cardigan sweater

Sweater Girl

A cardigan can do more than just go over something else you are wearing.  I didn’t want to wear the ubiquitous white shirt again with this full skirt and sling backs (another pair of easy to walk in Louboutins) so the idea that I had seen before to use a cardigan as a shirt instead came to mind.  This look is perfect for the office especially if you work in one of those oh so cold refrigerated ones  or any time you want to mix up your look some.  One slight problem, if you are the least bit busty you may fall prey to the dreaded ‘gap’ between buttons; it happens, shirts too.  Safety pin to the rescue, wear a cami underneath or if you are feeling daring, unbutton one more button!  And remember, you can always do this look with the cardigan untucked or worn traditionally.

I revert to such a kid when wearing any dress or skirt I can twirl in like this one, hence the one pose.  Hey! fashion can be fun too 😉

Until next time♥

Sheath Dress with Cardigan and Peep Toe Pumps

Shift or sheath…I get them confused sometimes but I believe that the shift dress has pretty much straight lines while the sheath has more shaping to it which means this happy yellow number is an empire waist sheath dress.  Thank you Google!  But back to the look here.  It was a warm and sunny day for a change and I felt like wearing a dress that made me feel happy and spring like so I pulled this number out of the closet.

I love the bright yellow of this sun dress which I topped with a 3/4 sleeve cardigan, threw on my peep toe pumps and went out for lunch with the hubs.

Until next time ♥
