I’ve had this cashmere cable cardigan in my closet for a year or two now but I’ve only worn it outside my apartment once or twice. This might sound silly but it makes me feel older than I am — specifically, like a suburban mom. Will saw me wearing it around my apartment once and asked me what on earth I was wearing… and I totally get it. On the one hand, it’s possibly the coziest thing I own. On the other, waring it with leggings and ballet flats, I look like I should be hopping into a huge SUV and schlepping my kids to soccer practice. But I think I’ve finally figured out how to wear it: with white jeans and riding boots. Oh and a faux fur infinity scarf, because it’s been my saving grace this winter.
Goodnight Macaroon pearl studs ℅ // Faux fur infinity scarf // Cashmere cable cardigan (similar) // J.Crew white t-shirt // Michael Kors double leather strap watch // Henri Bendel Carlyle tote bag ℅ // Lilly Pulitzer white jeans // Kate Spade riding boots (similar)
Am I crazy or do you see what I mean? Maybe it’s because I’m 5’1″ and the long cardigan kind of envelopes me but I think the heeled riding boots help it feel more appropriate for a 25-year-old. Or maybe I just stick to wearing it inside. 😉 Weigh in in the comments!
