Happy Veteran's Day

My outfit has absolutely nothing to do with Veteran's Day . . . but Happy Veteran's Day nonetheless! Today I'm thankful for our Veteran's and the sacrifices they've made to keep our country safe!

Now on to shallow and superficial things like clothes. =)

I wore this yesterday to work. It was my first time belting a sweater that wasn't a cardigan. I'm still scared to try belting a thick sweater, but I think this worked because it was thin and more like a shirt than a big cozy sweater.

Jacket: Thrifted ($5)
Sweater ($10) & Belt ($7): Target
Jeans: Target (Handed Down)
Shoes: Rsvp from 6pm.com ($6.95)
Jewelry: My Sister's

This is my "Holy crap, it's cold!" face. =)

I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend! I have off today, so I'm enjoying the long weekend with my sweet family!  And if you're a veteran, thank you again for all that you do for the rest of us!

Tiffany this looks fantastic! Do you remember that one outfit where I belted the sweater and your comment read..."I would look like a stuffed marshmellow?" Hmmmm no traces of marshmellow-ness here :) Love it!

I must agree with everyone else, I love the belt with the sweater. Such a great detail. You look cozy and warm with all those layers. It's definitely time to start bundling up. Hope you enjoyed your long weekend!

I'm the same way about belted sweaters...it always looks so good on other people, but I just can't get it to work. But I do love it like this...that sweater looks great with the belt! And I really love the glasses, too :)

I love the colors of your outfit, looks great on you. I like the striped sweater, belting it up is a good idea to give your outfit a nice shape! Fabulous jacket, makes the outfit looks fun and playful, a wonderful weekend look.

i've recently begun belting my sweaters at the waist. i know what you mean about belting thick sweaters...and i really think it's a hit or miss. sometimes i love it, sometimes it looks horrible! love the pretty blues and greens in your sweater.

Great sweater! I think the belt works. You should try belting a heavier knit sweater. Remember it's all about silhouette. Keep your waist defined in the right place and it'll look great.
