Not So Basic Blue

Not far from our apartment, there is an area full of giant old warehouses.  The crumbling brick facades make for a pretty cool background.
I'm a huge fan of comfy knit sweaters, even more-so when they have cool and interesting details like the asymmetrical hem and metallic coating on this one.
The bright sunny morning really brought out all the colors, the blues were brighter and the metallics and glitter details really popped.
I had to take advantage of the warm sun to put aside my warm winter jackets and wear one of my favorite leather jackets.
I can't resist this pink lipstick, it's the perfect super saturated hot pink.  A simple necklace of layered chains and the glitter shoes picked up the silver in the sweater and the gold in the jacket and necklace.
Who said a sweater and jeans has to be boring?
