I think I over-dosed on cardigans while nursing. Since I stopped, uh, TWO years ago, up until recently I hadn’t been able to even look at another cardigan without breaking out in hives.  I literally wanted to run screaming.

But, you know, time marches on blah blah blah and suddenly I’m all “CARDIGANS?  WHAT ARE THESE WONDROUS PIECES OF CLOTHING” so now they’re suddenly a STAPLE.

Cardigans Win On Spring(ish) Days

First of all, if there’s any doubt in anyone’s mind as to whether or not Pax can or can not make it down the block without being carried….he wants to make his thoughts on the topic CRYSTAL CLEAR.

Sexy Cardigan:  Not An Oxymoron! (Date Night Edit)

As I’ve mentioned before, my date nights typically involve a ton of walking so more often than not, I’m in flats.  Also, since I tend to equate cardigans with words like cozy and frumpy….to bust one out on date night means that I need something seriously drapey, and maybe even a little sheer.

flats: old ShoeMint, but these pointy-toe ankle-wrap flats by Mel are very similar – the key differences being the perforated leather (nice!) and the colors are swapped – the ankle strap is nude, which will elongate the legs and work better with thicker ankles.

sunnies: haha I just realized that I stuck my actual glasses on top of my head!

necklace: Rebel Pendant, Stella & Dot
