This cardigan is no longer available because I bought it in high school. That feels like such a triumph for me. It has lasted, it still fits, it’s a fantastic color, and I still love to wear it. ROCK.

Already Pretty Daily Outfit 1/11/11 featuring circle skirt

And yes, I’m wearing head-to-toe teal if you don’t count the gunmetal gray accessories. This skirt arrived in the mail yesterday and I just couldn’t resist building an outfit around it. Somehow, monochrome seemed like the best bet!

    Love it

  • What’s cool about this outfit is how well all of the slightly different shades of teal compliment each other. That skirt is beautiful, I don’t blame you for wearing it right away!

  • If I had just received that skirt in the mail I would have had to wear it too!! So pretty and the mono look is marvelous!

  • This outfit makes me smile it’s so fantastic! You look lovely. Teal is a fantastic colour on you!

  • Love the monchromity (i think I just made up a word. oh well :P). Teal is a beautiful color.

  • I LOVE this colour on you – and the outfit is so delightful.

  • That whole outfit is lovely! The colours all look great together.

  • Rosie

    Haha! I have a very similar silk cardigan from BR from way back in the day, too! Has held up unlike any other sweater.

  • Donna

    The teal is fabulous on you! Love the skirt especially…although the gunmetal peep-toes run a close second.

  • I love the teal color. I ned to try amonochromatic look like this some time.

  • Lindsey

    I love your monochromatic look! I may have to do this.

  • Diana

    My favorite color! Love it.

  • Omg, that’s a gorgeous ensemble!

  • The monochrome of teal is gorgeous and inspiring!

  • I’m in awe that you’ve had that sweater for so long. Isn’t it cool when pieces stick around and become such a part of our styles?

    I always love your monochrome looks — they’re very inspiring!

  • poodletail

    I adore the black pearls with this ensemble.

  • Ahhhh, this is a jade dream! I love that shade of green! I love the subtle differences between each piece, too!

  • As gorgeous as ever and in one of my favourite colours. I always learn something from you Sal – today I am learning that you can totally build an outfit around a single colour without it looking silly. You rock! (And high school cardigan rocks too.)

    So pretty! Love the shine in the skirt. The BR sweater looks new! The shoes are perfect with the outfit. What color coat would you wear with this?

    • Sal

      Oh gosh! It’s so cold here, I just throw my down parka over everything and it’s black. But in my ideal world? Brick red or magenta. And if those aren’t available, gray to match the accessories.

      • lucky

        Wow, Brick red or Magenta would be a knock out combo. I know what you mean, though, about the big down coat over everything.

  • Erin

    Oooh, I love this one! Gorgeous. And, props to you for shopping at Banana in high school. I think most of my clothes that weren’t flannel (does that date me or what?) came from, like, the Buckle or something. I have loved teal and gray since then though. Fun!

  • You look gorgeous in teal! And your cardi looks brand new! I guess you can’t beat good quality and taste ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Love this outfit!! The skirt is just adorable ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Gorgeous colour! Thank you for being so inspiring.

  • Teal – yummy color and you look sooo pretty! I love how sleek yet curvy (sorry, might not be saying that correctly) the monochromatic silhouette looks!

  • I love this outfit. You look stunning in it! My fave has to be the skirt. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Love, love, love this!

  • rb

    I love a head to toe one-color outfit, especially with all the different textures and gradations of the color. Love it. Good on you!

  • Oh my you look gorgeous in this! Stunning actually. I am inspired by your color combinations! It’s what keeps me coming back! (among other things)

  • Yowza! Loving the monochrome look, Sal! And kudos on the high school cardigan. I think the only remaining remnants of my high school closet are a pair of boxy cargo shorts that Joe could probably fit into.

  • I love the teal with gunmetal gray! That’s such an unexpected color combination. You look so vibrant and happy in it!

  • great color!! it’s my first time stopping by your blog and I love the teal!! I am in a teal tank under a sweater today… I just bought it and I want to add more to my wardrobe for sure!! Looks like I need to check out BR. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Elizabeth

    See, I would have worried that all the tones didn’t match, but I think that it looks great! I should worry less about matching precisely.

  • Oh goodness! This is insanely beautiful! I love the head to toe teals!

  • Oh, Sal, this is just lovely! You look stellar – very “Mad Men” in the head-to-toe colour!

  • Love the monochrome look. Who says monochrome has to be black or white? You’re working this beautifully.

  • If I didn’t know better I’d say, “high school? What’s the big deal?” But you have mentioned your age before and being around the same age, I must assume you placed in safely in a time capsule! I have one very old Flock of Seagulls t-shirt in a box somewhere…

    Teal agrees with you, I’m a big fan of it myself.
