For whatever reason, I frequently forget about the existence of this cardigan. I don't know why - it's a great weight, 50/50 cotton & linen, with a flattering shape and a pretty floral pattern. I rediscovered it in the closet this morning while trying to find something spring-like to wear with our delightful high of 58 degrees today. What doesn't show in the picture below is that in addition to the coral and olive in the cardigan's pattern, there's also a bit of yellow.
Cardigan: Lane Bryant
Tie-neck Blouse: Kohl's
Knit jeans: Coldwater Creek
None of my jewelry is pictured here, but I went very simple with it today - my gold graduation watch from my dad, my wedding, engagement, & anniversary rings, and the gold & diamond hoop earrings that were my 40th birthday gift to myself on St. Thomas.
I LOVE these Coldwater Creek knit jeans; they are ridiculously comfortable, and wash and wear quite well (no pilling or fading!). I scoffed at them a bit before I bought them - KNIT jeans? Really? - but they were a godsend with the boot on my leg, and continue to be a great option for work and weekend wear.
Speaking of The Foot, I'm slowing regaining strength through physical therapy. I've been able to wear sandals and flats on occasion, but I still need the stability and support of lace-up shoes most of the time. Hopefully with more hard work on my part, I'll be able to transition to a more balanced array of shoes soon. I do miss my dresses.
