Wow, this outfit has three stories to it, and all are so not related!
1. After weeks of rain and dreary weather, it seems like Spring has finally Sprung! I know I have been celebrating this fact for a few entries now, but I wanted to tie it all in with an outfit perfect for Spring!
2. We all have those favorite articles of clothing that seem to find their way into every outfit we wear, a go to piece that seems to reflect who you are. Well about 5 years ago I bought myself a cardigan from Urban Outfitters. Very plain, nothing too crazy, in a dark green. Fitted, v-neck, thin. I LOVED that sweater and probably wore it upwards of 2 times a week for two years. Then one day, it was gone. I lost it at my old grad school somewhere. Ran all over campus trying to find it, but nothing. I have searched for years to replace that cardigan, about a month ago I found this one which is almost an exact match. And it cost me around $9 full price!

When I took this Charlie was being such a little attention whore! I couldn't get him to get out of the way of the shoes. Those are a favorite right now and I really wanted to show them off. I subscribe to the idea that animals are like people, so when I asked him if he wanted his picture taken this was his response:
After that he sit down and got out of the way. So silly.
PS. Note: This picture is a few weeks old already. You see that Modcloth box? It contained the gift basket I mailed out to Kaye when she won the first gift basket giveaway. The paper wrapped parcel was an item bought from the garage sale.
