Hello Real World

I am back from my fabulous vacation, but unfortunately somewhere along the way home I picked up a stomach virus.
Yea, the real world is no fun at all.
I want to go back to my vacation life!
I received this sweater as a birthday gift from
 my sister-in-law and brother. 
 I think it is just so much fun!!
I paired it with cobalt skinnies,
 but I am also thinking mustard or red will fabulous as well.
I added a collar necklace for some neckline detail
 and
 the boot socks just because I love the way they look.
I actually wore this outfit the day before I left for my vacation. 
 Right now I am in my pj's laying in bed, wishing I could have an immediate stomach transplant.

How would you style this crazy, colorful sweater?

sweater-ModCloth
necklace-ASOS
skinnies-JBrand

Welcome back! Sorry you are feeling bad though. This sweater is so perfect! I love how you paired it with the cobalt skinnies. I would pair it with a black pencil skirt and a gingham button up underneath. Feel better soon. Heather

Oh dear, I'm sorry you are ill, Brett. And after your wonderful trip too!
Still, your sweater is fabulous, it looks as though it has been inspired by abstract/cubist art. And the bright blue jeans are great.
Hope you feel lots better soon. xxxx

Oh my goodness, what a great sweater! And I love that collar necklace too; I've been thinking about getting one and you've encouraged me to pull the trigger.

Feel better!

OH no! I'm sorry. That stomach bug is SO awful. This is such a fun look! I think yellow or red would be great as well...

Well..*sigh* there is not a single thing you are wearing that I can wear..and that is only because I am NOT thin anymore and I am OLD!
:) I'm NOT a single bit jealous..no I am NOT, NOT, NOT!
(lies, all lies!) :)

Wait! Hold everything! How...about...the sunglasses! :):)

No, returning to the real world after a fabulous vacation is not fun, returning ill, is absolutely not fun.

I hope you feel better this weekend.

I think you styled that sweater perfectly! With a pretty casual outfit, the awesome colour blocks just pop so nicely.

A beautiful sweater and a lovely outfit. I love this cheerful combination of colors. The glasses and boots are beautiful.

Brett, I hope you're feeling better by the time you read this. I love how you styled this super cool sweater. The collar necklace is a great detail.

Love this look... very bold but still seems wearable :)

I love vacation world! And I love cobalt! And I've been thinking about trying a colorful skinny jean. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh no! The stomach flu is my idea of a lousy souvenir. I had the same bug two weeks ago and my friend in San Diego had it last week. It seems to enjoy traveling, too :-(
The outfit, however, is whimsical and very cute on you. Feel better soon!

Teddi said...

oh brett, i'm so sorry you're sick! b :( your outfit screams the 80's. did you ever see that old TV show starring sarah jessica parker and jami gertz called square pegs? it reminds me of that.

I had a very mild bug the past few days. Stomach things turn me into a big baby!
