OOTD: winter watermelon

Cardigan // Top: Target (similar) // Jeans // Necklace: JCrew via Ebay // Shoes

I'm often drawn to wearing bright colors in the winter, like this watermelon pink top. I guess there was some unwritten rule somewhere that winter is the season to wear neutrals...but I'm a born rule breaker.* Also, now that I've posted this photo, I fully realize that the two pictures on the right are reminiscent of the old "kneel down on your shoes" trick to make your legs look really short. Eh... And you should forgive the crooked waistband. I have 10 seconds to walk from behind the camera to my position and post. Slight wardrobe malfunctions will just have to happen. HA!

*I'm really not a rule breaker. I'm actually a huge rule follower but I like to think I could break fashion rules.  I mean, I have worn white after Labor Day...

Linking up with MollyLindsey and Miram.
