The argyle sweater

These are some of my first pictures from the office - it's a little weird getting dressed for work again!  I wore a similar version of this outfit last spring - seen here - during the Pantone color challenge week.  And funny story, when I wore it, I knew I was pregnant, but I hadn't told anyone yet besides Mr. Monkey!

I love argyle, so I love the pattern on this sweater and it's nice and bright which helps on a dreary winter day. And cardigans and nursing camis are kind of my best friend these days.  It really makes things easier for nursing and pumping!

Sweater - Talbots, thrifted
Cami - Motherhood Maternity
Pants - Express, consignment
Shoes - Etienne Aiger, consignment 

Speaking of argyle sweaters - that is one of my favorite comic strips, The Argyle Sweater.  I have a "cartoon of the day" calendar on my desk that is The Argyle Sweater and I love it.  It makes me laugh.  I've been known to keep my favorites and pin them on my bulletin board at work.  You have to make your workplace fun right?


  1. i've never heard of that comic, but i love how bright and springy you are today!

  2. I love your sweater! It is very bright and cheery on yet another cold winter day!

  3. The yellow is fabulously cheery! I need all the brights I can get during the winter!

  4. I love the bright and cheery yellow cardigan! And yes, I agree, anything to make your workplace a little more fun.

  5. Wow, I can't believe you are back to your job schedule. Did that time go by as fast to you, as it did to me? I love that cheerful argyle sweater. I remember it. You look great!

  6. Next to stripes, argyle is one of my favorite patterns. You look very sunny, which is good given how cold it's been. :)

  7. Argyle is such an awesome pattern!

  8. I love your outfit including your pants. I have only just started to wear pants (trousers because I am from the UK) and like the style of yours because I like to dress modestly at all times. I have started a blog on my experiences


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
