No offense to the dromedaries of the world, but I’ve realized that camel is not for me. It makes me look washed out and sad. But caramel, caramel is a color that makes me happy. I mean, look how happy I am in this caramel sweater:
I thrifted it last weekend with my friend, Alex, and can you believe that she was skeptical when I pulled it from the racks? I know it looks like a plain brown sweater, but it’s not. It’s caramel and I plan on wearing the heck out of it this fall and winter. Starting today, where I paired the sweater (Land’s End, thrifted) with a cream crocheted skirt (vintage, thrifted), black tights, black booties (Nine West via Piperlime) and a black silk tie (Brooks Brothers, thrifted).
Today’s Takeaway? Camel = sad but caramel = happy. And, of course, a jaunty bow never hurts.
Also, because today is Thursday and I like parties, I’ve linked up over at Spunky Chateau for the Thursday’s Are for Thrifter’s Link Party. Stop by and join the fun!
P.S. Here is a close-up of the knit of the skirt just in case you were curious:
