Forget the Rules







Sweater – Made by my mom!
Jeans – Joe Fresh
Boots – Gojane.com
Purse – Vintage

This is a sweater that my mom knit herself long before I was even born.   Years later, here I am sporting the homemade creation! I bet she never imagined that both her daughters would love it so much as adults! Neat, hey?

Although this sweater has a cool history, it’s not exactly the most flattering shape.   But who cares.  Sometimes you have to break the “what’s best for your body shape” rules and just wear what you like.  I don’t mind looking like a box some days as long as I like what I am wearing.  Not to mention it keeps me super warm and cozy!

Anyone else wear their parent’s clothing from the 80’s? Haha...

XO, Andrea
