I saw this combination – chartreuse, denim, leopard, and red – in some magazine ages ago, and have been looking for some way to make it work myself ever since.

Gah. It’s a good thing that I spent ALL of today in my frigid, air-conditioned office building because long sleeves in this heat would be unbearable. This sweater has nearly been cast into the donation bin about a dozen times, but I just can’t seem to part with it. This might be its most successful outing to date! read more
