Neon is back and I’m totally embracing it! I wore this sweater over the weekend and laughed about how it came to live in my closet the entire time I was wearing it…..
A few weeks ago I was at my in-law’s hanging out in the kitchen with my sis in law and niece. My mother in law emerged from a room holding this sweater. This is the conversation we had:
Mother in Law: Do either of you want this sweater? I don’t think I’ll wear it.
Sis in Law (with strawberry blond hair): I don’t think it will really work for me.
…Everyone looks at me. I’m still shocked by how bright the sweater is. So, I turn to my adorable one year old nice and ask:
Me: What do you think? Will this color look good on me?
Adorable Niece: Yeah! (then she giggles. Adorable niece thought it was pretty funny).
And, that’s how I walked away with this sweater. Oh, did I mention that adorable niece has 4 favorites words? They are: yeah, doggie, baby, and bye bye. I figured I had a one in four shot. The sweater was either going to get rejected by a bye bye, go to me with a yeah, or the baby nephew or doggie would score a neon sweater. I bet the doggie is jealous.
Oh, here’s a second purse from my collection. I found this in the clearance section of Marshall’s a few weeks ago for $49! Who can say no to Cynthia Rowley for $49??
