3 Ways: Casual Oversized Cardigan

Sweater weather is here! But as much as I love a good fall weather sweater, I’m more of a fan of fall cardigans. The comfier and more oversized the better, in my opinion. It just feels like wrapping yourself in a comfy but stylish blanket. I wear mine to death and am definitely on the hunt for some new ones for this season.

 Cardigans are also great because they are so versatile! So today I’m styling one of my favorite die-hard cardigans from Forever 21 in 3 casual styles.

#1


Top/Leggings/Bag/Shoes

 This is my weekend errand-running uniform for chilly days. Grocery shopping, quick coffee run, farmer’s market- you name it.  I’m a sucker for all-black, especially in the fall, and I love having this creamy neutral oversized cardigan to pull it all together. This outfit is always on repeat because it’s lazy girl chic at it’s finest- somewhat pulled together but oh-so comfy! I got this t-shirt from Target and I swear I’m going to go back and buy 3 more in assorted colors- it’s so soft!

Dress/Bag/Shoes (Similar)

 This look is perfect for us California girls who have to deal with half cool/half still-warm days. This dress is so versatile and comfortable and it’s the perfect length to wrap up in the cardigan. I’ve also dressed it up with a statement necklace and nicer heels. Short booties elevate this to a look you can wear meeting friends for lunch or on a day date.

Fall Transition

Happy happy Monday!

I am so excited for fall to hurry up and get here. Seeing my favorite bloggers + stores starting to bring out the fall trends has me dying for the weather to drop 25 degrees.

Unfortunately, we’re in that weird time of the year here in California where it’s cool and breezy up until about noon, and then it warms up in the afternoon.

So today I’m sharing my favorite transitional piece- long sleeved rompers!

They’re perfect for this time of year because they’re super versatile and such an easy look to throw together. They can be dressed up with wedges or booties and a statement necklace or dressed down with a pair of flats and scarves.

Rompers are also insanely comfy, so you won’t feel uncomfortable hot when the day heats up. I also love to throw a chunky cardigan over my romper in the morning- so cozy! I prefer my rompers that have sleeves because I find them to be more comfortable and if it’s not cold enough to require a full cardigan, the sleeve provides some coverage.

Target Fall Staples

Happy Labor Day!

Fall is approaching, but it definitely doesn’t feel like it in California yet- boo! Regardless, I’m slowly starting to build up my fall wardrobe staples.

These are simple but necessary pieces for the fall that I’ve needed to re-stock for a while. I love having fun, stylish statement pieces for fall (hello chunky sweaters + chic boots!), but it’s also good to have solid staple pieces that can be mixed with anything. We made a trip to Target this weekend to look at things for Carl, but of course we left with a few pieces for me as well! ;)

Black Jeans
  Even though we all practically live in leggings during the cooler months, it’s always good to have a solid pair of structured black jeans. They can help dress and outfit and are perfect for shorter sweaters! Mine were getting worn out so it was definitely time for a new pair and Target is currently having a sale on denim!

Labor Day White Looks + Sales

I am so ready for this long weekend. Although end of August + September kicks off a crazy time for us (literally a birthday a week starting today- happy birthday, mom!), fall is my favorite season and I can’t wait to jump into it.

 

LaborDay2017.pngI’m not one to follow the no white after Labor Day rule. I wear white during all 4 seasons because I like it and it makes me look tan- need I say more? And since this week has been insanely hot + humid, this weekend could not be more perfect for cool, white Labor Day looks. And if you don’t want to celebrate with white, check out the killer Labor Day sales- some of which begin as early as today and tomorrow!

2017 Fall Trends

I know it’s still summer (especially here in California) but I cannot tell you guys how impatiently I’m waiting for fall to come. The seasonal drinks, holidays, decor- I am 100% here for it all. But above all that, I love love love fall fashion and I’m so excited for this year’s trends.

I’ve spent the last 4 years in the Midwest during the fall, which is definitely different that California fall. But I think that these three trends are extremely doable no matter which coast you’re on!

Statement Sleeve
This is probably my absolute favorite trend of the moment and one that will probably pop up a lot on the blog. A fun statement sleeve instantly elevates any outfit in my opinion and I love that you can get them in such a variety- off the shoulder, with cut outs or a dramatic high collar.
