What I Wore Sunday: rust + navy gingham

Sunday, February 24, 2013

 
 
 
 
Stephen informed me that I looked like a "country girl" today, which not exactly what I was going for...I've been trying to remix things in my closet more, and I liked the way this rust colored cardi complemented the navy blue gingham. Also, I've been wearing these Hunter boots non-stop lately...I know that they're technically rain boots but they work equally well in our mounds of snow.
 
 
 
 This cardi is literally 5 years old (and for you grammar people, I know that I just misused the world literally...sorry). I love 're-discovering' something that's been in your closet for a long time, but not worn for awhile. The burnt orange color along with the little ruffle and matching pearl buttons made this one of my fav sweaters for a long time. And this navy gingham shirt was a stellar Forever 21 find. I loved the J. Crew version but no way was I spending $80 on it, and this one is super similar.
 
Cardi: J. Crew (way old)
Denim pencil: J. Crew Factory (old)
Gingham: Forever 21
Boots: Hunter
 
After we got home from church, Stephen went ice-fishing with my dad and brothers (I'm not sure how they're going to get to the fish underneath a gazillion feet of snow and ice). I'll be nursing my cold-turned-bronchitis (thank you, pediatrics rotation) wrapped in a blanket with a cup of tea while I study for my peds exam.
 
As always, joining Fine Linen and Purple. for What I Wore Sunday. Also linking up with Plane Pretty and My Style Monday. Happy Sunday!

  3. Oh, goodness. I could never work in pediatrics. I get a bug just looking at a toddler! Lol. My hubby volunteered in pediatrics for a while and was fine, but me- uh, no. Country girl or not, you look cute!

  4. So good to see I am not the only one having to plough through the snow!Okay, I can tell from the picture you have more snow overthere. I love the squared blouse with the ruffled vest. I have some squared shirts but have trouble combining them with something feminine. And the boots... I guess they look country. But falling over with high heels in the snow wouldn't be more elegant... citygirl in the snow ;-). Guess men prefer high heels?

  6. Buying a pair of Hunters is on my "list" for sure! I'm debating between the green, red, and black and I just don't know which one to choose!

  11. If the boots keep your feet warm and dry, then it does not matter one bit that they are not actually snow boots.

  13. I did not think of country girl when I saw your photos. LOL Oh, husbands...they are so adorable. My husband told me I looked Victorian one day, and I was puzzled. hahaha

    I found you on Plane Pretty and I've added you to my RSS feed (Google Reader)!

  14. Ohh, I love all these colors together! You look great, and if it's country at all, it definitely falls in the "glamorous country" category!

  16. Don't you just love boys commentary on clothes??? I think you look great! I have that same cardigan in teal and I've worn it like crazy! I think this is a fun outfit and it's given me some inspiration for my gingham top :)

  20. All the gingham is getting me excited for spring, and I usually prefer my winter wardrobe. Your outfit MIGHT look a little bit country, but it looks a lot a bit cute.
