the crochet sweater.

Anyone else feel a little weird when they shop in younger stores (like American Eagle for example) when you're approaching 30. I used to have a problem with it, but then decided, hey if its cute, and it fits (and most likely more affordable) -- why not? That's where this crochet sweater is from and I'm not ashamed! Plus you're only as young as you feel right?
I also have this sweater in a reddish pink color seen {here}
And oh hey, it's Monday -- Let's do this!
Outfit Details
Crochet sweater: American Eagle (similar) // Leather jacket: gift from D (similar) // Jean: Express
Heels: Vince Camuto (fun option) // Key necklace: Kay's Open Heart Collection (similar)
Bag: Louis Vuitton

And some outtakes because they're just funny. 
These were my expressions as D took my picture saying, "work it, work it, love it!"
He takes his job of blog photographer very seriously. Clearly.

Happy Monday everyone -- let's make it a great week!

  2. I'm almost 30 too and I still shop in those stores...heck, I shop in the kids' sections which is sometimes awkward! :) LOVE your sparkly heels!

  3. I'm with you on the photographer front. My husband loves to be a "professional blogger photographer." He really gets into it and even can tell when the pics are of me with a tripod versus his work, gets mad and says "you need a professional's touch."

    Looking awesome!

    Happy Monday!

  4. Love your outfit and I totally know how you feel. I have a hard time going into Forever 21 being that i'm 34, but somethings I can wear there. Love your sweater and those heels are to die for.



  5. Wow great shoes!

    If you get a sec, check out my latest post 'Casual Meets Chic'. I would love to hear what you think of my new tweed skirt and how I styled it.

    Hope you had a great weekend.


  6. I totally feel that way when I got into younger stores but I agree...if it's cute, who cares! Plus you can tell the things that are clearly "younger"...they are usually things we will never buy now! :)

  7. I'm silly about shoes being comfy. Do those shoes hurt your feet? Also, I'm 34 and shop at American Eagle. I feel better than I did when I was 21, so I don't think it's a big deal. Then again, I don't just buy anything in there. ;-)


  8. love the leather jacket over the crochet sweater :) great look! x

  9. You look so cute! I just try to stay away from anything from a younger store that has that store's logo on it, otherwise it is fair game :)

  10. I think if you can fit in the junior section, its appropriate, and its cheaper...GO FOR IT! I like the top on you, especially paired with the leather jacket.


  11. Cute top!! If it fits I say go for it, stores like American Eagle don't have to be just for teens.
