I wore this blush cardigan three times in a row after I got it. It is so thick and cozy-so perfect for the below zero temps we've been having. Plus, when I travel I like to pack versatile items like that so that I don't have such a heavy suitcase (I'm a notorious over packer)!
And the shoot would not have been complete without showing my puffy coat! I couldn't be outside without it. It's been so cold I've even kept my students in from recess for the past two days because it has just been unbearable. I brought out lots of crafts and things for them to do inside instead! It's funny how kids get so excited to have indoor recess. They think it's something really special.
When in doubt, a simple blouse, skirt, and cardigan will always look great. It's such a classic combination that will never go out of style. I like that one can still be playful with that combination though- go crazy playing with colors and textures! It never hurts to try different proportions too. A look can be so different when paired with a chunky knit cardigan as opposed to a short, fitted cardigan. Each displays a different persona and style. Plus the accessories you add to it will make it unique to you! I really believe that accessories are sometimes more important to a style than even the type of clothing.
I can't get enough of the pearls on this blouse. Such a great detail, and I couldn't resist wearing my pearl ring to go with it! Give me pearls over diamonds any day-what kind of girl are you?
I got a welcome early morning wake up call from my sister in Uganda this morning! It was the best thing to wake up to. I haven't gotten to speak to her very much because they don't have internet everywhere and our hours are so far apart. Skype is a wonderful thing. I got to see her beautiful, radiant face and just talk about how life has been for the both of us. I can't wait until she's back and all three of us sisters and my mama can get together and gab on and on like old times. I know I talk about them a lot- but they're my best friends! I'm so very thankful for them :)
Hope you have a happy Wednesday :)
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
