The Best Time to Wear a Striped Sweater...








Jacket: H & M
Scarf: Made my ME!
Shirt: Stolen Borrowed from my sister ;)
Shorts: F21
Tights: Calvin Klein via TJ Maxx
Shoes: Target
Bag: A purse party (has no brand name inside)

I thought I'd give you all a break from my pasty white legs (seriously, I'm Mexican, you'd think I'd have a little color!). It was actually cold enough to justify tights and a scarf. But not just any scarf. A scarf my made by me :D That's right, along with my newly acquired (and meager) sewing skills, I now know how to crochet a mean scarf. The thing I didn't realize though, is once you know how to do something cool (yeah, I said it, crocheting is super cool) everyone wants you to make them something. I'm booked for scarf making till mid-February.

P.S. Thank you for all your awesome comments! I'm glad to find I'm not alone in procrastinating or having no shame in taking gratuitous photo's of myself out in public :)

  2. You look lovely here! Nice job on the scarf too. Also when the scarf requests start getting a little extreme just put a price on the items. I used to crochet all the time. Nothing stopped a request like asking how much they would pay me. ;)

  5. I LOVE this mishmash of seasons - the stripes, cowl neck scarf, and short (with tights) look great together.

    Once I'm done with finals I'm going on a scarf-making binge. Hey I'm cheap and scarves make great gifts.
