a colorful cardigan

Cardigan: c/o Sheinside (on sale!), Dress: Kohl's (on sale!), Clutch: c/o Hearts, Necklace: Sophistifunk, Boots: Kohl's (on sale!)

Isn't it funny how sometimes the days you feel like you have absolutely nothing to wear also turn out to be the days that you end up loving your outfit? I've found that all it takes is a little creativity within my closet and a few staple items to complete a look. My main problem when shopping is that I absolutely LOVE statement pieces, like this cardigan, but don't tend to gravitate towards a lot of neutral pieces because they're just not as fun to shop for. As I've gotten older, I've realized that less is more and that a simple black maxi dress, like this one, can be styled numerous ways and help to minimize my wardrobe.

  5. I just ordered that cardigan! It's beyond fabulous! I loved how you paired it with a black maxi. I think it would be great in the summer time over a bikini!

  27. So glad I ran across your blog, loving your style! I love love everything about this outfit. Although I'm not sure if it would look as good on me. I feel like the print and length might swallow my 5'2" frame. Thoughts?
