Blaze Orange

I wore this outfit last week on a rather gloomy day. I must have been inspired by hunters wearing blaze orange in the woods. My cardigan certainly stands out against the blah background.

Side note, as I was google image searching for blaze orange I across this webpage. Pretty hot stuff, no? Nothing like skimpy, camo print nightwear!

Gray dress: Banana Republic
Orange cardigan: thrifted J.Crew
Belt: vintage Talbot’s (gift)
Watch: Michael Kors
Shoes: Cole Haan outlet

Speaking of these shoes, I am totally obsessed with them. I got them at the Cole Haan outlet during their Thanksgiving week sale. Everything in the store was half off, plus I had a 20% off coupon. Super sale! I love the loafer look, but with a ballet flat style. I’ve been wearing them all the time.

Are you an outlet lover? I totally am; I never pay full price for anything. I’m lucky enough to live near Freeport, ME, home of the L.L.Bean flagship store and some really great outlet stores. I love it because it isn’t laid out like a typical outlet mall, but instead the stores line the streets of downtown. Love me a bargain!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
