sunshine sweater

 {thrifted sweater, vintage Bottega Ventta bag, Dollhouse ankle booties}

I felt like wearing seasonal fall attire this day, but the weather was too warm to bundle up in mittens and scarves. So being the traditional girl I am, I threw on a sweater with about million holes over my cutoffs and some boots to jazz it up. This sweater dress has got to be one of my favorite pieces ever thrifted- it's got this unique boho-crocheted look, can be belted as a dress, or thrown over jeans as a sweater. And I love how the fringe blows in the wind!

To all my American readers, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are spending it in good health, good company and good food! I'm hosting my first family Thanksgiving meal- fingers crossed it's not a disaster. Any tips for a newbie? Either way I'll let you know how it goes.
