BUTTONED UP BLUE

What a way to kick off the week -- feeling sick. I've been less than 100% since last night when my immune system decided that it was going to take an extended leave of absence. Thanks, white blood cells. It's not like I need my health to function like a normal human being or anything.

Hopefully, my body gets it together soon. Or else... *angryfistshake*

I know several of you asked about this lovely cardigan from last Friday's post, so here it is! I've included a link to it in the outfit details as well. As you can see, it has a cute dotted pattern, "pearl" buttons, 3/4 length sleeves, and a little lace collar, which you can see better here. I had been looking for a quirky little cardigan for an upcoming blog feature I've been planning, and this Modcloth number jumped out at me right away. I hesitated on paying full price for it, but I went ahead and took the plunge after realizing that my thriftiness last month resulted in me having some extra funds for shopping. Responsible spending? I am all for it.

  12. You look soooo good in this skirt Amy! Super flattering, and the color is pretty swoonworthy. And I am so in love with that cardigan! I have another sweater by that brand (Darling) and they are both so dainty and sweet.

  19. I love this whole look, Amy. I agree with Anjali that the color of the skirt is "swoonworthy." I'll be eying that cardigan for further pricing developments...

  20. Aww, Amy, feeling sick is not a nice feeling at all. I hope you get better soon.
    I LOVE that cardi, the lace collar is so pretty. How do you manage to wear the cardi so seamless, whenever I wear one, there are creases and folds everywhere :-)

  24. GAH I die for this cardi- I'm pretty sure I needed a XS but since those were sold out, I had to buy a S instead...wonder if it'll fit...Did you take your regular size in this?
