Peekaboo

Sweater: Gap (really, really old) | Blouse: Forever 21 (similar) | Jeans: Hudson (similar) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAC | Boots: Urban Outfitters | Watch: Michael Kors Lexington Tri-color

Sometimes it can be a bit hard to find that perfect crewneck-and-statement-collar combination, but this sweater really never fails me. It’s probably a decade old, but it has seen me through time and time again (thanks, Gap, I really should shop there more often these days!).

This past weekend was one of those blissful weekends where you do everything and nothing. Finally stored the Christmas decorations in the attic (they’ve been lounging in the hallway for an embarrassingly long time). Saturday and Sunday we spent together, doing couple-y things like grocery shopping and cooking enormous meals (using our new grill, natch) that we can’t possibly finish. Oh, and drinking wine. Lots and lots of wine.

Like I said…perfect.



Hope you had a lovely weekend!

    I’ve always loved a great studded collar! I also how well that Rebecca Minkoff bag goes so beautifully with the gorgeous teal color of that sweater.  To be honest, I never would have had any clue that it was almost 10yrs. old – it looks great! Do you have some clothes care and/or laundry secrets we all should know about? LoL!  ;)

    Love the bag and lips. I really like the color of the sweater set against the black top and the black top against your skin. Very pretty.

    you look so comfortable, yet cute? how you do it, I will never know! (LOVING the color of the sweater).

    In other news, our weekends were very similar. I ended up in a pseudo veggie-like state Sunday…can’t say I’m proud, but sometimes I just NEED to have a day like that!

  • Natalie

    I may be biased since they’re my fav, but you really can’t ever go wrong with a cable knit sweater!

  • Stylethroughhereyes

    I love your sweater and dress combo! These colors look great on you :)

  • Cheralyn Mae

    You’re such a tease posting with that awesome Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag!  Is it just me or does it look like your sweater is in 3D??  The teal is popping off my screen :)

    Its so funny you mentioned that about GAP.  I have a ton of GAP stuff that has been with me for far longer than I even care to admit, though I am not a current/present avid GAP shopper.  Hmm… anyway, cute outfit, love the collar, very sassy.

    I’m 5″2 as well – can I ask which style of hudson’s you’re wearing?  I often find jeans don’t fit us shorter ladies in the  -ahem – crotch!

    That sweater is a gorgeous color!  I finally put my Christmas decorations away as well this weekend.  Glad to hear I’m not the only one, lol.

    The black collar popping out with studs is such a fun twist on the usual white one that most people do. 

  • Autumn kim

    Can you do a review on your MK watches??

  • Debbiepinchot

    Hi, I’m sorry but not a fan of the outfit. I do however love you’re haircut. Looks really nice and healthy. I also love Rebecca Minkoff. I have a camel color swing bag. LOVE.

    you look so gorgeous in that color! 

  • scunningham

    That’s the funny thing about GAP. Every now and then, they make something that is absolutely perfect. I feel that way about some legging jeans from 2009, and this year’s Essential t-shirts, and their always skinny denim from 2010.  I just can’t quit them, because I know they will always have something (even if just one thing) that is perfectly perfect.

    Sometimes the old stuff is better than the latest and greatest! I totally understand….
