Cardigans will forever be my wardrobe essential – especially during the fall, but I like to wear them year-round. I typically pair them with jeans (like I did above) for a simple weekend outfit, with loungewear if I’m feeling lazy but want to sort of look put together, or with a dress to work because the office typically feels like the Arctic Tundra.
I had eyed this cardigan for a while and was really only undecided because I couldn’t figure out which color I wanted it in. It also comes in grey and nude, but when I noticed this one in the loungewear section at my local Madewell, I thought, “AHA! Finally a cardigan color I don’t own!” (I’m pretty cardigan obsessed in case you haven’t noticed.) This one is super soft and I’ve ACTUALLY worn it in every scenario I described above. I like wearing it with joggers and my favorite soft tee when I’m lounging and I wear it quite often to work – most recently paired with this shift dress and shoes.
What’s your favorite way to wear a cardigan? And what are your favorite brands for fall clothes? I’d love to know what my readers like. Leave a comment below!
There’s nothing better than feeling fall in the air! The past few weekends have been really busy, so it was amazing to spend this one in Charlotte enjoying the weather and all of the amazing festivals that have begun. If you live in the CLT area, make the trip to Belmont for the Chinese Lantern Festival. It’s gorgeous and runs until the end of October! This was my first year visiting the Yiasou Greek Festival (unfortunately ended this weekend), and I have to say the food is worth braving the crowds for!
I was more than happy to break out some of my favorite sweaters this weekend. This sweater is one of my all-time favorites. It’s super soft and I love the bell sleeves… unless I’m trying to walk through a door wearing it. Have you ever had your sleeve get caught on a door handle when you’re trying to walk through it?! It’s really funny for everyone around you, trust me.
I found a sweater identical to mine and some cute bell sleeve sweaters in a lot of different colors, all under $60!
This weekend was one for the books. My boyfriend Ed and I traveled to Savannah, Georgia to stay at the amazing Ballastone Inn. There will be a post coming on that – as well as a Savannah weekend travel guide – later this week! Previously, I had visited the city once and didn’t have the opportunity to see much, so we spent a lot of time exploring by foot and riding bikes. Everywhere you turn, there’s another incredible home as unique as the last. Elegant staircases and dramatic entryways surrounded by spanish moss are the norm. It’s unlike any city in the entire country.
If you’re visiting Savannah for the first time, be sure to visit West Jones Lane. The houses are incredible and we were so lucky to find it completely empty on Sunday. I wore this Free People Maxi Dress and it’s one of the dreamiest dresses I’ve ever owned. It’s flows perfectly when I walk and it’s perfect for date night or as a wedding guest dress!
