Although she is only 7 days older than me, I often think of my BFF, A, as the older sister I never had. If you get really drunk and stand in a dark room and squint you might even think we are related. Although our physical resemblance is sadly limited to the fact that we are roughly the same size and have dark hair, I often ignore this fact. So when A and I made the realization a few years back that she was an Autumn and not a Winter as we had assumed, I decided that I should be one too.

Now the fact of the matter is that A is classically gorgeous with lovely fair skin that really does look lovely in camels and autumnal hues. Whereas my dark olive skin tends to blend poorly with the same colors. But that doesn't stop me from wanting to look like her and choosing clothing that looks way better on her than on me. Such as this sweater.

Sweater: J. Crew (gift from friends)
Jeans: Citizens for Humanity via Goodwill
Boots: Frye
Scarf: ? gift from my dad's former girlfriend

You realize, of course, that I'm obsessed with these posts, yes? And that I think I know who the elusive A is and that both hubby and I think you're both gorgeous (or as my Brooklyn granny would say -- bee-you-tee-ful inside and out!) Killing me with this particular ensemble because it's also a K-ish kind of look.
