The red sweater

This is going to sound silly, but I don’t think I’ve been this enamored with a sweater in a long time (maybe ever?)

I’m taking a cue from Target and alike stores and getting ready for Valentine’s day a wee bit early πŸ˜‰

I hope you’re all having a great week end enjoy your weekend (or long weekend if you live in the US).Β  I’ll be spending it organizing my home, getting ready to start the Spring semester of school, and cuddling with this little gal some more

    The sweater looks great on you. I have the khaki colored one but i paid full price, probably should have waited for a knock off somewhere!

    • Eli

      I was going to do the same thing when I first saw the sweater, I still have no idea how it came to Crossroads so little after it was in the stores. My guess is that an employee sold it to them for some extra cash. I like the khaki one too πŸ™‚

  • Maria

    Love the sweater! Tried getting my hands on one, but sold out before I could.


    • Eli

      The girl at Jcrew a month ago told me it sold out super fast, I still don’t know how I got it at Crossroads, I think an employee must have sold it for some extra cash

  • Jackie

    I love, love, love the <3 sweater.Β 

  • Superniknok

    lovely sweater!!! β™₯

  • Eyeliah

    Oh it is so great, I could see wearing it constantly!

  • Anonymous

    I love the sweater too, so cute!

  • it is a terribly cute sweater, and certainly appropriate for v-day, but that is no reason you shouldn’t wear it all winter!

    • Eli

      I know! Can’t wait til February, going to wear it all year long and I dont care πŸ™‚

  • Sara

    I love that you paired the sweater with a print too – it makes it that much better.

    • Eli

      In my head I’d actually like to wear it with red pants, but I don’t have any, and I fear of looking like the Kool Aid man

  • Thedesertfoxxx

    stunning in red!!!!!


  • Crystalin

    I can’t believe you scored this sweater at Crossroads, good find!Β 

    • Eli

      Still in disbelief myself πŸ™‚

  • Did you really get that sweater from Crossroads? What a great find!! You always find amazing stuff!Β 

    • Eli

      Yes! I can’t believe it either, mostly because I had just seen it at JCrew!! I think an employee must have sold it for some extra cash, that is the only thing I can think of. It was the event at the pop up Crossroads that used to be Shotwell.

  • Districtofchic

    That sweater is so awesome! I love how you layered it over plaid, too. All round fun.

    • Eli

      I’d love to wear it with red pants (if I had a pair!)

    How can you NOT love a heart sweater?

    • Eli

      That was exactly my rationale, I’ve been wanting a Comme des gacons sweater for a long time, so this will have to do πŸ™‚

    • Chandra D

      Werrrrd, Wendy B.

  • Chandra D

    So. Heart shirt? Plaid? Yeah, um. I’m gonna do that.


  • ashley/ MILK TEETHS

    Β that heart sweater is a definite beaut! I’m excited for all of the valentine’s themed stuff to hit the stores πŸ™‚

    • Eli

      Target is already full of Valentines day things, it’s awesome!

  • Of course I love this sweater, too. I especially like how you wore it over that plaid dress. I wish we had a Crossroads here in Texas!!Β 

    • Eli

      Crossroads is amazing, you have a Buffalo Exchange right? Kind of similar!

  • Santina

    Eli, I just snagged this sweater on sale in Portland – twinsies! I love it on you!

    • Eli

      Same color? πŸ™‚ lets see when the day happens that we both wear it at the same time!

  • AsianCajuns Lar

    Hi Eli! I would sooo fall in love with that sweater too! And pairing it with that black and white gingham is genius! I hope your new semester is starting out well!
    p.s. Your hair is gorgeous! It’s making me wish my hair would grow faster!

    • Eli

      Thank you πŸ™‚ my secret to long hair is not getting haircuts, seriously been three years since my last one!

  • Lidiya

    The sweater is just totally adorable, I adore it, so cute <3

  • Natalie James
