Jen and I met up for breakfast on this snowy Salt Lake Sunday, at The Rose Establishment. I had a hot cup of the daily French Press and it hit the spot. So deliciously perfect. I also had one if their poppy seed scones, sorry I didn’t take a picture – I consumed it so quickly! Jen had one of their whole wheat and spiced apple “Pop-Tarts” and an Americano. It’s always nice to catch up over hot drinks on a cold wintery day. So far, today is great. We’ll keep you posted.

I’ve had this Angora sweater just sitting in my closet that I had picked up at a thrift store a few years ago. Every time I clean my closet, you know “out with the old – in with the new”, I can never seem to part with it. I’ve only worn it once (just after purchasing it), but I didn’t feel like the style of the sweater fit me quite right. It’s SOOOO soft, I thought maybe I’d chop it up and make a hat and scarf out of it . . . but I couldn’t bear to.
Then I saw this photo of a Free People Angora Sweater for sale and knew what I needed to do!
I needed to find another sweater and merge the two. The night before New Year’s Eve I went Thrift Town and found an ugly $2 turtleneck sweater with just the right coloring! I cut off 3 inches of each sleeve and the bottom 3 inches of the torso. I then cut the peplum off (which I still think is adorable and somewhat sad to see it go!) my Angora Sweater and sewed the turtleneck sleeves and torso pieces directly on. In less than 2 hours total, I had a whole new sweater! I wish I had taken photos of the process (very sorry) but I was in such a hurry to get my idea finished!
My Finished Sweater – What do you think?
I then wore it on New Year’s Eve! We were having a little too much fun taking photos of our window reflection – the city lights made great bokeh!

The spooks will be out soon. One of our neighbors is already lighting up the night with orange and purple lights. I find myself browsing the web trying to find the perfect costume for Halloween. I thought I would share some really awesome wigs that I came across in my search for the ultimate costume… hopefully I’ll decide on a costume soon, but these were fun finds! If anyone has insight to a great costume, let me know!

I’ve been working on a major closet overhaul — you know, the kind where you REALLY go through everything. So far, I’ve got two huge garbage bags full of old clothes to take to the D.I (Utah’s local version of Goodwill) — I’m talking JNCO flares, rainbow studded belts and shirts that barely cover the ladies (did I seriously ever wear this stuff?) It’s been a fun trip down memory lane, but I’m eager to pare things down in many aspects of my life — the closet is just step one.
It’s felt really good. But, my closet also feels really bare (in a good way). My new goal: buy just a few unique additions each season to build around the staples. Here’s what I’m swooning over today:
I’m loving the rose-printed jeans, although I feel like they’ll end up in a similar D.I. pile in a few years. The moss green tee acts as the perfect classic balance. Also, I think this is the year of the romper for me — I’ve always been hesistant, but why?!? With the right structure, it’s just like a dress with shorts! What could be better than that? This number has both — pintucking and voluminous shorts in navy blue.
