Happy Friday lovelies! I'm particularly happy today because one of my best friends, Kim, who I've known for 35 years is coming to visit me tomorrow, flying in from Vancouver and staying for a week (my poor husband!). Because I've been so busy with my new blog and building the website, I'm completely unprepared for her stay, but I know she won't mind a bit. No doubt you'll meet her next week!
Today I'm sharing an outfit that I put together with something I purchased from Nordstrom a couple of weeks ago for an absolute steal - the blanket scarf. It was the last one, and was about to be shipped off to Nordstrom's Rack (like an unwanted puppy being sent to the shelter), but this little puppy went home - with me - for $10 - yessurree! I was so thrilled because I already had a bright red Rebecca Minkoff handbag that picks up the red in the scarf, but a neutral bag would look awesome too.
Although sweater weather is normally brief in Arizona, this one is definitely going to see some action since it's light weight and loose fitting, so it's wearability will extend beyond the cold weather months. For example, those cooler evenings we often have in the fall and spring, as well as being a great sweater for travel because it's not bulky to pack.
I have fallen victim to repeat wear on these Via Spiga booties, but can you blame me? The warm neutral shade and the wedge heel, not to mention how comfortable they are, they shout at me every day to put them on! They are currently on major discount at Nordstrom.
I might even wear this outfit to pick Kim up from Sky Harbour Airport tomorrow, she should be able to spot me easily with that pop of red!
Have a lovely weekend lovelies!
