The last time I wore this sweater, I commented that it reminds me of something I would have worn when I was a little girl. In the spirit of that, I decided to style it in a way that is reminiscent of how I might have dressed when I was 8. Because hey, it's fun. And it's Friday. If you can't have fun on Friday, when can you have fun?
I can guarantee you that 8 year old Bethie would have worn this sweater with a jean skirt. Instead of leggings however, she'd probably be wearing those knit tights that almost look like a cable knit sweater - anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? They'd be pink. She'd finish out the outfit with buckled Mary Janes and probably a couple of plastic teddy bear barrettes in her hair. 8 year old Bethie wasn't super hip, but she could be sort of stylish!
What kinds of things was 8 year old Bethie into? Well, let's see, her favorite movie was The Little Mermaid, she was a Brownie Scout, she sang in her church's children's choir, her favorite after school activity was playing Barbies with her friends, she loved to ride her bike around the block and her favorite TV shows were Tiny Toon Adventures, Hey Dude and Reading Rainbow. Yep, I know I'm totally dating myself. If you haven't figured out by now that I'm 30 and grew up in the late 80's/early 90's, well, you know now! Some things have changed in 20 some odd years, but some apparently haven't!
Oh well, I love this sweater and I don't care if it takes me back to my youth! Everyone needs to let out their inner child every now and then! Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!!
