Wearing: LOFT Military Sweater

Thursday, January 13, 2011

It's been one of those days.
Not the bad kind...the very good kind.
I gained some serious mileage on one of my projects, my four-year-old told me I was awesome,
and we had a smattering of sunshine for the first time in days.
Oh, and I managed not to burn this barn down...a definite upside to the day.
All that, plus I got a crazy awesome new header designed for me by
an artist friend who will very likely blow things up when he hits the professional scene.
So, you can see how a ho-hum day went from good to better to the best!

Don't forget to vote in the sidebar for the dress you want to see recreated (if you haven't already).

Same outfit, different day (I do that occassionaly, you know)...wear something more than once. I also wore this here...hehehe...but I wasn't gonna bore you with the EXACT same outfit in another post, so I threw them in here.


  1. Love the awesome header! And the outfit, the barn, and the horse! :). And Ii have not forgotten the picture I owe you! Looking forward to getting it to you, even though my attempts thus far have been thwarted in various, pathetic ways. :/

  2. Kristina your new header is very pretty and so sophisticated. I am always impressed by your sense of style. I am sure that this barn is just an ordinary barn but you made it looks so magic.


  3. Adore your new header! Very Unique and so Kristina J. Love your Jacket. I have seen one similar somewhere but it wasn't from Loft. You look so pretty with the candles and snow. I keep trying to grab one of those skirts on Pop Back. But nothing so far. Happy Late New Year. I just got my laptop back the other day.

  4. that sweater is gorgeous on you! I love it paired with the skirt, these photos are so lovely <3 especially with the candles!


  5. Love the sweater... and the pic with the horse is beautiful!


  6. A military style sweater? I've never seen one before, but I like it. Even better than a military style blazer. You look great in the barn with all those candles. Your four year old was right, you ARE awesome!

  7. Oh, I adore that sweater! I love the ruffle details! I had seen it in the store full price and now I'm wondering if there are any left with the 40% promo that's running. You look so gorgeous! Hooray for having a great day :)

  8. I love the new header!!
    That sweater is too cute. I pass by a Loft a lot on my way to work and kept eyeing this in the store window..wonder if there are any left!

  9. Hi Kristina!

    So nice to meet you! Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming my new follower. I love meeting new people especially women who create and are talented. You for on are. I adore your heading on your blog. did you create that? You have neat fashion sense, and your curls...umm I WANT THEM. CUTE!

    definantly a follower, and now reading on...


  10. Oh, Kristina, I LOVE that sweater and this outfit is SO great! =D You're so lovely in it, especially with your hair up. Thanks for sharing. (I'm going to pretend I didn't read the thing about the 40% off promo in Jan's comment).

  11. You are really rocking that sweater, Kristina! I tried it on so, so, so many times in the store, but just couldn't get it to work for me. I usually wear a 4 in LOFT, but the medium was much too snug on me...weird. Anyway, YOU look great in it. I think the contrast between the clean, polished look of the jacket works perfectly with the more casual feeling of the skirt. So fun!

    And I don't think I've said it yet -- I adore the new header. So darling!

  12. awesome photos. Im loving the long skirt and militarily jacket combo. Stay warm!

  13. Hi I was interested in hunting down this skirt on ebay can you tell me your thoughts on its sizing? I think we maybe close to the same size thanks- Jill jillkleeman@hotmail.com

  14. I love the new header SOOOOO much. Also this outfit is so pretty and I love those candles in the jars and the shot of you with them all around you.

  15. Your pictures are gorgeous and your blog so fun!!! thrilled to have found you!
