and added definition. My favorite part about the outfit is that it's super warm and cozy, while still colorful and stylish. The cold weather really gets me up here in Seattle, so I'm a happy gal when I can put together looks that are practical without sacrificing the cute factor. Let's face it, your day has a way higher chance of being terrific if you're feeling terrific. That's my life moto :)


Are you loving stripes just as much as me lately?
I'm really excited about what's going on here at the blog this week. I have a fun announcement tomorrow, a DIY project coming Thursday, and a giveaway on Friday {hint: my favorite home store}. There should be something for everyone!
Happy Monday...
Love,

  1. Love your sweater! This time of year those types of cardis are perfect for here. It is cool in the morning, but warms up as the day goes on.

  3. You look so beautiful!! That sweater is PERFECT :) I think a lot of people only buy cardigans in basic colors so that they're more versatile, but punchy cardigans are so much more fun!

  12. Cute cardy but I'm really in love with your boots! Living in QLD, Australia means boots are worn about 3 weeks a year - a problem with living in a warm climate!

  16. I just love your outfit. I have a sweater that is very similar the stripes are a bit smaller than yours though. I love it too. It is perfect to wear when I know it is going to be a bit chilly.
