True Love

No. I didn't find it ... I wore it, and on Valentine's Day no less. I kid you not. My cardigan was a case of True Love.

I'll say it again. True Love. On Valentine's Day. Snort.

shirt —Gap (thrifted)
cardigan — True Love (thrifted)
pants — London Jean (Victoria's Secrets)
boots — Hayley by Faded Glory (thrifted)
necklace — thrifted

I was trying for a monochromatic color look, and I wanted to do the red family because ... well, because it was Valentine's Day, of course! I pulled this cardigan out to wear, when I saw that the label read "True Love," I just had to wear it.

It wasn't a true monochrome look ... I should have switched out the black shirt for a bright pink one or a deep red.

Unfortunately, I don't work in the kind of place where I can play around with what I wear all that much. My goal, dress wise, is to look "conservative" so I tone down what I wear accordingly. It's kind of strange. I can wear jeans day in and day out, but a lot of chothing choices are simply out of the question.

I'm totally exhausted these days ... I've had parental health issues, I've been job interviewing, and I went through the most traumatic house appraisal ever, and then there has been work. Still no vacation or sick time, so if I take any time off, I have to make up by working 10- to 12-hour days. I seriously don't know if I am coming or going these days. Just trying to hold it together these days.

Linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday


  1. Hi Kari, I am visiting via Visible Monday, and I think this monochromatic look is lovely. Not everybody needs a neon pop of colour in every outfit. I say your sunny smile is all the pop you need! Sorry to hear of the challenges you are facing these days. It does sound exhausting. Sending positive thoughts that you can take a moment for yourself soon.

  2. Hello Kari - sorry to hear of all the stress piled on you right now - I wish you could visit Florida again and we would have a moment for a quiet glass of wine together : >

    You look great, just right for the casual workplace, and even with a pop of Red for VDay!

  3. Great colors and textures, Kari. Really some of my favorite combos here. Very accessible and flattering look for you, kid.

  4. PS... sorry you're beset by grim and difficult stuff right now. Hang in, and very good luck. Spring will come!
