Yesterday, we talked about my Rue 21 finds, and here’s another that I just couldn’t pass up.  Actually, I almost did miss this one and was about to put the other items back (I have this thing sometimes when I’m shopping that if I don’t REALLY want it, I’m too lazy to stand in line, even if said items are only $3 and $5 respectively).  But, as I was walking to the racks to put those items away, I came across this cardigan which was just too perfect to pass up, even with a steep $11 price tag.

So, I gathered my other clothes again, waited in line, and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the tag was wrong, and this adorable baby was only $3 too!  My high-waisted button shorts (buttons not pictured) were also from that magical shopping day ($5), and of course, my Sam Moon America necklace perfected the ensemble.  With my over-the-knee boots, I was ready for a fall evening that really felt more like summer.
