Chambray and Tweed

Whoopsie! Unintentional month-long blog break. Something about the holidays, a touch of what might be Seasonal Affective Disorder (I’ve been taking Vitamin D and I’m considering a Happy Light), and a lack of inspiration and I somehow vacated my little blog here. Ok, I’ll try to be better – let’s do this thing!

These pictures were obviously taken some time ago. Why is that so obvious? Because there is not two thousand feet of snow on the ground, that’s why. Ok, more like a foot or so, but still.


Brown tweed skirt: H&M (old)
Chambray shirt: Banana Republic (old)
Brown tights: J.Crew
Tan suede booties: Audrey Brooke (DSW) (old)
Orange necklace: vintage


One sure fire way to brighten my mood is with a punch of a bright citrus color, like this vintage necklace. I love these orange beads, and think they really complement chambray – like a little wink and a nod to South West style.

How do you combat the winter blues?

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.

  1. I love the orange beads! Where’d you get them? And you’re right about the S.A.D. taking hold. I’ve been drinking lots of herbal/citrus tea to keep me from getting too cold and remind me of summer when it will be warm and bright again. That’s the best remedy I’ve come up with so far!

      I believe I got them at the Brunswick Flea Market for a couple bucks a few years ago. Love that place!

      Herbal tea is great, my favorites is currently a peachy one that makes me feel like summer!

        Hmm I’ve never been to the Brunswick Flea Market! I’ll definitely have to go, though. It’s been ages since I went to a real flea.

        My favorite tea right now is lemon zinger, but I honestly could use more peach in my life!
