This sweater is magical when it comes to summer dresses. Its light colors match all the soft summer shades, and its mustard and brick red stripes somehow transforms it into a cozy fall look. Thank you men's section, you've let me struck gold once again!

And this vintage dress it one of my all time favorites.  It's grey and is made out of a stiff material, making me feel like I have a floral suit of armor on. And one needs armor when it's a Monday :)

  9. That truly is a magical sweater - the colors are so pretty, and I love how you've matched it with the mustard yellow blouse underneath your dress. Once again, you've established your title as Print-Mixing Queen! :)

  12. Men's section sweaters are always amazing! And there is nothing really that differentiates mens/ womens in this department either. I get glares from men at thrift stores when I am scooping up all the oversized mens gems. You look adorable :)
