Angie's blog post yesterday about current cardigans hit home for me - I have always been a jacket girl. I love the structure a jacket can give an outfit. I used to dislike that lack of structure that cardigans have - I would feel sloppy in them. But I'm loving some of the current cardigans that have more drape and shape to them. So time to bust out the new EF Dark Tulip asymmetrical cardigan!
I started the outfit with my black marble-effect tube skirt and added a simple black knit tank. I would like to find a similar weight knit tank with a v-neck - I feel a search coming on. Over top of that is my new cardigan. I realize that the way the front cuts in it can look like the cardi is done up - but it is open and has movement when you walk. The merino wool blend is oh so soft and comfy. The weather is funny these days - it's quite cool in the morning, freezing in my office, and then quite warm when I come out of work at the end of the day. So although a wool cardigan and bare legs may seem a little bit seasonally confused, that's because the WEATHER is a little bit seasonally confused - lol!
For footwear I chose my simple pointy toe kitten heel pumps and for accessories, my gold watch and wedding band, black satchel handbag, red specs and red lipstick.
Things have been incredibly busy at work these days - anyone who works in a hospital is probably aware of the HICS structure and I am part of the HICS Ebola Planning. It is exhausting and intense and I have missed you all the last two weeks. Not sure yet when I'll be back more regularly.
Anyway - what are your thoughts on the outfit? Does it work? Is anyone else starting to fall in love with cardigans after swearing off them? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
