... And With The New

Cardigan and dress, J.Crew. Blouse, Banana Republic. Belt, vintage/mom's. Sunglasses, Winners. Flats, Ralph Lauren.

I hate to paraphrase but I don't remember where I read something along these lines: "Every woman's favorite outfit, if she's being honest, is her newest." Another thing I loathe is this type of generalization (see also: all women love romantic comedies, gay men are effeminate, all Asian people are smart) and fancy myself a unique sort of egg, but this orange cardigan is my newest purchase and I want to wear it all the time. What? No! All right, guy-who-wrote-that-phrase, I'll give you this one. But just so you know, I don't collect shoes (big feet), eat ice cream when I'm sad (lactose intolerance), and have never fantasized about my wedding day (cynicism). Bam. Bam!

P.S.: The über chic Lisa of Archives featured me here. I'm not worthy!

Why wouldn't you wear this orange cardigan every day? It's such a great piece.

And I hate that generalization too, except that I tend to love my newest clothes as well. But I still have some oldies but goodies.

The colors in your outfit are so happy and spring-y!

I hate generalizations, too. Heck, I'm Chinese and I can't do math to save my life!! A walking contradiction am I.

I love this outfit on you and don't care if you never take off that orange sweater (sort of like my tan boots right now). I guess it will be in your 30 x 30 items?

Now we have Where in the World in common, too! Heading over to read right now.

I think I'm kind of smart, but I'm definitely good with math. Haha! Oh, and I did take piano lessons growing up. Wait, that wasn't mentioned. And, this isn't about me.

Love that orange! In more recent years I've liked the combo of orange and blue (even though it was our rival high school's colors). Would you describe your dress as icy blue?
