Thread Share: Strawberries!

Hello! And, happy new year!

So, friends, I am finally back into the swing of things. I am feeling a lot better, and now, of course, C is sick, but she took such good care of me over the holiday that I am more than happy to return the favor! I did not leave the couch for a chunk of the break and watched more tv than should be humanly possible. A whole season of Bones? Check. Two seasons of Will and Grace? Check and Check. I also started American Horror Story, which is scary and awesome. Any great shows that you'd like to share? We are netflix-a-holics, so recommend away!

Now, for the first Thread Share post of the new year, Marissa sent me this ADORABLE strawberry cardigan. I nearly cried when I had to ship it back to her. So! Cute!

I could have styled it a million ways, but finally decided to rock it with a classic denim button up and a corduroy skirt (one of my work staples).

I hope Santa spoiled you! I was happy to find concert tickets, a night in a hotel, new wool socks, a new calendar, and lots of amazing goodies under the tree this year! We had such a lovely break, but it was a bummer to miss out on new year's eve festivities because of the cold. Looks like I already have my dress for next year since I wore jammies this year.

Big love to you, friends! I have a feeling 2013 is going to be extra amazing! It won't be too long til I'm a "Mrs."! Can you believe it?

Oh and here is the (berry) beautiful M in strawberries. You can see more on her blog! I can't wait to see what she sends me next!




  1. That cardigan is to die for. I would have cried as I sent it back, too. Also, I love your apple red tights. So bright and cheery!

    I'm glad to hear you're feeling better! I've been under the weather for a week now and I'm JUST able to breath through my nose again. Yay! Progress.

    I wish you and yours all the best in 2013. xx

  2. I love this outfit! Every piece is great on its own and even better together! Happy New Year! xo

  3. Seriously, can I have some of your style?! You've always got the prettiest threads!
    It seems like the cold/flu went crazy in blogland and hit us all. Not a fun way to ring in the new year :(

I love this sweater, you must have been really sad to send it back! You both look so cute in it but I can't help but think you're cold also with all that snow :) Please pass along any TV recs you get- I love watching shows on Netflix too. Also, I will email you back soon!! Just getting caught up after our traveling! Hugs!

  6. This sweater is beyond cute and perfect for you! I love it! I'm glad you're feeling better but sorry that Cayla's got it now!
