I adore the color combo of red+turquoise so when I spotted this little cotton heart sweater during the fall, it spoke to me. I'm not generally a "heart person", but I love the playfulness & funky-prep this little gem offers.
It's really a simple little thing that I'll likely tire of before the year is out, but that's ok since it set me back about $13!
I paired it with navy mini-dot skinnies (another super deal at Old Navy for $9!), Frye boots, & the super new CAbi convertible jacket (the sleeves zip off!)
There are so many affordable options in the novelty sweater department right now, they're literally in every store. Why not use Feb as an excuse to sport one with love? (oh, & this trend works for ALL ages. It will infuse a sense of playfulness & whimsy, and I guarantee you'll get compliments!)
Certain trends warrant spending money on, others really don't. Find a cute heart (or other novelty) top for under $30 & don't feel bad about it!
