Chevron Stripes at the Park

My husband is obsessed with going to the park.  Seriously, he could spend all day there.  He loves laying in the grass, rolling around in it, and sleeping in it.  Let's be honest: I'm not one with nature.  While I don't mind doing things outdoors, like riding my bike and window shopping, I get a bit freaked out by the thought of rolling around in the grass.  But hey, I go along with my husband, let him hang out in the grass, and enjoy the scenery. :)

Also, I can't believe it, but I'm finally on Instagram!!!  Will Pinterest be next??  Maybe in the distant future.  You can follow me @ a_fashion_files.  I would encourage you to follow if you are interested in seeing more of my daily life, as opposed to just fashion.  I often snap photos on my phone of interesting art pieces I come across and quirky little things.  Of course, fashion will be a big part of it as well!  I also added a button on the right so you can easily follow!

AND I have something even more EXCITING!!! You can now STALK me on Currently Obsessed, which will allow you to see the items that I'm obsessing over and buy them if you are interested.  You can log in with your Facebook or sign up to stalk me on the page!  I'm so excited to keep track of my obsessions via CO!!!  (however, this could be dangerous! :)  I've also added a button for this on the right side of my page! :)  Happy Stalking!








Sweater: Missoni @ Target (how pretty is this chevron sweater?  and this one?)

  6. Haha, yeah rolling around in the grass is NOT something I'd do seeing as how I would start sneezing and itching like crazy. Dumb allergies...glad your husband can get away with it though.
    I love this park outfit! You look so pretty and stylish :)
    Love the striped cardi and those fantastic shoes!

  42. I love rolling around in the grass, though I'm terrified of bugs. What does your husband do all day at the park? I love your sweater by the way. So bummed that I wasn't in the country when Missoni for Target collection was launched.

    1. Thank you! Well, I can't think of the last time he spent all day at the park. But, if he could, he would probably roll around in the grass, pack & eat a picnic lunch, fly his remote-control airplane for a few hours, lay in the grass, and continue to roll around. I don't want to give him any ideas though. :)
