Pumpkin on Ice

Photos: Katie Derus | Sweater: J.Crew | Button-down: Abercrombie | Jeans: Wet Seal | Boots: Vintage | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (alligator-embossed and on sale!) | Belt: Vintage | Sunglasses: Prada | Necklace: BR | Bracelets: F21, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor | Earrings: Kendra Scott

I have a major crush on this pumpkin-colored J.Crew sweater. I like the mod vibe it imparts when styled with a buttoned-up shirt and my new round Prada shades. Best of all, this sweater is warm. I've been reaching for it whenever the weather looks mildly chilly--which is rather often in my neck of the woods lately. I was actually quite comfortable outside in all that snow without a coat. Although J.Crew carries petite sizing, I liked the fit of this one in an XS regular, especially once I added a belt to define the waist.

Last weekend, I also took a little shopping trip to my mom's closet while I was visiting her, and I found these wonderful boots (remember the ones I showed you in my last Sunday Snapshots post?). I love when something she wore and loved can be repurposed and recycled into my wardrobe. My mom has always had great taste, so I can often find some real treasures to borrow from her--wait until you see the brown boots I'll be featuring here soon.
