Red, White & Blue
This outfit has inspiration from a couple sources. The first place was RAGS against the MACHINE, where Terri is picking all of her outfits this year according to a color of the month. This month's color is blue, and I've so enjoyed seeing her blue ensembles thus far, and naturally, it's made me want to wear blue. The other place I drew inspiration was from Linda's 4th of July outfit a couple of weeks ago. I thought about adding red to blue myself earlier this month, when Charlotte suggested I brighten up my winter looks, and I really liked Linda's use of a white sweater with red and blue, despite it being winter (I don't know, that old rule about no white after Labor Day has stuck in my head forever, even though I know we don't have to subscribe to those anymore). And how little do I wear white when it's not spring and summer? A quick scan of the blog shows that I haven't worn this cardigan since August!
