Found in Nature

Cardigan: J. Crew Outlet
Skirt: thrifted, Mondele
Belt: thrifted, Mercanté for Nordstrom
Tights: Target
Shoes: Naturalizer

I love wearing blues and greens...these colors feel so peaceful. If I could decorate our home any way I wanted, the palette would consist of olive, turquoise, teal, etc. Today I wanted to wear this blue belt that I thrifted recently, and although, of course, it would pop against yellow or red or a neutral, I really liked the idea of pairing it with this cardigan so it would pick up some of the blue from the print and create a sort of peplum effect. I was afraid the bottom of the cardigan would bunch up too much, but it worked out okay, I think because the skirt has a yoke at the top so the cardigan could more easily lie flat over it. Wow, I just noticed that the front of my hair is doing something weird in this photo and all my photos for today. I was going to try to switch to a different photo after I saw it in this one, but it's inescapable. 


  1. I really like this combination, the blue belt was a perfect choice! I love your tights too, another great pattern-mix :D
    I have this chair that I got at an auction in all the colours you mentioned. It's a round wicker one with a plastic 60s floral cover! With some searching, I bet you could totally redecorate in all those colours for very little money ;)

  2. My friend Alice says, "Oh my god she has the best style!" ::in a British accent::

  3. Really love the floral cardigan, and it looks wonderful with the skirt! You look lovely.
