Hi lovelies, Marlen from Messages on a Napkin here!  Today I'm styling a cozy sweater I borrowed from Rachel from Floral Prints and Common Sense.  

This sweater is one of those finds that go with absolutely anything- it can do no wrong. I literally wanted to wear it with all my skirts, with every one of my shorts, and on top of all my dresses. I might have changed outfits in the middle of the day just to see with what else this bad boy can go with. In this particular outfit I decided to go for a cozy look; pairing it with corduroy shorts, a rust cable knit sweater, and mustard tights.  

Another win: I was lounging on the couch wearing this when my momma passed by and said "See, why can't you wear clothes like that more often", and then gave a smug little nod of the head in approval. She's a proclaimed hater of anything vintage and thrifted, so that little exchange was a miracle. I bow down to this snowflake sweater.

  6. Ha that is so funny that your mom approved. I think you've said something about her hate for vintage before but seriously... HOW?!
    Anyway, I loved this sweater too! I love that we wore it with similar colors :) I loved your look with the skirt when I saw it on your blog and this shorts and cardi remix is really cute and comfy looking too!

  7. You have such a great eye for mixing together unexpected textures and patterns. I love this Marlen! And that sounds exactly like something my mom would say to me too :)

  8. I LOVE your skirt. It's both vintage and modern, something I'd see on Paris street style! Anyway, great blog, would you like to follow each other?


  9. Haha I'm glad you liked it! You wore it wonderfully!


  10. a hater of vintage and thrifted things?! what a pity. but funny she liked the sweater so much, esp because of it's vintage feel. Love the pairing w/ both the skirt and the shorts, that skirt is so fun & Jessi looks so classy in this too.
