Ok, so there is Shark Week, and then there is Shrug Week. I am in love with shrugs, boleros, or any other cropped typed of top. I have a few, and will try and style them this week. They just happen to work for me. I think because an empire waist is so flattering on me and this makes a great topper. They are even more important to me in the summer to hide the bingo arms....

Details~The shrug or bolero ( I think the difference between them is in the amount of fabric on the bodice. A shrug just covers the shoulders and a bolero has material in the front) is 100%wool, and is a marled brown. It fits perfectly, and is NOT itchy. It's about 10 years old, (J. Peterman has been out of business for a long time) and still has not pilled! I love ethnic prints--I don't tire of them as they have a certain character. My jeggings and my shooties--such a staple--who would've thought?
Oh, and just check out these earrings! They are Indian fabric covering half-moon wood covered disks. They are so light and they show up in my hair--a problem for me lately. AND they have a different fabric on the reverse side! They were a museum purchase last week--don't they have the best little gifts? (a little reminder for Christmas gifts...)

Any other bolero/shrug fans out there?
