In the woods and Guest hosting What Wives Wear Link-up

February 5, 2015


Ever have days where you repeat outfits verbatim? I received the scarf and cardigan pictured from StyleGirl Boutique from a giveaway collaboration the shop did with blogger Ariel (thanks ladies) and have worn the scarf and cardigan with the exact same shirt, pants and boots two weekends in a row now and receive a lot of compliments. This scarf and cardigan are actually my hubbies favorite items on me, and I agree with him as they go with EVERYTHING! You can see how Ariel styled this same cardigan and scarf here.
I wore this outfit to my mother-in-laws 50th Birthday lunch, and got a moment to steal away in the woods with my hubby while he shot these photos. I am in love with the woods and missed walking in them even if just a few feet into wooded areas for these photos. It’s the little things in life that can make a day so nice, woods, hubby, birthday parties, a comfy casual and fun outfit. Need I say more.

Outfit details- Cardigan and Scarf (Style Girl Boutique)//Shirt: J.Crew (old)//Pants: DKNY jeans (old)//Boots: Belk.

I am excited to be guest co-hosting with Carrie and Sherri for the What Wives Wear Link Up today. I just love these two ladies and their blogs filled with inspiration, family, fashion and faith. Be sure to check them out and link up below.

    I just love your ‘in the woods’ title… I can see why your husband loves this outfit on you, you look great in it! That scarf looks so warm and soft! I love winning freebies from giveaways, especially when its something for my closet! I also like the stripes with it.

    You look so cozy chic! I’ve been finding myself in yoga pants and oversized sweaters lately, hence the lack of OOTD posts. Although, if I do find that I have to leave my apartment for one reason or another, I tend to grab something very similar to what you have above. I’ve got to get back in gear!

    Welcome back Rachel. Lots of link-ups as guest host this week. I love it. The type of outfit you are wearing is casual and put-together. This kind of outfit is a Winter uniform for me. You look great.

    This is a really cute look! All the pieces go together really well! I do the same thing, when I find pieces that go together well I wear them together at least a few times in a row! I think I need to work on my remixing skills 🙂 I also love the background of the woods! Very pretty!

  • Tif @ Bright on a Budget February 8, 2015 at 4:06 am

    This outfit looks great on you! And usually it’s the small things that matter the most. I’m so glad you had a wonderful day!
