Hope everyone is having a great weekend! We spent the morning cleaning frantically for another showing... one good thing about selling the house is it has never been so clean. Afterward my husband and I desperately needed some caffeine so we took the kids out to shop and grab Starbucks, and this is what I wore. I bought the giant bow sweater on popback right before Christmas. At first I was concerned because it seemed so short...I measured it against the Tippi sweater and it's a good 2 inches shorter than that. For sizing reference, this is a size small, which is my normal J.Crew size. After I got used to the shorter length I kind of fell in love. I mean, I know the giant-ness of the bow was too much for some ladies. But for me, being a lover of all things kitschy and cutesy, it is perfect. And how fun does it look with plain old jeans and boots? I think it is so much fun! I topped it with my wool crepe shawl collar blazer:

I have gotten a lot of use out of this fun, bright blazer. It was a good purchase for me.
By the way, this is my hair au naturale...air dried, with a little Bumble & Bumble hair tonic and serum. It has some natural wave but not much frizz...I kind of like it. Thanks for reading!
