I know it seems a little more winter or early spring, but I say wear things when the mood strikes! I have a closet full of fun colors for this very reason. When I see something that is a great deal, I do a mental inventory of what other colors I have in my closet. The reason is twofold:
1) I like buying new colors I don't have to shake it up a bit.
2) I am thinking of what fun color combinations I have seen on Pinterest that
I want to recreate in real life on the cheap.
Here is the link to the look on Polyvore. All I had to do was see that the sweater was $295. Ummm, I have a perfectly beautiful mint sweater that cost $289 less than that.
And my look:
I bought my mint sweater because of reason #1 above. I didn't have anything like it in my closet. In fact, I tend to wear bright colors, so this feels a little more quiet and peaceful to me. Plus it was on clearance at Kohl's for $11...and is 100% cotton. Sold! I actually bought it with another beautiful sweater that was $13, and used a $10 off coupon...so final cost was more like $6. Even better than that, the cute tank underneath it was free from a good girlfriend who was tired of it. The tank has an adorable sparkly neckline that doesn't show up well in this photo. The jeans are $5 from Goodwill (Michael Kors, y'all!) and the shoes are $30 from 6pm.com. They are Dr. Scholl's and soooooo comfy.
All this cuteness for just $41. Can't beat that!
Here's the jewelry I would pair with it, from lia sophia:
