Rise and Fall

Today I woke up, got to take my son to school without the other kids in tow since my husband had the day off, had a good run and then took my time getting ready for the day. I love it when there's a second set of hands around here to help out! It was over 90 degrees here today so I knew it was gonna be a skirt day...just too hot for anything else. I bought this skirt a few years ago and have always loved how light and airy it is. After seeing Tricia's post this morning where she wore her Rise and Fall cardigan I thought I'd pull mine out too and pair it with the skirt. There's one stripe of light pink in the cardigan that matched the color of the skirt perfectly. I had never even considered this as a possible pairing so it was a fun find.

Like I said it's been a hot day here today, and as luck would have it our air conditioner broke! We're waiting to see if the repairman can come up with the part to fix it before the night's end...sure hope so because it's a little toasty in here! Crossing my fingers. It's suppose to be in the 90's for a few more days so I may be busting out a few more dresses and skirts before the week's end...fall oh fall, will you ever arrive???


  1. I love that you paired this cardi with a pink skirt. I think I would have reached for something expected like jeans or khakis, but your combo is absolutely perfect. I am wishing I had bought this sweater -- it is too cute for words!

  2. Love that cardi with the pink! And I hear you on the weather, I am so ready for some crisp fall weather already!

  3. Whewee - it was hot today in the city! Loved it! I love your outfit - that cardi is great

  4. Love that cardigan. You look great in it. Very pretty! I'm sad I missed this cardigan. I keep seeing all you ladies look so cute in it. Makes me even more sad that I didn't get it.

  5. So cute!!! I love pink paired with that cardi!!

  6. You look adorable. I hear you, this heat has got me lusting for fall!!

  7. I love that cardi - the colors are just so cute for Fall! I hope your AC was fixed quickly...and that soon enough you won't even need it ;)

  8. My AC broke down in the middle of a heatwave last month so I feel your pain sister!

    Love the outfit, the cardi looks great paired with the pink skirt and the yellow shoes

  9. Cool combination. I love when people are original!!

  10. You're the first gal I've seen bring out the pink in that cardi and I love it with the frilly skirt. What a great combo - you look great!
