Welcome to the third Thursday of the month! I'm excited to see some of your favorite pieces and hopefully hear some of the stories of why they are your most cherished items.
I have a bunch of things I truly cherish in my wardrobe - compared to only a few a year or two ago. I've been making more of an effort to love everything in my closet and be sure that I'm investing in pieces that make me feel good and that I love to wear/carry/have around. Mid-last year, I invested in a coat that I've lusted after forever, and while it hasn't been the season to wear it lately, I feel happy every time I see it in my closet.
We had a gloomy day last week that was a bit warmer than it had been so I took the opportunity to layer it up and wear it, and all day long I felt so confident in it. You guys, this is one of those things that even though I know every other blogger had it, and raved about it, I just wasn't sure I'd love it. But it was on sale, so I tried it, and I wish I could go back in time and not spend the $60 I spent on the two fake versions of it, because this time, the real version was absolutely the right one.
Also, for the record - this sweater is Travis's. It's a bit oversized on me, which is the very best, but I can still get away with wearing it to work, especially when under a jacket or over a button-down. Sneaky-sneaky, right? :)
So now, time for the link-up! Please make sure you link directly to the post and not to your blog homepage, and stay on-theme, please!
