Style File: Orange Sweater and Silver Booties

This is my first time wearing the orange sweater from last week's thrift haul. I paired it with metallic silver "space" booties for a little something different. I've never really mixed tones this way.

If I wear orange I usually stick to brown and gold colors. I also don't normally mix gold and silver. Buttons on sweater are gold (adore!) so I was going to throw on brown shoes. 

It's good to step out of the box. Do you agree?


I'm also showing some love to the wolf bracelet. It's still one of my favorite thrift finds. A wolf is just so unexpected.

Jeans are my old faithfuls. Quite the steal for less than a $1.

I really love my silver booties and it shows. The silver is worn away in parts. I need to take them to the art supply store for a paint consultation and then the cobbler for new soles. I do not want to let them go!

Fun fact: I've worn this sweater 4 days in a row. I've only worn it to brief outings where I've kept my coat on so I've been throwing it on everyday. It's finally in the laundry mountain bag today.

Yesterday's trip was to an early morning Walgreens run to grab a fever reducer for Ms. V. This was her very first fever. She's on the tail end of a cold and it was a little scary but she was better within an hour. 

I'm under the weather too so I'm going to leave it here and go lay down somewhere while V takes an extra large serving of Sesame Street and Bubble Guppies.
