Outfit of the Day: The Joy of a Gin Cardigan.

What's with the face? Don't I look sad? Or irritated? Or like I'm missing something? Maybe I'm cold? Definitely that. Winter: Still The Worst. 

Thankfully I now have a gin cardigan of my very own so I won't freeze to death! It's the Juliette collarless sweater-blazer from J.Crew, which bought this during the post-Christmas sale craziness and I looooove it. It's basically a comfy bathrobe in work-appropriate, sleek cardigan form:


It's so great! Warm and drape-y and you can throw it over anything to look more pulled together. Mine is "heather charcoal" but it comes in a bunch of great colors, including a rugby stripe. It's a generous fit (I'm wearing a small) so if you're between sizes, size down. 

I'm wearing it over an ancient LOFT Utility blouse that I should probably retire, but the print is so pretty! They don't currently seem to have any right now in a print but they do have it in a very nice stripe and some other pretty solids in the henley style

My black jeans are Madewell mid-rise skinny and I am wearing them too much. It's legit become a problem. They also make them in an 11" rise which I am not sure about. I have a pair of 11" rise jeans (this pair) and I love the look but I have to unbutton them after lunch. On to details:

I was trying to take a pic of my earrings (you can see them better in this entry) but kind of failed. They're by Amano studio and they're so fun and light. My necklace is my Argento Vivo labradorite pendant, which is sold out, but how pretty is this labradorite necklace? I also love this one by Gorjana

My boots are an older style by Cole Haan but I would say this newer style of Chelsea boot is probably very similar. And I'm carrying my Longchamp le pliage cuir for a little bit of color. Here's the smaller size in a different shade of red and here's mine in the bigger size. The medium is still available in a very fun dark pink, as well!

  1. I have three of those sweater/blazers, and I love them. I always get compliments on them when I wear to work. And, yes, they even make leggings and a long tank top look decent.
