Concrete Catwalk // Cardigan Combo

November 18, 2013

I know what you’re thinking…

“She has totally lost it.  Two cardigans at the same time?  Way too much to handle on a Monday morning.”

While I’d love to tell you that I have some spectacularly meaningful reason, or ambitious intention to start a new trend, the truth is this: I already know that I love the color combo of mixed teals and blues with these gold pants, and after buttoning the first cardi, I was simply in too much of a hurry to change it out for the darker one, so I just added to the pile and actually kind of like the way it turned out!  Plus, it made for a SUPER cozy stroll to church on a gloomy Sunday morning.  :)

The key here is imagining that the bottom layer (one of my favorite basics from Old Navy!) is actually a blouse, and then sticking with a tone-on-tone color combo to keep from looking a little too much like Rainbow Bright.  (…Though the gold pants DO make me feel a lot like a super hero.)

Click through the jump to see the rest of the look + outfit details, and I hope you have a lovely start to the week! XO

P.S. – I forgot how much I love headbands with short hair!  Thinking of going a bit shorter with my length… What do you think?

P.P.S. – Old Navy, Gap & Banana Republic are all offering 35% off your sitewide order (30% off at Piperlime!) today and tomorrow, when you enter the code “MERRY” at checkout.  Let me know if you get anything, and then tell me WHY ONLINE SHOPPING FEELS SO GOOD ON A MONDAY?!

    I love your blog – I always see the unexpected & that makes me happy. I’m a fan of the two cardi style – looks cute! As for your hair – I say shorter! It’s fun to stand out from the crowd.
