I always think about the week between Christmas and New Year’s as this very reflective time, when I try to take stock of what’s happened in the past year and what my hopes and goals are for the coming one. I feel so incredibly lucky that every year seems to get better and better, and I hope that 2012 is going to be the same way.
It doesn’t seem like it could possibly be New Year’s, though, because I’m still in shorts most weekends! It’s funny to watch so many Texans break out their heavy coats and gloves when it dips into the fifties, but at least this year, I’m enjoying leaving mine at home. I’d rather be chilly in shorts, thank you very much!
But that’s enough nostalgia — and now onto the outfit! This sweater is actually from the swap we did during my trip to New York with Payless, and it originally belonged to Andrea! I’m a sucker for soft, comfy fabrics, and I’ve been wearing it nonstop.
The jacket is from C. Wonder and almost sold out (they have online shopping now)! It’s such a unique piece, but it actually goes with so much! I love throwing it over a black dress for work or with a contrasting-pattern blouse for a night out. Love!
