Limetastic

Sweater - Kensie, thrifted
Dress - Karen Kane, ebay
Underskirt - thrifted
Harness - Audra Jean 
Socks - Target, gift
Vintage Shoes - etsy

I did swoon when I stumbled on this cotton sweater in goodwill. It was that perfect shade of lime-y citron. I layered it up with my fav knit dress and layered the underskirt to mirror the pink in my hair. Tall socks warded off the damp because I wanted to eek out one more day of non-boots. We're expecting "winter weather" (what the news is calling it) starting tomorrow. Tomorrow which is my first day of classes. Brr!

Sorry for today's tired face. I stayed up all night reading The Fault in Our Stars. No spoilers, but it is an amazing book that I highly recommend everyone go check out right now. Small warning: Keep some tissues handy. I spent 4 out of 6 hours bawling. So worth it. Oh! And all the copies of the first printing are signed by the author.

  1. The green makes your hair look extra bright, and the argyle socks are fun.

  3. I love the bright colors! I wish I were a little more daring with those bolder hues. You pull them off so well, it's inspiring. Adding the socks is definitely a fun touch. Best of luck starting classes and I hope the "winter weather" holds off just a little longer for you guys!

    Is the book fiction? I'm always up for a good cry when I read, ha ha!

  6. I love those colours! It's my current colour outerwear colour scheme! I have a lime green bag, wine coloured scarf/toque/mitts, and a navy jacket! I love the green so much I've been trying to thrift a piece of the same colour!

  8. Sounds like an amazing read but I'm a pretty emotional sap so being in tears for 4 hours could be intense! Love the lime green on you and the harness just gives it that edge!

  10. Really cool sweater! I also love the argyle socks! Yucky. We got our snow/blizzard/winter stuff today. It wasn't horrible, but it was cold and slick on the roads. Luckily, you don't have to drive in it!

  12. Nice bright color! Super happy feeling! And I love those socks, they are too much fun! It's super cold here now, which is how it's supposed to be, but it's still hard to take. I'll have to check into that book, it sounds interesting.

  14. Fun combination! I'm a particular fan of the harness/belt. A little steampunk touch. ;) I know what you mean about wanting to ward of the boot wearing -- I'm in a boot wearing rut now that we have some snow to wade through. ;)
