The Neutral Cardigan of my Dreams

In honor of November and that whole thankful holiday thing that's quickly approaching, I thought I'd throw out some virtual high fives. 

Thank you for being far more versatile than I thought you'd be, paisley maxi skirt. If you were a human, I'd be your friend.

Thank you for completely kicking sartorial ass, Old Navy. Especially recently.

Thank you for not judging me because of my need for Old Navy, credit card. I know I hurt you. 

Thank you for catching my crumbs (and earrings), scarves.  

Thank you for the extra sleep, third day hair. 

Thank you, heated seats, for...heating my seat. 

Thank you for consistently amusing me, Modern Family and Big Bang Theory

Thank you, five minute drive, for being awesome. If I don't pee before leaving work, it's okay. I can make it home before I wet my pants. That hour drive I was doing for almost four years? I needed Depends to survive. 

Thank you, fellow English department members, for being as crass and juvenile as I am. 

Thank you to the people who actually join me in this corner of cyber world. I do hope you feel entertained and inspired. If you don't, come find me in real life. I swear I won't disappoint you. 

The Outfit:
Cardigan: Old Navy (it's the boyfriend cardigan)
Flats: you can't see them but they're the same color as the cardigan, and they're from Old Navy
Skirt: New York and Company
Belt: Francesca's
Shirt: Target
Scarf: wearing yet another little number crocheted by my mom. I swear she should open an Etsy shop. 

Throw some of your virtual high fives my way. I'd like to know what big (or small) things that are making you feel all full of thanks. 

Also, fellow bloggers, do you find that when someone sincerely compliments your outfit that you have to blog that one for posterity's sake, or is it just me who is swayed by this compulsion?


  1. I'm sporting this amazing cardi on the blog today too!! I was just going to say that your mom should sell her scarves, so I could buy one and then I saw your comment. She should do it!

  2. You consistently make me laugh which is part of the reason I love your blog so much, that and your amazing style :) I totally feel ya with the scarf thing. Scarves tend to get in the way when eating don't they? Dipped mine in soup the other day...

  3. Love this scarf, how cool is your mom! You're also so much more witty than I am after a full week of teaching. :)

  4. Danielle, I just love you. So, so much. I, too, am a fan of Old Navy recently (although I'm trying not to let myself in there for awhile as I try to save my money...). This cardigan, though, may drag me back into the store! I need it!!! Also, I am IN LOVE with Modern Family (I'm a perfect blend of Mitchell and Cam) and Big Bang Theory (Sheldon and Howard crack me up).

  5. Thank YOU for cracking me up about the bathroom comment. When I was pregnant my 30 minute drive was torture! Love that paisley skirt! And I definitely feel the need to post an outfit if I get complimented. I also wonder if I actually should post an outfit if I don't get complimented! ;)


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
