A Hint of Gold

This sweater, my favorite Black Friday purchase has just the right touch of gold to it – something I’d wear to a cozy New Years Eve tucked into the mountains. I’m loving the lose fit and the nod to the high-low trend. A close second to the loose fitting neutral are these wine boots. They’re so comfortable and the color is so fun. I know every fashion blogger will tell you that style is more important than comfort, but maybe thats reason 48892 why I’m not a fashion blogger. When shopping the most common phrase I use is “ohhh, feel this!”I’m a sucker for anything soft, silky, or smooth. 

P.S. I turned in my 32 page thesis this morning on less than 2 hours of sleep and than whipped out another five page essay in under two hours. The 14 page research paper due tomorrow is another beast. That will be 50 pages turned in over two days. Why yes, I did write over 100 pages of papers this semester.

P.P.S. Have you entered this giveaway? Or booked your shoot? I’ve heard some of you have already scheduled your mini shoot with Kirsten – I know you’ll love your pictures as much as I do!

  11. LOVE those boots! And that sweater looks so cozy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Once upon a time when I was young and working in an office I was willing to sacrifice comfort for style. Those days are long gone. Being a stay at home mom means I get to be comfy all the time. (It doesn't however mean I live in workout clothes!) ๐Ÿ˜‰
