Reworked

Sweater: Knitted by the Husband's Nana (similar here), Shirt: Forever 21, Jeans: Just USA (similar pair)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Bag: Foley & Corinna, Shoe clip worn as Brooch: Vintage

Was feeling very Spring-y in this getup yesterday...
Picked up this bright top over the weekend and wasn't feeling the belt
so I reworked it into a neck tie and added a vintage brooch! 
Always good to shake things up a little bit.. :)

How was your weekend?
xo,
Nicole
