On a brighter note, I'm pretty excited about today's look. This dress is quickly becoming one of my favorite things in my closet. I was also super excited when Target put this cardigan on sale for $15, then I had a $3 off coupon. Score! Last winter I found a great LOFT cardigan thrifted for only a few bucks, but it was really too big, so I was looking for a replacement and I'm pretty pleased with this option. I really feel like I've learned a lot about shopping in this past year and am being more purposeful with my purchases and I find myself ultimately being happier with them too. My next big purchase will probably be brown leather riding boots (which would be amazing with this outfit, by the way). I love these, now I just need to find the time to get into DSW to try them on and see if they fit my ridiculously large calves.
