RDP = Red Devil Pride, a frequent cheer heard at West Lafayette football games, basketball games, swim meets, etc.  I do want to show my team spirit and support my kids' school, really, I do, but honestly, I've had enough of the unflattering, crew neck, unisex t-shirts with the big screen print logo across the chest.  So I've been on the lookout for cute and stylish tops in scarlet and gray to wear to the frequent games and meets.  And this fun cardigan from Gap perfectly fits the bill.  The Striped Sequin Crew Cardigan, a wool blend with sequin detail on the sleeves and just-right stripes, lets me cheer on the Red Devils with a bit more style.  Go Westside!

Complete Strangers Have Stopped Me... the mall to tell me they love my coat!  And I just smile and say, "Thanks, I do, too!".  I ordered this from Nordstroms during the Anniversary Sale last August.  I can't say that I needed it... but I do know that I love it and wear it all the time.  The coat is the Asymmetrical Soft Shell Jacket by Miss Sixty.  It has a water resistant soft shell exterior with ribbed accents on the side and sleeves.  Faux fur lining makes the inside soft and cozy, and zipper accents on the cuffs and pockets add a bit of spunk.  I usually just tie the belt at the waist for a flattering silhouette.  And the best part of all... it seems to go perfect over everything - from skinny jeans to a pencil skirt and is so very, very comfortable.
