I wandered into Forever 21 this weekend in search of some sparkly party-appropriate pieces for upcoming events, but quickly became sidetracked when this sweater caught my attention.  Just when I was trying to stick to my shopping list, this cardigan had to go and tempt me.  At first sight, it looked like it belonged layered over a diaphanous lace dress on the pages of a Free People catalog. Perhaps that's why I gravitated towards it; I imagined styling it in a slightly bohemian way with a nod to rock 'n' roll.  Its mix of colors and dual front pockets makes it an effortless throw-on-and-go companion to my arsenal of oversized Men's tees, skinny jeans and ankle boots.

On the subject of boots, Steve Madden's Hapmtinn boots are the latest addition to my rapidly growing collection of ankle boots with heels under 3".  The high comfort factor and quadruple buckle detail have me seriously considering buying them in black (and applying for the Steve Madden Shoe Addict Club).  The pretty Australian Shepherd that approached me while these photos were taken must have liked them too. Or perhaps the dog's owner, a friendly young guy who inquired if I was taking photos for a match.com profile, to which I hid my surprise and replied with a grin, "Oh! Nah. These are blog photos!"
