oversized cardigan: Zara - lace cami top: Forever21 - boyfriend jeans: H&M - sandals: Birkenstock Salina
This cardigan has proven to be the most perfect item to easy my style from summer over indian summer to fall. A couple of years ago, I threw out almost all of my cardigans because I was sick of how frumpy and twee they made me look and feel. But recently I realized that nice cardigans are actually a great basic for any wardrobe, and that I would just need to stay away from form fitting, classical button up cardigans (the kind of cardigan you'd see in a twin-set).
THIS particular oversized cardigan? Love at first sight. I spotted it on the Zara website and headed over to the store during my next lunch break. It was just as nice as I'd imagined it to be, so I bought it as my first fall piece and I have been wearing it literally everyday since for the past three weeks. I wear it as a coat slash cardigan, and the oatmeal-esque colour is incredibly versatile.
For this look, I paired it with my trusty birkenstocks, boyfriend jeans and this lace cami I found among the last sales deals at Forever21. My boyfriend quite likes it. It works really well with the type of relaxed trousers I've been wearing a lot at work lately. And it makes me feel really sexy. Which is always a good thing.
