Yes, I am literally wearing my a heart on my sleeve. I actually got this cute cardigan probably a year ago and this is the first time I’ve actually worn it. I had all of these grand plans for wearing it in the past but it always just sat in my closet and stared at me, but I was just saving it for the perfect outfit.  I am happy to say that nothing in this outfit is really “new” (yay for remixing), except the necklace that just ties all of the colors and pieces together, don’t you say?  Noonday Collection (where the necklace is from) is an accessories company that uses fashion and design to create economic opportunity for the vulnerable. Noonday Collection’s first trunk show was hosted by their founder, Jessica Honegger, as a fundraiser for her son’s adoption from Rwanda and has quickly grown into a movement across the country.  They have a great collection of jewelry, home, accessories and I am totally eyeing this scarf too!

On a related note, I really do wear my heart on my sleeves most the time. I cried in the movie Liar, Liar and I will never let myself live that one down.

    I love it! Such a sweet detail. I’ve never cried in a movie before, so I guess I don’t wear it figuratively on my sleeve, but I would totally wear it literally with that cute design. Adorable.

    I love this look! I have seen heart patches sewn on tees recently and I think it is such a cute embellishment! Susan
