Oh Deer! - A Thread Share Post

 Outfit Details: Sweater: Swapped with Amanda, sold here // Hat: Handmade Gift // Dress & Shoes: Thrifted // Tights: Modcloth





Well hello there darlings!

It seems so long since I've come around these parts, but as you can imagine my sister's wedding down in SC had me quite busy as a bumblebee and I wouldn't have had it any other way.  The whole event was far too dreamy for words and quite the magical day it was with the perfect beachy, blue sky backdrop.  I promise down the road, there will be photos but first...

The very lovely Amanda of The Salvaged Strawberry and I decided that the second Thursday of each month, would be dedicated to thread-sharing (aka swapping) with one another as we both believe in wearing secondhand not to mention, we are both curvy gals so styling one another's wardrobe would be a fun little task to take on.  

Of course I was tickled pink when I opened up her package and laid my eyes on this cozy deer knit sweater.  Gah...how could I not be in love?  Anyhoo - this is how she styled it.  It's said that great minds think alike - and apparently that's exactly what we were doing when we threw it over a plaid dress.  


You can read more about the gal behind The Salvaged Strawberry and see more on how she styled this sweater by hopping over this way.  Better yet, if you fancy snagging this little beauty up for yourself, the sweater is happily nestled in Amanda's Etsy shop right here.

Wishing you a fantabulous Thursday darlings!  If you are on the northern east coast like me,  bundle up, start the fire, and stay warm!

Love Bunches,

  28. A deer sweater with plaid?! It's amazing! I love how both of you wore it in similar ways but definitely put your own unique spin on it! Yours are so beautiful, I love it with the red and your backdrop is stunning, this makes me be kind of okay with the fact that its about to get wintry!
    Happy Friday!

  38. This sweater is amazing! And of course you could pull it off with plaid and printed blue tights. Your color mixing is beautiful. And I cannot wait to see photos from her wedding and the beach -- especially if they are half as pretty as the engagement shots you did. Such a pretty little family you have.
