Stripes, plaid, and acorns

Photobucket

Do you guys remember this sweater? It was on a beautiful blog (if someone remembers which one, link me please!) I posted on Facebook, and someone had altered it to fit their child. I'd never been so jealous of a four year old.

*Update* A couple people have remembered the site, it's The Glow and this is the post the sweater is on.  

I never really expected to find it, some people told me it was from H&M, I figured eventually I could make my own. 

But then this weekend, there it was at Buffalo Exchange. I almost didn't look on the sweater rack because the weather is warming up. Good thing I did! 

I wasted to time in wearing it, and the neckline is perfect for my acorn necklace. 

I didn't set my hair, so I tried a bang roll, using a "rat", and the rest in a bandanna. I learned how to do that using Fleurs lovely 1940s faux bangs tutorial. Still getting the hang of it, but it's a great vintage style for days my hair isn't curled.

The hair is way cute! And I like the preppy feeling of the sweater. You look like you need to be strolling around Nice in that!

The Girl with Everything said...

Wow! I wanted this sweater so badly when it was at H&M a couple years ago. I didn't buy it because my sister didn't like it. I need to learn to ignore her sometimes.
