Christmas Garland Sweater

In a stroke of good luck and after an hour's wait on line through a thunderstorm I found this perfectly pom-pommed sweater at a sample sale. Its the softest pine tree green yarn and reminds me of Christmas tree garland. Last week while I prepared for the party and finished my Christmas shopping I wore this for three days. It was very holiday appropriate and perfect for recent lazy dressing habits.
Also, I started styling my hair differently with some waves in it that I put in with a round brush and blow dryer. What do you think?

  1. Gosh that is a steal! Such a gorgeous color and beautiful detail. Chicago needs more sample sales!

  2. You look so beautiful! I love that sweater, it really suits you :)

  3. The sweater is really cute, looks good on you. And also, the new hair style is cute! Maybe you can do a tutorial if you have time? I'd like know how to style my hair that way, too.

  4. I think your hair looks super pretty all wavy like this! Your outfit is also adorable, as usual. I really love that corduroy skirt whenever you wear it.

  5. Thats a really good idea! I could totally make a tutorial, its super easy too.

  6. I always check Racked for sample sales and also I sign up for emails from my favorite stores so I always get the inside scoop. http://chicago.racked.com/ I think they should have a list for you of upcoming sample sales. :)

  7. Thank you!!!! Fun story about my skirt: I got in trouble for wearing it to work because its obscenely short thanks to a trip through a dryer. So I will often wear it from Friday night through Sunday hahaha.

    Such a pretty look! I just love that sweater!:)

  9. LOVE. That sweater is amaze. And I love the cropped sweater/skater skirt look. It is my go-to look lately. So easy, so flattering! I need to be more like you and simplify my wardrobe. At the moment it's a chaotic mess. And I looove your hair, but I always love your hair no matter how it's styled, so.


Thanks for stopping by!
