A sweater dress and a Beck Sondergaard scarf

It's in the 90s in Arizona already and I'm wearing a sweater dress. Clearly, I'm in denial that summer has come so soon. But guys, I got this on super sale for barely anything so I just had to wear it. I decided to brighten it up with a summery scarf to make it a little more season-appropriate. 

Do any of you guys remember this scarf from my Anthro Picks a few weeks back? It has amazing colors and shapes and trees and hot air balloons on it! I thought it belonged to me because the day I discovered it, I saw hot air balloons in the sky and it made my heart smile. Well, good things come to those who wait because it went on super sale and I (naturally) snagged it up. I just love it and can't stop looking at it. For those who are interested in finding a similar scarf, the artist is Beck Sondergaard and it turns out they make tons of illustrated whimsical scarves. I'm so glad Anthro carried this one, because it looks like they don't have any stockists outside of Europe.

Today, I'm going to work on making business cards for the Arizona Blogger Conference. Is anybody going? I'm also going to play Super Mario on Wii with Matt's little sister... I'm always the yellow mushroom and I often squeal with how cute it is.

    I adore that scarf! And you truly are a brave soul to be wearing a sweater dress right now.

  9. Kristine.

    I usually hate sweater dresses (it's a mutual thing) but this one is AMAZING. I want it! Ahh. You look adorable (duh) and I like how you brightened up an otherwise seasonally-inappropriate look.

    Kristine you look adorable! The brown/black/lemon look so perfect with your colouring (I love tobacco brown)... oh and I'm so jealous of your warm weather, it's done nothing but rain in the UK since they said we're in drought (yeah, right)!!!
