Four days until the Olympics. Are you ready! I am such an enormous Olympics fan (did you know I went to Vancouver with P&G!) that I really get into the spirit. Yep, that even means wearing the red, white and blue with pride.
Last week Ralph Lauren shared the outfits the athletes would be wearing. Not everyone applauded, buy I was keen on them. I love the classic patchwork sweater. Well, the sweaters SOLD OUT in like a minute. Missed out on that fashion boat. Undaunted, I vowed to still get into the spirit.
Time to do some belated birthday shopping in Soho. I picked up this Blue Label Intarsia-Knit Wool Sweater ($398)–it’s equally patriotic right? It’s a chunky wool-and-alpaca blend and is so cozy. If I were in Sochi I could totally see me curling up by the fire apres ski with a hot chocolate. Since I was shopping, I got sucked into the accessories department. I got these Western Cat Eye Sunglasses ($200) too.
My weekend casual look WILL take me to ski lodges, just not the ones in Russia. Think Connecticut or Vermont instead. In addition to my new sunnies, I paired it with my Old Navy jeans and these fringy boots I scored on Zappos. The Sam Edelman Louie ($127.99) has the perfect heel and a color that goes with everything.
Speaking of Zappos. Let’s talk about the giveaway. I’m celebrating the new Monday Mingle. We’ve said farewell to Jill (she’s still going strong Glamamom.com) and Hell-o to Carly a blogger and personal stylist (and fabulous mom) from the Jersey Shore. This sassy, style maven will be joining Kristin and I as we mingle every Monday and talk fashion. You’ll love Carly for her impeccable taste–I can’t wait for you all to get to know her.
Are you excited about the Olympics? Will you wear red, white and blue? Share what youve been wearing on Monday Mingle. Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls.com and Carly from Thirtysomethingfashion.com. Each week we post about our personal style and then invite our friends to join in the fun.
