Cardigan Love

So far the most important thing I’ve learned from this remix challenge is to limit the number of cardigans I include in my 30 items. I’ve now run out of shirt options to go with this fun polka dot cardigan, so I’ve resorted to pairing it with a second cardigan underneath. On second thought, I actually love this look so maybe cardigans really are the best option!

As a side note, you see that little patch of snow I’m standing on? Well, that’s an example of the amount of snow it takes to have a day off of school for a “snow day” around here. Not that I’m complaining. I fully appreciated being able to sleep in to 11 Thursday morning. I just would have loved it even more if we had a real snow day!

    Barney Legs

    I’ve worn this purple heart printed dress a few other times, but never really liked the way my outfits turned out. I guess I just needed a pair of Barney purple tights to make it work! Even though I love color, I have been a little hesitant to go for all out bright tights. I’ve worn navy blue, olive green, carmel brown, and maroon, but those have all been neutrals or subtle colors. However, these babies are full on color! And with a mostly black ensemble like this, I love it!

    Pink Elephant

    I’ve really enjoyed playing with different proportions and silhouettes during the 30 for 30 challenge such as wearing a longer sweater over an A-line skirt. While I’m not going to give up my go to look of tucked-in tops, high-waist skirts, and cardigans, I am going to make an effort to mix things up more often.

    My favorite part of this outfit is the pink enamel elephant pendant my friend gave me for my birthday. I’ll have to take a detail picture of it the next time I wear it!
