How to be colorful and stay warm...all at the same time...
I almost didn't blog this outfit because I was feeling blah this morning, but I decided to after I realized how much I love this color orange. It is tangelo in the cashmere turtleneck. It is way cold here and I needed something warm. Thank goodness for cashmere. I have had no pilling issues with this particular sweater...although I have in the past with other J. Crew cashmere/dream items. The pants are buttercup surplus chinos.
The necklace is from the January 2008 catalog. My hubby calls it my witch necklace. He HATES it. I think he actually liked that wedding dress I posted about yesterday more than this necklace. My teacher buddy laughed when I told him of Jim's extreme hatred and quipped, "whose soul do you keep in there?" To which I quipped back, "my former roommate (oh was that guy AWFUL)." Later on in the day, another coworker said, "I love your necklace...how chic." I guess this necklace is either black or white, you love it or you hate it!
The shoes are some Lauren driving mocs I bought a few years ago!
I always pose with CW...so I decided today it was Rex's turn. I picked up his massive 35 pounds (he isn't even two yet) and posed. He is at the age where he doesn't pose. Oh, well. Even with a sippy cup, he is still cute!
