4 of 30: Blue Jeans, Polka Dot Cardi and Dainty Rosettes.

When I started this challenge, I really didn't know whether I would be able to follow the 2 Themed Link-Ups I normally link with twice each week. Yesterday's Spotlight Weekly theme was Floral. Since I didn't include any Floral Prints in my items, that meant I'd have to settle for a Scarf. But then I remembered my White+Black Polka Dot Cardigan has some Beautiful Cobalt Chiffon Rosettes around the neckline, so it totally counts. And I was able to link my Nautical Outfit earlier this week, so, so far I am 2 for 2. =)

Today's Outfit is very simple but sometimes it is all about K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid). I am sorry you are seeing these Cognac Boots three days in a row, but the weather called for them. I am also sorry this is more of a Wintery Outfit rather than Springy but the first few days of the challenge; once again the weather was cold and rainy. The Spring Outfits (with my 30 pieces) are coming, guys, I promise. I will say though that I love this Cardigan. It is one of my many Cardigans from White House Black Market. The Jeans are from there too. They are the Noir cut but I also own some Blanc. If you don't own any Cardigans or Jeans from WHBM, check them out because they are really nice. They are a little bit expensive, but they are worth it when they go on sale plus they always send out coupons. How have you worn your Jeans lately? Do you own a Cardigan featuring any Floral or Frilly detail?
Pros: The Cardigan - it is Pretty, Girl, Springy and Unique. And I was having a good hair day.
Cons: This Outfit might be too safe, too simple, not very blog-worthy (but I am all about keeping it real). And the quality of the photos, they are a little grainy and blurry. Pretty Please Bear with my poor photos a little while longer, since my camera fell yet once again (some OOTD Photos are taken by my cell-phone), but I will be using a new camera, very soon.
