Grandma's Sweater.










Pink Knitted Sweater, Earrings: Thrifted.
Black Jeggings: Forever21.
Black Stilettos: Burlington Coat Factory.
Scarf: Target.

Hello there everyone!
No, this sweater actually isn't my grandmother's, but it sure feels like it. When I saw this pink knitted sweater at a rummage sale a few weeks ago, I was unusually drawn to it for some reason...and I'm not a sweater person in the least bit! I know it's unsightly and ugly but I can't help but love it oh so much... Its big, roomy arms are so cozy to snuggle into and drift off into a pleasant slumber (like in the middle of AP Calc class!)... The sweater is just filled so much with comfort and nostalgia. Almost like when I was a little girl and I would run around in my grandma's sweater flapping my arms as the fabric hung beyond my hands. For some reason this sweater makes me want to do that again. So maybe this means I'm too much of a little kid on the inside still.
Yes, I think that's probably my case ;)

With much love, Lauren.

P.S. Thank you all for the beautiful words on my last post... I'm ever so grateful!

I love the outfit! My dad has those kind of sweaters, so I steal his all the time haha! They really are so comfortable though.

I think your pink sweater looks incredibly comfy! I like it styled with the black pants and heels. Your earrings are very cool too.
I have memories of napping in AP Calc - you reminded me of them. I didn't have a cozy sweater like this though!

You look like you stayed very warm today! But still managed to look amazingly stylish too:) I've been seeing more and more hoodies pop up, but wearing just an Abercrombie hoodie, skinny American Eagle jeans, and Uggs just don't really cut it as stylish. I am totally going to go and get more cozy sweaters:) <3

I love everything about these pictures. The sweater, the earrings, the heels, your make-up. So effortlessly beautiful!
I don't think you have to wear sweat-pants to feel comfortable and cozy in your clothes.
You're amazing. I love your style! (You can't tell you're an inspiration to me. haha.)

I love big snuggly sweaters too! I have this crazy bright red duffle jumper that a good friend knitted for me that I just don't take off when I get back home from school! It's totally unfashionable and doesn't have a fitted shape but I adore it!

You kinda look like one of the Pink Ladies from Grease. Just saying.

Many institutes are there with their great faculties where you can join to learn PHP. They will provide you with notes and practical experience and you need to learn it properly. There are many institutes in Bangalore which provides an opportunity to work on live project. This is really a great opportunity for you as a fresher. Major task: Learn organisational rules and norms, learn jobs , chose right occupation and organization, increase competence, pursue goals. Believe that you are the best candidate for the job. Hoping, wishing, or even badly wanting it is not enough, and it may even go against you. Just as it happens when looking for love, giving out a vibe of neediness, may put your interviewers right off.
