outfit of the day(bird): the necklace sweater




sweater~ vintage, gift from gracey
dress~ F21
leggings~ Target
boots~ Alloy
hat~ old

the lovely gracey, of Fashion For Giants, sent megan and i this sweater way back in november and i cannot believe it hasn't made it onto the blog until now. it is seriously the prettiest vintage sweater, with gorgeous beading around the collar and cuffs and two birds (yay!) beaded on the front. i was wearing this short-sleeved dress yesterday and it needed an extra layer. when i saw the sweater in my closet, i immediately knew i wanted to wear it. i wasn't sure how it would look over the dress, but i actually think the different patterns and textures somehow work really well together. and when i came downstairs wearing it, mimi literally gasped in delight. she named it "the necklace sweater" and proclaimed it the most beautiful sweater i have ever worn (which is totally true!) and it comfy and warm, to boot! so, thank you gracey. not only for the sweater, but for making my kid think i am cool, if even for a day!

sweater details:
two birds!

    I love the whole outfit and it works very well together, but pardon me if I'm drooling over the boots. Those are totally serious!

  28. yesterday was a busy day for me so I missed this post of your Nora! Fabulous sweater and I too love Mimi's name for it. Makes perfect sense! And ...you my dear are very creative and styling it right with the use of a dress as a skirt. So give yourself all that wonderful CREDIT!
