Stripes and Plaid

Well you guys, it’s almost Thanksgiving. Which means it’s almost Christmas, which means a holly jolly striped sweater and plaid scarf is totally appropriate. Ho ho ho!

Flair jeans: Urban Outfitters
Striped sweater: Forever 21
Plaid scarf: Purchased at Century 21 in New York years ago
Boots: L.L. Bean
Watch: Michael Kors

Camel coat: Kenneth Cole
Purse: vintage Dooney and Bourke (I have it on good authority that there will be another similar on at the SWAPmaine Holiday Swap Soiree)

The combination of these jeans plus this jacket plus the plaid makes me feel very 1970′s. And I like it.

Ok, because I feel like it – here are some fashion blogger outtakes:

Here I am pointing at a mystery poo in our yard. It wasn’t Franklin – WHO WAS POOPIN’ IN MY YARD?!

Speaking of Franklin, here is a little mother / fur-son bonding time before work. Love my little pumpkin.

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.
