Oh, yessss. This cardigan. Before you wonder why I am sharing layering pieces of any kind right now (IT’S ALMOST SUMMER, CAMS), let me explain. This gauzy, pretty Free People Cardigan is one of my most favorite purchases to date (and I do not say that without realizing the weight of that statement). It’s lightweight, casual enough to be worn with everyday get-ups and just so damn cool looking.
I had been looking for a jacket-type cardigan all Fall and Winter, but never came across one that wasn’t the usual classic, preppy style (which is all well and good, but I wanted something different, ya know?). Well, FP got me with this one. I’ll have to hang it up, with the swelteringly hot Carolina weather that is sure to arrive here soon, but am totally fine with that…because it will be all ready for me to grab when the windy Fall mornings and evenings return.
Either way, it’s a good one, ya’ll.
cardigan: Free People Get Your Gauze Cardigan – also found at Nordstrom (if you prefer ordering from there). I also ran into their Brentwood Cardigan, which looks like it may be a bit thicker, for all of you that live in a cooler climate. TTS.
top: Madewell Whisper Cotton Crewneck Tee – definitely a great basic tee, but thin. It comes in a few different colors. TTS.
shorts: rag & bone Cutoff Shorts – my favorite pair of shorts right now. They say they fit TTS, but I think you could maybe go down a size. They stretch out as the day goes on.
bag: old Sole Society – I’m loving the new Stark Cross body (and it comes in a few pretty, light colors).
earrings: Nickel & Suede Leather Earrings – my favorite earrings…wear them almost every day. I can barely tell I’m wearing them, they’re so lightweight, which I really appreciate. They come in a variety of colors and sizes.
