Ribbon Sweater

Hi everyone!
I have to confess that I have a weak spot for ribbons. I fell in love with this cardigan when I first saw it in stores but couldn’t decide if I should get it. Lucky for me I snagged one during their winter sale for $7! I love the juxtaposition of knits and ribbons – they add just the right amount of flair to create a Parisian-meets-bohemian look.
As some of you may know I am hitting the home stretch with law school, this is my LAST semester. I am still working full-time, taking 4 classes, and trying to wrap my head around this whole application and preparation process for the upcoming bar exam in July. Please accept my advance apology as I may be a day or two late on visiting and commenting on everyone's blog!

Ribbon Cardi & Knit Shorts :: H&M

  5. Love this look. I have to say Hue tights are by far my favorite brand. I know you understand the being petite and buying tights situation! They fit so perfectly. My local Dillard's has been running them on sale ($4.80)!
