Something Old, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

A t-cup to match my t-shirt
I recently came across this blue sparkly sweater that my mom was planning on throwing out. It was hers from years ago (perhaps even decades) and I always loved the crisp blue color and the sheen from the interwoven sparkly thread. I decided to salvage the sweater and had my mom wash it in hot water and dry it in the hopes that it would shrink.

I love the look of the sweater, how it is both casual since it is a bit loose and baggy, but also a little dressed up from the sparkle. I wore this to my first day back to class after winter break and paired it with jeans and a comfy white cardigan on top. On a cold Manhattan day that had a low of 7° I needed to keep warm but also stand out on my first day back.
