Color from the Block
Well...I'll be honest. This was the outfit I WANTED to wear last weekend...but after it dumped a little bit of snow and a lot of ice on us...big heavy boots were more called for. So instead I just dressed up for the sake of dressing up during my kids nap time. What. You guys don't do that? You should. I believe in playing dress-up just as much as an adult as you did when you were a kid. It's too fun not to! This sweater I totally stole from my mom's closet when I was visiting California. That place is like a thrift store** in itself...she keeps EVERYTHING. I actually found a bright pink blazer that I loved...but the 80's Dallas style shoulder pads were not happenin'. She's taking them out for me, though! Hooray for free clothes!
This is also being featured on Marionberry Style today for her color blocking challenge! I feel so honored! Have you all read her blog yet? She is one of the most funny, sweet, and genuine bloggers that I have come across in both my fashion and DIY home blog worlds. And let us not forget she also has killer style! Check it out here!
** Note: I want to clarify something....my mother's closet is not like a dirty, dingy, dusty, ugly thrift store. It is more like a boutique of vintage treasures. I like/love/want everything in there...and have stated so above...so CLEARLY I did not mean that in any negative way. I just meant that there is a lot of cool stuff in her closet that is free for me. I apologize if I have offended anyone or given anybody the wrong idea. Again...it is a collection of wonderfully enchanting goods, a treasure trove of high quality pieces, a plethora of beautiful items. Ok...I hope that is somewhat cleared up.**
