(LOLOLOLOL. You guys, you deserve so much better than this. I know. These pictures are just terrible. Also? I was totally wearing my old glasses, which I wear around the house to keep my new glasses, well, new, and I totally forgot. I noticed it while I was sitting in the car waiting for it to warm up. So I ran in and switched, but it was too late for new pictures. Which is a SHAME because I feel like new glasses go so much better with this than old glasses. So for those of you who got all excited hoping I was going back to them…sorry. I am not.)
I got a few comments about the layering cardigan. YES. Layer those cardigans. The thing about most of these newfangled over-sized sweaters is that that are too big to go under a jacket, and too open of a weave to keep you warm. Enter the layering cardigan. Mine is American Apparel and I have been using them this way for a couple of years. They are expensive. I won’t even pretend. But they are also really well made and the perfect weight for year round. As a layer in colder moths and alone in the warmer months. They are great cardigans for tossing in your bag in Summer, for when you get where you are going and they are getting all crazy with the AC up in there.
And when you wear them as a layer, it’s up to you how to go about de-layering during the day. Some days I wear the AA cardigan as my office cardigan, and some days I wear whatever comfy sweater I’ve thrown on top of it.
Either way, the layering is a win/win situation. Warm enough outside, options inside.
I maybe ought to be offended about what those big ole pockets appear to be doing to my hips, but I don’t e’en curr. This cardigan is so comfy. And I love the shorter sleeve.
I suspect this dress will join it’s friend the Old Navy Denim Skirt in the "dead to me for 6 months" pile come Spring. It’s too short without leggings. But it sure is cute with!
*ETA* for those interested THIS is the cardigan I use as my under layer.
