I woke up not sure what to wear, but Kimberly’s inspiration calendar suggested “layering a vest”, so that’s what I did. Technically, I suppose it’s a tank top, but there’s enough positive ease that I easily wear this thing over shirts and blouses all the time. It’s the first fitted garment I knit, and although it’s dead simple, I’m terribly proud of it. I know lots of knitters who’d never think about wearing their first garments out in public!
I thought I would try out the bold necklace with a structured blouse style I’ve seen look quite hot on others. Turns out I really like this look! I need to pick myself up about 87 more statement necklaces.
I’d been wanting shoes like this for at least a year, and recently found a pair at Target for under $30. Tia looked rather smokin’ in her oxfords last week; she got hers at Payless. Apparently, now is the time to grab a reasonably priced!
