Don't Sweater It

Do you ever have those days when you have so many ideas for outfits that you just simply cannot pick one? Me. Today.
 I usually keep a list of four to five looks that I want to wear sometime in a two-week timeframe. However, today was an exception. I am more often than not, at the package center on south campus and Blush Boutique's timing was impeccable. 
In fact, I was on the hunt for a cropped sweater to layer my button-downs with for the winter, and this one I'm wearing satisfies me on all levels. For starters, it's a bit loose aka feasible for layering, and it's not itchy or static-y. Check and check.

Sidenote: Today is the launch party of Carrie Grace's The Necklace Club for 2015. I am so honored to launch it with her and a few other bloggers around the blogosphere today. Basically, you will receive a new necklace every month for a year in your mailbox!
Use code: 2015 for $30 OFF or sign up for $16 a MONTH.

A little memo on Carrie Grace: she's an amazing and inspirational gal who lives here in the Triangle area that I have yet to meet. She's literally ALL SMILES and I always visit her Instagram whenever I'm having a bad day. Seriously just love her positive outlook on everything.
