From Around The Web

by - February 22, 2018

Happy Friday friends!  I am back with another installment of 'From Around The Web'.  I love to put these together, I read a lot of articles on the internet daily but often after a question pops in my head.  Like earlier this week I randomly Googled 'Diddy lays down at the Met gala'.  Do you remember this image?  I have no idea why I was Googling it but here it is; Diddy.  Other silly topics I Google are things like, 'where to travel this Spring', 'how much is Nene Lekes worth?', 'how should I store my sweaters?'... you get the point.  This week I stumbled upon some fun articles about wine, travel, food, books and Netflix.  Also earlier this week I stopped by Old Navy and tried on a couple things.  If you are following me on Instagram you might have seen some of what I tried on already and you can shop my Instagram looks by downloading the Like To Know It App.  When I stopped by Old Navy I loved four pieces I tried one; this striped sweaterthis slub knit sweater in cremethis cactus print button up and this heart print button up.  The sweaters are similar in texture and oh so soft.  They are actually perfect for Spring.  Striped sweaters are really have a moment right and for that price you don't over pay for a trend.  The button ups are also similar, light and comfortable.  I was able to style them both a couple different ways.  Both prints are cheeky and would look so nice with jeans or jean shorts for Spring and Summer.  And a honorable mention to this striped blazer which was a little large on me (xs) but still very flattering.

Happy reading!
