Hey everyone, and welcome to fall! I guess the Equinox just happened? Not Equinox like the gym, but Equinox like that thing where the Earth goes around the sun and then it’s another season? I don’t know. I’m not an expert on astronomy or meteorology, but I am an expert on cute sweatshirts. I bought this particular cute sweatshirt earlier in the month, but I saved it until it got little more…you know…autumnal.

P.S. If you’re a fellow blogger, let’s start off the new season with a “Pin Party.” Pin a photo from this post (the first one is my personal favorite), then leave me a comment with a link to your blog, and I’ll pin one of your photos, too. I’ve never understood the whole “follow for follow” thing on social media, but “share for share” seems much more fun and productive. Let’s give it a try.

According to feedback from the survey I posted earlier this week, most of you guys read what I write down here under the pictures. I was hoping I would find out that no one reads this crap so I could stop trying so hard to think of clever things to say. Because some days, even really awesome and hilarious people like me just run out of things to say. So then they have to talk about how they have nothing to say. And then that’s awkward. And then they might as well just move on and tell you where their clothes came from.

I have a couple people to thank for helping me with this outfit.

First is Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook, who recently posted this yellow top/green bottom outfit. The weather was hideously cold this day, so my freakishly warm cashmere cardigan was the only thing I could think about wearing. I probably would have worn plain ol’ blue jeans, but I had just seen Wendy’s outfit the day before so I busted out the green. I do love an unexpected color combo.

The second person to thank is Patricia, one of my readers who also makes jewelry and who sent me this blue and white beaded necklace. To keep from looking too First Ladyish in my lace and cardigan, I layered it over my spike necklace. I really like how it turned out!

Patricia sells other unique pieces in her Etsy shop, and for the rest of this month, she is offering 25% off any order just for Sarah’s Real Life readers. Find her shop here and use the code “REALLIFE1” for your discount!
