OOTD 12.13.09: Rosy!

Sunday afternoon's outfit was a total copy from an Ann Taylor LOFT website pic.  When I purchased the Chiffon Rose Cardigan in black, I could only envision wearing it with a simple cami, but then I saw this:

ATL's pic

...and thought - "Hey! I can do that."

I couldn't find a long sleeved white shirt (?) - I know I have one - so had to try the roll with my 3/4 sleeve shirt but I think it worked OK.  I had every intention of putting on socks and boots since it was lightly snowing, but liked the look of the leopard flats so much I just kept them on.  It wasn't that cold and I just had to get from car to building a couple of times.  

I added a lavender scarf and blingy J Crew bracelet not shown in my pics.

here's a pic with the flash to show the chiffon detailing a little better

Happy Tuesday!  Counting down!



  1. Love the outfit. I'm definitely going to try this one out.

  2. This looks fantastic. Effortless chic :)

  3. Ooh, I really like this one! The detailing is great but i'm glad it's in a dark color so it's not too over the top.

  4. I didn't buy that sweater because of the short sleeves...but I didn't think of layering a button up underneath!

    Looks great and makes me wish I had bought the cardi after all!


  5. So glad you showed this. I have this cardi and haven't worn it yed because of the cold weather...I can't wait to try this look! (your house looks gorgeous, by the way!)

  6. I love this look...I never would have thought to pair a button down with it, but it looks great!

  7. love this------esp. the shoes!! where and when did you get these???

  8. thanks everyone!
    mrs.a - thanks! I love the shoes too - my mom got them for me at Nordstrom last Christmas. They are by Linea Paolo and called the "Aimie" in cream/black leopard.

  9. Great way to wear shortsleeve cardigan now!!! I have a black jcrew cashmere ss cardigan I may try this with!!!

  10. ooh! I love this outfit!

  11. Great re-creation, I am going to have to try this one out too but with the dusty rose colored cardigan!

  12. Hi there! What a fun blog, I run a movie blog myself but I do love fashion, too. I have this top in black, too, but for some reason I didn't think of wearing it with white button-down shirt. Great idea, I definitely will give it a try. Looks great on you, I will wear 'em with jeans and black boots. Thanks for the idea!
