Five For Friday: Cardians

Although it's pretty warm here today, it's been much cooler this week.  So cool, in fact, that it's got me thinking about Fall.  Or, as I like to call it, Cardigan Season.

To celebrate the fact that Cardigan Season is nearly upon us, I've picked five cardigans I'd love to wear this season:

1. Nordstrom Blue Star Geo Print Cardigan - This cardigan is perfect for now, and for regions with milder Cardigan Seasons.  Also, the print is amazing and it's on sale.  Yay!

2. LOFT V-Neck Cardigan - In spite of the fact that LOFT stubbornly refuses to make these cardigans in Tall sizes (Why, LOFT?  Why?), I still like them.  Especially when they come in pretty colors like this orange-y nutmeg shade.

3. Target "Tribal" Print Cardigan - I'm showing the back of this cardigan so you can get the full effect of the awesome mix of colors and prints.  The front is similar, but with buttons.  Available in plus sizes too.

4. Gap Merino Wool Cardigan - The beautiful berry color of this cardigan is everything to me.

5. Modcloth "You Heard That Bright" Cardigan - For some reason I already own several navy blue cardigans.  And yet I still feel like I need *this* navy blue cardigan.  I mean, who doesn't need a navy blue cardigan with multi-colored zigzags??

How about you, Reader Friends?  Are you excited for Cardigan Season?


Not Impressed

So, this combination of cardigan and dress drove my coworkers crazy:

Dress: Old Navy  Cardigan: thrifted (similar)  Sandals: Dune London "Ivanna"

They assured me that they liked outfit well enough, but complained that it doesn't match.  I agreed, but offered that it *does* go.

They did not look impressed with that explanation.

Happy Friday, All!

Bright and Stripe-y

Like much of what I wear, today's outfit features a bright and some stripes:

In this case, a very bright bright and some very stripe-y stripes:

But, what can I say?  I like what I like:

Blouse: LOFT  Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack
Skirt: Ann Taylor (similar)  Sandals: Camper (similar)

And what I like is bright and stripe-y.

Happy Wednesday, All!

A Whole Lotta Plum

Today's outfit features a whole lotta plum:

And a tiny bit of turquoise.

Oh, I could have scared up some plum earrings and gone head-to-toe plum, but, as we all know, when in doubt, I choose turquoise:

Blouse & Pant: LOFT
Earrings: gifted (similar)  Shoes: Franco Sarto

It's just how I roll.

Happy Monday, All!

Small Victories

Remember last week when I said it was so hot that I basically had to wear summer dresses every day? Well, that is no longer true.  I mean, I'm still wearing summer dresses:

But now it's because it's warm enough that I *get* to wear summer dresses every day; I'm no longer being forced into it by unreasonable levels of humidity.

Today's particular summer dress is a floral shirtdress (because of course):

I paired it with a pre-knotted belt because when I try to knot belts on my own, they don't look remotely right:

I also wore my increasingly ubiquitous lace-up sandals and bright green earrings:

Dress: thrifted  Earrings: Kate Spade New York
Belt: LOFT (similar here & here)  Sandals: Dune London via Nordstrom

To recap, it's gone from stupidly hot to pleasantly warm and I didn't have to try to knot my own belt.  These are small victories, but I'll take them.

Happy Thursday, All!
