You say Tomato, I say Really Bright Red

Hi everyone :)
I am a summer cardigan kind of gal. I don't prefer to show my arms - all jiggly, and stuff... 
It would be a better option to firm them through exercise, but let's get real. If you are over 40 and have gained/lost weight many times throughout your life, the jiggle factor can remain as loose skin. Sorry, younguns, it's true. My advice would be to try and sustain a relatively constant weight and keep them nice and fit. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of surgery...
I've bought lots of thin cardigans over the years and have found that it's worth it to invest in good quality. The cheapo's may last through the season, but they are pilled within one wear.
This one wasn't really expensive (at 24.99 - TJ Maxx) but it was originally $68 buckaroos. 
I can already tell this one is a winner. It's by Joseph A. I was shaking when I pulled out the credit card, but now I'm over it ;) Goodwill can really spoil a girl!

Hat's off to you, Reva! I love love love this outfit- the color combo- mint and tomato- you are a veritable garden of earthy delights. The floral, the sweater, and those glasses all so adorable. Love the nude boots how they are perfect for the saturated colors in your ensemble, and I love the joy of the hat!

Turquoise and red is a favorite combo of mine, so of course I'm digging this outfit! I refuse to give in to the underarm jiggles, 15 min tricep workout 5 days a week and it's all good baby! Love the photo of you tossing your hat.
