30 For 30: #4 & #5

Remember I had 2 open spots left in my 30 For 30 picks? This green shirt takes over spot #29. While rummaging around in my closet and moving the 30 items to a different spot the green cardigan came in very close contact to this shirt in my closet. Suddenly I had an AH HA moment as I never wear the green shirt. Not only did the 2 look very good together but I knew I would need another solid colored button down and not just the white one to carry me through. Just like that this outfit was born. And I love it so much I may just have to repeat it again sometime after the 30 for 30.

Oh and that necklace…I love it. But then again I love chainmail. I think it gives people pause. 😀

*Can you tell I shop at the chubby women’s stores?! 😉

I have this weakness for totally impractical fashion items. I bought this purple sweater because I loved the collar, I loved the dolman sleeves and it’s so so very soft! But all that in one sweater? Yeah I should have just put it back. It’s not the *most* flattering sweater. But oh my is it warm and cozy. Gotta love wearing it when it’s cold!
