This morning, I didn’t like anything in my closet. I tried on about nine different outfits, and hated every single one. I only settled on this because I was running out of time, if I didn’t want to be late going into the office. However, by the time I got in and looked at the photos, and at myself again, I liked it more and more.
This shirt, Bombshell from Big Girl Knits, was knit specifically to pack for the rockabilly festival. Its pin-up inspired curves were exactly what I wanted in a spring (or fall) sweater. It’s knit with KnitPicks Shine, which is a totally lovely yarn to work with. I may also do this sweater again in a yummy wool, with longer sleeves and hemline for winter.
Last weekend, Matt and I went on an errand-running day of adventure, part of which was spent at DSW. Matt always comes out with more shoes than I do, but I did manage to snag two pair of boots, all for under $150, including this pair of western-style ankle boots. They are super comfortable! The heel has a nice give to it, so when I’m walking it’s not all “clack clack clack” along the ground, making it easier on my feet. I want to wear these boots with every outfit.
