Feelin’ Cute

Do you ever have a day where you just feel cute? I really liked my outfit the other day. Maybe it was the fact that our weather has warmed up enough for me to be able to wear spring clothes. Maybe it was just having something new to wear. Or maybe it was actually the clothes. Whatever it was, my outfit made me happy.

I’ve been trying hard to put more thought into what I wear—making complete outfits rather than just throwing a top on. And, as I’ve said before, I’m really getting into the cardigan style. I’ve been wanting to buy some new ones, but had a hard time spending the money. I found this cute coral cardigan with thin white stripes at Target. Love it!

I paired it with a top I bought for Easter back in 2006. Loved it then, still love it now! You can’t really see it in the pictures, but I’m wearing a turquoise sequined cami under the top. It added just another pop of color at the waist. The necklace is another purchase from a while back. It took me over a year to finally start wearing it.

My jeans are Gap’s Long and Lean jeans that I also bought 5 years ago (love it when clothes last!). The shoes were also a new Target find—only $12.99 full price! How fun is that to wear an outfit made up of clothes that are almost all 5 years old, yet throw a new cardigan on and it all feels brand new.

I’ll be linking up with Nina’s Real Momma, Real Style. I love having a party to get me thinking about what I wear!
