Basic Black and White

Sweater: Goodwill Blouse: Goodwill Shorts: Salvation Army

Nothing beats wearing an over sized boyfriend sweater on a gloomy day. It almost feels like I'm wrapped in a fashionably acceptable blanket. And I just adore the print on this sweater, it's bit tribal without going overboard. I also found these tights in the bottom of my sock drawer this morning and almost jumped for joy. They are knitted cotton and the comfiest pair of tights you will ever wear. Sometimes I'll wear them under pants for a little bit of warmth - on a side note, if it's below 70 degrees I am freezing, I swear I'm cold blooded. Actually, when I went to the doctor my temperature was a cool 97.7, maybe I'm on to something here.

Solitary Consignment wrote such a cute piece on me yesterday. I have to admit it made be blush a bit. She can stalk me any time she wants to!

Oooh, love that tribal print! Then again, I love tribal so much, I think there's no such thing as overboard. If you were wearing that with tribal pants I'd still think it was awesome.

this is such a sweet outfit. i ADORE that cardigan. i very cool swedish brand called Patouf has a similar one (but shorter/more fitted - but similar sort of black/white pattern) that doesn't come out til the fall... was drooling over it a bit - but now feel like i want to find one like yours from the goodwill! can i please come over and raid your closet?? oh, and i'm not kidding - yesterday it was 63 F here and i went absolutely insane and wore a blue/white polka dot strapless with bare legs, laid out in the park all day, and got a bit of a sunburn. i was in heaven. in england - that's like our summer! haha. xx
