30 for 30: Day SIXTEEN (11/30/10)

I've been struggling to inject this sweater into my remix. I know, it doesn't seem like it would be a big deal - it's a tan sweater for jeepers sake. I think my issue has been the fact that it is cut a bit longer so I wasn't liking the way it paired with my skirts/dresses. I finally threw my hands up in the air and kept it super simple, which ended up working perfectly.

I predict I will wear this tie neck blouse about a gazillion times, guys. I love it. It mixes so well with a lot of my clothes. I think I fell in love with tie necks a few months ago when I saw Rachel Zoe wearing the most impeccable black tie neck scarf. I've yet to find the perfect scarf to replicate her look but I'm still searching. This blouse is my little substitute for now.

The only thing missing from this outfit? An amazing vintage necklace that I was so excited to wear and looked amazing with this outfit. Where is it, you ask? It broke almost first thing this morning. I was walking through our file room at work when I felt it suddenly feel a little loose. I looked down and noticed one of the strands had come loose and was losing beads by the second. Ugh. I guess I can't be too upset - I am pretty sure I caught all of the beads and it seems like the only thing I need to do to fix it is restrand it. The string it was made with was just very old and delicate.

Here's to hoping for a sunnier day tomorrow! I can live without another super-rainy, dark and dreary day like we had today. :)
