Like many pieces before it (infamous Zara heels, anyone? over exposed Old Navy cargo vest?) the ‘heart’ sweater is this season’s blogger must-have item. While J.Crew released its version a couple seasons back, retailers for the more recession-conscious fashionista have debuted adaptations of their own. This Old Navy version was one I had been coveting, so when I saw it on sale it was as if fate had stepped in and granted my wish! I love that it’s a nod to the graphic sweater trend, and the ¾ length sleeves are perfect for Arizona’s mild winters. Wearability my friends, wearability.
Although I’d love to take credit for the styling of this ensemble, I believe one should give credit where credit is due. Both Miss Lacey (A Lacey Perspective) and Miss Krystal (This Time Tomorrow) paired heart sweaters with florals, so this is my recreation of their genius . What? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery:) Oh, and check out how Cathy of Poor Little It Girl paired it with polka dots!
On a more serious note, thoughts and prayers go out to those on the East Coast experiencing the wrath of hurricane Sandy. Please stay safe!
