Raiding My Sister's Closet: Floral Edition

Tuesday, April 7, 2015


That moment where your heart drops because you thought Raiding My Sister's Closet was next week... Yup, that would be me at 8:00 this morning.  Thankfully my baby was on the verge of going down for a nap, and we have a monitor that is able to travel some distance and still get reception.  So these are a little late, but here is my spring floral!

This sweater has become an instant favorite of mine.  Not only does it have boatloads of color in it,  it is so soft and feminine.  It matches everything, it makes me look like a lady (even in jeans) and it is so so comfortable.  Everyone needs a sweater like this.  I think it is going to be my go-to piece for the next ten years or so.  If it wasn't from a clothing swap, I probably would have bought 6.

Also, on an unrelated note, you should check out my new recipe index!  I had a professional do it, and I am unreasonably thrilled with it!  It makes me feel super legit.

  2. I'm glad you are still keeping this "sisters' closet" going in spite of the new direction of your blog. Always fun to see what you girls are doing.

    1. It is one of my very favorite posts to put together! I love how it keeps the three of us connected, even though we live far away from each other, and how we collaborate on what types of things to choose. It is really very fun! Glad you enjoy them!

    1. Ruth, Thanks! Isn't that a fun little (well, kind of big) detail on the back! So glad you like the recipe index! I am obsessed! It is so fun to see it update when I post something new, too! So exciting!

    1. Heather,
      That is funny that you can never find cute shoes at Ross, because I almost always find at least one pair of shoes that I like when I stop in at a Ross. It is maddening, honestly, because more often than not, I know I don't need a new pair, but they are just so cute! Maybe we should trade Ross stores, and you can come to mine, and I will come to yours. It might help me avoid temptation... :)

    1. Isn't it though? I LOVE this sweater, and wished I had made it. I bet you could make one though. I ought to ask Merrick to make one :) Maybe she would do a tutorial.

      I am SO glad you like the new blog! It has been such a great thing for me! I am loving the new focus, too!
