Beige…My One and Only

Until I brought this little pointelle sweater home from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I didn’t own anything beige. None. Zip. Nada. Is that weird?

Normally, when I try on something in a beige color, it blends in to much with my skin tone and I just look…boring…or naked…whichever.

But when I saw this little sweater styled on a mannequin, with a button down layered underneath, I thought it was so completely adorable that I had to at least try it. The ingenious thing about this outfit is the button down collar frames my face in a complexion-friendly color, keeping the beige from blending into my skin tone.

This little sweater is in juniors sizes, and luckily, runs quite a bit small. I’m wearing a size small, which is amazing considering I just dropped off a bunch of extra-extra-small-petite items at my tailor to take-in. I dug through a mess of sweaters and sale items, frantically in search of a size extra-small, because I just assumed a size small wouldn’t cut it. As it turns out, a size small is the smallest this sweater comes in, and I was pleasantly surprised in the fitting room when it fit!

This little sweater is currently on sale for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which ends August 1st.

Do I look ready for fall or what? You’d never guess that earlier this day, it was in the 80’s and humid!
