Marianne: Try again.

This sweater never sold, and so I decided to try it one more time. I love the color, but when I bought it I was heavier and I never liked how it looked over my fuller chest. But things have, ah, deflated a bit, so that wasn't an issue any longer.
I also thought the sweater was a touch too short to wear with pants, and I wear jeans a lot. I mean, I real whole lot. But then I found this skirt at the Gap and with the promotion they had going I think I paid all of $14 for it? It runs big and if I wanted to wear it with something tucked in I'd need to have the waist taken in, but I really quite liked it with this sweater after all.
Lulu likes it too, though she thinks the textured tights are weird.
Not the most exciting outfit, and it could stand to be accessorized, but I felt pretty danged happy with it. In fact, I'm thinking about wearing this tonight for Christmas Eve dinner.

Merry Christmas, you guys! Or happy whatever holiday you celebrate, if you do celebrate. Eat some good food.

  1. That shade of teal is really beautiful on you. I'm jealous of your white coat. I would love one, but it would be stained and disgusting the first time I wore it. I'm a slob that way.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Marianne!
