I took advantage of the Black Friday/Weekend promo at Emerson Fry of 45% off and bought another Yoshi Sweater, this time in Natural. I stayed with the same size as my Midnight Red sweater, an XS. I get so many compliments when I wear either one. I think because it looks so oversized and cozy.


I’ve already worn the Natural color several times, just keeping it very casual.

This was super casual after a lunch of Mexican Food. I changed into the Fair Isle Leggings and lounged the rest of the day watching football.

I debated for a while between the Natural, which was full-price plus 45% off, or the Charcoal, which was (and still is) $128. In the end, the Natural won out and I’m so happy with it. Oddly, it didn’t come with any tags on it, including the “do not remove if you want to return tag”. But that all worked out since I kept the sweater.

Have a Great Day!

I said you would be seeing these Fair Isle Leggings soon. I really love when I like something so much I wear it immediately. I confirms that I didn’t make a mistake in the purchase. Which has happened a lot in the past.

And if you didn’t catch my Shoes-day post, go buy these Frye Melanie Slip-ons.

I was browsing for some shoes and came across these Melanie Slip-On Sneakers by Frye. They looked like a great alternative to a ballet flat and less bulky than the slip-on sneakers.


I ordered my normal size 7. I tried them on as soon as they arrived. But when I slipped my foot in, without any struggle or using my hands, they were the most dreamy comfortable pair of shoes I think I’ve ever owned. They were a little snug across the top of my foot but within minutes the leather seemed to stretch out. I would stick with your normal shoe size because they will stretch.


From the outside, it looks like these Slip-Ons have no support but the inside is all leather and well padded. There must be memory foam or something in there. I wasn’t going anywhere but these shoes didn’t leave my feet the rest of the evening.


I bought them in black as well and as soon as I see MamaBella, I’ll make sure she likes them before getting her a pair too.


You have to get a pair. I’m not kidding. If there ever was a single pair of shoes to own, the Melanie Slip-on Sneaker is it. And, they come in a array of colors and styles.

I live in these shoes right now. I could almost get rid of all my other shoes and wear these forever. Almost.
