Popcorn and Pleats

Sweater: thrifted
Blouse: thrifted
Skirt: hand-me-down from my aunt
Socks: Forever 21
Shoes: Naturalizer

It’s raining on and off today, so I thought I’d wear my favorite thrifted sweater ever. I’ve worn it on this blog once before, here. I love it so much! I think it’s an ’80s sweater, but it seems kind of ’50s to me. I should wear it more. This is ridiculous, but I think I don’t reach for it more often because it’s a little difficult to pull on. I have to put both arms into the sleeves at the same time and wriggle it over my boobs because the waistband doesn’t stretch much.

I worked from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. yesterday proofreading and editing copy for an e-commerce site, so today I’m going to be lazy and read. I might be obnoxious and go read in a coffee shop, and by coffee shop I mean Starbucks because I have a Starbucks gift card. I’m excited about the project I just finished, though, because it could possibly lead to a full-time writing and editing job at a very cool company where my friend Ani recently started working.


  1. I don't think reading in a coffee shop is obnoxious! I have big plans to go and finish my presentation in a coffee shop tomorrow.

    Oh, and I love this sweater... you should definitely reach for it whenever possible!

  2. Reading in a coffee shop sounds lovely! I've been reading in my room for most of this super rainy day, actually.
    Anyway, that is a lovely sweater! And the pleated skirt is wonderful :)

  3. Such an adorable outfit as always. The collar with the sweater is wonderful. I also struggle with having the energy to put on some pieces, therefore ignoring them on most days...such a pain. Anyways, I adore this look!

  4. That sweater really is lovely :) In the past few months, I've gotten obsessed with pouring over the sweater racks when I got thrifting. I used to sort of just casually peruse, but there are so many gems hidden away. I basically love everything about this outfit :)

  5. That sweater is awfully pretty. And woah, go you for working so long! You certainly deserve a pat on the back.

    and I find I like doing things at coffee shops like reading and blogging. Something about the atmosphere, you know?

    xoxo mama wolf.

  6. this is absolutely adorable, that sweater!! I am addicted to sweaters but the warmer weather won't let me wear them :(

  7. i wish i could read in coffeeshops! i get so easily distracted by other noises that i can't concentrate and i end up reading the same page over and over again.

    this is such an adorable outfit; the pleated skirt and the sweater are too cute together!

  8. I am such a huge fan of sweaters+ skirt/dresses. you are wearing on of the most fabulous sweaters i have seen in a while. the color= amazing, the texture= amazing, the shape= amzing. so in love with your sweater. it looks divine

  9. I love secret quiet time with a book in a coffee shop. No one to bother you, nice and peaceful music, the aroma of coffee. Sigh, so pleasant.

    This is the cutest outfit I have seen all week. Maybe all month.... bravo I say!


  10. reading in a coffeeshop sounds so peaceful and lovely.. (even if it is a starbucks, ha.) i haven't had a chance (or the time) to do that in years! you look so cute - it's like you stepped right out of the 1940's! love.

  11. The colors of your sweater, lipstick, blouse is so pretty. I'm like drooling at your sweater too haha.

  12. I adore popcorn-stitch sweaters! They're such fun. I really like the neckline on yours :)

  13. Oh my goodness! You look absolutely adorable! The sweater is amazing!
