New Year, New Cardigan

Happy New Year!!

I apologize for being absent these past few weeks, but I have been in need of some time away from blogging. I've been relaxing, watching plenty of TV, playing The Sims, and hanging out with family.

The day after Christmas, my Mom and I went to the Outlet Mall and bought a few new things (at amazing prices!). One item I was especially pleased to find was this longer cardigan! {This is my first J. Crew (Factory) purchase -- it was on sale, with an additional 40% off, and a 15% student discount! Gotta love it! This cardigan is simple, but I can see myself getting plenty of wear from it.}

Occasion: Dinner and a movie
Shirt: The Limited
Cardigan: J. Crew Factory - gift
Necklace & Jeans: The Limited
Boots: Payless
I wore this outfit today when my husband, mother-in-law, and I went to see Life of Pi. I enjoyed the movie, but wished I would have been warned about the potential motion sickness. Has anyone seen the movie and felt nauseous during it? 

PS: It turns out that my camera was under warranty and so Canon fixed it free of charge! Well- they sent me a refurbished one. Hooray!

  6. Ooh I love this!!! That shirt is amazing :) I haven't seen the movie yet, but good to note that it might make me feel sick!!

  7. Hey Kate! I hear you on the bangs, trust me mine don't always look presentable! I wear them either parted or as you see on my blog post today normally. If I am wearing my bangs not parted, I straighten them and use a very slight bend at the end to keep my ends from lookin yucky. If they are still unrulely, I will actually

  8. Sorry, not sure why that first comment posted, haha! If my bangs are still giving me trouble I actually backcomb them a tiny bit at the root and then hairspray. Hope that helps! Love your new cobalt blue cardigan, my new favorite color!
