cozy cardigans

Been running a little late the past few mornings... not enough time to snap photos and post before work!  But here's yesterday's outfit.... I'm so glad it's finally getting and staying cooler during the day!  

This nubby black wrap cardigan is a favorite winter purchase from two years ago - it's the perfect layering piece!  I love that it's short-sleeved but thick - I can throw it over light fall and spring items for when there's just a slight chill in the air, or pop it over other sweaters for mega-warmth!

Black Tights - Merona via Target
Gray OKC Boots - Banana Republic
Gold Cuff - Coach

And here's todays... only slightly worse for the wrinkles!  The "bold sun" is definitely my favorite of my Heritage Cardigan obsession collection - I think it's a perfect example of a shade of yellow that works well for most skin tones and hair colors!  Blonds can wear yellow!  

And, um, I really can't gush about these GAP Boy Fit trousers enough... Peppermint Bliss spoke to my soul today, describing her quest for the perfect, casual, boyfriend-jeans-centered look... I look like a frumptastic sausage person in boyfriend jeans... and I've tried on muchos.  BUT!  These pants are a bit like the work version of the boyfriend jean... and they are actually flattering (although, I'm not sure the photos depict that so much... hmmmm... hopefully I'm not just delusional) - L-O-V-E, LOVE!

  10. Beautiful boots! I had a 50% off BR coupon & went in to get them but sadly they were fresh out of my size. Sad day.
